The thing is that he even screwed up the uniforms, they are clownish looking.  

"So what do you do for a living?" "I own the Jets." "OK....but what do you do?" "I ruin the Jets" "OK...but weren't they already ruined?" "I ruin them more"

There it is folks. Just wanted to share. When uniform changes are a key accomplishment, well...just let that one sink in. (I do think he did the right thing getting Douglas here and letting him p

I served him a drink once when I was a bartender (He did a Polo Match in South Florida back in 1990 or so). Nice enough guy. Thank God I was prepped for what a "Pimms Cup" was. 

 

His security detail guys were literally the coolest MoFos I've ever met to this day. All former SOE/SAS dudes, and every guy was like James Bond, with that chill and friendly but "ready" vibe that all Professional Killers have...same as the Delta guys I encountered at the School of the Americas in Ft. Benning.

 

Anyway, we delivered the bomb....

What professional career? He's a trust fund baby. He's never worked a day in his life.

It’s funny they tout his being a member of the Johnson & Johnson family but he never worked for the company. It’s like giving Paris Hilton credit for the success of the hotel chain.

I’ve been screaming this for over a year. he has NOTHING on a wiki page.  he wakes up, has maids, butlers and has done absolutely nothing with his life. 
 

His claim to fame is giving away money and hiring Joe Douglas...   

For those of us old enough to remember he is Dudley Moore’s Arthur . 

That was a great movie!

Currently the Jets are worth $3.2 billion.

That's one hell of a resume.

And you don’t even have to put a professional product on the field to see your investment increase exponentially....Best Investment Ever...just a perfect one for the Blacksheep Johnson Brothers, who couldn’t run a corner bodega for a profit.

Born with a horseshoe up there a*s...and it never left.

Johnsons may well have the most profitable team in the league.

You need to remember your Jets history.

We've had 11 winning or non-losing seasons out of the 20 the Johnson's have owned the team.  If Pennington weren't made of glass, it would have been 14 out of 20.

We've made the playoffs 6 times, played in 12 playoff games, and won 6 of them.  Compare that to the Bills and Dolphins who have 1 playoff win since the Johnson's took Jets ownership, combined.

Half of the seasons in the last 25 years we are .500 or better.  A quarter of the seasons the last 25 years we make the playoffs.  Compare that to teams like the Bills since Kelly and the Dolphins since Marino, we look positively dominant.  And we never had a Hall of Fame quarterback, either.

Thing is, we're not even close to the worst franchise in the NFL in the last 25 years.  We're somewhere in the middle.  Like every good NFL team that had a decent 15 year run we're in the down period and trying to build ourselves back up.

Woody didn't do a bad job at all, either from increasing the value of his investment 5X or by the product on the field.  Chin up, peeps.

A friend asked me to review his CV once to apply for a job in Finance. He still had his first summer job on there -- waiting tables or something -- I told him to drop it.

The Johnsons probably still have "came out of the right wiener" on their CVs.

I'd just like to add that during the Saleh intro presser, I noticed he has tiny tiny hands. Like porcelain doll tiny. Trump tiny. Its strange... with that bulbous cranium of his.

Reminds me of...

Great analysis.  I guess it’s the last few years, especially under Gase, where they were totally uncompetitive in many double digit losses that got me down.  Just a bad run.  
 

I have great expectations though with Saleh running the ship.  I have to give the Johnson’s credit for landing him.

Yeahhhhhh, but that gain wasn’t made in a vacuum. I’d say pretty much every nfl team has made about the same % gain over that time. The popularity of the game and exploding tv contracts in the last 2 decades brought these valuations, and that wasn’t due to the Jets or anything they did. Also, there is tremendous scarcity with available NFL teams for ownership. I would bet any team coming on the market would sell at a premium to its value. Besides, if any member on this board happened to have that kind of generational wealth handed down from a great grandfather, they would have made the same decision to buy the jets from Leon.  
 

The guy who put his money on Apple when they were making computers in a garage or again when Sculley had destroyed them in the early 90s, or the guy who put money on Bezos when he was writing his business plan for Amazon in the back of his car.....that would be a resume. I’m not knocking WJ for buying the Jets because clearly it was a good decision, but it wasn’t a business decision that was breathtaking or visionary or particularly genius.

You don’t think NFL popularity and media market money has exploded in the last 20 years? The advent of fantasy football alone has led to an explosion of popularity and revenue. Games and content are streaming on all kinds of devices, the nfl is playing games overseas, they even launched their own network in 2003. A LOT has happened in the last 20 years that caused a huge increase in revenue and valuation of an nfl team. 
 

So yeah, just looked it up, NFL went from 4 billion in revenue in 2001 to 15 billion in revenue in 2019. So yeah, the team value tracks very well with the overall revenue growth of the league, not to say anything of its expected continued exponential growth in light of the internet and increased media consumption not applicable in 2000.

Sort of like Andrew Cuomo, Frank Sinatra Jr., and all the Kardashians.

While I'm not a fan of the Johnsons esp Woody you do have to give them credit for diversity. Since 2001 the Jets have hired 3 African American head coaches, Herm for five seasons, Bowles for 4 seasons and now Saleh. It's a lot more than most teams and all of these guys are currently coaching and doing pretty well. Most NFL franchises have to be forced to even give a qualified minority coach an interview.
