Sometimes it’s hard to tell, but this is a site for Jet fans

Tell you what.  I'll post my opinion, including sarcasm, and you post yours.  

And who is this "we" you refer to?  

Interestingly, I just took you off ignore today.  Lesson learned.

I’m trying not to blast individual posters but this is the problem.  There’s just this inability of a lot of people around here to even consider facts/opinions/statements that don’t subscribe to their “Jets will go 12-5” mentality.  I get it, this is pretty basic stuff across social media.

My question is what’s the point of posting your opinion if you want no part in defending it or challenging oppositions?

Oh, you are ABSOLUTELY right.  My bad.  Here I was approaching the Jets like I was watching my daughter's swim meet.  How could I be so wrong!

And Zach could NEVER improve between years one and two.  Can't happen.  Never has.

Troy Aikman, amoung others, says hello.

Zach absolutely can improve.  Your position is complaining about people who want to see it happen before they believe the Jets are a potential playoff team.

@slats… See what I mean?  This particular poster isn’t at all venomous or by any means a bad dude, but he’s taken a position that those of us who don’t share his view are apparently unaware that things can improve, shouldn’t watch, and (I think also) want to be miserable.

IMHO the Gallows thread adds to the negativity. Seems a little celebratory. We don't need a trophy case of banned posters.

Just IMHO.

I like it because it tells me why certain posters got banned.  And yes, sometimes the reasons are humorous or they’re people I don’t like, lol.

Again, these sort of posts happen on either side. Not much to moderate there. By all means, feel free to point out any strawman exaggerations. There’s no shortage here.

Tom Shane!!!  How you doing?  The reason I quit the Sean Deegan Jet website was because after Sean sold his site, everything changed in the format, and I really hated it.  That's why I left.

As a recently saved soul, I feel relief. Just hope that they win! Classic coke 

There's no possibility that could backfire on me emotionally in the future, right? 

The only way to be a Jets fan is to strap in and drink from the firehouse 

Bet on the over. Buy a Zach jersey. Watch milf porn every day

Choose life. 

P.V.O.

Under on the Bills is the smarter bet if you want to bet on the Jets IMHO.

I’m starting to believe that some people just don’t see the difference between these ideas:

Zach can’t improve.

I doubt Zach will improve.

I will wait to see if Zach improves before changing my opinion of him.

I do not want Zach to improve because of an opinion I’ve previously shared.

 

 

Personal belief is ancetodotal.  

Zach sucked but he more than made up for it by banging his moms best friend.

Yeah and the Jets are in a position they haven’t had themselves in for a while. You look at the roster and there’s talent. There are expectations this year. If Wilson is an anchor and is struggling in practice while a vet like Flacco can move the ball…I mean it’s worth pointing out?

It seems the intention of this post is a "Get on board or get lost". If it's not, I don't think you're doing a great job of communicating to the people you think you're communicating to.. If there's not much to moderate about that type of post then why does this thread exist? 

Why not post some examples then because you have not made it clear who you're actually trying to aim this at.. because if you're talking to the altronbrown's of the board who are new accounts and very clearly trying to elicit reactions.. well, this post doesn't seem like it's going to have an effect on them.

This is just chilling anyone who has any criticism of the team. "Watch out with the "negativity" that we don't define!".

Yeah, I've seen posters accusers others of this sentiment quite a bit these days.

The worst content on this site is the “I love Tom Shane” stuff. Dude takes other peoples talking points and makes them blend into an emotionally fragile ecosystem. He’s not Shakespeare. He’s a guy that folds his pizza like the rest of us.

Bump. Set.

I'm betting Tom Shane eats his pizza with a fork and knife. 

Spike.

Exactly what I hoped someone would say. Well done, Biggs. Well done.

Yeah the site has gone to sh*t tbh. What a nonsensical thread. The draft was genuinely insufferable and even as someone who liked it overall I got absolutely lambasted on here for any kind of mild criticisms towards things I'd already said I wouldn't like weeks/months earlier. Ironically it was the guy who started this thread who said I was just "being miserable" for criticising the Hall pick in the draft when I'd said as much months before.

I've been posting here since I was sixteen. I have stayed up until 4-5am countless times to watch this godforsaken franchise get destroyed and yet I've been called a troll more in the last year than ever before simply for criticising the Jets and the existing regime. 

The Jets have been objectively terrible for 11 years. Our GM of the decade is 6-27 since he had a full off-season. Zach Wilson may have been the worst starting QB in all of football last season. There are positives for sure and I hope we turn things around but to act like any and all criticism must be in bad faith is just ridiculous. 

I think at this point we just have to embrace the “troll” moniker for what it is — a cheap throwaway slur when an actual counterargument cannot be formulated. The usage of the same term for long term “negative” posters as for the burner accounts who vomit on the board for 20 minutes before getting banned, self-proves its absurdity.

Memories of '09, '10...

I think we win a Super Bowl one of those two years with league average QB play.

No joke - I'm hopeful that that situation can be parlayed into success for Wilson.  It's not football, obviously, but it was clear Wilson wasn't a leader last year, and the team undoubtedly rallied around Mike White more than him.

I'm hopeful that what supposedly happened, the way Zach handled it, and the way the team (and others rallied around him), has a positive impact on him as a leader of this team.

Why every Jets fan should despise Brett Favre.

I mean, maybe, I guess?  But, I'm not sure Favre was to blame for Tannenbaum building a championship caliber roster and then turning it over to rookie Mark Sanchez.  If ever there was a time for a stop-gap veteran, it was then.
