The Jets don’t have to play in Giants Stadium anymore, but they still feel like they are being treated as second class citizens.
The New York Daily News reports Jets owner Woody Johnson is “outraged” after the Giants won a secret coin toss Monday to determine what team gets to play first in the new Meadowlands Stadium. Apparently, no Jets or Giants representatives were in attendance for the flip.
The decision was reportedly made at the league offices, an odd development after a NFL spokesman said Saturday that commissioner Roger Goodell would solely determine the schedule.
Whether the league likes it or not, Johnson’s “outrage” is going to create the impression that the decision was conveniently rigged. And the Jets, as usual, got the short end of the stick.
We can’t wait to see Tuesday’s back pages after this one.
