Jets Fans React To Darrelle Revis Signing In Grounded, Restrained Manner, As Expected


For those who still don’t get it, professional sports is a business, and as Jerry Seinfeld said, ultimately “we’re all rooting for laundry.” A bunch of bandwagon San Francisco Giants fans learned that recently when closer Brian Wilson, fresh off of shoulder surgery/rehab, hopped down the coast to sign with the hated Dodgers.

And now here’s former Jet Darrelle Revis, pulling up anchor on Revis Island and sailing that sucker to Massachusetts. Sure there was a stop in Tampa Bay on the way, but that didn’t seem to bother Jets fans very much. At least then, no jerseys were torched.

Last night and today — as it was announced that Revis would sign with the rival Patriots — it went all four-alarm blaze in New York.

Oh, this isn’t helping.

Bucs fans were not as passionate. But what they lacked in vitriol, they made up for in sarcasm.
