    Don't worry about it fellas. Not yet anyway. I have a strong feeling that the league is going to get the "angry" Jets this season. This team, especially the defense, might even be able to inspire some life into the hopeless season ticket holders.

    This is great. It will motivate the Jets players and it will make SOJF's cry. Perfect!

    Only in NY. Only in NY would you get that kind of treatment - deserved or undeserved.

    Cant wait for the Jets to smash a team to pieces and make all the talking heads STFU and eat crow -- especially bozos like Smith, Bayless, Banks, Semen-i, Myers, Lupica, and Serby. Hopefully it's Buffalo and their new "amazing" Defense followed by Pitt. I have never seen so much negativity and piling-on ever in sports media. The players must be motivated and angry -- I'm pissed. You watch how fast they all jump on the Jets bandwagon if we make a late season run tho...

    Pretty funny actually. Sports is the epitome of 'if you win a championship you get to gloat, if you don't you take the brunt of jokes'. Especially in a two team city.

    Let Rex use it as self motivation. I believe he doesn't appreciate the NY media as much as he is letting on and can see him shoving it in there faces.

    Seriously though, Is this real? If so, that's harsh and uncalled for IMO.

    If I were Woody, Rex, Sanchez or Tebow, I would be on the phone with an attorney. There are statutes relating to "commercial disparagement" and of course there are general defamation laws. The fact that they are "celebrities" or "in the public eye" makes it harder to prove but I believe "actual malice" is the standard.

    That's the worst thing I've personally ever seen in that environment.

    For drafting un-proven yet incredibly talented WR in the second round?

    For being 8 and 8 last year?
    I'm sorry. Are you not familiar with the 3 ring circus that has been on display in Florham Park the past 12 months?

    That's why when people say "Wouldn't it be great to be rich and famous?" I say they can keep the famous. I'll take rich and anonymous, please.

    The media was dying to kill the Jets from the second Rex showed up at Florham Park in 2009 and started running his mouth.

    They couldnt' in 2009 and 2010 (because we were winning.)

    Now they can, and they're taking it to us. It's created open season among media and fans everywhere.

    There are two ways to make it stop.

    1) Win games

    or

    2) Fire Rex

    I'll take the first way.

    Bingo. But Rex has handled it to this point with accepted criticism.

    Are you serious? In this country you are still allowed (thank God) to publish words and images with malice against public figures. You just can't publish lies. I do not think that the NYP is claiming that Rex, Mark and Tim are ACTUAL clowns, do you? Whether this is good journalism is another matter.

    If they contacted lawyers over that image, then they ARE clowns. Silly comment, Jordy.

    Hysterical and true. Good job by the post. Hopefully, Rex puts this up in the locker room somewhere and the players use it as motivation.
