    Speak for yourself. I care.

    My formative youth was spent rooting on this:



    And while we didn't win a title, I have plenty of history, and love, for that logo and Uniform.

    And yes, I'd be HAPPY to give Woody some of my money (cause $15 is a big deal, right?) for a nice new Throwback 80's Jets Hat.

    If we're going to have throwbacks (and we will), it's only right it be our 70's/80's Uniforms and logo.

    You, and your principled stand against your own team's owner, are free to not buy anything if that boats your float.

    Sorry to here you weren't there when our Jets won the SB.
    I really hated those uni's. Glad Parcells got rid of them. Still got a sweatshirt with that logo. Don't know why.

    I wonder if there is any truth to that statement. Wouldn't be surprised, this being the most talented team he has ever coached and all.

    I would love to see us wear those uni's however, I think it would have been awfully embarrassing to wear those uniforms and play like we were still the Kotite Jets. Cause that's how we looked, many a Sunday afternoon...

    You can't control when you're born. You can only control rooting for the Jets from the day you're born.

    We forgot to wear them but we didn't forget to play like them.

    If what you wanted was a 90s impersonation, boy, you got it.

    In case you didn't notice, throwbacks were scarce this season due to the transition from Reebok to Nike. In 2013 expect to see a lot more throwbacks and alternates produced and worn. Perhaps we'll finally get our wish of seeing the 80's or 90's dreads (black trim optional) instead of the Titans of New York.

    Can't agree more. With the way they played they looked like the Pete Carrol team. Instead of fake spike we were brought butt fumble.

    I can't believe I keep coming back for this abuse.
