Yeah, I know. I hate my fellow Jets fans. Jets fans have slashed visiting fans' tires, tipped over port-o-potties on the door side when visiting fans went in there (saw this happen to a 17 or 18 years old Dolphins fan), berated women & children on despicable levels, dumped beers on fans, the Gate D situation (I used to go out there to smoke some corn at halftime, but that's where the "SHOW YOUR T---!" chants and rampant molestation of female fans would take place) thankfully ended when they torn down Giants Stadium, they cheer when their own players get hurt, and tweet certain guys death threats (like Wayne Hunter during the offseason).
The meanest spirited thing I've ever done was throw peanut shells into this idiot's jew-fro because he kept standing and doing "Let's...Go...Phins!" for the Dolphins while doing this awkward jumping-jack things in my face all game. So I started crushing peanuts in my hands, eating them, and throwing the shells in his hair. I got a solid 25 shells in there before he noticed. Stuff like that I think is funny, but stuff that Jets fans are becoming notorious for isn't.
I love my Jets, and I have a group of 30 or so fans that are intelligent, insightful, respectful and make rooting for this team tolerable. But when I go to games I'm reminded that not everyone is like me, not everyone goes to a Jets home game to get bombed, high five random people, eat some awesome bbq food and get home safe. There are fans there to enrage fellow fans, start fights or sometimes worse.
I have never and will never defend bush league actions by fans of my favorite team. I root for the team, but resent the fans more than any rival fan could.
As a Boston sports fan, I can't relate at all. Everyone you'll ever see at a Pats, C's, or Sox game is as pure as they come. Truly a classy experience full of intelligent conversation and absolutely no confrontation. You'll surely never hear the n-word.
