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 : (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

Jets hold focus group: Fans slam team over PSLs and Vick

Jets fans have some complaints, and they let the team’s management know at a focus group last month in Manhattan.

The Jets hired Luntz Global to conduct a focus group with 22 current and former season-ticket holders and heard from unhappy fans about everything from MetLife Stadium to the team not signing cornerback Darrelle Revis when he was available, according to one of the attendees.

“Most of the people don’t like the new stadium and certainly are not satisfied with the direction the team is going,” said the attendee, who is a former season-ticket holder.

Famed pollster Frank Luntz conducted the session on March 13, and the group of 21 men and one woman gathered to share their experiences as Jets fans with members of team management, including president Neil Glat, watching from behind one-way glass. After the two-hour formal session, Glat and other Jets executives met with the group.

Glat told The Post the focus group was just part of the team’s regular effort to gather information from fans and not precipitated by any worry about ticket sales. This was the first time the team used Luntz to conduct a focus group.

“We’ve been doing this for a long time,” Glat said. “It is an opportunity for us to ask what else should we be doing. I would assume the majority of NFL clubs are doing this kind of research. I don’t think there’s anything that generated it. It’s not out of concern. It’s about getting ahead of things.”

The Jets heard from some unhappy customers. Not surprisingly, personal seat licenses (PSLs) continue to be a sore point.

“One issue that came out loud and clear is that the PSL holders are very dissatisfied,” the attendee said. “They feel trapped. They are going for less than half of what they paid for them on the open market.”

Much of the session was spent on the team’s image. The group was asked whether they believe owner Woody Johnson truly wants to win or is more concerned about making money.

The gameday experience was also a big topic.

“Pretty much everyone said it’s going downhill,” the attendee said.

The fans were not asked specifically about personnel moves, but they brought them up. The attendee said the fans were overwhelmingly against signing quarterback Michael Vick, a move the team made eight days later.

“Somebody brought it up and said don’t touch that guy,” the attendee said. “We just spent 10 minutes talking about branding and the team’s image, and then they are going to sign that guy?”

One person even brought up the Giants owners as an example of why the Jets should not touch Vick.

“Do you think the Maras would bring people in like Vick?” the fan asked Jets management.

The fan said it was disheartening to see the team sign Vick the week after hearing directly from fans that they were against it.

“I was annoyed that you brought us in the focus group and 90 percent of the people told you that it wasn’t a good move, and then you did it anyway,” he said.

Glat said the focus group was not meant to gather fan opinion on roster moves.

“It was not designed to talk about personnel,” Glat said. “It’s about the stadium experience and what we can do year round.”

Fans also were unhappy with general manager John Idzik. The session was conducted a day after Revis signed with the Patriots, so the wound was still fresh. Some of the fans criticized Idzik’s slow start to free agency.

Head coach Rex Ryan received favorable reviews, the attendee said, but fans emphasized they did not want him making Super Bowl predictions.

The Jets clearly are thinking of introducing variable pricing. This is when teams place different prices on different games — for example, preseason games may cost $50 but a game against the Patriots or Broncos might cost $150. This is something several teams have employed this year. The group was asked if they thought it would be fan friendly. It would not affect the overall cost of season tickets but could help fans sell tickets on the secondary market and would encourage single-game ticket sales.

Eh. What else would people say? They want it cheaper better and faster. Its never enough. As a none ticket holder I can't comment on the PSL bit more than that but as a fan I can say I like what Idzik is doing. He is doing the opposite of Tanny. Building with the long term in mind. He is not perfect and is still learning his role but I am happy as of now. He has another year of grace in my mind. Also I do think the Giants would sign Vick if they did not have Manning. I also have no issue with that. Outside of knowing we will not be in contention this year I am fairly satisfied.
