ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 09:36 PM) If they keep ZHill after this game I will be shocked.
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 09:38 PM) Philly gave us a worse ass whipping than Detroit gave Buffalo. only difference is we scored
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 09:42 PM) Im just wondering what manning will put up on our secondary? 70?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:12 PM) who cares about getting destroyed in a preseason game, especially the 4th one. Most of these guys won't even make the team
ganggreen2003 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:15 PM) Hill cut yet?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:18 PM) FIRE IDZIK
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:21 PM) Yeah this game means nothing...except to Stephen Hill (who fumbled lol) and 115
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:23 PM) Hill is a bum, hes pretty much never shown much football skill. The Jets fucked up big time taking him over Alshon Jeffery.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:29 PM) I'm still pissed off about that
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:43 PM) Its not that Im worried about the preseason game itself. i could care less about that. Its the fact of how bad we got destroyed. And some of the guys will be on the team and others on the fringe so getting destroyed like that doesnt fill me with confidence
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
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 06:40 AM) Even in seasons where the Jets blew, I haven't seen anyone refer to the preseason to complain. Ever.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 09:15 AM) fire izdik http://theredzone.or...rs/Default.aspx
Jetsman05 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 11:17 AM) I picture Rob and 115 as real life friends
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 04:01 PM) Holmes can still play, problem is that hes also a cancer. He wore out his welcome with the Jets
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 : (Yesterday, 08:34 AM) McIntyre is a shock to me he was a solid backup and made some big plays
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:44 PM) 1 week till we are 1-0
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:44 PM) we need to annihilate the GAYders
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 05:28 PM) We claimed McFadden from the Browns. Knows the system should be able to contribute right away
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 05:30 PM) Might be a little aggressive and get burnt over top
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:26 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 06:58 AM) ^^^ agreed
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 12:25 PM) all the admins on this page should be fired
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 12:25 PM) for being assclowns

Members Of Congress Urge Redskins To Change Name

"We will never change the name of the team," Snyder told USA TODAY Sports this week. "As a lifelong Redskins fan, and I think that the Redskins fans understand the great tradition and what it's all about and what it means, so we feel pretty fortunate to be just working on next season."

What if his football team loses an ongoing federal trademark lawsuit? Would he consider changing it then?

"We'll never change the name," he said. "It's that simple. NEVER you can use caps."

YES. Only because there is a team named the Redskins already and that team has a strong brand. I'm tired of every minority with a lobby getting on a soap box and demanding this and demanding that. How is having a team in DC named the "Redskins" a detriment to the quality of life for people in American Samoa? If it's that bad, maybe Samoan players should refuse to play for Snyder. That would send a stronger message than any public servant flapping their arms with some pathetic attention grabbing letter designed to coerce a private company (which the Redskins are) into changing their brand. It's absolutely ludacris that a PUBLIC SERVANT is allowed to do that. Worry about your constituents in your district. Don't try to elevate yourself or your agenda by picking on a world famous brand. Fuckoutta here with that bullshit.



Every minority with a lobby? Does that include groups that lobby congress like the NRA or the Sierra Club? Those are minority groups too. The congressman (delegate) from American Samoa (Eni Faleomavaega) is a native of the Samoan peoples which is a territory of the United States of America, thus making him a Native-American. His ancestors were in Samoa long before the USA came there and said this is ours now. Congressman Tom Cole is a member of the Chickasaw nation. Congressman Grijalva's district is near the Yavapai reservation. So some of them make up his constituency. Also Faleomavaega and Elenore Holmes Norton (the D.C. delegate) are NON-VOTING members of congress. Meaning all they can pretty much do is "get on their soapbox" and lobby others to do something. IMO every player and coach should refuse to play for or against the Redskins. But of course the NFLPA is a weak union with indifferent and undereducated membership. So that's not going to happen. Most of us (fans) don't even know a Native-American let alone care about them (just look at how we ignore the fact that the merchandise we buy is made by Asian slave labor). Out of site, out of mind. So there is not going to be a fan boycott of the Redskins or the NFL. So the things that would send a strong message won't happen because the majority of NFL fans (people who aren't and don't know any Native-Americans) aren't going to send that strong message. The majority (us non-Native-Americans) aren't doing anything to change a wrong, so what is the minority to do? What other recourse do they have to voice their views on this Redskins name issue? I guess express those views to their elected officials? People like Faleomavaega, Cole, Grijalva, and Norton for instance. But I guess you're right we (the USA) took their land from them, reneged on the treaties we signed with them, committed mass genocide killing off millions of their people, tried to enslave them, and forced them to either assimilate into American culture or live in poverty and die. But if that's not bad enough let's also use a racist slur used to demean them, all so an already rich man can make even more money because he doesn't want to change his strong "brand." That's the most fucked up argument a person can make to keep that ridiculous name. f*** his "brand." I bet if when Snyder bought that team and their name were the "Washington Kikes" he (a Jewish person) would have changed that name on day one of his ownership. That's why I don't buy that "keeping the brand name" argument. It doesn't slur him or his people, or the majority of the NFL's fanbase. So that's why he won't change it even though he knows it's racist.

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.

This is probable the tenth time I told you this. Every time an issue comes up, you take one paragraph and expand it into 3, then the 3 to retort your 3 into 9 etc etc. I just don't have the patience for it. I think the Redskins are fine, you think the government has a right to tell them to change their name. Lets leave it at that.



