Thread: OT: The Unthinkable Merger

  1. #1

    OT: The Unthinkable Merger

    A future Giants-Jets merger.

    The stadium is already in place. The NFL is already over-expanded.

    Q: Would it be financially worth it to the Giants to buy the Jets for 860 mil in the next 5 years (making the Johnson's a 200 mil profit - more than covering their 70 mil westside loss from a few years ago)

    Yes?

    No?

    Maybe (with an explanation)

    More like the other way around. Johnson is worth about twice what Mara is.

    Absolutely f*cking moronic. Had to get this in before the dump.

    By the way, do you think this is some type of endearing quality you have? As if people view you as some bad boy of the board? Something to aspire to?

    Seriously, you sound like an idiot.

    Are you intoxicated?

    There are a million reasons why that would not work. I assume you're just making a joke, but here's reason #1.

    Why would the NFL take a team out of the #1 market in the country, a team with a 20 year waiting list for season tickets, that is building a state of the art facility?

    #2 The NFL is not hockey or baseball. Every team makes money.

    #3 This has to be a joke, or an "I'm bored and want to make a thread and have people look at me" thread

    But, the Mara's are more willing to spend and definitely have the connections to make it happen deep inside the NFL. Woody will always smart from that 70mil loss and reminds us he is not the type to make bold moves.

    Wouldn't that be just begging the Feds to get involved, since this would strike me as an anticompetitive maneuver?

    QFT

    When you do this, you make every other point you will ever say worth less.

    There is no way this is going in the dump. In fact, I'm thinking of making it a sticky as the prime example of a dumpworthy thread.

    Oh, and I fixed the poll.

    #4 The Giants would absorb Jets money.

    #5 The Jets absence would solve traffic and pollution probs with the city.

    #6 The combined team would be the best in the NFL (instead of 2 merely "good" teams)

    #7 No more QB issues.

    #8 Jets werent making much of a profit anyway (roughly equal to 29 teams)

    #9 Giants practice facility would suffice nicely

    #10No real rivalry between Jets and Giants anyway. Nothing interesting lost.

    Where do you come up with your thread topics? Who plants these ideas in your head?

    The NY Jiants.

    Hmmmm.

    It would move our past SB win total up a notch or two.

    I honestly have no idea where to begin. There is so much wrong here.

    Oh and #11 Jets fans proved on 2/3/08 that they can root for Giants players under the correct circumstances. The transition wont be nearly impossible for most Jets fans.
