Jets hit new low as superfan 'Fireman Ed' quits his beloved team for season
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Bill Belichick once famously quit the New York Jets, without ever coaching a game, by scribbling "I resign as HC of the NYJ" on a piece of paper.
The Jets' most attention-seeking fan, "Fireman Ed", aka former New York firefighter Ed Anzalone, used 275 words to do essentially the same thing. In a self-penned column in the Metro, the free newspaper handed out mostly at subway stations, Anzalone announced
he will no longer attend games as "Fireman Ed."
Anzalone became famous for leading the "J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets, Jets" chants at home games while wearing a fireman's helmet.
Anzalone cited the coarsening of conditions at Jets games due to fans' anger at the team's struggles this season and the quarterback controversy between starter Mark Sanchez
and backup Tim Tebow. Anzalone wears a Sanchez jersey to games and said he left Thursday's blowout loss to the New England Patriots at halftime due to heckling.
LOL Hey Mr Ed Anzalone.Dont feel bad man,,I felt the same way about my Orioles 2 years ago. When i refused to renew my season tickets because of their poor performace i had enough. And then My O's suddenly play good again. In January im gonna restart my 13 game plan again and support my O's!!!
