I'm surprised but NY is a big city and a lot of people come from there!! The number surprises me but not the fact that there was a rally! I just hope we don't see a big Jets turnout tomorrow at the game!!! That would be depressing!!

The rally was before the Jets LEFT for Pittsburgh.

Loosely related ... I was at a rare Saturday afternoon Pens vs Rangers game many years back, and there were busloads of Rangers fans there. They were obnoxious (hundreds sitting several rows above me), having apparently had an 8-hour rolling drinking binge that morning. After the 1st period in which the Pens hammer the Rangers, I walked out to the concourse and about to walk past the women's restroom when a huge girlfight spilled out of the doors and into the concourse. There must have been 40 or 50 girls swinging, pulling hair, scratching etc. Maybe some of that will be seen at the game tomorrow.

The media got it wrong? Imagine that.

I imagine the media would love a NY/CHI SB. Big markets. Money.

They probably did report that. NFLN is a joke.

I thought Rich Eisen was gonna stomp his feet last week when Brady choked.

I think you heard it wrong (at least if you heard it on the NFL Network). I watched the clip and they did say it was in NY.

My bad. Running a fever. That's what you get.

Up in my area (the last 5 rows of the upper deck end zone bleachers), we had more than our fair share of Jet fans, but we always get opposing fans up here...I think our team gives the other team its allotment of our tickets for their players from up near me (I recall Rod Woodson and Carnell Lake's families sitting near me back when they played for Baltimore when Heinz first opened). Throughout the stadium as a whole, there wasn't all that much green to be seen. They were reasonably well represented, but I don't think that there were necessarily many more Jet fans there than your average game against Baltimore, Cincy, or Cleveland.

From where I was sitting, I did not see any Jets fans nearby.

However, I was sitting on my couch.

:P

There may have not been any Jets fans near your couch, but there probably was a Cheetahs' staffer videotaping you from behind an end table. Never to early for Bellicheat to start collecting film for next season.

No doubt brother, no doubt! It is amazing how after that scandal blows up in their face that they cannot seem to win a SB again. Wonder why that is?
