@DWAZ73 : One other thing: Idzik now has landed arguably No. 1 QB, RB and WR in free agency this offseason despite deliberate approach. #Jets
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 02:40 PM) Snell
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 02:41 PM) The title race is real
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 02:42 PM) Jordan...what number was he? it was 30sometihng
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 02:43 PM) tanaka had a great game today. gave up 2 hits due to bunts. 10K
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 02:48 PM) Jordan was #34 with the Jets.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:03 PM) Tanaka is looking like a stud
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:04 PM) Jets added Vick, Chris Johnson, and Eric Decker to the offense.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:04 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:04 PM) And this draft is loaded at the offensive skill positions
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:04 PM) Hopefully we can get anohter starting WR and starting TE in the draft
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:05 PM) Our offense could be much better than last year
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:05 PM) can't get much worse than what it's been the last 2 years
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 03:22 PM) Very cool
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:24 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:32 PM) still need another WR
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:33 PM) so i bet powell barely gets any touches this year and goodson gets cut
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 03:34 PM) Goodson is as good as gone.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 03:34 PM) With all his legal issues and coming off injury he is done. Possibly even in the NFL
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:39 PM) Powell is average anyways.
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 03:39 PM) @ProFootballTalk 5m

Per source, Chris Johnson's two-year deal has a base value of $8 million, with another $1 million available in incentives based on yardage.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:40 PM) He does a lot of things well, but isn't talented enough. Johnson has breakaway ability still and Ivory is man beast running the football
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:41 PM) We will get another WR in the draft. Even in round 2 you can get a starting WR
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 04:09 PM) I am still standing by my CB in the first round and WR in the second prediction
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 05:19 PM) The title race is bale
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 05:34 PM) Sidney rice coming in for a visit
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:49 PM) I think the Jets are getting themselves ready to draft best player available
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:49 PM) Last year they stuck to their board
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:27 PM) if they sign him I think that means they look to take a CB round 1
2JBallar01 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:32 PM) “@AdamSchefter: RB Chris Johnson's 2-year deal with Jets has a team option in it for year two. Jets have option to pick up year two at $4M in February 2015.”
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:51 PM) @AlbertBreer 2m
Sidney Rice has agreed to terms with the Seahawks on a one-year deal, per source.
Expand
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:55 PM) There is really only 2 CBs worth taking at 18
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:56 PM) I rather get a offensive playmaker
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:58 PM) LaMont Jordan was 34
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:59 PM) liar
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:05 PM) He wore #34 when he played for the JETS
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:05 PM) I should know I met him at an event in his last year with the JETS before he went to Oakland
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:05 PM) GFYS 0099 you shit talker
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:06 PM) http://www.nydailyne...entry-1.1758342
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:06 PM) there's no reason we can't have someone off this site on that list too
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 07:08 PM) Rice resigned with Seattle
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:08 PM) did you scare him into going to Oakland?
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 08:18 PM) unfortunately those sites are too much bigger than our
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 10:51 PM) WOOOO
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 11:01 PM) I'm sure it's possible but this isn't a blog site as much as its a login and yell about the jets site

Fuckin bullsh!t!! and right after my warranty expired!!! blowup.gif blowup.gif blowup.gif

http://editorials.te...ng-of-Death/p1/

Check this g@y ass sh!t out. The dreaded "red ring of death"!!. I went to log on this morning and my box is fvcked!! I new I should have took out the extended warranty!! now it's going to cost me 168.99 + shipping to get this damn thing repaired!! I'm SO PISSED OFF!!!! I have the absolute worst luck in the world and of course it has to happen right after my warranty expired!!

So I'm going to go with alternative measures here. I'm going to wal-mart to buy a new one (providing they don't write down the serial number) then I'm going to take it home and put the defective one in there and take it back and get a full refund. I paid 600 for this thing a year ago and I'm not going to basically shell out another 200 dollars to repair this piece of sh!t when I've only had it for one year. I've had my old xbox for 6-7 years and never had a problem. This is fuckin bullsh!t!!!

I hope they don't copy serial numbers because I'm scamming the fvck out of wal-mart straight up! if that doesn't work. I through it in the fvckin trash and wash my hands with this fuckin unit!

there are no costcos in canada? they've got the policy where they don't check anything. Google it to find out what walmarts return policy is on electronic purchases. If not, go to costco.com and have one delivered to you, and then ship it back and say it was defective.

Ahhhhh, the well-known but little used "Sears Switch," aptly named after the store notrious for turning their eye on store returns

The "Sears Switch" works basically anywhere as long as you keep the receipt. The only place I knew to have any problem with it was Target and thats after my buddy would buy PS2s and take one or two parts out of them and return them until he rebuilt a whole new one. He went to Target butthey only gave him store credit.

Like Amen said I'd go to Sam's or CostCo, any bulk operation, they tend to have more lenient store policies, although Wal-Mart is a pretty safe bet too. They won't copy down the serial number...I think they only did that like the first 3 months the 360s were out.

Good luck

If that doesn't work you should try to trade it in at blockbuster and you can get like 350 bucks for it then you will only have to pay like 50 bucks for a new one.

Yea they have costos here. I'll do the costco's thing as well if the Wal-mart plan falls through. My last resort is giving them a fake serial number over the phone and sending it in. Like the serial of my friends who's under warranty with wishful thinking they don't check it upon arrival and issue me a new one.

But one of these places have to go though either costcos or Wal-mart.

I'll keep you guys posted.

that sucks dude. i would go with the costco idea.

most of my buds in college buy tons of shit they need in costco (tvs, electronics..so forth) then when school is up they just return it for a full refund. works like a charm

Thats good sh!t to know. I have a Costco card I got from work. I haven't really shopped there much so I'm not so sure about what I can get away with. However I think I will be able to do my dirt at Wal-mart. If I see them copying the serial number of the 360 before purchase I'm outty and I'll do the Costco thing.

I have a question... If I was to purchase it from say Wal-mart, would they have a serial number of the actual unit on the receipt?

The only way I can get caught is if they open the box and check the serial number on the actual 360 device it's self. As long as they don't open it I'm home free.

i remem on the ps2 that the UPC code was right on the back of the console. so when the stores scanned the item it actually scanned the ps2 inside.

i guess the xbox360 is different cuz pulling the swap move on a ps2 was a bitch... u had to transfer the internals from one case to the other.

You have my deepest sympathies friend. I remember a long while ago, my Xbox went kaput! It was directly in the middle of a very fun game called Fable. So it was quite agonizing. Eventually I got it fixed. I hope you get yours fixed soon!

I hope so too! I work hard for my money and would hate to think of either pissing away 500 bones or spending another $150 to get it repaired. They should have been able to do this for me but they are leaches and suck money from consumers left and right so I'm not surprised.

Hopefully tomarrow I'll have a new 360. We'll see

yeah.. your post got me shook. I think I'ma cop the 2-year warranty for my 360, seeing as how the one I got is used. warranty is only $60. Add that to the total of how much I paid for the 360, and it's still cheaper than buying a refurb from Gamestop with the HDD. Last thing I want is to come home from a long day of work and get the worst red light special ever.

Hahahahaha fa sho!

Doggy if I was I'd get one ASAP... especially because it's used so it already got miles on it. I thought it would never happen to me but sure enough I became a victim of the dreaded red light of death. Do it ASAP and protect you're investment!
