They are passionate about their team, and use the excuse of being passionate whenever they cross the line. The Jets players were serenaded with boo’s and other profane language as they walked to the locker room at the half of their humiliating loss to the Patriots.
Jets boisterous linebacker Bart Scott has a message for those same fans via the New York Daily News, and it’s not very kind.
“At the end of the day, if you made it to be able to put an NFL uniform on, then you are one of the best athletes in the world,” Scott told the Daily News. “The person yelling at you probably was picked last in dodgeball all through high school. So do you care about the opinion of them? No.”
Scott’s comments were in response to a Deadspin video that showed those same loyal Jets fans letting their team have it in a not so nice way. Scott continued on to describe what it’s like dealing with Jets fans.
“That’s what we always get. We get stuff like that all the time,” he said. “Trust me, that’s not out of the ordinary. You get that behind our bench while we are playing. Trust me, there’s been worse stuff said behind there.”
