[QUOTE=copernicus;3429828]Maybe I'm not understanding this, help me if I'm wrong. The JETS use his image to promote a new stadium. An image that pays him nothing. He takes his own time to be a part of this and in the end is lied to like the rest of us. There were other options than Manhattan that were never explored. He is upset by this. Now he shouldnt go to games or be a fan anymore?...........
What makes him a fraud? He is a proud JETS fan that doesnt take a penny for the T SHirts sold in his image. ALL the money goes to families of widowed firemen.
Yeah, what a jerk...............[/QUOTE]
He's a fan when the team is good.
He disappears when the team is bad.
First, he was for the new stadium.
Next, he was against the new stadium.
Now, he's for the new stadium again.
He took the 2008 season off, pouting about Woody.
He's front-and-center in the 2009 season, basking in the glow of Ocho.
He's gone from a good guy/average fan to a pompous jerk, walking around as if he's J-Lo and Jets fans are his personal paparazzi.
His blue-collar beer-drinking demeanor may have represented the fans in 1985, but no more. He'll probably get laughed out of New Meadowlands Stadium by white collars paying $10,000 per PSL.
