    Can we change the motto to "All Gas, No Steering Wheel"?

    I can imagine some random guy on the other side of the world cursing at his TV in another language about how bad the Jets suck.

    I agree with the boycott call.

    Only I prepaid my tickets…

    I heard and announcer say “well Jet fans have to realize that this is a young team”.

    BULLSHIT! Somebody made the decision to assemble this crap sandwich of a team.

    Whoever is responsible should be hunted down and made to eat that sandwich…then show them the fucking door.

    I still only go to games to be with my my tailgate buddies, enjoy their camaraderie, the food, the drinks.

    Boycott next years tickets…I’m in.

    Really want new gear and have done for nearly a decade.

    Told the other half I'd be getting some once the Jets become a play off team again and not before.

    Were nothing to billionaires, might as well not give them more than our inherited fandom whilst they suck.

    There's a market for everything. Some guys pay Japanese high school girls to step on their scrotum with stiletto heels.

    Haha that would be interesting. The organization sees all the fans outside tailgating and no one comes inside come game time. That would be pretty creative way to protest.

    Although you gotta go by NJ transit or Uber if you want to avoid giving them money for parking.

    Yeah the young team thing is such a bullshit excuse when you lose by 41.

    Also if you’re buying directly from the team then I would call them up and just tell them not to bother for next year. I think that would send them the message.

    I think the pain from watching this team is probably on par with that.

    I haven't bought any Jets gear for at least 4 years.

    I'm not going to watch them again this year either.

    Glad I decided to sleep this afternoon instead of watching the game. I haven't bought anything Jets related since 2010.

    I agree. I'm glad that I held off on buying Sunday Ticket. If things don't change dramatically between now and the end of the season, I'm done permanently with this joke of a franchise.

    An attendance boycott at this point wouldn't do a thing except tell the players and coaches that they suck.

    But it would be pretty fucking awesome for the next prime time game... can just imagine the telecast...

    Unfortunately I think more than half the Jets' revenue comes from the TV money. Then there's licensing, which again is business to business. Then ticket sales and merch. So a ticket and merch boycott probably isn't going to be a decisive blow to the Johnsons' fat Jets revenue stream.

    However, even a minor decrease in revenue couldn't hurt. Even more, a nearly empty stadium and a few "Sell the team Woody!" signs could be a lovely dick punch to the Johnsons' ego.
