Classy move by the Jets in the News today. Most of you here know that I am a true NFL fan. I love the game and I love the 2 teams that the great city of New York are lucky to have. Given that fact some have issues with me being a Giants fan and a Jets fan at the same time. To me neither are rivals; For the Giants the rivals are the Cowboys, Eagles and Skins. And for the Jets its the Pats, the Dolphins and the Bills. The rivalry is hyped only by the media and some obnoxious fans. The 2 teams share a stadium and they share me as a fan. It just always amazes me that more New Yorkers cant feel the same way and how many of you out there dont believe that I can be a football fan for both teams.
The Jets surely showed football fans what a class act they can be today. Here is the ad that the NYJ ran in the New York Daily News.
The Jets congratulating the Giants on their Super Bowl XLVI win . . . You played with passion and toughness, capturing a hard-earned and well-deserved championship!
Aw. Ain't that sweet!??
And people think New Yorkers are cold and heartless.
Well, we know the truth, don't we?
I totally get your city alliance. I think it makes perfect sense.
Accordingly, I presume you are also a dual Yankees and Mets fan as well?
you know it!
Though my love for football surely outshines baseball. . .there aint nothing like a baseball subway series!
What can one expect from one who was born in da Bronx and grew up near Shea Stadium! Both teams, both sports are in my blood!
You go, wavegirl.
My dad grew up in da Bronx.
My son's father grew up in da Bronx.
I dad rode the LIRR past Shea every day to work in the Daily News Bldg.
My former cousin-in-law was (may still be) a manager at Shea.
I rode the LIRR past Shea many times, including summers working in "the city."
Small world here on HP!
When I moved over to the US I had a choice of three teams in my area: Eagles, Jets and Giants. Looking at the stats for the year, the Eagles only won two games so I decided to cheer the Eagles (still am a die hard Eagles fan!).
What no-one told me was that as an Eagles fan I was supposed to hate the Giants and the Jets - well they are my joint number two teams so I always cheer them when they aren't playing the Eagles or they are not in a race against the Eagles - so once the Eagles were eliminated I was cheering on the Giants and was super happy this weekend.
Now shhh, don't tell the other Eagle fans out there!!!
wow MM it sure is!
Though they renamed Shea something like CitiField to me it will never be anything but Shea Stadium!
I would expect nothing less from you then being a true fan of the sport! Sorry thought that the Iggles got you. Its tough being an Eagles fan from the get go . . most are born into it therefore without choice. .. You are extra special in that you chose them . .. The Eagles are lucky to have acquired you in more ways then one!
Gee. I guess the AFL-NFL War is officially over. This would have never happened back when Namath was playing. And I know for a fact that the Giants would have never done this for the Jets.
Glad everyone is getting along, though I haven't heard from my girlfriend Roe whose husband Vinnie is a Jet season ticket holder.
The words classy & Jets never go together in the same sentence...look at their coach...look at how fans got in trouble 4 pressuring women to take off their shirts by screaming a 4 letter word that sounds similar to J-E-T-S...it starts with a T if you can't think of it.. look at how they cried about the Pats taping while getting caught doing the same thing this past season.
Have to agree with you, MarkRFox.
On the surface, it was a classy thing to do.
In reality, a just another self-serving, let's put the public's attention one more time on ourselves, Jetsian thing to do.
Of the two teams, which one has always, always been in the limelight? ALWAYS!
Which one has a TV show that follows its training season (I can't stomach that show. Gag me).
Yeah, it looks like a nice thing to do. But it makes the Giants' win...
all about ME!

The Giants and 49ers were both underdogs this past weekend, and both came away with a win. Now they'll play each other for the right to advance to the Super Bowl. Who do you think will win this matchup?
