My issue, I guess, is the guy takes such pleasure in crapping on everything Jets related. Lord knows, many of us have issues when things go awry, we just don't seem to enjoy it as much as this young man does.
Just because you are permitted to post doesn't mean you have to pass any criteria. Enjoy the show, man. And take it all with a grain of salt. BMW or homeless, it is all here.

First of all, having a few too many drinks and needing a ride instead of getting behind the wheel is not criminal behavior. It's having a few too many, everyone has done it.
You make a call to a car service, they pick you up...no questions asked.
Savage was right.
I am this way because the Jets put me here. By keeping Rex Ryan they wrote off our rebuilding for another year. I know there is hope around the corner, I know we will see brighter days, I know we will get that elusive Championship, but to have to sit through another lousy season is unbearably painful. Some of us react differently to pain. Some deny it. Some accept it. Some fight it.
Secondly, in those situations how is it different than calling your own cab?
How does the team provided service get paid?
Now keep thinking it through ...

It's kind of like companies paying for a corporate apartment even though it might only be used a couple of times per month. Say the Jets contracted this out and it costs $5k per month or $60k per year. That's peanuts to an NFL team and well worth the cost to protect the players.

It must be infuriating that the one thing in you life that money cant buy exists.
I understand the whole argument about the Jets wanting to maybe get Goodson's bonus money back by letting the court situation play out but I disagree with the approach. Just pull the trigger and cut this clown already. Jets will still save cap room anyway and they can move on and sign another back who can catch out of the backfield which is a big need for us.
This is similar to the Tebow situation. Why wait? Just cut the loser already and move on.
As far as I'm concerned, Goodson should no longer be in Jets fans' minds anymore. He's going to jail and even if he wasn't, I doubt Idzik(or even Woody) would want to have him as yet another "distraction" on the team.
The Jets are just gonna wait to see what happens here, that's the prudent thing to do.
If most of these charges wind up getting dropped then you just cut a player for going out drinking on a Friday night... because so far that's the only thing we know for certain that he did.
He was a passenger in the car, so he wasn't driving drunk. He had a small amount of pot on him, not a serious offense. They found a gun in the car that might not even be his. That's all anyone knows right now... Are the Jets supposed to cut the guy before they know if he's done anything seriously wrong yet? What if they cut him and all of this turns out to be dropped or reduced to a small fine? The Jets need to chill here and not let the media hype drive their football decisions.
An offense is still an offense. And an unwanted distraction.He had a small amount of pot on him, not a serious offense.
Don't worry, Billy. I, Mr. Idzik, will do my due diligence on the matter....They found a gun in the car that might not even be his. That's all anyone knows right now...

Seriously, man. You don't have to try to convince me. I know the Jets will wait but man....Goodson may have just fubar'ed in BEING ASSOCIATED with "that person" who possibly owned that gun.
But since we're playing with "What-if's" here....
What if Goodson knew his "Friend" was packing heat?
