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

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

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:58 PM) JEts are going to remain at florham park for training camp
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:58 PM) no cortland or hofstra
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:12 PM) Unless you guys are looking for internet tv alternatives to cable or satellite tv You are better off just buying a slingbox http://www.slingbox.com/
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:15 PM) I like Directv better but ine thing Dishnetwork has is an integrated slinbox into the Genie so it is far better receiver than Directv`s
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:18 PM) With a slingbox you can just login to Slingbox and you can watch every single channel you have at home with the same guide and remote. A Slingbox basically makes it as if you have a receiver anywhere in the world you have internet access. So you get every single channel that you get at home with all the functions. setting recordings, watch recorded shows,etc.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:27 PM) Its not the same thing as Directv ans cable companies giving you access to certain channels by logging in our going to websites by logging in. You literally get every single channel from home anywhere as long as you have wifi or wired net. My cousin has a Slingbox hooked to his Directv receiver. Actually I mean hopper.....duhhhh Directv has the Genie. The Hopper has the integrated Slingbox...and thats hats the one cool thing about the Hopper not having to shell out the extra cash for a seaparate slingbox since its integrated with the Hopper
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:28 PM) Slingboxes are nice just not cheap
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 08:50 PM) :thud:
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:08 PM) I did away with paying over a hundred bucks a month. My DTV bill was crazy and even after I lowered my package to the minimum I was still paying way too much for something we really didn't use much
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:09 PM) i do NetFlix and Sling TV.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:09 PM) i was doing Hulu too but cancelled it
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:10 PM) I have $30 a month into my tv now. Locals with an HD antenna
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 11:46 PM) Word Hd antenna is real nice when you live close to a city. Here in nola everything comes in crisp and clear for a $6 antenna

About The GM;

Terry Bradway never achieved greatness at Kansas City. He had worked for eight years in the Chiefs' front office, three as their director of player personnel. He was promoted to that post after spending five years as the Chiefs' director of college scouting. He also worked for seven years as a scout with the New York Giants and three years as assistant director of player personnel for the Philadelphia/Baltimore Stars of the old USFL.

Rod Graves, Terry Bradway and Billy Kuharich, who shared an apartment, had been hired by general manager Carl Peterson to find players to help the USFL compete with the NFL.

Graves is the Arizona Cardinals' vice president of football operations. The organizations record under Graves is as follows; (1999 6-10), (2000 3-13), (2001 7-9), (2002 5-11) (2003 4-12) and (2004 2-14).

Kuharich would orchestrate the drafting of Ricky Williams at New Orleans. If you all recall, they traded Washington for Ricky Williams for all six of Saints’ picks that year (1-12, 3-71, 4-107, 5-144, 6-179 and 7-218) plus 1st and 3rd-round choices in 2000 that became the 2nd and 64th overall.

Bradway is with the Jets the same guy who gave up 2 first round picks in 2003 for Dewayne Robertson. He could have picked the following TWO players that year... Troy Polamalu SS, Willis McGahee RB, Jordon Gross OT, and Terrance Newman CB. TWO!

He traded a #2 pick in 2004 to an AFC rival Tennessee for Justin McCareins WR., Julius Jones RB was available and so was Igor Oleshansky DT, Tatum Bell RB and Nate Kaeding K.

He gave up a #1 pick in 2005 for TE Doug Jolley to another AFC team …Oakland. The team that dashed our playoff hopes 2 out of 4 years.

He keeps keep trading to AFC rivals......WHY? What about the NFC. Especially Oakland?


About the Coach:

I have always criticized the Herman Edwards' hiring because he lacks certain things a coach needs in order to build a great football team.

1) He had no prior head coaching experience; no offensive or defensive coordinator experience at any level. He was a Defensive Backs Coach from 1996-2000 for Tampa Bay and a defensive backs coach and a scout for the Kansas City Chiefs for six seasons (1990-95).

2) In 1999, he interviewed for a head coaching job in Kansas City he was quoted as saying "A lot of guys have been successful who're not coordinators," Edwards said. "Some guys have talked to me about it, but I prefer the situation I'm in now. I don't have to call plays. I want to run it; that's the situation I'm looking for." source St. Petersburg Times, published January 20, 1999

3) He prefers the 'group hug" approach to coaching and allows his coordinators to make their own decisions. The only problem is because he lacks experience, he does not know how to correct mistakes. This has plagued him each and every year. Who can forget the 6-10 year with Mo Lewis and Marvin Jones using "walkers" to tackle opposing running backs. Meanwhile Paul Hackett was throwing 2-3 yard passes on 3rd and 9. He clearly lacked leadership over his people. Santana Moss returned punts for 2 years before he was utilized in the offense.

4) Clock Management issues cost them 6 games at least in his 4 years. He still has not learned this portion of the game and continue to make the same clock management mistakes. He had problems again last week against Carolina. Who could forget calling a time out before the half and then running 40 seconds off the clock with a running play to Curtis Martin to finish the half. He risked injury to Martin and other players. For what.. a 6 yard gain! His clock management has cost this team 1-2 games per year.

5) One might argue that he has taken a JETS team to the playoffs off and on for 3 years. This was basically the same team that went 12-3 and was one-half away from going to the Super bowl under another head coach.

6) In 2001, Herman went 10-6 and improved the Jets by 1 game from the then 9-7 Al Groh. (2002 9-7), (2003 6-10), (2004 10-6) and (2005 2-7 so far) . His record currently stands at 39-39.

When you said that the defense needed a change, we fired Ted Cottrell. When you said that your offense needed a change, we fired Paul Hackett. When you said you needed help with running the clock and time management, we hired a clock management coach. You said before you just want to run the team and being a coordinator isn't important...well... run the team! We cannot keep hiring people to cover for your your lack of knowledge of game-day management.

You even had the most accurate passer in the league 2 years ago in Chad Pennington and the leagues leading rusher last year in Curtis Martin. You should be lucky to have these players. Because you and Bradway would have never had them in the first place. You guys would have probably drafted more safeties!

You give a 2-5 team that is struggling in every facet of the game an entire week off! You hold light summer camps (shoulder pads & helmets), veterans are given way too much time off in practices and your camp never focuses on the basics of football. INJURIES are related to poor summer camps and winter training programs. Tackling is always an issue with your teams. Hit more at camp! Why are most of the injuries on Offense? You should be managing this issue! This team needs a leader...not a cheerleader! A coach for the player's... not a players' coach!


To The Owner,

Keep your options open for next season. There are plenty of good people in the league that can help this club win a championship. You should be looking for a coach that can prepare your players during the off season. You should be looking for a conservative GM who works with the cards that are dealt him.
