    It took him 35 years to realize he didn't have to put the flames out.....there was never going to be a fire to start with,the organization has had 'wet matches' since 1969.

    No kidding. Some folks just keep hanging on, hoping to rekindle the old flame.

    There were some affairs between me and the Patriots, but I always wore the laundry and always put them first in my heart. I always will.

    But the JETS....... Ya know, when you've lost Broadway Joe AND Fireman Ed, it's time for some serious soul searching.

    I said this in the Jets' suck thread:

    Although I think Fireman Ed is a joke, it is disgusting that other Jets fans would harass him because he wears a Tebow jersey. Owning a ticket doesn't give you the right to be an arse at the stadium.

    I'm afraid something bad is going to happen, because no one deserves as much enjoyment as Rex and the Jets are giving me.
    They were already a laughingstock, and now their most visible fan quits on them.

    I hope we leave this in its own thread for a while before merging it to get lost in the Jets suck monolith, because this is just to good to not be its own thread at least for a while.

    I agree with you but it's not a Tebow jersey he wears but a Sanchez jersey.

    Although there is no love lost here for Fireman Ed, It looks more like he gave up on Jets fans than gave up on the Jets themselves. He is probably doubly disappointed in that he likely wore the Sanchez jersey because supporting Tebow for QB is the equivalent of giving up entirely. I don't care what he did in Denver for that cup of coffee. Calling Fireman Ed to task to the extent that he felt compelled to throw in the towel speaks volumes about the mess that the Jets are in and is more clear indication that there nitwit GM has got to go first. That guy has been a joke forever. Maybe the owner wanted Tebow, maybe not but it is still idiot Tannenbaum that should have gone to the mattresses to prevent Tebow from coming to NY for exactly the reason that is being played out right before our eyes. Lets not forget, it was idiot Tannenbaum that brought Sanchez to NY.

    I agree though...God is probably going to get us for gloating to much over the woeful Jets and the unbelievable mess they find themselves in now. So in the spirit of earning back some points for us Pats fans up there in the heavens "I sorely miss having a competitive Jets team as it makes the Pats football season so much more interesting when the Jets are competing with us. So here is hoping that the Jets can find there way back to at least finishing one or two places behind us...every year till the end of time!"

    The organization he roots for created the division internally and it's now spread out to the fan base. Ed shuns the fans an roots for the culprits, how nice. He should'v called out the whole organization and asked them why they brought a circus to town.

    You can wear the laundry and flip the idiot owner the bird at the same time and will be no less of a fan for it IMO.

    The reason an arch demon incarnate like Woody Johnson bought the Jets is precisely because he knew the customer base....right down to their rotten cheese stink green socks. Throw the green Jersey mooks a few tough guy sound bytes, hire a blabbermouth snake oil salesman to front it and give his subordinate Mephistopheles orders to keep payroll down and attendance up by making big media splash signings of a select few, while bargain basementing the bottom half of the roster, and *voila*....huge profits and the back page of the Post every time a Jet farts...give him credit...he hoodewinked all of them for four years with this dog and pony show.

    Today, however, the circus has left town...and all that remains are a few drunken clowns that missed the bus on the way out.

    I wonder what team he will move on to next and be a die hard fan for?

    All things considered the jests have hardly been a bad franchise compared to some others in recent times.

    His move seems to be less about the Patriots, but more about the fans who are divided on Tebow/Sanchez... what hath woody wrought?? more publicity which may be the underlying intent.

    If you have a crappy team, crappy GM and crappy coach fan the flames of fandom by creating controversy..

    It's right out of Skyfall: put some coconut in a barrel to lure the rats in, then once all the rats are in the trap, leave them there. The rats will get hungry and will start eating each other.

    Woody, Tanny and Rex spread the coconut (with some help from the media) and created their own rat trap.

    It also might just be as simple as WJ looking for a biblical-sized tax write-off. :cool:

    After all, I've been pretty well convinced for 20 years now that that's what the Bills are designed around.

    This is very sad news, indeed. Fireman Ed was the face of the franchise. I suppose the Jets will have to go out and actually find a football player to take his place. Godspeed, Fireman Ed.

    Well this sucks. Never like the guy…and now I will miss hating on him.
    Wasn't there an article on him a few years back that he was on disability or something?

    Apparently, he was on disability.

    Much like Manning and that look from the sideline after Colts losses, Fireman Ed was fun to watch after Patriot wins. It is sad if a lousy Jets crowd drove him away (I am also a little hesitant to declare this final in the event it is a Peter Pan "clap if you believe in fairies" ploy for Jets fans).

    I think everything he said in that article is reasonable and based on what I read on JI, which is probably a good cross-section of Jets fandom, I can imagine that he is subject to a lot of abuse.

    This is much more respectable than what I thought had happened - that he had a temper tantrum over the loss and decided to leave.

    Feel bad for the guy.

    Ed is a Benedict Arnold who was a Miami Dolphins fan during their heyday so he'll just move on to become a SF fan where male cheerleaders are eyed with more interest.

    I don't believe his convenient after the fact "excuse" for bailing that those really really mean Jets fans said nasty things to him. Stormed out in a hissey fit, did he?
