Gate D Boob Bitches About Boobgate Coverage

Posted in Free Expression, Gridiron, Mob Behavior, Sports Journalism at 1:49 am by

Who knew that genuine sexual harassment of lady folk was in fact, a cherished cultural rite, if not a form of public demonstration protected by the First Amendment? If you’re willing to buy into the twisted logic being peddled by MySpace member Jets Tits, I’ve got a topless photo of Rich Kotite I’d like to sell you. (thanks to Rog for the link)

The article, written by David Picker, contained many factual errors. It was written with a terrorist-like objective to instill fear and anger among Jets fans and the entire American public. He sparked a media campaign against the “degenerate Jets fans” who take part in this half time ritual and ignited a movement to clean up the Stadium when in reality there is nothing to clean up.The halftime ritual is very simple. A large group of fans, men and women, would congregate on the Gate D ramps. Both the men and women play their own part in this ritual. It is very scripted and calculated. There are a set of unwritten rules that must be followed and deviation from these rules are not tolerated and met with harsh criticism by everyone on the ramps.

The crowd gathers when there is 2 minutes left in the 2nd Quarter. The ramps really fill up right at halftime. The first step is the warm the crowd up. Various participants take on the role of Fireman Eddie. Someone leans over the railing, quiets the crowd and then proceeds to lead the masses in T-I-T-S TITS TITS TITS!!! The fans modified the main New York Jets cheer. J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS!!! became T-I-T-S TITS TITS TITS!!!.

After the first or second round of cheers, a woman is spotted in the crowd standing by the railing as if she was answering our mating call of T-I-T-S TITS TITS TITS!!! The leader would then point to the woman and the crowd would go wild. Screams of joy, happiness, relief, anticipation….until the leader again quiets the crowd and begins the chant…T-I-T-S TITS TITS TITS!!! The eager woman then will play to the crowd. She will tease and taunt until everyone in the crowd is ready. The third chant is typically when it all happens. With the guidance of our version of Fireman Eddie, T-I-T-S TITS TITS TITS!!!
and she flashes the crowd and it starts all over again…

Mr. Picker, where is the coercion? Where is the violence? It is in the stadium at the seats from the people watching the game. That is where numerous fights occur, that is where people are ejected from the stadium and that is where I would not dare bring my 7 year old child. 3 women were ejected from stadium because of indecent exposure at Gate D while 147 people were ejected for violent acts inside of the stadium.

Gate D is a peaceful demonstration by the fans both men and women. It is a good time by all those who attend. The fans are very respectful of those who participate and those who do not. If the fans were unruly and violent then this would have been terminated long ago.

The creep responsible for the above manifesto, while lacking the courage of his convictions to supply his own name or likeness, promises that a future MySpace blog entry “will be all about David Picker. Photos, where he went to school.” ‘Tis not nearly enough that these knuckle-draggers can’t get their skulls around the notion women might wanna attend a public event without being menaced, but they’d like to intimidate journalists while they’re at it, too.

It should be stressed that nowhere in Picker’s article did he refer to the Jets fans in question as “degenerate”.   Other than one critical comment from a 40 year old father of two (“that™s a disgusting practice and the police have to get involved”), Pickering’s piece had nothing even close to a value judgement about the Gate D activities. It did feature excuses / buck-passing from the NFL and NJSEA, one woman who liked showing off, and one fan who was “disappointed, because we™re used to seeing a lot”…and that was about it.   Picker merely shed light on a longstanding practice the Jets and Giants Stadium have slept on.  If Jets Tits would prefer some kind of environment where he and his buddies can ogle women and act like morons without fear of reproach, are such establishments really that hard to find in the Tri-State area?

    Maybe they should stick to Nets games?

    Exactly, why not just go to The Bing?

  3. ok listen i am a season ticket holder my dad has had em since the 60s and i have been going since i was 5 and i am now 23. I sit in section 335 right at section D. This tradition has been going on for years not just because they are a bad team. I go to every game with my dad and my SISTER. She knows what goes on there but it’s only common knowledge not to walk near a crowd of drunk men, let a lone a crowd of drunk men yelling “SHOW YOUR TITS” its harmless fun. This guy who wrote this article in the times is just mad that he got arrested for asking questions. Stop ruining the fun….this is NY (technically NJ) its harmless fun if anybody who has their “expert” opinion on this actually have witnessed this in the past they would know that if girls dont wanna show their tits they simply dont and when she gets targeted she simply walks away there is no mob attacking her they just move on to the next girl. It is honestly ridiculous that this is “exposed” now and how all you so called “men” have your panties in a twist and if you actually witnessed what goes on at section D at halftime you would know it is nothing to be offended about just harmless fun.