Are you feeling inadequate that your posts aren't as long as mine? Go buy a pickup truck and a big gun. This is probably the tenth time I've told you this. Like I really give shit about you (or anyone else) having a problem with how long my posts are. Read them, don't read them, I'm still going to do it. Is that concise enough for you?

I highly doubt a good amount of people (including some in this thread/members of this forum) bitching about how Congress doesn't do x,y, and z can actually name their representative (or any of their other elected officials for that matter).

My guess would be no since the organization does not actively discriminate based on a protected class. They just have an offensive name.

Yeah but I was talking about the federal government being able to influence the way a private company conducts its business. I wasn't entirely sure if the gov't could use its powers to influence the way Snyder conducts his business. I figure article II would just prohibit a NFL team from doing something like not selling tickets to Asians because their Asian for example. But if that's the case then I guess it does apply to that discussion, because we were talking about the gov't being able to use it's power to affect the way a private company conducts business. That stuff isn't fresh in my mind anymore.

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.

Every minority with a lobby? Does that include groups that lobby congress like the NRA or the Sierra Club? Those are minority groups too. The congressman (delegate) from American Samoa (Eni Faleomavaega) is a native of the Samoan peoples which is a territory of the United States of America, thus making him a Native-American. His ancestors were in Samoa long before the USA came there and said this is ours now. Congressman Tom Cole is a member of the Chickasaw nation. Congressman Grijalva's district is near the Yavapai reservation. So some of them make up his constituency. Also Faleomavaega and Elenore Holmes Norton (the D.C. delegate) are NON-VOTING members of congress. Meaning all they can pretty much do is "get on their soapbox" and lobby others to do something. IMO every player and coach should refuse to play for or against the Redskins. But of course the NFLPA is a weak union with indifferent and undereducated membership. So that's not going to happen. Most of us (fans) don't even know a Native-American let alone care about them (just look at how we ignore the fact that the merchandise we buy is made by Asian slave labor). Out of site, out of mind. So there is not going to be a fan boycott of the Redskins or the NFL. So the things that would send a strong message won't happen because the majority of NFL fans (people who aren't and don't know any Native-Americans) aren't going to send that strong message. The majority (us non-Native-Americans) aren't doing anything to change a wrong, so what is the minority to do? What other recourse do they have to voice their views on this Redskins name issue? I guess express those views to their elected officials? People like Faleomavaega, Cole, Grijalva, and Norton for instance. But I guess you're right we (the USA) took their land from them, reneged on the treaties we signed with them, committed mass genocide killing off millions of their people, tried to enslave them, and forced them to either assimilate into American culture or live in poverty and die. But if that's not bad enough let's also use a racist slur used to demean them, all so an already rich man can make even more money because he doesn't want to change his strong "brand." That's the most fucked up argument a person can make to keep that ridiculous name. f*** his "brand." I bet if when Snyder bought that team and their name were the "Washington Kikes" he (a Jewish person) would have changed that name on day one of his ownership. That's why I don't buy that "keeping the brand name" argument. It doesn't slur him or his people, or the majority of the NFL's fanbase. So that's why he won't change it even though he knows it's racist.


I skimmed through this giant block of shit that you wrote and here's what I think: it took a strong black person in every sport to stand up to the injustice of the time. Right? Even before the Jackie Robinsons and the Chuck Coopers, there was a movement within the sport and within the sport communities that let you know, even a decade ahead of time, that this is not right. Change is coming. How come none of this happens with the Redskins? The Redskins have been around for more than 80 years. In that time span, there have been dozens of Native American players and hundreds of polynesians in the league. How many complained? How many refused to be part of the Redskins because they were offended? There are hundreds more playing DI football, how many have gone on record saying that they wouldn't play for the Redskins? NONE. You know why? Cause it's not the same thing as having a team called the New York Ni99ers. You know how I know? Because if the Jets changed their name to the Ni99ers, no sane black athlete would play for that team and a few would probably try to kill Woody! Would Cam Newton play for the Carolina Coons? How about Russell Wilson getting drafted by the Seattle Porch Monkeys? NO NO and NO!!!! This lobbying efforts by a handful of Congressmen would have you believe that the Redskins are causing a bot of harm to the communities that they represent, but they don't. Polamalu is from American Samoa. He doesn't cut his goddamn dirty hair because it pay an "homage to his ancestry"... but not once did he say that the term "Redskins" is offensive nor did he ever sit out a game against them. That's my barometer for whether this is right or wrong. Not some politician trying to get his name into the papers.

Yes I group all special interests with lobbying power together. I don't care whether they're Native Americans, farmers, oil etc etc it's all detrimental to our nation. Unfortunately, no one cares enough to change how things work so we'll forever be doing the bidding of the guy that's got enough on the line to pay someone to bang their drum for him.

Not sure how broad a scope you want me to research. The commerce clause exists so government can keep up with evolving business and industry and take action when an industry starts acting in an unlawful manner. Like the Sherman Anti Trust Act and stopping business from descriminating in the 60s. It cannot stress that a business in a lawful industry not in violation of any laws be forced to change its brand because it's deemed offensive. There's absolutely no precedent for it.

Do you know who your representative is so you can tell him to tell his colleagues to mind their business?


I'd vote for David Wright.
