I Agree With Leonhard

There is a story that has been getting a lot of attention, the last few days. Apparently, Jim Leonhard and a few other Jets, were upset with all the boos in the opening intros. These boos, were directed primarily toward Wayne Hunter, and Mark Sanchez. I know the excuses people use. "I spent a lot of well earned cash on this team, it is my right to boo if I want." Of course it's your right to boo if you want to. You can also protest soldier's funerals if you want to, it doesn't make you any less counter productive.

The Intros are there to pump up the crowd and the team. You boo birds make it seem like these guys don't know they are playing poorly. The last thing these guys need is to have their spirits shaken before they even take a snap. I know that sometimes in the middle of games, frustration can reach a boiling point, but the game didn't even start yet. This was a home game for us. Our guys shouldn't have to fight the fans and the other team. They sure looked like it also. They didn't seem to be playing with much energy at all.

You can spend all that money and say you can do whatever you want, but it doesn't make you any less of a bad fan. This fanbase is so divided and fickle, that common ground is very rarely met. When I look at a real fanbase, I look at the Chiefs. They haven't won a Super Bowl, since 1970. They have had their share of horrible play, but you will never hear them boo their players. They support their team through thick and thin, and we should too. This goes back to my last post about some fans wanting the Jets to tank so we can get a better draft pick and a new OC. I find that just as counter productive, and despicable, as booing during intros. I said this before, and I'll say it again. When this team isn't playing well, that is when they need us the most. Lucky for the Jets, they are away this week. I hope in two weeks, I won't be as embarrassed as I am now.