  4. David Roth says:

    It doesn’t bother you that there are places at Giants Stadium where your sister shouldn’t walk? Where you wouldn’t want her to walk? It’s your sister, man.

    “I go to every game with my dad and my SISTER. She knows what goes on there but it’s only common knowledge not to walk near a crowd of drunk men, let a lone a crowd of drunk men yelling “SHOW YOUR TITS”.

    Alex, it’s a public place. Your sister and everyone else should have the right to go wherever they want in Giants Stadium without having to witness this or be the subject of it. It doesn’t matter how many women (or men) find this bullshit amusing or inoffensive. That any percentage considers the Gate D scene menacing (and the videos on Jets Tits’ myspace page don’t exactly do these schmucks any favors) is exactly the sort of thing the NFL and the Jets oughta be concerned with. That they’ve turned a blind eye until now just makes Picker’s work all the more relevant.

    If you wanna pretend this is no big deal and everyone-should-know-what-to-expect when they visit the pseudo-Bing, fine. Have a tit flashing party at your house (or your sister’s). As long as the Meadowlands is a state regulated facility, the public and media alike have every right to shine the brightest light possible on Gate D.

    Picker didn’t identify himself as the reporter detained, but if he was the journalist who was told to stop asking questions, yeah, he oughta be mad. And so should you. But if you really wanna live in a country where reporters can be intimidated or imprisoned for simply doing their jobs, you might wanna consider the consequences. Today, it’s David Picker being harassed for his Boobgate coverage. Tomorrow, perhaps it’ll be Alex Benesowitz being barred from MSG or having his ISP cut him off for having the temerity to suggest Eddy Curry needs to lose weight.

    But thanks for the “so called ‘men’” comment. I’d previously thought about calling Jets Tits and his buddies a bunch of dickless losers, but realized that was kinda, y’know, sexist. So we’ll have to settle for brainless losers.

  6. Mark Swiderski says:

    Who knew there was a significant overlap between crowd members in the pit at Woodstock ’99 and Jets fans?

    The weird thing is, the only difference between these guys and the “I should be free to cyber-harass Alison Stokke” crowd is that the latter are just too chickenshit to do it in the flesh.

  7. Rog says:

    Alex, you say there is ‘no mob attacking her, they just move on…’ but do you understand there is a psychological and emotional component? They might not be pushing her down or grabbing her as, but the type of fear that predatory, bullying behavior manifests in its victims is damaging nonetheless. I know that you probably didn’t understand most of the words that I used in this post, so you might want to print out this page and have your mom (or sister) read it to you and explain the big words. BTW, you voter Bush/Cheney, right? Good job, douchebag.

  8. Michael says:

    ALEX SHOW ME YOUR FUCKING TITS C’MON SHOW ‘EM TO ME YOU FUCKING BITCH AAAAAARRRRGGGGHHHHHH YYEEEEEAAAAHHHH WHHHHOOOOOO GO JETS!!!1111!!!!!

  9. Lego says:

    Rog,

    Alex’s presumed Bush/Cheney vote didn’t matter much since (assuming he’s from New York/New Jersey) his home state was carried easily by the Democratic candidate.

    Maybe if he were a Jags season ticket holder you’d have something.

  10. Pulp says:

    Alex is on the cutting edge of slut shaming here. Isn’t it odd that there never seem to be any places where men specifically should steer clear of…

  11. It doesnt bother me your right that my sister cant walk there its life theres certain blocks in certain areas where men cant walk where you wouldnt walk you “guys” are just simply making a big deal out of nothing if any of you have witnessed this you would know it is no big deal

  12. “psychological and emotional component?” come on man you def dont get any ass

  13. oh yeah rog im a democrat you douche bag

  14. Oh yeah by the way David roth have you ever been to giants stadium? if you have you would know that the ramps are not on the way to anything but the exit and if you go out there you r either smoking a cigg or leaving so its not like my sister has to walk past there all the time all of you queers who are responding to me like this have some serious issues maybe you werent hugged as a kid maybe you are just mad because you bite the pillow and anybody who thinks this is a “travisty” or a “horrible incident” is mad cuz they have never kissed a girl

  15. GC says:

    The real travesty might be your inability to use your computer’s spellcheck. But I disgress.

