    When does the curse end?

    Dear Mr. Namath,
    Please let us know when the deal you made expires. I will forego all the details and Bull and the like. If you could just let us as die hard Jet fans know when the pain will end it would help. Thanks for the one day of glory in 69 but that was a long time ago and my life as a fan sucks now.

    The deal Namath made with the Kansas City Hunt's for having the Colts throw the game and everyone make a killing in Vegas was for 50 years, so:

    Do you have a copy of the contract? I would like to examine said contract.

    Maybe the deal was that the Jets won't win another SB as long as he lives...

    Believe me, if that was the case, he'd have a line around the block.

    It was Hess that made the deal and the guy died before it could be matriculated so we are basically ****ed to a life of "almost football". We will be forever "almost good enough" but never good enough to win it all. I froze my ass off in Nov '69 to become addicted to this ****ing team. I remember it like it was yesterday.

    Namath said he's living to 100

    PS - If you dont know the story, Johnny Unitas was always furious over the bloated contract Namath got from Sonny Werblin, plus he felt by possibly not playing in SBIII the Colts would lose anyway, so, he made an agreement with Joe, Earl Morrell, and famous Vegas bookmaker (at the time) Jimmy "The Greek" to set the odds at a crazy 17-20:1. Joe bet with the Jets and the other 4 also secretly bet with the Jets. After SBIII Bubba Smith complained to Lamar Hunt (AFC Commissioner) and Don Shula complained to Pete Roselle. It was all kept secret, but, the Jets were forbidden to win another Super Bowl for a LOOOOOONG time - some think the agreement was for 50 years :-(

    PPS - So the "guarantee" was 100% iron clad ;-)

    The curse will end when Rex and Bean Counter are gone, and Mr. Johnson sells the team to an owner like the Maras or Kraft. I figure we have another 15-20 years left of this.
