518-JeTS-FaN Icon : (21 March 2015 - 03:34 PM) how is he the ass clown? it was jets fans who attacked the dude .
ROBJETS Icon : (21 March 2015 - 08:46 PM) And that is why I said Villanova and Wisconsin didn't deserve a #1 seed. Nova owns a team gifted a spot in the tourney then gets owned buy a team not even ranked in the top 25 in the next round
ROBJETS Icon : (21 March 2015 - 08:49 PM) By schedule end of season rankings. Nova split games with #22 Georgetown and beat #24 Butler and #25 VCU.....not much of a resume for a #1 seed only facing ranked teams only ranked in the 20`s
ROBJETS Icon : (21 March 2015 - 08:52 PM) Wisconsin was even worse against ranked teams. Lost to # 4 Duke Lost to #12 maryland and beat #23 Michigan state twice. Not much f a resume for a 1 seed
ROBJETS Icon : (21 March 2015 - 08:56 PM) As I stated before Virginia and Arizona shouldve been #1 seeds. Vrinia only lost to one ranked opponent. Duke. and Arizona beat all their ranked opponents. and all their ranked opponents were top ten and top 15 ranked. Don't know wtf the NCAA was thinking gifting Nova and Consin 1 seeds with shitty ranked opponents wins and losses.
ROBJETS Icon : (21 March 2015 - 08:59 PM) Losing to Duke is one thing but Wisconsin losing to two ranked teams and one of them ranked 12 shouldn't have give them a 1 seed. Bye Bye Nova
ROBJETS Icon : (21 March 2015 - 09:01 PM) Wisconsin has skill and size though I want Az and Consin to face each other in the elite 8 to see who is tougher
ROBJETS Icon : (21 March 2015 - 09:05 PM) Im proud od the Pac 12. Like everyone else I didnt feel UCLA deserved to be in the tourney. They got owned a good bit in the regular season but only 4 Pac 12 teams made it and 3 have moved on to the 16 so far. If Oregon beats Wisconsin tomorrow all 4 teams will be in the sweet 16.
RetireChrebet Icon : (22 March 2015 - 01:26 PM) What was that we were saying about Virginia and a 1
RetireChrebet Icon : (22 March 2015 - 01:26 PM) seed?
RetireChrebet Icon : (22 March 2015 - 01:28 PM) Haha I'm jk man, but my point was if you've never seen virginia play you would know they weren't going anywhere. Their offense is just painful to watch.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:46 PM) Lol....point taken. But a couple of things. 1 you do realize Nova and Va are in the same bracket right? 2 at least Va lost to a top 25 ranked opponent. Nova lost to an unranked.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:49 PM) Also VA beat some good teams. Lost to Duke,beat Maryland and split games with NC and Louisville. Their wins against quality and ranked opponents was higher and better than Nova.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:55 PM) NC State didn't even get one vote to be in the top 25
2JBallar01 Icon : (22 March 2015 - 10:53 PM) @RichCimini: Random contract note: Antonio Cromartie's 4 yr/$32M deal with Jets includes only $7M gtd - $5M base + $2M roster bonus at signing. #nyj

ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 05:56 AM) Az bitches!!!
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 06:01 AM) I dont know about all that. As bad as we get over sports the Brits get far worse. You might suffer a huge beat down if you say the wrong thing there. Well maybe not being its televised to the U.S.. Security probably be pretty tight.
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 06:03 AM) Well...... the good thing is I know who to mooch off of now if I go to London.
JSOTF Icon : (Today, 06:47 AM) hahahaha, it isnt European Football!
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 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 : (Today, 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 : (Today, 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.
JSOTF Icon : (Today, 07:36 AM) hahahaha
JSOTF Icon : (Today, 07:36 AM) damn Europeans!
JSOTF Icon : (Today, 07:37 AM) They havent fucked with a disgruntled, lifelong Jets fan!!!

I'm unemployed right now and so are millions of other Americans, and it doesn't look good for the immediate future. There's 12% unemployment in Florida where i live. It makes me sick to hear Revis turn down that kind of money. I don't want him as a member of my Jets.

I like the idea. Why wouldn't this work for the Jets? He gets $100 mil in his pocket no matter what. If he keeps up his performance, he can go over Aso's salary by way of bonus money. I wonder how much the Jets are guaranteeing in their contract offer.
[/quote]

It doesn't work that way, and i'm not trying to be a jerk, but obviously you don't understand NFL contracts. he doesn't get 100 million no matter what. the whole contract will never be guarenteed, and at the end its teh total compensation and what yoru saying will be 160 million which is exactly what revis wants and what the jets won't give him

where did[i] you get 160 mil thts a number f[/i]or someone like C mart but not Revis. Revis doesn't translate into points.But than this is just a game as we will soon find out.I am afraid that this could change revis as a shut down corner he has upset his destiny its on a different course now.

The 160 number came from a report stating the Jets offered a 10 yr 120 million dollar contract, but Mevis' people came back saying it was 40 million short.