    I’ve kissed a couple of girls — cigarette smokers, too! I was even hugged as a kid a handful of times (once, I believe, by my parents). But in spite of such a solid psychological profile (ahem), I am having great difficulty following Mr. Benesowitz’ line of reasoning.

    ie. dudes who eschew the football on Sunday afternoon to yell at women are “men”. Those who find such behavior pathetic, “bite the pillow”.

    I realize the interweb is a safe haven for this kind of jr. high casual homophobia, but I suspect you’ve got some serious issues of your own. Like, ‘Why Am I Afraid Of Girls? Magazine’ (apologies to Alan Partridge).

    Seriously folks, unlike Giants Stadium, CSTB is a totally welcoming environment for pillow biters, persons with uteruses, and even fucktards so devoid of original thought, their idea of free expression is hollering “TITS” at women in public.

    All of that said, I don’t think Alex oughta come back until he’s willing to show us his cock.

  16. that comment didnt even make any sense, there is no spell check on comments my deepest apologies for my spelling mistakes i know you think you are so smart bc you use big words, get over yourself and if there was a crowd full of women yelling show me your cock i would willingly

  17. GC says:

    That’s a pretty easy promise to make, Alex, given that it’ll probably never happen. Surely you’re not so dense that you can’t recognize the objectification of lady-bits is way more institutionalized than displays of male genetalia? (apologies for the big words, but you can find a definition for “probably” online).

    Since I’m such a nice guy, you’re being offered a unique opportunity. If being asked to bare breasts is no big deal for women who have the misfortune of attending Jets games (including members of your own family), it shouldn’t bother you one iota that you’re being asked to whip it out — regardless of who might be watching.

    I’m gonna give you one last chance to prove you’re not a hypocrite and a total coward. Either you give CSTB’s hot and bothered readership a full color glance at what you’re packing, or we’ll have to assume that you’re not merely stupid, but gutless to boot.

  18. David Roth says:

    I like the idea of this guy going through that string of comment-responses back there thinking “pwnd, pwnd and pwnd” as he takes the time to individually call us all fagz or whatever. Weak stuff, but definitely also not worth engaging. Good luck with your Knicks, Al!

  19. Rog says:

    But make sure that Alex shows his face in the pic. We want to make sure it’s his cock. In lieu of that, post naked pics of your sister. You are a cowardly sack of shit after all, Alexander.

    Hey, Alex, I’m as hetero as they get but unlike you who has had the disastrous misfortune of being raised in a polluted state where having severe brain damage is actually the norm, I tend to gravitate to a classier form of female companionship. The types of chicks that you’re used to nailing probably smoke meth and have a couple of teeth missing and undoubtably don’t get the feeling that they stepped in shit when they get cat-called by low self-esteem losers like you. Hell, they might even like it because they’re ugly and probably obese. You have to work a little harder to get an attractive, smart, educated woman and that, my small-penised friend, is what you’ll never have. You’ll always have to tack on a photo of Heidi Klum to the back of your future wife’s head while you’re banging her in order to squirt out your 1.5cc’s of spunk into her cavernous and well-tread vagina because she will be an uneducated lowlife like you. That’s the type of girl dad married, isn’t it? While you’re getting your puny rocks off calling everybody on here a homo or a loser or an uptight upstanding citizen you fail to see the irony that most of us are getting USDA prime woman night after night while you click through the pics on your C Drive depicting naked boobies. I almost feel sorry for you, little guy.

  20. GC says:

    i’m not sure which is more disturbing — the notion that google searches for “USDA Prime Women” (?) will include this blog, or that Alex might have exhibited just enough social conscience to get hired by James Dolan. Team President Benesowitz, anyone?

  21. This blog sucks I’m mad that I said this and gave you all these hits. If you want to read a real blog that is not polluted by retards who think they know it all and insult anybody who has a different opinion go to http://www.mvn.com/nba-knicks

  22. GC says:

    yes, by all means, check out an aggressively lousy Knicks blog where the new editor has so much respect for differing opinions, he removes critical comments that point out his borderline illiteracy. Nice work, MVN! In the space of two days, your new hire has a) come out in favor of harassing legit print media and b) runs his own unreadable blog with all the panache of ‘tard Tass.

