Prior to that the WSS project was upheld by all levels of state and city government and the courts until one out of three advisors( S **thead Silver) on the final Govt panel blocked the construction of the WSS.
Then the idea of a stadium in Queens came up and Woody said he was not interested. I can understand all sides but SAR please use some truth when trying to spin this to your way of thinking! Just sayin'.......
I think it is the Queen's thing that bothered me the most. Up until then I thought Woody was a man of his word and truly cared about the team and fans. I went the Queen's stadium rally and it was a joke. Woody wanted no part of Queens because it wouldnt be as lucrative as Manhattan. This was the first strike, then Favre, now Tebow, throw in PSLs and $50 to park and Woody has been exposed. Meddeling owner who knows nothing about football. Its all about the JETS as a corporation for Woody, as long as they are relevant in the papers. What a ass clown our owner turned our to be. We now pay the price. Mangini couldnt care about the back pages, didnt help Woody's cause. Same goes for players like Cotchery and Thomas Jones. Too quiet, to classy. I get the feeling Rex will be around for awhile, he adds to the circus which the media loves.
God help us as JETS fans with Woody Johnson as owner.
