[QUOTE=Limolady;4474276]After I meet him I will be able to say whether or not I like him, but my point is it's hard to differentiate when the jux of news is more about building a Tebow cult following instead of a team football following. Who is in charge of that?[/QUOTE]
[QUOTE=jetrider;4474298]I don't dislike Tebow, I hope he plays a huge role for us.
I just find it comical that Tebow in NY is like Ishmael in [i]Kingpin[/i], and at the rate he's going, I won't be surprised if he gets more "exposed" than Brett Favre did.[/QUOTE]
Frankly, it sounds like you don't hope he plays a "huge" role at all. Sounds like you want him to get sucked up and spit out of New York. Tebow is the media star right now and Sanchez is not, I think that's what upsets you most. But actively rooting against a guy on your team is just plain awful.
[QUOTE=Joe W. Namath;4473973]I cant wait till this guy is winning games for us this year. This is the best move Tanny has pulled off. Just sit back and watch fellas. Its going to be a great ride.[/QUOTE]

Everything hes posted up to now says you're right.
[QUOTE=Limolady;4474297]Who is in charge of making all these PR moves? Tebow went backstage to a play, posed for pics with cast members and now wants pic off Twitter. If the team has a pic of him getting sacked at practice, will his lawyers issue a ceast and desist because it's not the image he wants to portray? We'll just have to see how this all plays out in camp.
I do wish him luck in succeeding on the field.[/QUOTE]
Really, so you think that anyone can post your picture up on the internet and if you don't like it your making a PR move? Are you really this far over the top?
The rest is pure nonsense, over the top silliness that is pointless. You want to compare what the guy does for a living, where he expects to be covered by the press with his free, private time?
[QUOTE=bullitt929;4474345]The suggestion that Limolady is a hater is among the most absurd things I have ever read on this board.[/QUOTE]
It's why lurking here beats posting here by a mile. There's a small but HEAVILY annoying group of green colored glasses wearing, green Kool-Aid drinking, homer Jet fans who are quick to paint anyone who has something critical to say about the team or an individual Jet in a disparaging light. They'll disperse personal attacks like a young Jason Kidd but hide under the veil of "you're not a true Jet fan, you're just a troll" or use some childish moniker like SOJF or hater to deride those whose opinion or outlook may differ. And it's done in a manner that totally ignores the attacked person's reputation. As you said, L.Lady is no hater (her undying optimism can be borderline nauseating sometimes :P), but the last thing that anyone with a logical thought process would call her is "hater," especially when the point she raises is a fair one.
EVERY fan roots for their team in different ways. Mind numbing, ulcer inducing losses (of which the Jets have provided many) affects fans in different ways, just the same as winning does. However any fan who feels they MUST hold up the honor of the NYJ by telling others how to root for them simply needs to, well... get a f##king life.
