The Jet Press: Remember our buddy, Fireman Ed? Well it doesn’t look like he is planning on returning for the 2013 season. The Jets are actually planning a way to replace him. And it’s a little bit crazy. The Jets organization has taken it upon itself to take the famous “J-E-T-S” chant, and, instead of letting the fans do it naturally, converted it into an organized event. The letters will be done by designed sections.
How do you know football season is right around the corner? No, not because you might have a fantasy football draft coming up on your calendar–because the Jets are in the headlines for off the field reasons a month before their first game. Surprisingly, it has nothing to do with players (yet) and more about how management is organizing the new J-E-T-S chant. Last season Fireman Ed quit on his team because of the “verbal abuse” he was taking for wearing a Sanchez jersey and instead of putting on a throwback Namath, he decided to call it quits. That’s when one guy in the Jets weekly Monday morning meeting sarcastically said let’s divide the stadium into 4 sections and have the fans do the chant themselves. His boss shot a look over and said that’s the greatest idea I’ve ever heard! Let’s put that on a memo to all of our season ticket holders so they know by our first home game! As if Jets fans didn’t have enough to be embarrassed about, now they have to deal with this shit. It’s getting to the point where I almost feel bad…ALMOST.
Under/over of a J-E-T-S chant every home game counting the kickoff = 2.5