    Thanks for the traffic, Alex. And please, have an awesome time at Disneyland.

  23. Rog says:

    All interview inquiries, advertising inquiries, comments, suggestions and complaints should be addressed to Evan Brunell, President of MVN. He can be reached at evan@mvn.com.

    I almost felt mean enough to send Mr. Brunell a linky link to this comments section, but then actually felt bad about it. Letting this illiterate loser continue to write that awful Knicks blog kinda makes sense since he does represent that genetic cesspool of a team almost perfectly.

  24. GC says:

    if the combined forces of James Dolan, Steve Mills, Isiah Thomas , Jerome James and Stephon Marbury couldn’t stop me from rooting for the Knicks (and lord knows, they’ve all done their best), it’s gonna take much more than Alex Benesowitz. And with that in mind, I think it’s fair to say Alex isn’t representing “that genetic cesspool of a team” nearly as much as he’s offering his own carefully considered analysis.

    If MVN have no problem with this putz representing them, neither do I. But I look forward to being schooled on how to publish a “real” blog.

  25. Jon says:

    GC,

    I don’t know what you’re talking about. There are differing opinions on Father Knickerbocker, and the last comment on the site even comes from “Chris” who says “Alex, you write like a grade school dropout.”

    I am not aware of removing comments, but if you have any further inquiries or concerns regarding Alex and the Knicks site, feel free to send them my way. We are working to address those concerns. Thank you for your attention and assistance.

    Attempting to “stop the bleeding”,

    Jon Burkett
    Director of Basketball Operations

  26. GC says:

    I have no concerns regarding Father Knickerbocker, Jon. But you might wanna buy Alex a dictionary.

    A similar, longer comment magically disappeared between last night and today. (feel like weighing in, “Chris”?). Apparently the protection of free speech extends to those who chant at women in public, but not to those who point out Alex’s shortcomings.

  27. Michael says:

    I am not “Chris” but I will weigh in as having left a comment about English possibly being Alex’s second or third language considering all of the misused commas, but it also was deleted shortly after I posted. I just assumed he accidentally deleted it in between bouts with all the hot “ass” he is apparently getting. Who knew blogging about the Knicks was such an aphrodisiac for the lovely ladies of NJ?

  28. GC says:

    Jon,

    hopefully Michael’s remarks have proven illuminating. In the meantime, it seems as though the comment, “Alex, you write like a high school dropout” (insulting, I’m sure you’ll agree, to America’s elementary school grads) by MVN reader “Chris” has also been removed.

    Again, how you guys choose to operate your blog is of little concern to me. But there is something highly ironic about the way your colleague finds catcalling at women defensible, but takes deliberate steps to censor criticism of his own dubious journalism. You may not be “aware of removing comments”, but it appears as though that’s standard practice for your company. Whether that speaks to the integrity of the entire operation or just one sap’s poor judgement is something I’ll let your readers and advertisers decide for themselves.

  29. Rog says:

    To be fair, a LOT of bloggers delete comments that are unfavorable and I guess that’s pretty common practice (especially on the big corporate sites) but the problem that I have is the unbelievable irony of him coming here to post some pretty homophobic, agressive, mysoginistic posts and then deleting posts on his own blog that merely point out that he has a small IQ and that his writing sucks.

    BTW, LONGEST COMMENTS THREAD EVER!!! Let’s keep it going!

  30. GC says:

    “To be fair, a LOT of bloggers delete comments that are unfavorable”

    indeed, about 90% of Rog’s CSTB comments never see the light of day.

    I really don’t care if someone from an irrelevant blog practices censorship. But his colleague just looks like a dope pleading ignorance.

    “LONGEST COMMENTS THREAD EVER!!!”

    Fans of Greg Lloyd Jr. and Huckapoo beg to differ.

  31. pam says:

    If anyone thinks that this is “harmless” behavior, they need to grow up, get some decency and maybe even a life.

    What has this world come to and how low can we go?

  32. R Williams says:

    Hey GC

    You dont like Tits?
    You must be gay to write something like this

    This tradition that has been taken away from us will come back in a bigger and better form- Look out!! T-I-T-S tits tits tits
