I think it's a bad sign if you have to ask. You're honestly wondering if this season's Jets are more "on stage" than they were in 1998?

Looks like the salty Giants fan has been booted off the island.

I really don't know why the coverage (and yes, it's way more than 98) bothers these people so much. Most Giant fans are Yankee fans by default, so now I have to sit here every morning and see the endless goat-rodeo of Damon, Jeter, and A-Roid.

Next season, if the Giants go 13-3 and the Jets go 3-13, Big Blue will be plastered all over the Post, Daily News, Newsday, the Times, and every other media outlet in the NYC area. And it should be that way.

EDIT: Remember 2007? It was endless Giants coverage, and every now and again there would be just a little snippet of Jets coverage. I'm fine with that. The Giants deserved more coverage due to their Super Bowl run.

I think that media coverage is only determined by the team's record to an extent. Generally, the Giants get the overwhelming majority of space, whether in the papers or on the air. Unless the Jets do really well (and simultaneously, the Giants don't), blue tends to rule over green. I don't like this arrangement--personally, I believe that so-called "journalists" who haven't heard the phrase "impartiality" should be handed pink slips. But I acknowledge the reality of the situation.
