    Ah yes. Another SAR-fest. Not surprised. Ed's getting more attention.

    Pretty funny coming from the guy who has been shamelessly ridiculing Rex and calling for his job since at least the spring...You are an amazingly hypocritical blowhard ..But what else is new?

    Here's the ugly truth......Fireman Ed is about as close to management as most fans will ever come in contact with. And unfortunately, Ed has become a sounding board for fans and their frustrations. There's a reason owners retreat to secure quarters on game day, tucked away from the liquored up masses. People shelling out hundreds if not thousands, taking loans out to own PSLs....and then be entertained by a horrendous product with very little hope in sight. Sorry Ed....but what did you think was going to happen. They don't put cheerleaders in the stands for obvious reasons. Ed willingly became more than a super fan, he became a prop for the team. Just read his "resignation"...."the Fireman Ed character" has been put to bed. He admits it now....his Sunday gig is over and he will no longer be in character. Thanks for the memories. Now enjoy the game as an everyday fan and not as a prop.

    Amazing how you can unplug from this site for a couple of years, checking in sporadically to see what's what - and know before you even get here what is going to be said, and who's going to be saying it.

    The stadium has become a huge, beer-fueled version of the Landing Strip, with snarky dweebs transformed into drunken douchebags.

    Ed and the Jets chant were a great, positive part of the gameday experience and will be missed - I'm certain whatever replaces him won't be nearly as effective.

    the long gone blue collar fans appreciated fireman ed and what he did. the new and improved psl fan feel its all eds fault we are losing. the blame game its always the bottom feeders fault.

    Just use harry belefontes "Day-O". And then we can chant "Day-O" back. That really gets you fired up.

When I stumbled across this place and 16H I felt like I had found something really special. I actually met a lot of really good Jets fans who welcomed all of us into a tailgate party like we were long-time friends. LimoLady, Jetman, General Lee, Murph, Jumba, Sooth, LG&M, etc...

    Somewhere along the line the entire thing here got transformed into proving how much cooler you are than other posters, 16H dissolved, and the stadium gameday experience went from being largely fun to tense, antagonistic, and borderline dangerous.

    I, for one, understand where Fireman Ed is coming from.

    If Fireman Ed were truly the loyal goodie-goodie you portray him to be, he'd have shown up for Arizona and San Diego, did a handful of J-E-T-S cheers, and faded into February. Come June, announce that he's getting older and retiring from public view, just going to attend games quietly.

    That would be the classy, correct thing to do. Would have protected his image, left some value in the Fireman Ed brand. Instead, he pulls this public stunt to draw more attention to himself to the detriment to the very team he supposedly bled green for all these years.

    While I appreciate your point of view on his resignation, perhaps you should consider the fact that how he handled it won't sit well with many people.

    I can't stay mad at you; damn maniac. Very well played.

    This is the change Woody has given us...Not Rex, Not Sanchez, Not Tanny...

    Fireman ****ing Ed.

    This team is a joke.

    (I know Woody has 0 to do with Ed, but this is just a metaphor for this disaster)

    Sunday will be fun watching about 30 or so fans looking to be the next Fireman Ed, trying to lead the Jets chant.

    Personally, the Thanksgiving night game was a joke as many of the regular STH did not attend. I did not really see any of the regulars by me and that included the guys I usually go with. To me it was like a preseason game atmoshpere, people getting cheap tix and going. There were a lot of amateur fans and those are the ones who do not usually behave...

    Woody got what he wanted... more negative press resulting from a game he requested...

    You guys should start a petition to give the position of official team mascot to this guy. And have him sit directly in front of SAR.

    Too bad he is moving on, hopefully someone else will take up the trade mark cheer. He was utterly stupid to wear a Sanchez jersey though and deserves abuse if he kept wearing it.

    Sanchez blows but that's no reason to chastise a dude for wearing his jersey. WTF

    You know when I was carving up our turkey on Thanksgiving, I thought of you as I seperated the drumstick from the body...
