    I think that we are a compassionate group. We have had our ups and downs as Patriots fans. However, the NY Jets have had very little ups and an abundance of way downs.

    Since the merger they have not been to a Super Bowl. They have only been to one AFCCG and lost (1998). They have won only 2 AFC East titles and one of those, 2002, was decided in the 3rd tie breaker with us.

    On the other hand, we have have won 9 AFC East titles, been to 6 AFCCG's (winning 5), and 5 super Bowls, winning 3.

    Those are some of the reasons we might feel sorry for Jets fans. But, there are more.

    So, should we feel sorry for them?

    Pity, yes. Compassion, no.

    I don't feel sorry for them. When they have their day in the sun (hopefully not for a long time), we're going to have to hear their fans going nuts about it for the whole offseason.

    Another reason: they have to play their home game in a place called Giants Stadium.

    I have a tendency to feel bad for passionate fans of bad teams: Lions, Cardinals, Bengals, Browns... However let's be honest here, New England was right among them until the Kraft/Parcells Era started up so every dog has their day. And if Jets fans weren't so damn boistrous I might wish them well more then I do. Kind of like Eagles fans, I respect the team, hate the fans...and therefore usually root against them.

    I feel no compassion for the Jets or their fans. For me, happiness is to see them crushed by the Patriots, to see them driven before us, and to hear the lamentations of their women.

    Don't forget we snatched Vince Lombardi II from them. Except that didn't quite realize it at the time...

    No we don't need to feel sorry for them. According to Michael Holley they will win on Sunday so they should feel pretty good about themselves for awhile.

    I have found over the years that jet fans, ESPECIALLY the passionate ones, are often totally deluded and relatively often complete A-holes. So no, as a general rule, I do not feel compassion b/c most of them don't deserve it AT ALL. I don't mind phin fans NEARLY as much as jet fans.

    Jets and Dolphins fans feel very good about themselves March through August. It's starting in September that they withdraw into a shell. Let 'em talk. They still have a couple days to brag about what they will do.

    FWIW, you missed the one other time they were in the AFCCG, it was in 1983 vs the Doofins on a rain soaked field in the Orange Bowl and the Jets lost.

    I've never seen a more pathetic group of sad sacks as Jets fans. They join the Browns, Texans and Jags as the only other AFC team not to appear in a Super Bowl since the merger as you pointed out, and the comical part is those three have an excuse, all being expansion teams, what is the Jets excuse?

    The Jets stole Parcells away and it got them to the AFCCG, where they lost; we stole Belichick away and it got us not one, not two but THREE SB wins, just another example of the Jets just being the Jets.

    Their fans for the most part are annoying, but I find the annoying ones to be the younger ones as they don't have a clue yet that their team is doomed to failure. The older fans are less annoying because they know better, they know the Jets are pathetic.

    You are right. They did play the Fins in 83. so that makes them 0-2.

    No, it'll be more fun to beat you guys if you're not feeling sorry for us....

    You Redsox fans probably know what I mean.

    This was posted on usenet, when we were on our way to our second SB.

    I imagine this poor SOB was sucked in by the Mangini mirage, reality will begin to settle in this Sunday. This Jetsfan will show up and do the stupid cheer with Fireman Ed. I would love to hear him yelling at the radio on the way home from the beating the Jets will take this Sunday. :singing:

    The JETS were a mess a couple of years ago, and pity was in order, but Mangini and Bradway have them on the right track and they will be the primary rival for the Patriots the next few years at least. The 2 OL picks in the first of last years draft were critical moves imo, as the only way they were going to be able to play with the Patriots was if they radically improved their OL, and Mangold and Ferguson achieved that for them.

    Rivalries are always better when you hate the other team, and hate and pity are opposing sentiments. I'm glad they are in the game, otherwise it would make for a boring season. The opener is actually a big game for both teams and thats a great way to start a season as a fan.

    Its Mangini and Tannenbaum, Bradway is nothing more then a scouting assistant now.

    Other then that I agree...Good post!!

    When I got to "Crushed" the rest of the quote came to mind. GOOD post. :rocker:

    I would feel empathy for them except that all the jets have to do is win a couple of games in a row and there winning the division,and going to the SB. according to the fans.

    Wow, a sane Pats fan...amazing. In all seriousness, I've always been very respectful when coming here. It is a Pats board afterall. The reality is that the Pats have been the better team for the past 5 or so years. Unfortunately (from my point of view), that seems to be the case again this year. But, at some point the Jets will be better than the Pats. Obviously, I look forward to that day.

    But, the comments here about Jets fans is hilarious to me. Honestly, I have not seen a more obnoxious, spoiled group of fans than Pats fans over the past few years. It's funny how short memories become with success. In any case, since this is your board, you'll obviously frolick the way you like. I'll try to always be respectful, but will definitely celebrate Jets success. It would be great to win this weekend, although I don't see it happening.

    Wow, can you imagine what Klecko73 did after the Patriots won their third SB in four years, priceless stuff.

    I love how Jets fans call Patriots fans "spoiled" and "bandwagon fans." Nothing like painting with a broad brush. I have been a fan since 1968 and followed this team through the bad times and the good times. Sure there are bandwagon fans (what winning team doesn't have them), but all the fans I know are far from that. Reminds me of loser Red Sox fans who used to call the Yankee fans spoiled and bandwagon fans and how "lucky' they were and how they bought WS titles. Notice the key word there is USED to call them that.

    I also love how Jet fans dismiss what we did in the 1970's and 1980's and 1990's like it never happened and the Patriots have only been a good team since 2001; they forget about the 1976 team and how they got screwed vs the Raiders (perhaps the greatest Patriots team of all time), the 1985 team or the 1996 team, very good teams that went to the Super Bowl.

    I also love how Jets fans whine about BB coming here, we stole their coach and raided their staff and players, yet when the Jets stole Parcells, our coaches and many of our players, I guess that was ok...................

    Yup, that was real respectful.

    In case anyone has missed it, I started this thread as satire. I don't feel sorry for Jets fans just like Fins fans never felt sorry for us.

    And, I hope we continue to humiliate the Jets for many years to come.

    The only thing that makes me feel sorry about Jets fans, is that they exist.
