While the Saints are my team, mainly for the same reasons as others in that I would be gutted when they would lose, but the Jets are my "second" team if something does exist.

The reason for me was when I went to New York I decided to take in a game and it was Jets vs. Oakland, opening game last season and it was fantastic. Everything about the game and the atmosphere was great, and it was a Jets win also. I do keep an eye out for them now.

I'd been a Jets fan since I was around 7. That's 30 years ago. There was an American marketing event in my local rugby club, and they had stalls with NFL there. I got given some jets merchandise, and saw them on channel 4 a short while later. I used to check the scores on ceefax, hehe.
As I got older, and especially during school, john madden and NFL was popular among a few of us, although the jets were shockingly bad I still stuck with them. Been to New York twice, but no Jets games. But I'm really excited for Wembley. Although we'll be outnumbered by Miami fans, I think. They were more popular during 80's and have a good uk following.

I am a huge Mets fan and many Jets fans are also Mets fans. I love inclement weather games, running offenses and defensive football. I started to get interested in the NFL when Rex took over as head coach and so everything came together.
I always say that you don't pick a team, a team picks you.

Hey guys, I'm an NFL "Newbie".

Saw this thread and wanted to say hello.

I've been a huge MLB fan for about 5 years, although I've never been to a game. I sub each year to MLB.tv and the Mets are my team. Naturally that led me in to taking an interest in the Jets last year and I'm happy to be part of the Jetnation now!

Picked up a reduced "Limited" Tebow home Jersey from NFL.com and had it delivered to a friend in the States who brought it back over. Only cost me £20, dont think I could ever get a Game jersey seeing how good the limited ones are!

Cant wait for the game on October the 4th, hopefully plenty of us Jets in attendance!

last night was a good one, had the Mets on mlb.tv through laptop, redzone on TV and the Jets comms on ESPN New York. Great results for both teams.

Lets go Jets!

Lets go Mets!

Awesome! Same as me. Huge mets fan since 2006 when the almost got to the world series.
Been to loads of baseball games including minor league. Seen the mets twice both at Shea.
I think most mets fans are jets fans as well and so there is a great atmosphere at games over there. Enjoy.

i am new to the NFL and new to this website, however i have decided to choose the Jets to follow as my team (even though i prefer the Giants uniform). No real reason to be honest, i didn't want to be a glory hunter as that would just be boring! so here i am! looking forward to learning the history and getting behind the team with full force!

GO JETS

Good man. If there is anything you want to know about the Jets or NFL in general then feel free to ask any of us regulars some questions.
