    Hi to all .. Just signed up earlier today. I was online trying to find a radio link for the Championship matches last night and just started a nostalgia trip on past superbowls, no prizes for guessing which early Superbowl is in my all time top 5 then I just kinda ended up on here..

    Been a football fan since Channel 4 in the UK started broadcasting it's programme around '82.

    Although predominantly a fan of the game I always carried a soft spot for the Jets as your whole history shows a heart and soul that just draws you in.. unlike some of the franchises that move around and seem to dislocate their whole identity.

    Aiming to hang around and expand my technical knowledge of the game by following what's going on, courtesy of you guys I hope..

    Cheers, I appreciate the welcome... I suspect that although I've watched the game from afar for 25 or so years.. what I know compared with you guys could fit on the back of a postage stamp but I'll chip in here and there from time to time I'm sure..

    Slainte..

    I found it on Google right after Leon Washington was drafted. I wanted to let the Jets Nation know what kind of a player we had just drafted.

    went searching for jet message boards to see what was going on with the team and came across this. read for a while before posting though. enjoying the board though i guess ill have to be careful to always post in the correct place...seems to be a sensitive issue around here...

    I found it by searching for message boards too. I am as frustrated a Jet fan as you will ever find. I bet on (and obviously won) Joe Willie in 1969. I have had nothing but heartache since. I'm no happier now either. A lot of you buy into this Mangini/Tannebaum thing. I don't. Not yet anyway. It's nice to care about character but you don't make it your primary onjective. If you do it's a sign of weakness. Every team has problem players to deal with. The sign of a good coach is being able to handle it. Can you imagine if Joe Torre only wanted high character athletes? It's the same with not investing in quality free agents. We started this off season 20 million under the cap. With the cuts and future retirement of Curtis Martin it will be closer to 30. What have we done? Nothing. Are we in a money saving mode now? I know Johnson is nothing like Leon Hess was but is he really that cheap? If we keep this up we will be a second rate place team forever.

    Heh, suddenly felt the urge to advise us of that after realising you needed 9 more Jets posts to put pics in bullshit? I know your game, chickadee!
