    No, I'm not.

    BS, put the Jets in any other town this doesn't happen. Nonsense.

    worked in sports media for over a decade. watched how things changed. nobody, especially these NY journalists, does any work anymore. speculation. sources may or may not be real. connecting dots. Twitter with no editors or accountability if you are wrong.

    legitimate journalists who respect their job and the people they report to should live by this old saying for reporters: if your mother says she loves you, check it out.

Then you deal with the fact that no GM is hired after two weeks and we don't have an OC. No wonder they are confused!

    Now juxtapose the reporting on the Jets with the reporting on the Giants. The big difference is that the Giants are not that dysfunctional and have won two recent Super Bowls. Those who report of them seldom have the wonderful material that the 3 ring circus provides the Jet beat guys. Until things change in the asylum, I think you are going to get this all over the place reporting.
    Why use the phrase "hate on"?

    Tell me something? Why is it that you seldom get the media circus around the Giants? Why aren't people hiding in the bushes to photograph the players? Do you think that all the bad reporters are covering the Jets? Again, my claim is that the reporting on the Jets reflects the chaos of the organization. That simple.

    I don't stand out as enough of a personality on this board that you would recall what I post about the Jets. Of course, your reply wasn't about me, it was just your reaction to anyone calling you out for being a troll.

    I don't think I've ever seen you post anything positive about the team.

    Right, like when Gary Myers from the daily news went on a crusade to get Tom coughlin fired, TWICE-the second time was AFTER he won a Super Bowl. The stories about the Giants and their issues during that time were unrelenting. And as we all know, the giants are run poorly

    Obviously you haven't. Maybe you should go back into the archives. I was very positive when the team was performing well.

    You just confirmed what I claimed. When there is an auto wreck, a shooting, a bombing, or a circus, the media is on it!

    Could thinking like this be any more full of itself? This organization will succeed or fail regardless of "fans" like any poster here.

    But he instead shot partially obstructed pictures with a long telephoto lens for artistic reasons.

    A bush, a wall, a tree, whatever, he was hiding.
    No, Rex invited Tebow (was it Tebow they were shooting?)

    Yeah, if you question the attitude of fans towards the median, you have to work for them. Again, its not the medias fault that the Jets offer so many opportunities to sell more soap.

    No, the opposite; the Giants are a well run organization and have been to a while now. Gary Myers started a fire twice campaigning for coughlin to be fired and that includes after he won a Super Bowl.

    The point is that the media in this area will inflame anything to make a story. It matters not whether the franchise is run correctly or not. Enter into evidence exhibit B, the New York Yankees. Nobody wins more and yet the cess pool media will create a cartoon narrative for the back pages when they can.

    It appears you're as blind as the fans with the green glasses. You apparently believe that the media NEVER makes up a story!?!?

    Did I say that? I just said the hatred of the media is a bit over board. It shows a lack of understanding of how they work?

    The first time circus was used as a word to describe the jets was this year when they traded for Tim Tebow. why did it become a so called circus, because every media whore in the country came to New york to follow Tim around and all his devotees.Thats when it became a circus,that word was never used until it was used this year to describe what was going on with regards to tebow and the non existent quarterback competition
