Fan of the Jets since: 1984
Why the Jets: Had an old Jets t shirt and I didn,t know who they were , when CHANNEL 4 started showing the games and I realised this had to be my team. They were also an exciting team to watch at that time. I got my mates involved shortly after and they have all seen their teams win the Superbowl , hopefully this is my year.

Favourite Current Jet(s): Washington, Harris
Favourite former Jet: Mark Gatineau
Favourite Jets moment: Watching the Jets beat the Dolphins 51-45 in OT ,on the old videos from Pontel (those were the days, and some people moan about not getting red button games)
Worst Jets moment: The double overtime loss to the Cleveland Browns in the playoffs plus every Patriots superbowl victory.

Hopes for the season: Ive got to say superbowl again.

Fan of Nfl Since: 1985 - Bears "Refridgerator"
Fan of the Jets since: 1985
Why the Jets: I got thinking about this last year, as I started watching the NFL in 1985. After four or five years, stopped watching it and got back into it about 7 years ago and I am transfixed in front of the TV on a Sunday night.
So I got thinking why the Jets, as I always knew that I wanted to support, but couldn't remember why I picked them initially.
Then I watched "Flash Gordon" a rare classic from many moons ago, and he was a New York Jets Quarterback, so it must have been from there I picked the Jets, some years I think it was a foolish decision, but I can't help but love them, and they are my team FOREVER AND EVER.

Favourite Current Jet(s):Revis, Washington, Keller and hopefully SANCHEZ.
Favourite former Jet: Curtis Martin
Favourite Jets moment: Beating the Pats 34-31 in New England
Worst Jets moment: Failure to keep up the good work from the first half of last season through to the end.

Hopes for the season: Hopefully Sanchez can start well and we can have a good season, Hope we can get to the post season, but fear we may just miss out, with what is a very good AFC conference.

Name: Jonathan

Age: 18

Location: Fermanagh, N. Ireland

Fan of Nfl Since: 2003/2004

Fan of the Jets since: 2003/2004 - Really noticed how passionate a fan I had become in the 2005 playoff games.

Why the Jets: Ask myself this every day

Favourite Current Jet(s): Mangold, Leon, Revis, Rhodes, Jenkins, Brick, Keller etc. (I really could go on!

Favourite former Jet: Wayne Chrebet, Curtis Martin

Favourite Jets moment: Beating the Chargers in the epic overtime game in the Wildcard round.

Worst Jets moment: The week after that - Doug F'ing Brien.

Hopes for the season: That Sanchez looks like the real deal. I like everything I've seen from the kid thus far and really feel good about him. I think we could be a competitive team but this guy is our future and he is the franchise from now onwards.

Age: 22

Location: London

Fan of Nfl Since: 2001

Fan of the Jets since: 2001

Why the Jets: Sounds ridiculous but at the time (2001) my friends were in to American Football and tried to get me in to it aswell. So i used to check the scores on Sky teletext to see what teams there were and Testaverde was in the background so i asked my mates who he played for and thus i started closely following the Jets and have been supporting them ever since.

I also have relatives in New York which seemed to make sense.

Favourite Current Jet(s):Revis, Leon, Pace, Rhodes, Jenkins, Harris.

Favourite former Jet: Chrebet, Curtis Martin, Mo Lewis, Marvin Jones, Richie Andeson, Mawae to name but a few.

Favourite Jets moment: Trouncing the Colts 41-0 in the 02/03 playoffs. Was a thing of beauty.

Worst Jets moment: As mentioned by Jacks Jets, Doug Brien missing his TWO FG's against the Squeelers in the playoffs was a bitter pill to swallow.

Hopes for the season: For Sanchez to have a solid first year and to make the playoffs. Would also love to sweep the Patsies.
