    Jets Cancel Hofstra Practice

    Jets Practice Update

    Hempstead, NY - With the start of the 2012-13 academic year and the hosting of the second Presidential Debate occurring soon, the timing of a number of campus maintenance projects within James M. Shuart Stadium and the campus community have had to be adjusted. Due to the altered maintenance schedule as a result of hosting the Presidential Debate, work on James M. Shuart Stadium will need to occur in the latter part of August.

    Therefore, due to the timing of this work, the University and the New York Jets agreed that the August 21 date would no longer be viable for the previously scheduled practice.

    Jets Statement -
    “We have had a great relationship with Hofstra University for many years and we understand the circumstances. Based on the timing, the team has decided to move the August 21 practice to MetLife Stadium. Although we’re sorry that the location of this year’s practice needed to be change, we are committed to remaining connected to our Long Island fans.”

    That's not me.

    I'm just glad that we don't have to have the players drag themselves out to a state we don't play in for fans we don't play for and towns they don't live in. No need for these token appearances on Long Island. It just tires the players out and is a distraction they don't need.

    I totally agree that taking the team out to LI in the middle of camp is tiring & a distraction, but no need to piss on the Jet fans who live there. Enjoy your trip to Cortland.

    Good. I will now be spending three of nine days in my wonderful seats in 104 watching the Jets. The 18th and 26th for the Giants and Panthers games, and the 21st for practice. Tremendous.

    Although Hofstra is one of the finer universities this country has to offer, I will gladly hit the Meadowlands as opposed to my alma mater.. Cant Wait!

    Has anyone attended the open Practices at Met Life in the past? Is it you sit anywhere or are they telling you where to sit?
