Are these the two dumbest Jets fans ever?

Some people just don't get it.

These guys are in that group.

NEW YORK (AP) -- A New York Jets season-ticket holder filed a class-action lawsuit Friday against the New England Patriots and coach Bill Belichick for "deceiving customers."
The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Newark, N.J., by Carl Mayer of Princeton
Township, N.J., stems from the Patriots being caught illegally videotaping signals from Jets coaches in New England's 38-14 season-opening win Sept. 9.
"They violated the integrity of the game," Mayer's attorney, Bruce Afran, told The Associated Press. "This is a way of punishing Belichick and the Patriots."
Mayer is seeking more than $184 million in damages for Jets ticket holders.

According to the AP article, the two have a history of frivolous lawsuits that often fail to make it to court. Of course they note here that the Patriots action was illegal, which is already an inaccurate statement. Sure it's against the rules of the game, but I would love to see the state statute that the Pats would have had to violate to make their action "illegal."

This doesn't even tap into the can of worms that this would open up if the case did make it to court. Do these people really think that the Jets have been completely innocent during the time period that is in question? Do they really think that other teams don't know what the Jets might have engaged in?

If this makes it to court it's going to open a gate to Hell for the NFL because the Patriots, in their defense will unearth every other team's dirty little secrets.

You gotta love it, really. Those idiots just handed the Pats the Super Bowl. (not that they needed any more motivation.)
The next Pats v. Jets game won't be pretty.
