Thread: Is it wrong for a Jet fan to cheer for the Giants?

  1. #1

    Is it wrong for a Jet fan to cheer for the Giants?

    They're not in our division, not in our conference .... we share a stadium with them and technically Rex started the war of words. I'm actually cheering for the Giants in this post-season run and I'm getting heat from all my friends that are Jet fans. Meanwhile these guys are going crazy everytime Brees throws a 10 yard gain. I'm hoping a New York team makes a run this year with all the anti-NY folks around I would like to see the Giants make a nice run here. Oh and I'm also cheering for the Bronco's to go as far possible just for entertainment value. Some of you are taking this Tebow thing too personal. His window of success might just be right now .... why not let the kid get as much as he can. He's a good kid and means well. I know the Jets ain't in the post-season but it doesn't mean it can't be entertaining to a Jet fan and I still don't get the automatic "hate the Giants" thing from Jet fans.

    Only when they are playing an AFC EAST opponent not named the Jets. Or playing someone the Jets need to lose.

    I'm rooting for the Giants as well.

    Everybody who's team has been eliminated is pulling for a picking a team to go all the way. And I'm picking the NY team that made it. Gotta keep the title in the state

    It is usually ridiculous when fans throw the "you're not a true fan" card or certain hot button issues.

    Unfortunately for you, this is one of the rare instances when it can be accurately applied.

    We hereby revoke your Jets Fan card.

    Good day, sir.

    I'm friends with too many Giants fans to root for their misery. Also, the better the Giants do in the playoffs, the better the Jets offseason will be. Rex hates being second fiddle in New York and a Giants run is going to piss him off even more than already is.

    Does it really though? It ain't even like he's rooting for the Patriots. Then you would have a point.

    People act like the Jets & Giants are heating rivals. news flash: they aren't!

    I have a lot of friends that are Giants fans as well and I usually CHEER for their misery at all cost. The thing is .... most Giant fans I know cheered pretty heavy for us the past 2 years. I know they aren't as bitter as Jet fans cause they got that superbowl a couple of years ago but still ... I'm all for the Giants going off on a nice run here.

    I will say this I never rooted harder for a non Jets team than the giants to ruin the pats perfect season. But it wouldn't matter who it was as long as they ruined the perfect season. my whole family is giants fans so I don't mind the giants. They rooted hard for the jets for me last 2 years.

    +1 good point

    Its hard for me to control who i root for outside of the AFC east. Usually i just root for a good game as a fan of football. But watching the Giants today i didn't have any "Marsha! Marsha!! Marsha!!!" animosity alot of Jets fans did. Maybe it because I don't live in NY.

    I can't stand the Giants. I don't think jet fans should be rooting for them

    I'm thinking there is going to be a correlation between the Sanchez apologists and the "Jets fans" rooting for the Giants. I could never imagine rooting for the Giants and root against them vigorously whenever they are on. Figures though. If your starting QB is below avg and you vociferously defend that poor play how much of a Jets fan can you be anyway?
