    And during the game, the Jets PA staff does such a job of bombarding our ears during every second of every moment of downtime that Ed doesn't have time to squeeze in his chanting anymore. Several times he'd get up, start the motions, and then sit right back down because some PC Richards whistle or some Save $1 on Mrs. Fields cookies drowned him out.

    Oh, and we have hot female cheerleaders now. They do routines where Ed used to do schtick. I guess the paying customers prefer that.

    I think we also enjoy those highlight player trackers of our 3 yard run of the game. Or we could fill Ed's spot with fireworks when were down by 30. Or more redzone channel highlights so we know what a TD pass looks like.

    There are two home games left in the season.

    Ed could have just appeared at those two games, did a single chant at each game, and faded out.

    In April, he could have released a statement that said that he was getting older, no longer appearing in character, thanked the fans, thanked the Jets, and retired.

    Instead, he chose a very visible national game to throw a tantrum.

    He's not quitting on the team as a paying season ticket holder, but as our 'superfan' he isn't doing himself or his brand any good by behaving in this manner.

    This is very disappointing news. Thanks, Fireman Ed for all the fun over the years. Your energy and leadership will be missed. I'm sorry for all the jerks out there. Bad energy. I hope it gets better.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who can't stand it.

    And more than just the voice, it's the constant bombardment. I can't hear myself think. I can't tell my son to tie his shoes without screaming in his ear because he can't hear me from 10 inches away.

    My opinion, he is using the Jets and it's fans to excuse himself from the situation. He could have just retired, didn't need to let the team down like this.

    The difference is, if you stop "banging on the rails" and stay home, no one will care.

    And that bothers you.

    If the Jets were paying off Ed, why would they drown him out with noise, etc.?

    And how is he letting down the team if he sucked so much?

    Complete truth but somehow that's missed.

    Also still curious...

    Everyone says he wasn't on payroll, he paid for his seats....I think his article proves he didn't own the seats he was sitting in...so who did?

    They don't deserve any diehard fan who cheers for them right now. Ed is just one of MANY. That's it.

    And he can also spare me on why he chose to wear a Bumchez jersey. We all know why. It wasn't his decision.

    Forget me personally as I'm not Ed's problem. Ed's problem is:

    1. A fan perception that it's all about him, not the team.

    2. A MetLife PA staff that makes too much noise during the very timeouts that Ed used to monopolize.

    Look no further than that.

    LOL.

    Yes, actually, PSL's suck because while the new stadium does a lot of things right it does a few things wrong. The PA strategy being #1 on the list. Then comes parking lot security. Then comes poor mass transit. Everything else is good.

    It took Ed 4 years to buy a Sanchez jersey?

    Maybe time for the Tannenhill buy.

    You couldn't be more wrong about so much of what you spew on this forum.
    He is stuck in his miserable drivel but he is never rude or violent towards other Jets fans.

    I disagree wholeheartedly with his platform, but respect him and like him as a poster.

    There's a lesson there for you. Try to find it along with the 12 wins you promised us all summer.

    Then shouldn't he be wearing a Tebow jersey? That's Woody's toy

    Frankly since we're speculating....I think the opposite. Based on the direction of this team I believe Woody would be on his knees begging Ed to come back and get something positive going in his stadium because all I see is a hellhole of negativity and boos in future homegames.
    You own Jets Insider.

    Let's say there was a single poster that transcended the site. Was so off-the-charts popular that he was on TV, quoted in newspaper articles, had his own blog, a YouTube channel, an iPhone app, the works. You and he had an unspoken pact. He could flourish here on your site but that was in exchange for good behavior towards the Jets Insider brand. Win-win for both of you.

    Then, one day, he launches a very public anti-Jets Insider crusade on TV, newspaper articles, blogs, the works.

    That wouldn't concern you?
