    Cortland NY is is the best place for training camp IMO.
    Untrue..I've had conversations with people in the Jets ticket office on numerous occasions and around HALF of all season ticket holders live on LI.

    BTW: The poll isn't for moving the entire training camp back to LI (although it would be great if they were at Stony Brook), it was to bring back the one camp night they did here since they moved, back to LI, which they dumped entirely this summer.

    Sean, i think it would be great to have it at Stony Brook...lol

    I just think it is good to have it far away in Cortland where the only temptatations are Cortland Apples. I'm not against one camp night on LI.
    Sorry.

    Our elitist owner could care less about the fanbase unless it affects his profit margin.

    God awful state of affairs with this entire organization

    Our most famous player, who lead us to our only SB championship has no respect for him.

    Says a lot

    You are not alone. Would always look forward to taking a day off and going to a practice. Was hoping to continue the tradition with my son.

    Sure,

    Inconvenience the team when they're trying to prepare for the season so you can have a token practice in Long Island cause you're wittle, wittle feelings are hurt.

    This is so stupid and shortsighted.

    I can see being disappointed by not getting to go watch a practice, but some of this outrage over it is just silly. Just seems like a non-issue, tbh. But, at the same time, maybe I just don't "get it". So, for that reason (and because it takes a whole 2 seconds to do this one small request), I signed.

    I find that hard to believe if that were true we wouldn't have problems with noise on D, they know football they have attitude, they can bring the heat, no?

    Signed.

    P.S as a heads up you got exposure for the petition from Connor Orr and The Star Ledger from this.

    Time to move on. They're no longer based on Long Island. Get over it.

    Same here. With prices becoming unreachable for most families Hofstra became a must for my family to be connected to this team somewhat. It is impossible for me to believe what has happened in regards to the billionaires who control what is sacred to most fans.

    It is criminal what Woody Johnson has done to this franchise in regards to how it treats its fans.

    I will not contribute one dime in support of this team again

    If you like your weekends and watching the JETS on Sundays you should thank a union.
