The creators of the website that called for former Jets general manager John Idzik to be fired spent their money on trolling a rival team instead: They flew a plane with a banner “Cheaters Look Up!” over New England Patriots practice on Thursday.
PLUS: Esiason, Benigno have screaming match about Tom Brady suspension
Here’s what NYJetsFans.com owner Jason Koeppel told Metro about the plan:
“The time has come for Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and Robert Kraft to start dealing with reality. Sports fans are not stupid. We have seen this act before from disgraced former superstar athletes. People like Lance Armstrong and Ryan Braun who challenged the system after they got caught red handed. Ben Johnson, Marion Jones, A-Rod, Roger Clemens — the list of people who lied after they got caught cheating is sadly endless.
“Why not learn from their mistakes? Take a lesson from Pete Rose who is still banned from baseball because of the way he acted after he got caught. Give up your ridiculous campaign of lies and accept your punishment. Have some integrity. Stop this ‘Tom Foolery’ today”
The plane was flown by the owner of Jersey Shore Aerial, a New Jersey company. And if NYJetsFans.com sounds familiar, it’s becuse they recently launched a campaign to bring back superfan Fireman Ed back to Jets games.
Here are photos of the banner that flew over practice:
