CFL team...i don't know how you guysrecall as far back as you do..i can't remember last week.. </p>

Gots to be McConkey. He was the Leon Bright antithesis... but, McConk was a smart player... didn't take unnecessary risks... which also made Tuna happy.</P>

We used to go see the players enter the Stadium on gamedays. We couldnt wait for Brad Van Pelt, he always made himself available to fans, signing autographs and answering questions. Brad was always a class act both on and off the field.</P>

you know who was like that?
Andy Robustelli.

One day after a game at Yankee stadium I guess around 62 or 63 we all went on the field like everyone would do in those days.
I guess my dad and uncle got to talking to Robustelli and they asked if he would take a picture with me so Andy picked me up and sat me on his left shoulder.
I have no memory of it but I do remember having the picture and hearing the story at every Thanksgiving and Christmas after.
unfortunately over the years and lots of moves the picture has been lost or deeply misplaced for I have not seen it in years and years.
Andy is a kind soul

Nice story...too bad you don't have the pics. Like when my grandfather gave me a ball autographed by all the '52 or '53 Dodgers, when I was 6-7. All my heroes were on that ball. When I was 10 - 11, we needed a ball for our sandlot games. We used it until the jacket was ripping off.</P>


My aunt knew Robustelli and always said he was a real nice man. In '58 - '60 she was good friends with the NYG Offensive line... had 6-8 of them over every Monday after a game for big stew dinners. Frank Youso had them chip in for a handmade wool Blue Blanket with the Old Yankee Stadium Logowith theQuarter Back over topin the center in red and white. I'm going to take a pic of it and use it in my sig, someday when I figure out how to do it. I could use it for my avatar, too. Right now I'm using a drawing my grand daughter drew.</P>


Now that Plax is back, we can concentrate on moving forward.</P>


An easy one, now that I mentioned a wide receiver...</P>


Who gets an assist for touching the ball before a Simms to McConkey TD in SB XX1?</P>


This question should require 1 second of thinking. I'll have to think of a tougher one soon.</P>

Those are some great stories gang. When my father got season tickets in 1963 he took meto the Giants luncheon they have before the season starts every year. We able to walk along the long table that the players sit at and I got the autographs of every body on the team starting form the lowest uniformnumber to the highest. Just some ofthe names Title , Gifford ,Patton , Lynch , Webster and so on. I was meeting the Gods of football. I think that paper is somewhere stowed away [maybe attic]but I have not seen it in years. Also had my picture taken being flanked by YA and Gifford which was printed in the local paper. I was Mr. Popular in grade school for a few days LOL. Gotta find that picture , may have go to the archives of the local paper.</P>


Getting back to the thread , Name the Denver BroncosRunning back Gary Reasons Pulverized on the infamous 4 and inches from the goal line? Dec. 1989</P>


It was McConkey with most fair catches waving that hand over his head. He rarely muffed any though</P>


Was Tom Landry the player drafted for one position and played another , then went on to HC?</P>


for you knowwho?</P>

Those are some great stories gang. When my father got season tickets in 1963 he took meto the Giants luncheon they have before the season starts every year. We able to walk along the long table that the players sit at and I got the autographs of every body on the team starting form the lowest uniformnumber to the highest. Just some ofthe names Title , Gifford ,Patton , Lynch , Webster and so on. I was meeting the Gods of football. I think that paper is somewhere stowed away [maybe attic]but I have not seen it in years. Also had my picture taken being flanked by YA and Gifford which was printed in the local paper. I was Mr. Popular in grade school for a few days LOL. Gotta find that picture , may have go to the archives of the local paper.</P>


Getting back to the thread , Name the Denver BroncosRunning back Gary Reasons Pulverized on the infamous 4 and inches from the goal line? Dec. 1989</P>


It was McConkey with most fair catches waving that hand over his head. He rarely muffed any though</P>


Was Tom Landry the player drafted for one position and played another , then went on to HC?</P>


for you knowwho?</P>


</P>




wow good one....Landry

great story about the luncheon.
those were day days werent they?


that would be Bobby Humphrey my friend.
he was a rookie.

