    Re-confirming their well-earned reputations for reaching ever new lows...

    http://www.nytimes.com/2007/11/20/sports/football/20fans.html?hp

    "At halftime of the Jets’ home game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, several hundred men lined one of Giants Stadium’s two pedestrian ramps at Gate D. Three deep in some areas, they whistled and jumped up and down. Then they began an obscenity-laced chant, demanding that the few women in the gathering expose their breasts.

    When one woman appeared to be on the verge of obliging, the hooting and hollering intensified. But then she walked away, and plastic beer bottles and spit went flying. Boos swept through the crowd of unsatisfied men.

    Marco Hoffner, an 18-year-old from Lacey Township, N.J., was expecting to see more. Not from the Jets — they pulled off a big upset over the Steelers. He wanted more from the alternative halftime show that, according to many fans, has been a staple at Jets home games for years.

    “Very disappointed, because we’re used to seeing a lot,” Hoffner said.

    Wasn't there a recent survey that concluded that the "Fan Experience" at a Jets Home game was the worst of all 32 teams? :D

    I think they should stop serving beer in the stadium like they did a few years back. Those losers don't know how to act at a football game. That being said, I wish Kraft would let some rowdy fans into Gillette.

    Jets fans can't call Pats classless

    http://www.nytimes.com/2007/11/20/s...fee47a1e96f783&ei=5088&partner=rssnyt&emc=rss

    Apparently, they have a different idea of a halftime show, verbally harassing women on the spiral ramps at Giants Stadium. I know plenty of fans in every stadium behave poorly, but this looks awful compared to what I've seen at Gillette.

    Edit: now, if you're talking the old Sullivan Stadium, you've got a point, but much of that's been cleaned up.

    Re: Jets fans can't call Pats classless

    Security and the attitude seems to think that this behavior is allowable. The problem is this kind of mentality can too easily lead to one of these women being more than verbally harassed.

    Apparently, when not cheering injuries on their on QB, the Jets neaderthals have been setting up a gauntlet for the ladies remanescient of the Navy's Tailhook debacle.

    I dub this scandal...... "JetHook".

    Renters should behave better!

    As someone who in 1985 watched shirtless drunks get into fights at old Foxboro Stadium over the "Tastes Great/Less filling" chant (seriously, two "tastes great" guys got offended at a "less filling" guy, sought him out and started pounding him) and got doused with cheap wine upon a Pats conversion of a fourth own (spilled when the crowd rose up), not to mention the idiots who ripped down the goal post and took it to the parking lot, neglecting to notice the power wires overhead and almost getting electrocuted, I say "not again." :bricks:

    That was all during one game, BTW: http://72.14.205.104/search?q=cache...o fans&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=1&gl=us&client=safari

    Louder, more enthusiastic, great. Rowdy? No thanks.

    New York fans are arrogant punks. They think they are all bad arses but they really are a bunch of punks. If it wasn't for the Yankees, they wouldn't have anything to hang their hat on. I feel bad for New York women, but then again they always have me to cheer them up when I'm in town. :D

    You know, looking back on that whole LT thing, it's amazing that got turned into the main story that week, instead of the Pats' great playoff win. :enranged:

    edit: and, oh yeah... jets fans still suck.