Mevis is trying to get this huge payday because he knows he wont be getting another one after this. I got a bad feeling we're going to get scerwed even harder by him after he does finally get a deal. This'll likely be his last contract because no one is going to want to touch him after all this is said and done. He likely wont be a shutdown corner anymore because his mind will be too busy thinking of his bank account rather than his duties on the field.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

When someone annoys u, it takes 42 muscles in ur face 2 frown. BUT, it only takes 4 muscles 2 extend ur arm & b!tch-slap that mother@*?!&! upside the head!!

:Cry:

So, a quick recap here. D. Revis is in the middle of his rookie contract. He has rejected a 10 year, 120 Million Dollar contract. D. Revis wants 160 Million Dollars. You have got to be f***ing kidding me. I see why ticket sales and all the merchandise is so much money. Holy f*** batman. If you arent willing to take a 120 Million Dollar contract for the chance to play on what could be the greatest defense in a long time, and even a Super Bowl? WTF are you doing as a football player?

IDK if you watched hardknocks last night, but they had MT driving to meet with revis's people at that now famous friday meeting at roscoes diner that lasted 3 hours. The cameras weren't allowed in the meeting but when MT came out he seemed very down and upset and all he said was he didn't even agree with 1 thing they said all meeting.

By Rich Cimini
ESPNNewYork.com

CORTLAND, N.Y. -- The New York Jets and the agents for Darrelle Revis reached a truce, issuing a joint statement Thursday in which they vowed to work toward a resolution to the contract standoff.

"Both parties have had conversations to clear the air and will continue to negotiate with the hopes of reaching an agreement," the statement read. "From this point forward, all discussions regarding these negotiations will remain confidential."

It's time for the Jets' brass to be quiet, and just focus on signing Darrelle Revis, Johnette Howard writes.

Minutes after the statement was released to reporters, coach Rex Ryan was asked to comment. The usually talkative Ryan looked at the Jets' public relations director, turned back toward reporters and said: "Can't talk about it."

The sniping between the two sides escalated in recent days, with the agents calling the Jets "blatant liars." It prompted Ryan to make an unorthodox proposal: He invited Revis and his agents to training camp to meet with the entire team. Then, on Wednesday night's debut of "Hard Knocks," general manager Mike Tannenbaum painted a grim picture of the Revis negotiations. In recent days, owner Woody Johnson has made a media blitz, making ominous statements about Revis' chances of playing this season.

The war of words -- and the blatant posturing -- is over. Now the question becomes whether the two sides can hammer out a deal, As of early this morning, they were miles apart, according to sources.
The All-Pro cornerback has missed 11 days, including Wednesday, since the team reported for training camp at SUNY Cortland. He's scheduled to make $1 million in the fourth year of his six-year rookie deal, but wants to become the league's highest-paid cornerback.

Revis is seeking a deal bigger than the three-year, $45.3 million extension Oakland's Nnamdi Asomugha signed last offseason. He has not commented publicly since minicamp in June.

There are a few things I have realized about Mr. Jet over a few topics.

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.

You are aware that there is a thing called the salary cap right? Or at least there will be. That's the issue. Who cares if it's for five years or ten years, once the cap is back in place it's gonna be ridiculously hard to pay a guy that kind of money who's not your quarterback. Not to mention that no one has any way of knowing what the cap will be when it comes back.

And on the 13th day of Darrelle Revis' holdout ... there was silence. Again.

Both the New York Jets and Revis' representatives honored their gag-order agreement, with neither side commenting publicly on the negotiations.

After a media blitz aimed to win public support and put pressure on the Revis camp, the Jets have shut it down. The All-Pro cornerback's chatty agents, too, haven't returned phone calls.

An interesting subplot will be HBO's "Hard Knocks." In Wednesday night's premier, the show devoted a considerable amount of air time to Revis' holdout, with comments from Rex Ryan, GM Mike Tannenbaum and owner Woody Johnson.

Will the Jets lift the media blackout for HBO, allowing the cable network to air Revis-related material in next Wednesday's episode? That, of course, would be a double standard. The Jets won't comment on their plans, deferring questions to HBO.

"We will continue to follow all of the important storylines concerning the New York Jets, including Darrelle Revis," an HBO spokesman said. "If management tells us a matter is private, we will honor that request."

A nugget or two on the negotiations would make for good TV -- no one is denying that -- but it also would make the Jets look bad and two-faced. If you want to keep it confidential, stick to your guns.

Meanwhile, the two sides continue to work toward a resolution. Revis, seeking about $16 million per year, has said through his agents that he won't report unless he gets a new contract. The Jets are offering short- and long-term deals, the latter a 10-year, $120 million proposal. How much is fully guaranteed, however, remains a question.

People familiar with the talks believe the Jets' best chance of getting Revis into camp is with a "band-aid" contract, a short-term agreement that bumps up his 2010 compensation from $1 million. In that case, they could re-open long-term talks after the season, when the league's labor situation might be clarified.

The Jets' short-term offer contains about $5 million in 2010 pay, and there's no way that will get it done. If Johnson wants Revis, he'll have to step up with more cash.
