ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 07:04 AM) Ive seen a lot of videos. Most countries go psycho over their soccer teams. Ive seen some serious very bloody beat downs. Fans stabbing the players and refs,etc. And they say we are bad in the U.S. not even close to that.
ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 07:06 AM) I think one was in Africa....a fan stormed the field and was knifing everyone in sight after his team lost
ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 07:08 AM) Hell even in mma when the Brits come over they are all cocky as hell. Big time cocky like they are going to easily destroy everyone they face cocky.

ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:37 AM) London is 4 hours ahead of east coast U.S. Bellator prelims are 7pm Friday night U.S. East Coast time and the main card is 9pm So just add 4 hours to that if you can catch either. Im sure you can catch a stream or use a U.S. VPN if you dont have access to Spike.com. You guys might get Bellator on another channel their just like with the UFC.
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:47 AM) Anyway only reason I mentioned it was because of your sense of humor. The last Bellator 134 was called the British Invasion. If you watch mma Might want to add this site to your favorites http://www.mmauk.net...y/bellatornews/
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:55 AM) There was one of those hour long shows about the upcoming event featuring the fighters the prior week to Bellator 134 and all 4 of the Brits were cocky as hell. Yelling "The British are coming!!!!"
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:57 AM) By the way 135 is tonight if you are interested. I used to watch pretty much all the televised mma now I stick with Bellator and UFC only
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 03:07 AM) that last link is a UK mma site. Only reason i added it. http://www.sherdog.com/ is pretty much the best mma site on the net for everything mma

santana Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:57 PM) negative
santana Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:58 PM) I'm a fan of the apple tv though. I just use a clients fios tv account to access the different services like watch espn
santana Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:59 PM) i also have hbo go netflix amazon prime. with hd antennas i get the local channels as well.
azjetfan Icon : (30 March 2015 - 03:00 PM) I tried the watch ESPN ap but since I cancelled my DTV it said I needed a provider.

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:58 PM) JEts are going to remain at florham park for training camp
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:58 PM) no cortland or hofstra
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:12 PM) Unless you guys are looking for internet tv alternatives to cable or satellite tv You are better off just buying a slingbox http://www.slingbox.com/
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:15 PM) I like Directv better but ine thing Dishnetwork has is an integrated slinbox into the Genie so it is far better receiver than Directv`s
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:18 PM) With a slingbox you can just login to Slingbox and you can watch every single channel you have at home with the same guide and remote. A Slingbox basically makes it as if you have a receiver anywhere in the world you have internet access. So you get every single channel that you get at home with all the functions. setting recordings, watch recorded shows,etc.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:27 PM) Its not the same thing as Directv ans cable companies giving you access to certain channels by logging in our going to websites by logging in. You literally get every single channel from home anywhere as long as you have wifi or wired net. My cousin has a Slingbox hooked to his Directv receiver. Actually I mean hopper.....duhhhh Directv has the Genie. The Hopper has the integrated Slingbox...and thats hats the one cool thing about the Hopper not having to shell out the extra cash for a seaparate slingbox since its integrated with the Hopper
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:28 PM) Slingboxes are nice just not cheap
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 08:50 PM) :thud:
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:08 PM) I did away with paying over a hundred bucks a month. My DTV bill was crazy and even after I lowered my package to the minimum I was still paying way too much for something we really didn't use much
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:09 PM) i do NetFlix and Sling TV.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:09 PM) i was doing Hulu too but cancelled it
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:10 PM) I have $30 a month into my tv now. Locals with an HD antenna
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 11:46 PM) Word Hd antenna is real nice when you live close to a city. Here in nola everything comes in crisp and clear for a $6 antenna
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 09:15 AM) Now I just need to find a reliable stream for the Jets games.

QUOTE
Jets' Washington having breakout season
By Jane McManus
The Journal News November 21, 2008

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - After Leon Washington was drafted by the Jets in the fourth round in 2006, the running back would pay attention to Curtis Martin, even though the veteran was injured.

He'd watch Martin during position meetings as he carefully took notes so neat and precise that Washington was amazed.


OAS_AD('ArticleFlex_1'); "When he takes his notes, he has the best handwriting I've ever seen," Washington said. "It goes to show how much detail he puts into everything he does in life."

Washington's notes aren't perfect yet, but he got the overall message. Now in his third season with the Jets, Washington is known for practicing just as hard as he plays. The running back has been improving field position and gaining key yards all season. Washington last week was named AFC special-teams player of the week after the Jets beat the Patriots for sole possession of first place in the AFC East.

That's only one of the plaudits Washington has received this season. He leads the NFL in combined yards with 1,475 and broke the team record for career kickoff returns for touchdowns with his fourth. He has also had some heads-up plays for the Jets, such as making sure he was out of bounds to stop a rolling ball on a kickoff return. Due to a little-known rule, the Jets got the ball on the 40-yard line.

"He's a great player,'' running back Thomas Jones said. "He's gifted, he's got great speed, great vision; he can do it all, whether he's running the ball, catching the ball or returning. He's a great player, and we're glad to have him on the team."

Consider then, that Washington is doing this all at 5-foot-8 and 202 pounds. There is a huge variety in an NFL lineup when it comes to sizes and shapes - offensive linemen look very different than cornerbacks - but even taking that into account, Washington could be at a disadvantage.

"Yeah, if you look at Leon's stature as far as his weight, size and height, you'd say by NFL standards, especially for the running-back position, he can't survive," fullback Tony Richardson said. "But the size of his heart is probably bigger than half the guys' in this room."

Washington, who came out of Florida State after growing up in Jacksonville, said he has always refused to see his size as a drawback.

"The best guys that played this game, some of the guys like Barry Sanders, Emmitt Smith, they were 5-10 and shorter, so I can use that to my advantage," Washington said.

During the offseason after his second year in the league, Washington went up 25 pounds on all his lifts and took the Jets' offseason training crown. And he isn't afraid to block. In the first Patriots game this season, Washington got in between Brett Favre and Adalius Thomas before the linebacker ultimately sacked Favre with Washington hanging on.

"That's Leon," Richardson said. "I'll put him in a fight with anybody, especially on the football field because he's going to give you everything he has with his ability."

Where other guys are loud and boisterous off the field, Washington treats the Florham Park facility as an office - he's all business. He takes this seriously, and on game day, that's the way it needs to be.

"When he gets out there you see that passion and that excitement he brings," Jets center Nick Mangold said.

For Mangini, who used to get on Washington for fumbles and missed plays in Washington's rookie year, it has been good to see him come into his own this season.

"It's really satisfying to see," Mangini said. "He's one of the guys that came in with me and to see his growth and development is great."
