I like the many nice, friendly knowledgeable fans on this board 


I won't call anyone's name as a good example or a non example, but we have a LOT of very friendly, nice, smart Jets fans on here.  They have opinions but don't demand that their opinions be afforded predominance, they are funny but not too sarcastic, they support the team and players but look for ways to improve, they complain about stupid moves but they don't harp incessantly on mistakes, they feel horrible after a loss but have a "get em next time" outlook, they are optimistic but realistic in that way that only a long time Jets fan can be, they criticize players but aren't mean or hurtful, they stand up for their beliefs but don't engage in never ending pissing contests with other posters, and they make me laugh and think about things in new ways

I wish EVERYONE on here was like that, but I'm happy many people are
ROLL TIDE!

There are several posters on here who set a high bar, one I wish I could clear but know I still have to work on. It's because of those guys that this board is by far the best Jets board out there - and trust me, I have tried the others over the years. This is the best, and it's because of you guys. I only hope in the future I can reach the same bar so many of you have set.

Around here, it's important to see the forest for the trees, as the saying goes. Occassional dumb comments should not overshadow the great insight that many regulars bring here. And what a great place for training camp updates and other info that's hard to find elsewhere. Thanks to all of those people who make this place a great place to visit.

Let's wait to see what happens when/if this team struggles.

There will be a fair share of negativity with each loss, but then we will move forward as fans and look ahead to the next game day. As a lifelong Jets fan, even though I don't live anywhere close to NY/NJ, there's nothing better than game day.

Nice thread.

But yea, last year was my rookie season as a poster here on this forum. Have enjoyed every log-in that I've made here as well. I actually read more than I post, and I truly enjoy lots of the knowledge and insight in which is displayed throughout these thread topics around here. I've actually been a longtime poster on three of the most popular Jet sites for a little over 10 years now, and now that I've found this place? I'm pretty sure I'll never return to any of the other Jet forums. Why? Because this place has quality over quantity. Unlike JI, GG and JN; This place isn't hijacked by opposing trolls wile each and every thread becomes de-railed from NE Patriot fans (Such as PatsFanFromTx). It was pure sickening. On those other sights I also found myself being personally attacked on a daily basis (and the Mods were the ring leaders). I can honestly say, that I've been over here for just about a year now and rarely see threads being hi-jacked and have never been personally attacked. The only thing I've received in return from posting over here? Has been sports talk after more Jets sports talk. I thank you all for that.

Really nice community you all have built and put together over here.

It totally comes off as cheesy, but yeah, we have built a small Jets family over here. There are times when some of our guys have family spats, but we generally get over it more often than not.

I've been on other sites and boy, it's night and day.  This is a real tight knit website.  All possible due to our great Moderators, Sack, 51 & Hobs.

One thing i like specifically is that there is no tolerance for trolling.  That in itself is such a turn off when i go to other Jets sites.

The community here is smart , intellectual and hysterical in some facets.  Always a great time when i'm on here.

That is absolutely true. We don't tolerate trolling. It has led to the loss of a small group of former regular posters, but they can't keep violating the Community Standards over and over again.

I think the community is a lot stronger for it, too.

I couldn't agree more. I have been to other boards, and they are weak by comparison. I'm not sure any are worse than the forums at theganggreen.com. Just awful.

This board definitely has the most knowledgeable fans.  I'm sick of the trolls that just start crap to get a rise out of people.  This will be the only board I go to from now on.
