Jersey is right across the water and it's all just imaginary statelines seperating us. Plus there are a ton of people that go to work in Manhattan and are from Jersey.

Dont think its an issue, we can all root for the teams.
teams represent metro areas, not cities. And the Jersey shores of the Hudson are as NY metro every bit as much as Westchester or LI. More, when you consider how close in they are to Manhattan.

that's why nobody considers the Arlington Cowboys to be America's team

Yeah... maybe a few teams don't play in the city they're from, but at least they play in the same STATE! The Jets & Giants are traitors to NY and should be treated as such!

They used to until 1995. They split the season on home games between Milwaukee County Stadium and Lambeau Field.

This thread was 7 years dead. New Jersey built them a stadium, NYC did not. It's not like they moved too far. Can't you see Manhatten from the Meadowlands lot?

As much as I'm on C-D, I don't go looking for old threads, maybe I should!

Sorry, that makes zero sense.

Obviously, the primary market of the Jets and Giants is the New York (city) metropolitan area, which extends beyond the state of New York and into New Jersey and Connecticut - and not some far-flung upstate cities hundreds of miles away (even though they in, as you would say, the 'same STATE!').

Who cares? (well, you do, but it's a mystery why)

Why Do the Jets and Giants play in NY and NJ in NY??
No offense, but as an Arizonan, I guess it really doesn't matter one iota to me.

Damn right. And the Dodgers and Giants play their home games way out west. Brooklyn and Coogan's Bluff fans are pissed about that, I'll bet, because you know how mad the Dodgers' fans were when they played a few home games a year across the river in Jersey City.

The Jets were going to build a new stadium in Manhattan a few years ago, and that whole thing fell apart. Didnt the Knicks owner have something to do with that?
