JSOTF Icon : (26 March 2015 - 03:59 AM) Smeds, where did you get your tickets?
ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 05:56 AM) Az bitches!!!
ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 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 : (26 March 2015 - 06:03 AM) Well...... the good thing is I know who to mooch off of now if I go to London.
JSOTF Icon : (26 March 2015 - 06:47 AM) hahahaha, it isnt European Football!
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.
JSOTF Icon : (26 March 2015 - 07:36 AM) hahahaha
JSOTF Icon : (26 March 2015 - 07:36 AM) damn Europeans!
JSOTF Icon : (26 March 2015 - 07:37 AM) They havent fucked with a disgruntled, lifelong Jets fan!!!
Smedsthejet Icon : (26 March 2015 - 02:49 PM) Got my tickets from Ticketmaster the day they went on general sale
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:33 AM) You guys get Bellator in London? http://www.bellator.com/schedule its on Spike tv free regular cable channel. in the U.S. and the prelims are free on http://www.spike.com/
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
JSOTF Icon : (27 March 2015 - 07:08 AM) I actually live in Germany
azjetfan Icon : (27 March 2015 - 09:08 PM) Just got done sitting in traffic for 3 hours in Louisville KY.

[quote]Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco was fined $25,000 Tuesday for violating two NFL game policies - possession of an electronic device and posting messages on a social media site - during the Bengals' preseason win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Aug. 20. [/quote].

LOL why don't they see this guy is good for the NFL and lighten up a bit on him?

25k is a 20 dollar bill to us.

And they have to enforce the rules, it isn't like 85 cares either way.

But I do agree, it's annoying.

I still don't understand how holmes smokes pot and loses 4 games, vick dog fights (which is a horrible act, don't get me wrong) and loses 2 years and goes to prison, plax shoots himself loses his career and goes to prison, yet big ben rapes like 20 women and gets a 6 game suspension? That is all.

The difference between Vick and Burress and Roethlisberger is the fact the former two have been found guilty in a court of law while Big Ben is yet to be.

Ochocinco does add fun to the league and he is a great character, but I can understand the rules about tweeting during a game. Although given it was preseason the league could have been a bit more lenient. Anyway, doesn't that money go to charity as it is?

Holmes = busted smoking pot

Vick = convicted of dog fighting

Plaxico = convicted of the gun charge

Big Ben = not convicted of anything.


Oh and what does this have to do with 85? He wasn't suspended.

I think they settled out of court and that's the reason Big Ben got the suspension.

Thanks for the Memories

They need to leave Ocho alone. He's one of the best PR people the league has. Fining him for likely posting something on Twitter? Come on. There's hundreds if not thousands of fans that tune in just to see what kind of crazy shit he'll pull each week.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

I thought it was great when he dared to league to fine him for wearing pink cleats for the entire month of October to support breast cancer awareness. What a PR disaster for that NFL that would have been if they did.

ocho is one of my favorite non jets players. He isn't the reciever he once was anymore, but he is still one of the most entertaining guys who truly loves the game and his team. Hes the perfect temate, you never hear any complaints from his teamates or coaches, and he works hard and just enjoys playing like a kid.

The one thing that stands out to me that I respect the living hell out of Ocho for is that he SHOWS that he's not in the game for the money. He's in it for the love of the game and for the fans. If he was in it for the money, he'd surely not be doing the things he does and gets fined for.

A lot of other players around the league could learn a lot from him. I'd take him on the Jets in a heartbeat. Even with his skills not being what they once were, he's still a premiere receiver in this league.

I can honestly say everytime I hear Ben Rapistburgers name I shake my head and realize even though I love my country it has its problems. I know he was not convicted but he is as guilty as you get.

I look at it this way the rule for no electronic devices is there for a purpose.

One..... to keep teams from cheating and two..... to keep the game disciplined.


All of you are crying about him getting fined because he broke a rule. If coaches were using electronic devices for cheating youd be bitching. If your favorite team really sucked and all the players were on cellphones or playing video games on the sidelines youd be bitching.

The rule is there for a reason and he broke it. If the league starts being lenient on rules that are rightfully in place then who is to say it wouldnt start a problem with multiple players and coaches,etc. having devices.

How could you prove there wouldnt be cheating and many unfocused players?????

Good rule and justified fine.

AH, a voice of reason! You have a job(catch the football,score a touchdown, throw an occassional block)You get paid very well, there are rules and regulations. Break the rules, suffer the consequences. It IS that simple. In the real working world,if you continually thumb your nose to the employer, you'll probably find yourself somewhere else. By the way, does this ENTERTAINER not have his own TV show that one could watch to enjoy all of his hijinx and funniness?

Wasn't Bill Bellichump fined only $50,000 personally for his instructing videographers & other people to steal signals, etc in the whole Spygate scandal? Sending out a Tweet from his blackberry doesn't seem half as bad as what Bellichump did so why should the fine be so unbalanced?

I understand the need for discipline but c'mon. Let's actually take a look at the action, the surroundings and the circumstances surrounding the violation. He tweeted during a PRESEASON game. So what? I hope he appeals the fine and wins. The NFL needs more players like him.

Belichick was fined $500,000 rather than just 50 grand. They also lost a first round pick and, if I remember correctly, the Patriots organisation was hit with a whopping fine.
