ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:44 PM) It would be one thing if it was just the second half or 4th quarter but this was the whole game. especially getting destroyed in the 1st quarter and at least part of the 2nd where a lot of the guys will be on the team
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:48 PM) 2nd and 3rd stringers making the team had something to prove and even our 2nd stringers got owned so yes Im very concerned. The first stringers need breaks and also if some of them get injured they need to step up. So no after this performance start to finish Im very concerned
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 06:39 AM) Meh...you're reading too much into it

ganggreen2003 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 08:23 PM) did Hill get cut?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 09:00 PM) Haven't seen anything yet
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 August 2014 - 09:06 PM) Whos ready for the season!!? WOOOOO
azjetfan Icon : (30 August 2014 - 11:54 AM) Hill has been cut
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 August 2014 - 01:24 PM) Who wants to take bets he ends up in NE
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 02:18 PM) We'll I guess you guys are fools then in thinking im a fool for being concerned. Do any of you even know that in 2013 the Jets gave up the most passing yards in the franchise since 1986? And our secondary right now is worse than last year right now. To not be concerned is utterly foolish.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 02:19 PM) Unless our d-line has a monstrous year odds are the team will be eaten up in the pass. Every team will game plan to exploit the pass this year.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 02:56 PM) Patterson got cut
flood555 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:24 PM) Patterson must have been a huge cancer to get cut
flood555 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:26 PM) is there a midseason draft? we need a DB!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:58 PM) Our week 1 starting CBs will be Antonio Allen and Darrin Walls... wow
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:58 PM) interesting that Simms and Boyd were released
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 04:00 PM) No more McIntyre
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 05:20 PM) Pretty sure some of these cuts like Simms and McIntyre were made for removing some more cap space to try to find some decent corners and maybe another reliable wr. Possibly get some players cheap. I'd say the current 53 roster will change a good bit in the next week.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 05:23 PM) I just hope Geno doesn't get hurt or we are horse f*cked. Vick sure as hell can't stay healthy for a full season. I guess the FO could also be think of picking up an old vet cut as 3rd qb. Simms is ok but I'd never trust him to win a regular season game if he was put in.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 05:25 PM) Anyway it's going yo be an interesting week.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 10:18 PM) I doubt it was about freeing up money, considering we are way under. Like more than $20 mil, way more than enough to find some vet minimum CB
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 10:19 PM) it's more about the roster numbers. McIntyre was replaced by rookies. IK showed flashes when he played
bleedsgreen Icon : (31 August 2014 - 08:34 AM) McIntyre is a shock to me he was a solid backup and made some big plays
ganggreen2003 Icon : (31 August 2014 - 04:44 PM) 1 week till we are 1-0
ganggreen2003 Icon : (31 August 2014 - 04:44 PM) we need to annihilate the GAYders
azjetfan Icon : (31 August 2014 - 05:28 PM) We claimed McFadden from the Browns. Knows the system should be able to contribute right away
azjetfan Icon : (31 August 2014 - 05:29 PM) Watching the Browns game now. Playing all three CB spots. Looks OK. A little grabby although he has not been called for it
azjetfan Icon : (31 August 2014 - 05:30 PM) Might be a little aggressive and get burnt over top
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (31 August 2014 - 10:26 PM) FIRE IDZIK

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:17 PM) The Jets are fucked at CB, signing some bums now. We need Milliner to get healthy
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 04:20 PM) We have signed CB Phillip Adams
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:55 PM) The Gayders are playing Derek Carr against the JETS
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:55 PM) our D Line better put him in a WORLD OF PAIN
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 06:11 PM) Rookie QB in our house...Rex do your thing!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:56 PM) with Antonio Allen and Darrin Walls as our starting CBs
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:00 PM) our offense should be better than last year, Geno looks more comfortable
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:03 PM) The Jets released Jeremiah George and Ellis Lankster, hopefully George finds his way to the PS. AJ Edds was re-signed

I think its insane, but just remember, the Saudi Arabian oil reserves are bound to run out within a few decades...when that happens, were sitting on gold with our untapped Alaskan reserves.


hysterical.gif Gold huh.

You do know that IF Alaska isn't under water by then and that happens; then that is when Saudi Arabia will call in their loans to the U.S. and we'll have to pay back the money we've borrowed from them. If the Saudi's have no oil it will hurt their economy so who are they going to be looking to for money? The nations that owe them money (like the United States). Then there is China another country we owe a lot money to. As we can clearly see China really likes oil now too. So if the Saudi's have no oil China will be knocking on our door too and say "Y'all might as well just give us Alaska," since we owe them so much money. Basically if either Saudi Arabia and China's economies go south we'll have to mortgage Alaska's oil just to pay off our debts to them.

