As is the chant, a chant that most in the stadium enjoy and players, both Jets and visitors have talked up as cool.

    Sorry, forgot the voice of doom was talking here.

    The voice of doom reflects the subject he is discussing. I had season tix from '96 - '01 when I lived up there and there was nothing like the atmosphere in that place when Ed was up on the screen getting the place jazzed up. It was organic. It started way back at Shea by a fan - not by the organization trying to manufacture something. That's what this owner does. He has no feel for his audience, or anything for that matter. He is a philanthropist - and should be commended for it - but he is not a business man in any sense of the word.

    I understand your point but the whole idea seems cheesy. As I fan I don't need to be told when to cheer. Play some good, exciting football and the stadium will be plenty loud.

    Can't they just put something on the damn screens?! Hell... Put a video of Ed from a few years ago if you must.
    Get loud on 3rd downs.
    Do the JETS chant on kickoffs and when we score... We can do this all the time at the bar no problem with over 100 drunk asses.
    Fugger it. Get a Drunk Joe to do a lil pump up count-off vid for the chant every time. Maybe a series of them, different levels of toasty.

    So in your mind it was great but if no one takes over on their own and someone comes up with a way to revive that excitement Woody should nix it because it has to happen on it's own. Otherwise it's not right and an example of a philanthropist over his head.

    Lol, ok

    But whether it's the two original leaders of the chant, fireman Ed or whoever leads the chant you're being told when to chant. Like any and all stadiums. They're killing the Jets for wanting to revive the noise and excitement from the days when someone was leading the chant. Not getting how this is problematic. As always you feel like chanting, you chant. You don't, you sit.

    It is truly remarkable what people are capable of arguing about here.

    Um, pretty much, yeah. It's like that lame-ass "That's a New York Jets... First Down!" that is so unoriginal and cringe-worthy and is the absolute essence of this owner.

    Off topic, your signature says you are in Boca. Is that still accurate? Do you go out to watch the games? Back in the day, I went to Gatsby's in Boca for the Jet games.

    The contest sounds like something the marketing dept would come up with, not evil Woody sitting behind his big desk twiddling his Mr Burns-like fingers.

    Yeah, let's not be so literal. Woody is the CEO. He sets the tone and is ultimately the one responsible for business decisions.

    They are completely out of touch with Jets fans:

    * Radio Commercials with a guy who sounds like heez frum Brooklin.

    * Non-stop barrage of noise during every TV timeout in the stadium.

    * Gift of a scarf to season ticket holders in August.

    * Jets Rewards program with undefined rewards.

    * Emails to meaningless events that we don't care about (Lego movie night).

    * Limited capacity to events we do care about (town halls).

    * Humiliating "chose your human mascot" contest.

    It's like Woody's front office has this idea of who a typical Jets fan is and it's this caricature of a blue collar guy from Staten Island with a meatball hero under one armpit and a Schlitz beer under another. Yet of the 82,500 seats in the joint, 70,000 are owned by white collar PSL and Club owners who are utterly ashamed of this type of bush league PR you'd find at a Tri-City Valleycats game.

    Hey Petejet - i'm new to the board and a "new generation" Jets fan ( i wasn't around for the Shea days or even the Giant Stadium days - even though i attend many games with my father when i was young). Now that i'm older and have my own season tickets (section 135), i for one think the lack of the J-E-T-S chant last year SUCKED! They need to bring it back and if that means Woody needs to hold a contest, then by all means i'm all for it...

    I will agree the perception of Jet fans leaves a lot to be desired.
    And the whole idea to try to emulate Fireman Ed's chant with 8 STHs is just lame.
    But I think if you took a white collar guy from Short Hills with a Lobster under one armpit and a bottle of Champagne under the other, that would p*ss off even more people.

    Is the scarf made of wool or acrylic? Certainly not cashmere, I'm sure.

    why don't they just use former jet players to do it. wouldn't fans get more riled up if klecko or chrebet were leading the cheer? throw their face up on the big tvs too - that's marketing.
