Uncensored? 
Anyway nice one

IT IS A RELATIVE TERM lol.

We don't censor and delete Jets opinions about Lavernous Coles because the site owner is chatting with him. That is the big problem we were solving back in the day.  :)

Congrats @Maxman !!! 

JetNation is a second home for me and has been for over a decade! I love this place. 

Heartfelt Congrats on 15 years!!!!  

We're getting old man! :) 

Thanks Beans. I was 35 years old when the site launched. I had dreams, hopes and hair. It all seems like a distant memory now lol.

Does 100M views include or exclude the fapathon thread? I think that had about 50M on it own.

On a more serious note, congratulations and thank you for providing a great home to talk jests football, troll homers and play mafia all these years. I can't imagine how much more I might of been able to ruin in life had I not had the pleasure of spending so much time here. :D

Had to look that term up but yes I think your estimate might be low. That thread was like 84 million views. Chad Pennington had about 15 million on his own. Everything else gets what is left.

Lol! The ihop pic! Good job Phil and company!(yeah, you too Thor) 

now if the Jets could only stop sucking you may become the greatest message board in the world. 

Congrats! I’ll log in again for the 20th anniversary. 
 

 

That pic was in a folder of stuff from when the site launched, saved it all together. You go in this folder and most of it can't be used. But I am saving them for the book that will be published some day in the future.  :)

These were the best. I still like how Panzer shows up at the tailgate every year. He's like hey I just stopped over from Ireland. He seriously is the best.

Congrats JN!   And thanks @Maxman for everything!

That picture of Max and Shane tho....

Thank you man, you have produced so many good posts (and articles) over the years!

What's wrong with that photo, though? Just two dudes watching the Yankees and sharing a sausage sandwich.  :)

I will say this, I found a picture of Tom in the famous "Derek Jeter - Smedium" shirt. I was wrong, he actually fit into it. I legit helped to fuel a version of the events that weren't true. Tom fit in that shirt just fine.  My bad.

The Steelers stuff is still true, @T0mShane ran and hid when the Steelers fan confronted him at the first draft day party. That story will not change over time.

Best website that isn't porn (anymore).

Well we had that porn thing flying under the radar in the lounge for a while but the advertisers took care of that unfortunately.

I took a pic of @The Gun Of Bavaria in front of a Dunkin’ Donuts that night too lol I still have all the old (Kingsley era) giants stadium tailgating pics. I also have pics on my old blackberry from the last game at Giants stadium (10 years ago) when me and @De-Jet-Erate/Duane snuck in two plastic flasks of booze under our skull caps. I miss giants stadium lol

I haven’t seen panzer in a while. Last time he was wearing a Johnny Johnson jersey that was tight lol

all good times! Miss you guys!! Xxoo

 

 

You should go to a game this year. The Jets are what they are, the friendships make it worth it.

Truth:  It’s the mods. You guys are cool. Uncool mods are what ruined JI.  

Congrats JN, and thank you eternally for being such a welcoming lifeboat for ye JI castoffs, matey. 

SAR I

Thanks for saying that, I agree the mods here are what sets the site apart. They put up with a lot of crap and they check their ego at the door.

Thor also checks his coat at the door because he has a hard time fitting through it otherwise. But that's another story all together.

Congrats! Here’s to another 100 million views or whatever they’re called.

Think of it like this:

  • Someone logs on and reads one page of the site
  • Then that happens over 100 million more times

Seriously is crazy.

Hello.  Video is playful and gives the requisite information about the site.  I think it would have been better--and more celebratory--had you made mention of the great posters who over the years have made this place a must read.  

Happy Birthday, JN.

DefensiveFlickeringDorking-size_restrict 

Wanted to keep it as close to one minute as possible. The list of posters is SOOOOOO long. I wish I could thank everyone by name. But the top posters would end up being a 15 minute video because that is how many people have been important to this site.

BTJF was along with Matt from The Greenhouse the first two guys I met from the message board community. It really worked out just right, Matt's Greenhouse site was shutting down and we needed a place to go when I got an invite at JI from Brenda telling me about this new site and that I was invited to join (The Groucho quote about who would want to be  in a club with someone like me allowed in comes to mind). 

Damn the Jets had a chance that season too, Doug Brien two missed FGs  with 2 minutes to go for the win and a Championship game.

 

The old days before the Patriots dynasty were fun, the Jets always had a chance. The good news is the dynasty is over, so fun times are here again.  :)

Yeah, guess you're right.  Was just hoping it would bring back folks like Bronzy and Verde (or at least images 😂).  And maybe Garb, too.  lol

Bronzey is still here. I wish Verde was back here.

If Garb came back in 40 years, that would be too soon lol.

"Viva La JetNation" was the very post that got me banned from JI. I'm so glad they did. 

 

What a great group of people I've met over the years. Lots of memories. 

 

Congrats to Phil for keeping this place running. 

That is great! Man he used to hate seeing JetNation he would censor it every chance he got. Speaking of censorship, here is the mission statement that I wrote on 2/13/05. We seriously went from concept to site in a few days. I legit didn't go to bed before 4am for the first few months. Had like 3 hours sleep at most for a decent stretch in the beginning.

Thanks again everyone, 15 years and it has been a lot of fun. The best part is we are just getting started. We have the same passion and energy for all of this. Now we have more resources and the team has Sam Darnold. The best is yet to come.
