Jesus, do Jets fans not want to see their team beat New England ever again? Yeah, we really needed a competitive edge in 2005, didn't we?
What a joke, good luck with that. Also, have fun paying your lawyers later, douchebags
If there was any doubt there isn't any now. The Jets fans are the bottom feeders of the NFL.
I was sure that this was something from The Onion when I clicked the link.
Guy's a joke. Oh, and remember, folks, Mangini had nothing to do with this as well.
Thanks Goodell, you Doofus. This is why the NFL should have made a lawyer commissioner. His careless actions have spawned a generation of conspiracy theorists. All he had to do was hand out a small fine and send out a memo, and move on. What a moron.
Wow, there are so many reasons to throw this one out. For one thing, he should be suing the Jets since his tickets are with them. He has no contract - implied or otherwise - with the Patriots, so how could their behavior be judged to be outside of acceptable? If a player's flagged for an offsides, does that give fans standing to sue because the action was against the rules of the game?
This guy's about to find out that the rules of football and the provisions of contract & tort law are very different, hopefully he gets slapped with sanctions - like attorneys fees, for this bullcrap. This reminds me of the guy suing god in Nebraska.
This is really getting out of hand. :singing:
Who's the doofus?? This has nothing to do with Goodell, an attorney would not have done anything differently. The commissioner's not going to avoid taking action against a team because it could cause some nutjob to file a completely frivilous lawsuit. You can be sure his decision was vetted by the NFL's legal counsel, and you can also be sure that no lawyer advised him against this because of third-party RICO liability.
I'm going to counter-sue the Jets for the same, but in this case, for failure to field a legitimate football team and thus cheating me and all ticket paying fans out of a meaningful football contest.
Beyond the pure absurdity of this, how the hell could this moron sue the Patriots for "deceiving customers" when he is a customer of the Jets and the Jets only?
Jets fans should sue the Jets for sucking so badly.
Oh GOD!!! It's a game people! This goes off the scale for sure.
AAAH, videotaping was legal until last year. So this moron can't sue for every game lost back to 2000. If he can sue at all which I doubt.
Moga is probably behind it.
Video taping's always been illegal, a reminder went out last year, but it was already illegal. Thing is, and notwithstanding that he'd loose even if he proved everything, he'd have to prove that the Pats cheated in every single game, and any possible evidence has been destroyed by the NFL.
I was talking to a Bronco fan who is grilling the Pats and Belichick over this and I told him that the Pats would come out smelling like roses - you know why? Because a lynch mob ALWAYS goes too far and the Pats are going to look like victims after all of this BS.
Look at what people are saying and doing - we're talking PROFESSIONAL football players reaching for excuses on why they lost big games. All this is doing is creating the most talented and ANGRIEST team in recent history - good job, NFL
He should sue the Jets for impersonating an NFL team...badly.
By the logic the suit states, the Jets can sue any teams that break any rule at all. Holding? 128 million plz. And what kind of garbage is that about "the intergrity of the game"? A bunch of fans grouped together are supposed to tell us what that is? There's absolutely no way this goes anywhere, the only shame is that somehow people have found a way to drag cameragate out into the spotlight AGAIN.
Who said that?
As a New Jersey resident, I feel ashamed. There are more Jets fans that are imbeciles than are found in the general population, by at least a 3:1 margin.
It's what I've been reading on this site. Right now on another thread it's being discussed as to when a memo banning it went out, and another this year reiterating the original memo of 06.
They shouldbe suing the NFL if anything, who then would turnaround and hit on the Pats if in fact they won the suit.
But they won't. For one thing, there wasn't any crime committed.
Ah, OK, I didn't know if you were confusing it with last year's banning from local TV cameras on sidelines, which there was also a thread about (I think I deleted it).
No, there was no memo banning it last year, the commissioner doesn't have the authority to impose new rules. It's been illegal for decades, there was a reminder last year about it, and after the Patriots were caught another one went out.
Sorry, but you are wrong. It has not been illegal for decades. Just like signal stealing is not illegal. NONE of it is ILLEGAL. Its against the rules and there is a difference. OH, and btw, there were no RULES against it for decades either.
Reminder, memo what ever pujo.I been reading MEMO/06.(which was never enforced,until 9/9/07) I can only go on the info thats available in general here and from radio, TV, and print I'm not going to wast my time looking up some obscure rule,when the general consensus is that it wasn't illegal until last year. And by the way while I'm thinking about it it wasn't Godell that was behind this it was the competition comm.
Ok, illegal in this context obviously means against the RULES. Obviously we didn't expect the FBI to take the cameraman away so I don't mean it's against the LAW.
Second, videotaping was illegal as far back as 2 decades ago, and coaches like Jimmy Johnson admitted they knew they were breaking the rules when the videotaped.
On signal stealing, you're correct, there's no rule against it to this day, but the issue here is videotaping.
You're not even making sense, you sound like the average Wal-Mart shopper right now.
General consensus doesn't matter, the only thing that matters is that it's been illegal for at least 20 years. It wouldn't even make sense since the commissioner can't create a new rule, by memo or otherwise. Competition comittee? Are you just taking swipes at everyone without any regard for how little sense it's making? Why don't we blame the Supreme Court next? The competition committee doesn't make rules either, they recommend them to the entire ownership.
I'll say this loud and clear: the only way to pass a new rule in the NFL is if 24 owners vote it in.
There was a time when I had respect for the Jets and their fans.....what a f$cking doo-baggie, Does he actually think the Pats need an advantage to beat this piss poor team.
He should sue the Jets fans. The only time they make any noise is when one of their star players gets injured.
F the Jets!
