Benz Posted March 4, 2010 Share Posted March 4, 2010 Let me take a little break here for a moment from the Red Sox and cover a topic that is very important to the Miami people here. A rivalry that I side with them on... The Dolphins-Jets Rivalry! DID YOU SEE THAT SHIT?! HE DID THAT SHIT IN COLOR!!! THAT SHIT WAS LIKE OMG WTFBBQMYLITTLEPWNIES!!! VS I think some of youse may know of this asshole... Let's see what wikipedia says (and once again, correct them where they're wrong...) The Miami Dolphins-New York Jets rivalry is a rivalry between two franchises in the National Football League. No shit, Sherlock. The teams both play in the American Football Conference East Division, and play two scheduled games each season as a result. OMG NO WAI! I HAD NO IDEA... They have often competed for divisional supremacy, and have played a number of classic, memorable games. RU4SERIOUS?! Currently, the Jets hold the advantage in the all-time series with a record of 46-40-1, ...but not for long... while the Dolphins have won the lone postseason meeting, defeating the Jets in the 1982 AFC Championship. Thank God for that! Eh, just basics so far, but let's continue... History The New York Jets were established in 1960, (Co-incidentally the Patriots started in 1960 as the Boston Patriots and played in Fenway. What? You think Joe-Robby-Dolphin-Land-Shark-Sun-Tree-Huggin-Life-Other-Gay-Named-But-It-Will-Always-Be-Joe-Robby-To-Me Stadium was the first to feature Fooseball and Baseball? Nope.) and the Miami Dolphins in 1966; both as members of the now defunct American Football League. After the merger of the AFL and NFL in 1970 the Dolphins and the Jets were placed in the AFC East, guaranteeing that they would meet twice a year annually. The rivalry has stayed intense through the years as both teams are always competitive against one another no matter what the standings indicate. Bah. Nonesense. The Jets were just lucky last year. They suck. The Dolphins seem to be coming along these last few years... The rivalry also keeps a high intensity because the large amount of transplanted New York Jets fans that retire to South Florida. Oh dear God... that explains alot. Hey! Jets fans retire down there... There's alot of Yankees fans down there... Jets fans are Asshole McDouchebags... Yankees fans are Asshole McDouchebags. Coincidence? I think not! Prior to the New England Patriots rise to dominance in the early 2000s, (OH HELL YEAH!) the Jets and Dolphins regularly contested for the AFC East title (along with the Buffalo Bills in the early 1990s). Upon the Dolphin's joining of the AFL in 1966, the Jets were laying the seeds for their 1968 Super Bowl III victory. Seeds of evil. After the Jets Super Bowl victory in 1968, the Dolphins began their ascension to the top of the NFL, culminating back-to-back Super Bowl wins in 1972 and 1973. The 1972 season also Miami finish with a 17-0 record; the only time in the modern era that a team went undefeated in the regular and post season. Damn the Giants...another NY team I don't like... 18-1. Oh well. Someday. Well, I'll pause here for now. Some food for thought, especially among the Dol-fans!
