    The hated Giants or the hated Patriots?

    While I'm sure it's divided, I think a NY/NJ-based Jets fan's life would be a whole lot easier with the Lombardi in Foxboro.

    If I were one of them (and I'd rather be in a POW camp for 10 years), the only thing I'd be rooting for would be my squares/numbers in the pool.

    Sounds like most of them are divided and rooting against one or the other which is equivalent to rooting for the asteroid...

    I'm in the UK and the majority of the jets fans I know want the Giants to win.

    43 years. They haven't even BEEN to a Super Bowl in 43 years. That's hilarious

    My friends in NYC (and I use the term friends loosely right now:D) are rooting for the Giants-some are Giants fans anyway but most are Jets fans, one's a displaced Dallas fan lol. Jets fans hate the Pats. If it were Jets/Giants I know who I'd be rooting against- it's name begins with a J:p

    I'd say they're rooting for the Mayan prophecy to come true. Only a little earlier in 2012.

    I'm rooting for no Jets threads on the home page of this board tomorrow, Super Bowl Sunday.

    I'd say 90% for Giants and 10% (former Boston residents) for Patriots.

    I say this is about right. I know a lot of Jet fans and the hate for the Patriots is much more then the hate for the Giants. It's a lose/lose for them either way. Something they are used to though :)

    The Giants, because when the Giants weren't in the playoffs the last 2 years but the Jets were, Jets fans inflated by a boatload. I'm assumed it's the same people flip flopping between the Jets and Giants based on success.

    Prime example of what dirtbags Jets fans are. Nuff said:

    "Im rooting for someone to sack Princess Brady early in the game by the face mask in violent fashion (Hopefully he never walks again) Followed by a sideline play where Belichick takes a helmet to the head hit, and must retire due to brain damage."

    That's why they were so happy to have recently participated in 2 AFC championship games.

    I remember it a big deal for the Pats to make the playoffs. I do not take this ride for granted.

    I have no doubt they are rooting for the asteroid to take out Lucas Oil Stadium during the game.



    The silver lining for Jet fans is that no matter who wins they can go to the board of the loser and trash them endlessly. (Ignoring the fact that they suck, but that's no surprise)

    They share a stadium, right?

    Wouldn't the Jets have to see the Giants banners constantly or do they take them down when their team isn't playing?

    Worse than that ... they wanted to be the first to win it in the new stadium ... they fear if the Giants win it will be an epic win in history of the new stadium.

    Interestingly enough there have been at least two similar quandaries recently.

    Last week Steeler fans had to watch the Ravens play the Pats, knowing the winner would advance to the Super Bowl. Baltimore and Pittsburgh fans can't stand each other as division rivals; Pittsburgh fans can't stand the idea of the Patriots winning another championship as it brings the Pats that much closer to their no longer being able to brag about the most Super Bowl championships of any franchise.

    A year ago we had to endure an AFCCG between the Steelers and Jets.

    I was snoopin' through GangGreen the other day and to be honest I saw a ton of them saying they hope we destroy the Gmen. A lot of them were saying they are sick and tired of all the Giants talking and that if the Giants win they're gonna have to hear it everyday....

    Yup. This is me. Basically this and all the Giants fans shoving it in my face.

    Haven't been around in awhile due to my teams incompetence, but good luck tomorrow guys. Hope Gronk pulls a Willis Reed and destroys the Giants D.

    New yorkers are new yorkers. That IS the bottom line. When one of them faces Boston in a playoff game, the other cheers for the "other home team". They're like siblings that beat the snot out of each other, but start a fight with one of them and the other comes to their defense.

    Of course, there are exceptions, but not many.
