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

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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 07:08 AM) I actually live in Germany
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:08 PM) Just got done sitting in traffic for 3 hours in Louisville KY.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:09 PM) Unbelievably poor planning by the DOT.

Jets Still Owe Denver For Tebow


You might be wondering why the Jets still haven't released quarterback Tim Tebow. Hardly anybody expects him to have any kind of relevant role for the team this year, and you probably would be hard-pressed to find anybody who believes that he'll even be around by Week 1 of the 2013 season.

But still, Tebow is hanging out, readying himself for the beginning of offseason workouts and proclaiming he's going to have a great attitude about it all.

But why? Why haven't the Jets cut him yet in favor of Mark Sanchez, David Garrard and Greg McElroy? Why do they continue to keep around one of the most controversial players in the league who has almost no chance of contributing to the team?

Money, of course.

As recounted by the Denver Post, the Jets still owe the Broncos $1.53 million from the 2012 trade that brought Tebow from Denver to New York, and the Jets reportedly are still trying to trade Tebow in an effort to get anything for him.

More from the Post about the trade that almost wasn't and why the Jets still owe the Broncos:



Tebow's officially listed salary for 2013 is $2.58 million, but he is to collect only $1.055 million. The Jets don't have to pay this if they release him. The other $1.531 million goes to the Broncos. The Jets are stuck with this bill even if they dump Tebow.

When the Broncos traded Tebow to the Jets last year for fourth- and sixth-round draft picks, Mike Tannenbaum, the New York general manager at the time, was surprised to learn his team also needed to pay $5.06 million of prorated advance salary the Broncos had paid.

The payment was a deal breaker for a few hours until the Broncos and Jets agreed to split the difference of $2.53 million. The Broncos received $1 million last season and are due another $1.53 million from the Jets this year.


The Jets tried shopping Tebow at the NFL combine and, naturally, there were no takers. In fact, it seems likely that Tebow will have a tough time finding an NFL job at all this season.

Jacksonville, his most obvious destination, has shown no interest. It seems more likely that Tebow could end up in the AFL than with the Jaguars (or the other 31 NFL squads).

In reality, though, wherever he lands, he'd probably just be another distraction. Isn't that right, Mike Mularkey?

“As the Jets shop Tebow, they aren't expected to ask a potential buyer to pick up his $1.53 million advance salary payment. But the Jets would like something in return,” the Post writes. “A seventh-round draft pick. A drawer of tight-fitting Jockey undershirts. Something.”

Most likely, they won't get anything. Which is probably why a Tebow release is upcoming sometime this summer or early fall.

A complete waste of money for us, which is exactly why I believe that bringing him in was entirely on Woody just to sell PSL's and merch due to his popularity at the time because everyone knew he couldn't play QB worth $hit.

Why is this news again? I'm pretty sure this information came out when the trade went down.
