If you don't go to games are you a "real Jets fan"?

Recommended Posts

Personally I've only gone to a handful of Jet games in my life (the best being 41-0 over the Colts in the playoffs and the worst probably being Vinny T's opening day ruptured Achilles tendon) but I certainly feel like a "real Jet fan".  Just wondering what the consensus on the forum is.

Side note: I would absolutely never even consider paying for a PSL.  I've always been a sports fan but ticket prices are absolutely insane.

Please stop starting these type of threads. You KNOW the answer and the arguments that will ensue. 

 

You stop posting, I'll get off Cimini's payroll and stop posting his articles here.

Uhm, it's the offseason.  Also, you don't have to click on this post if you don't want to.

Just voicing the will of the people and trying to save your thread credibility, that's all. To hell with Max's server RAM!

Are you really a fan if you choose to subsidize this organization?

It's like NYC's welfare system: They think by throwing MORE money at it, the problem will go away, but actually it just emboldens the recipients to continue their misguided and floundering ways.

I wish I could go to a game.. you guys are lucky.

You pay your airfare and lodging. I'll treat you to a FREE game this year. I'll gladly email you the Tix.

And my generosity is mainly due to you ROCKING the SWEEEEET 80s/90s Kelly Green era on your avatar and Signature. 

 

Serious offer. :)

If I get the guts to do it this fall I'll let ya know :) I've got the money... just time (school/work) but ugh.. I've never been to an NFL game before.  Yeah.. living way out west.. it's hard.  But thank you for the offer :) 

**also edit thanks!  I'm holding out hope one day the logo I grew up with returns ;)

We get it.  You think Macagnan has drafted the next Favre (Petty) and the next Brady (Hack) in back to back seasons

Never said that.

What "WE GET" is that you contribute nothing positive or informative regarding the Jets. We get it, you HATE the current regime, I don't fault you for that and you are entitled to your opinion. Yet, you really don't add ANYTHING to the conversation except for false information and classic trolling statements that are meant to rile people up; you should be better than that, but sadly aren't. 

I sincerely don't get you being on this forum if you are just going to bash the organization, which you're entitled to I guess, but do realize you make it rather unbearable for the rest who want to hold valid debates and discussions without someone CONSTANTLY $hitting on the topic. 

I'm on the fence with Mac, and VERY disappointed in Bowles, but being a FAN of the team means you acknowledge the bad and hope for the good. You just keep beating a dead horse with "the bad" to the point that one asks what are you doing here if there's NOTHING you can contribute to a competent and NON-bashing debate amongst Jet fans?

How to simulate going to a Jets game:

1. Put $500 dollars in cash into an envelope and send it to a billionaire, who will hide that cash in the Cayman Islands. To get the full effect, add an extra $20,000 dollars for your Personal Freezer License.

2. Lock yourself in a freezer for four hours and think about how much your dad resented your birth. Try not to piss yourself. To get the full effect, piss yourself, collect it in a plastic cup, drink it, then send another $14 to the billionaire from Item 1.

3. Every five minutes, adopt a Staten Island accent and loudly explain to yourself how Kyle Clifton was actually better than Harry Carson. Use increasingly loud, drunken, combative and racist language. To get the full effect, have your two fattest neighbors squeeze into the freezer and start fistfighting.

4. Try to leave early, but ensure you can't open the freezer door by having your neighbor roll his barbecue grill in front of it. This is the parking lot simulation. To get the full effect, have your neighbor bash a Corona bottle against the freezer when you ask him to move the grill.

If you've experienced the promise of hope, of victory leading to an erection only spoken of in mythical brothels, only to have your dreams dashed in despair leaving your guts pouring out f your abdomen from a swift sword slash, as your head on a stake in some medieval sacrificial ceremony, as you stare into oblivion while the cold hard stare of truth and misery winks at you...then you're a Jets fan who has witnessed the mud bowl, the gastineu late hit, the fake spike, the fumbles in denver, the torn achilles, the butt fumble, etc.

Exactly Adonis beast. I think a fan is also measured by how much he longs for the games, (I'm rarely interested in a game if it's not a Jets game...) I still remember telephone numbers by the numbers of long time Jets whose jerseys are embedded in my mind...

I would be willing to wager I've watched the Jets play in more continents than 99% of board members. :D 

Just pop the "Real Jets Fan" trophy in the post ... :ph34r:

Financially not possible for "real fans" to have a requirement to attend games, 60-90k fans could not support a franchise, the NFL is the NFL because of TV, the real fans watch TV (the ad's) - buy those products and buy Direct TV

fact based answer - follow the money

I have an issue with the word "organization" within a NY Jets context.

If you define yourself by the your level of allegiance to a football team, or attempt to define others by that criterion, you ought to try to find some more meaning in your life.