Hmmm to think 15 of the 19 hijackers on 9/11 were Saudi Arabian and some of the money we use to buy oil ends up in the hands of terrorist. But we've got to cheaply fill up or SUV's so let's keep a military presense in the Middle East to protect our oil interest, oil that is bound to be gone in a few decades. Then we can make T.R. roll over in his grave and drill in Alaska not knowing for sure just how much oil is up there. Just to have to end up giving that Alaskan oil money to the Saudi royal family and the communist Chinese government. But hey George W. Bush seems like a guy who will sit down and have a beer with me (despite being a rich W.A.S.P. from New England). Plus he'll protect us from another 9/11 and keep Sadaam bin Laden on the run, so I'll vote for him. Wait voting means I'll have to get off the couch so I'll vote for Dancing with the Stars instead since all I have to do is pick up my iPhone to do that. God bless America, because his blessing is all we'll have to save us at this rate.

Oh I hope my rant is precieved to be un-patriotic and hurt Obama's campaign since I'm a supporter of his. I mean everything I say he supports of course.

1) He is a racist. By constantly using race as a battling tool.
2) He is an extreme Liberal. If you are on either extreme you are probabaly more wrong than right.
3) He is one of those people who will never admit fault, error or defeat.
4)His life sucks and he takes it out on people who don't share in his views.

I can't change my ways, everything is so far away for me, everything has to be spread out in my town.

Instead I am going to go to plan B, I am going to raise up a army, a large army and take over the oil supply, then have free gas for me! Anyone in??? spiteful.gif

Are the prices in American done per gallon?

Over here in Britain the norm is around 1.20 per litre (just under $2.40 per litre). They had an article in The Times Saturday which compared British petrol prices to other countries and it said in Florida the cost is about 0.30/litre (a shade under 60 cents).

I passed my driving test about a month ago, but as I share my mum's car, luckilly I don't have to pay the petrol. If I had my own though, I'd probably be spending most of my money on fuel because the prices are so high.
As analogkid said, a lot of what you pay is tax anyway. In Britain for every litre of petrol, you pay 0.50 (around a dollar) in tax and VAT is also added at 17.5%!

Too bad ANWR has about a 6 month supply of oil at present consumption rates. The US should really focus on lowering demand rather than increasing supply. People should stop buying Hummers for no reason. If the US had a fleet average of 40 mpg, they wouldn't have to import oil from OPEC countries. That is possible within 10 years, when OPEC countries are broke they'll be more apt to stop terrorism.

Wow! That sucks. We'll be there soon.
Fifteen years ago after an especially disappointing loss to Miami, Esiason, then the Jets' quarterback, was making the seven-mile drive from the Meadowlands back to Manhattan.
While he was slogging through stop-and-go traffic at the entrance to the Lincoln Tunnel, the car next to him was violently rear-ended. The quarterback threw his car into park, hopped out and ran to the woman whose car had been hit. She was wearing, of all things, an Esiason jersey, and was utterly shocked when he tapped on her window to check on her.
"Are you OK?" he said, trying to keep calm. "Are you OK?"
"Boomer? Is that you?" she asked the Good Samaritan, sounding disoriented. "I think I'm OK, but . ... "
But what?
"But you guys sucked."

All we keep hearing is that rising global demand is driving prices...well consider this for one moment.

From an investment perspective, if global consumption increases by 10%, then the cost of oil should increase by 10%. If analysts predict that global demand WILL increase by 20%, then oil futures should increase by 20%. This is simple economics.

Now lets consider what has actually happened:
Global oil demand in 2003 was 79 million barrels per day.
The IEAs forecast for 2008 is 87.2 million barrels per day.
This is a 10.4% increase in 5 years.

The price per barrel in 2003 (adjusted for inflation) was $31.62. Today the price is $115.63. That is a 265.7% increase.

I call BULLSHIT!!


Nah my man. If we were talking about potatos, you'd be right on point. When you're talking about a precious non-renewable resource, you have to account for the anticipated scarcity. Demand jumped, but what is missing from you analysis is the fact that everyone (meaning governments) are anticipating further hikes in the price, so they're hoarding oil. Even though oil's utility increased by 10.4%, it's gross consumption is much greater because a lot of it is being stored.

New World Order Economics is not what they teach you at the University. Scarcity is a Farce the Tool of deception used to justify all their lying ways.they will get total control over all your lives acquire all of the wealth and just eliminate
90% of the population. Democracy is turn upside down in reality its socalism by the Corporate State . gas prices at 4-5 dollars is ecomonic warfare and turning down the heat make you people feel good about the price thinking you are getting a great deal when in fact you are not. you are all asleep I say wake up.
