What is the worst incident you have witnessed against an opposing fan or yourself at the ballpark?
  • "A major brawl spilled on to a lady who was seven-to-eight months pregnant. In 36 years, there have been many at Jets home games, but this was disturbing."
  • "A New England Patriots fan urinating in his seat and claiming it was just beer to security."
  • "Some guy wearing a Dolphins jersey was having problems breathing after getting into a verbal shouting match with a few guys. The medics had to come and they loaded him up on a stretcher. As they were carrying him down the stairs everyone started tossing bottles (some still full) and anything else they could find at the guy. All the time he's flat on his back, getting oxygen, strapped to a stretcher. Hanging with the Jets crowd is like going to a frat party. That's why I go to one game a year and that's it."
What is your favorite memory from a game at the stadium?
  • "Fans wearing paper bags over their heads saying "J-ust, E-nd, T-he, S-eason" during the Rich Kotite era."
  • "The Jets' Monday Night comeback against the Dolphins with Jumbo Elliot making a touchdown catch."
  • "A recent December game versus the Steelers. It snowed all morning and throughout the game. There were not many fans there, but the ones who showed up enjoyed Curtis Martin running all over the Steelers and the snow-covered field. Great atmosphere, great game. Also, announced before the game was the capture of Saddam Hussein, just crazy."
