Would you rather the Jets win the Super Bowl or NYCFC win MLSCup this season?
Jets, because it would be a miracle (especially with this year's team) and probably never happen again in my life.

I expect NYCFC to challenge for the cup every year. So, even if we don't win it this year, I feel like we can the next. Therefore, it will be enjoyable; but not to lifelong jets standards.

Dang you, you young whippersnappers. Why, I remember when the Jets won the Super Bowl with Joe Namath charming the whole city. Nobody wore a mink out on Broadway like Joe Willie did.



I was 9 years old at the time.

The Giants Chargers game was determined by who wanted to loose more, not who wanted to win.

With the loss and the injury of the entirety of the Giant's receiving corps I think we can officially call the Giants season over.

so I should have posted while my Bills were briefly in the playoffs ... of course they went out in one of the worst snooze fests you could ever hope to watch. Anyone watch this weekends play off games though? Caught the end of Jaguars -Steelers while out to dinner what an offensive explosion from a team who looked terrible against those Bills and then the Vikings-Saints was just one of the craziest 4th quarters and endings you could ever hope to watch.

From ESPN: Saints' Win Likelihood with 2 plays left just before the last play. I can't get it to show just before the last play. Look how much it varied at the end too.

Philly against New England essentially Boston, does that qualify as a New Yorker's worst nightmare sports wise?

I'm not so sure Philly qualifies in the same category as Boston.
The Celtics, Red Sox and of course Patriots are major rivals and objects of hatred, disdain, envy etc. Though the Sox and Pats are mostly hated by Yankee and Jets fans, I know many Mets fans and Giants fans who strongly despise them, even though the Mets and Giants had their greatest moments against them. So Boston is the common ground for NY sports rivalry. OTH, Philly is really only an issue for Giants and Mets fans. Yankee fans and Jets fans don't care even a little about the Phillies or Eagles. The 76ers are just sort of there. And my sense Is that Flyers hate is not even that big anymore with Rangers fans.
And in MLS, neither the Revs or Union generate much heat with the NY(ish) team(s).

True now that you say it I think the red hot hate in Philly VS NY comes largely one way from Philly. The fact that most NY fans would rather hate on Boston just makes them angrier/ nastier at being ignored lol.
