    MARA RIPPING THE JETS RIGHT NOW ON WFAN?

    These quotes were sent to me, so don't know about their accuracy 100%, but here goes:

    "The Jets never deserved to play the opening game in the new stadium"

    "They begged us to move in in 1983...we did it as a favor"

    "They're a second class team and if we had lost the coin toss, well, I don't even want to address that"

    "Let's just say everyone should be happy it landed for us"

    id be surprised if those were 100% accurate, and if they are the only one that is second class in this city is mara himself

    Actually, I thought he spoke in a respectful manner...

    That would be a hell of a story...


    if he actually said any of those things.

    Sorry, but that just smells like bull****.

    Sounds like stuff Francesa would say, but not an NFL owner.

    Isn't this the same guy who said he would never charge PSL's?

    I find it hard to believe he would use those exact words...

    I don't listen to WFAN anymore, mainly because of Francessa.

    Anything said on that show, and respectively the radio station itself, is second class, IMO.
