Read: Fans Don’t Care About The Money

In the Toronto Globe and Mail, Ken Dryden writes that fans shouldn’t be put into a position where they have to think about the money of hockey and why that is topping games from being played.

The owners and players have the power. They decide when to play, and if they don’t. The fans understand a fight can be long if something basic is at stake; a salary cap, for example. And they’ve found they can live with the consequences. But they don’t understand this fight. The owners and players are both doing fine. They’re doing a lot better than the fans. These aren’t easy times. What more do these owners and players want?

Harvin was a malcontent everywhere including the Super Bowl Champion Seahawks, why wouldn't he be a malcontent on a 1-6 team (laughing).

SNY announced today that Braylon Edwards trashing the Jets will now be a weekly feature.

Has Harvin punched out anyone yet? Or does that come after the afternoon meetings?

The Jets have a healthy environment for Harvin according to Idzik...I guess the Seahawks and Vikings didn't.

I am also assuming that Goodson and Patterson didn't get immersed in the Jets environment fast enough and that is why they melted down...

What no one said, " if that's the case, we chould have taken DeSean Jackson when he was available"?

The NYPD just created a task force to follow Percy Harvin.

"Percy Harvin aimed JUGS machine at Sanjay Lal and hit him with 6 footballs on the highest setting. Sanjay tried to catch them, but they bounced off his head each time. "This guy is a menace to society and should be suspended forever!" shouted Mr. Lal after receiving treatement for lacerations on his forehead and nose at NJ State Hospital in Florham Park, NJ.

The beat writers are so snarky, even tweets that are just quotes have hashtags that make them drip with douche.

Idzik says that this trade could be a potential coup for the Jets. Kill him now for being so darn positive?

Have they arrested Percy Harvin yet? Has he turned into a vampire ?

Is he plotting with Dr. Evil to destroy the Jets ???

I really hope that Harvin scores a 80 yard TD on Sunday. I just want everybody to shut up about his "anger management" issues.

@a57se The difference between the Seahawks and the Jets situation is Harvin will play a much larger role in the offense.  Besides, even if doesn't work out the Jets will only be out a 6th round pick

@a57se You just copied that idea from Cimini, but good effort, pal.

I can't wait to see how this whole thing unfurls!

I just hope the damage to the jets is minimal.

@bradysucks

I heard Percy Harvin showed up to Florham Park and festooned his new locker with items from his personal collection of black and silver Schutzstaffel apparel.


THAT'S RIGHT, PERCY HARVIN IS A NAZI.  AN ACTUAL NAZI.

@Paul Samuels 

Harvin could score 10 TD's this Sunday v Buffalo...that doesn't mean his anger issues aren't real and aren't going to become a problem sooner or later.

I don't care how long Harvin's TD is, just so long as he scores one.   Jets WR have only scored four times so far this season...and three of those are by Decker.  Think Kerley's got the other.  About time some other guys got into that action.   Getting tired of settling for Nick Folk in the red zone.

@Paul Samuels They won't, they'll keep poking the bear until the bear lashes out and then go "SEE!? SEE!? WHAT A JERK!"

@J. Smooth @a57se

I got it from the JETS TWITTER link on this Blog...are you saying that Idzik didn't say that? 

Paul Samuels

@hazard2012 @Paul Samuels If Decker and Harvin both score, that would be even better! Harvin should help spread the field though. Kerley is the most likely to benefit from Harvin.

@Disgruntled Jets Fan

He'll score five TDs and we'll win by 40, but then he'll be mildly curt to Manish in the locker room postgame, and NONE OF IT WILL HAVE MATTERED AT ALL.

@a57se Idzik didn't say this part: 


"I guess the Seahawks and Vikings didn't."


Or this part:


"I am also assuming that Goodson and Patterson didn't get immersed in the Jets environment fast enough and that is why they melted down..."

Jets players have scored 19 touchdowns this season and only 13 of them counted.


Edit: Forgot to include the one Harvin had scored.

I just bought you a FERRARI......The old owner didn't like it but it's a Ferrari and from everything we can tell it still works perfectly....

I don't want a Ferrari !!!!

@Disgruntled Jets Fan I know the Chiefs are particularly bad at WR.  Their top four wide receivers have 48 catches and no TDs between them...

@Disgruntled Jets Fan


Jets top five receivers upgraded from 62 and 4TDs to 76 and 4TDs by getting Harvin btw.

Decker, Harvey, Kerley, salas and ...? I assume you're not counting Nelson anymore.

@Disgruntled Jets Fan Hey, if the whole "superstud Ace pitcher" thing doesn't work out, he's 6'4" and 225. That's a big 'ol WR if there ever was one.
