The Nets are leaving New Jersey. Does anybody care? How will people remember the N.J. Nets?
From Monday night marks end of N.J. Nets era:
"Sorry, but the greatest Net of all time was Dr. J."
- Dr. Dave 61
Ed.'s note -- Sure, but he played for the New York Nets, at the Nassau Coliseum, not in Jersey.
From Chris Christie: No love lost for Nets:
" '(The Prudential Center is) one of the most beautiful arenas in America they have a chance to play in, it's in one of the country's most vibrant cities...' Is that what Newark is now? Vibrant? Really? Christie needs to shut his piehole....."
Ed.'s note -- He needs to shut his what?
"This move makes no sense. It's not like Brooklyn's a vast improvement over Jersey in the first place."
- Tito M.D.
Ed.'s note -- The pizza alone is a vast improvement.
"Hey put it this way... At least New Jersey still has the "Jersey Shore" heh..."
- Kobeto Clippers
Ed.'s note -- True. More people root for Snooki than the Nets.
"Right Chris, Newark is much cooler than Brooklyn. Sure it is.
Christie's like a guy dumped by his girlfriend because he's a boring rube, then screams "Good riddance!" at her exhaust fumes. Pathetic."
Ed.'s note -- Nobody likes seeing a guy cry about getting dumped. What's he supposed to say?
"When u cant sell out a stanley cup game...what does that say about your fan base your moron"
Ed.'s note -- The Devils and Nets have different fans, but still ... that is very sad.
"still got the devils"
- Ryan Bucks
Ed.'s note -- Sure. Maybe Newark will become Hockeytown East!
Look for these FanSpeak pieces on a regular basis (hey, at least you know we're paying attention).