I loved Gary Reasons

</P>


Good story, SEC. Those were the days they all would give you an autograph and not expect dollars in return. Find that pic someday and post it here as a sig.</P>


Yeah, I liked Reasons, too. He fit perfect with Carson, LT, and Banks, and never seemed bothered that they all had bigger reps than him... sorta like Kelly, before Reasons, whotook back seat to Van Pelt, Carson, and then LT. Kelly, like Reasons, played with heart.</P>


Tom Landry was also a good guess. It had to be him or Nolan... </P>

I got lucky, because of another thread on the 1990 team.I read a article about the 90 championship game wheretheymade mention of him and what the game meant to him. I have been watching the giants for as long as I can remember but my memory is no where as good as you guys. Reading this thread brings things back lol sucks to get old. anyway good stuff.</P>

McFadden? I totally forgot him. I know Allegre was around then, and would have picked him. Did he get injured, and so we got McFadden? That loss was brutal, and hurt more because I think they beat us as the home team in our house.</P>


I looked up Nolan. Hard to piece together but he was a QB At White Plains High, and went to Maryland where they won the Nat'l Championship in '53... it doesn't specify, but I think he played QB at Maryland. He was drafted 4th rnd in '54, andwas converted tosafety for us.</P>

It is funny... how much I have forgotten, yet Emlin's Gremlins popped into my brain. You saying, "...his guys," was the tipoff. As soon as i thought Emlin...

Name the player with the most fair catches on punt returns in Giant history?</P>


[ yup it was Morral to Homer Jones 98 yard TD] Nice callZ and YA</P>


</P>


and the answer is?</P>


</P>


Just cuz he did it the longest I can remember, Meggett</P>


</P>


Very close Jints10.........just a little before Megget</P>


Side note: Sorry about Brad Van Pelt.......never got to tell you that and I knowhe was your favorite</P>


Great Giant my friend</P>


</P>


With your hint, I have to agree with Zim and Y.A., McConkey</P>


We used to go see the players enter the Stadium on gamedays. We couldnt wait for Brad Van Pelt, he always made himself available to fans, signing autographs and answering questions. Brad was always a class act both on and off the field.</P>


</P>


</P>



you know who was like that?
Andy Robustelli.

One day after a game at Yankee stadium I guess around 62 or 63 we all went on the field like everyone would do in those days.
I guess my dad and uncle got to talking to Robustelli and they asked if he would take a picture with me so Andy picked me up and sat me on his left shoulder.
I have no memory of it but I do remember having the picture and hearing the story at every Thanksgiving and Christmas after.
unfortunately over the years and lots of moves the picture has been lost or deeply misplaced for I have not seen it in years and years.
Andy is a kind soul
</P>


Nice story...too bad you don't have the pics. Like when my grandfather gave me a ball autographed by all the '52 or '53 Dodgers, when I was 6-7. All my heroes were on that ball. When I was 10 - 11, we needed a ball for our sandlot games. We used it until the jacket was ripping off.</P>


My aunt knew Robustelli and always said he was a real nice man. In '58 - '60 she was good friends with the NYG Offensive line... had 6-8 of them over every Monday after a game for big stew dinners. Frank Youso had them chip in for a handmade wool Blue Blanket with the Old Yankee Stadium Logowith theQuarter Back over topin the center in red and white. I'm going to take a pic of it and use it in my sig, someday when I figure out how to do it. I could use it for my avatar, too. Right now I'm using a drawing my grand daughter drew.</P>


Now that Plax is back, we can concentrate on moving forward.</P>


An easy one, now that I mentioned a wide receiver...</P>


Who gets an assist for touching the ball before a Simms to McConkey TD in SB XX1?</P>


This question should require 1 second of thinking. I'll have to think of a tougher one soon.</P>


My aunt knew Rob</P>


</P>


Bavaro</P>


What Giant was drafted to play offense, became a starter on defence for the Giants,and later became a Head Coach but not for the Giants.</P>

Sorry guys Landry is not the answer. This one is still alive. </P>

During a game against the rival Browns thousands of fans overran the Browns bench and forced Paul Brown to pull his team off the field.
the game was almost forfeited to the Brown but the police eventually gathered order and the final 2 min were played.
from that day on no field seats were sold at Yankee Stadium.

In 1963 what defensive player got in a fist fight (that had been brewing all game) with Jim Brown that got them both ejected?

for those of you who dont remember, Jim Brown was not know as a quick tempered fighting guy.
he would say "nice tackle" very calmly and pat you on the helmet after you hit him with everything you had. his calmness infuriated players.

During a game against the rival Browns thousands of fans overran the Browns bench and forced Paul Brown to pull his team off the field.
the game was almost forfeited to the Brown but the police eventually gathered order and the final 2 min were played.
from that day on no field seats were sold at Yankee Stadium.

In 1963 what defensive player got in a fist fight (that had been brewing all game) with Jim Brown that got them both ejected?

for those of you who dont remember, Jim Brown was not know as a quick tempered fighting guy.
he would say "nice tackle" very calmly and pat you on the helmet after you hit him with everything you had. his calmness infuriated players.
</p>


YA Was it Jimmy Patton who got into a fist fight with Jim Brown?</p>


Bookie Bolin is one of our MB posters . The player was an offensiveGuard during the 60s. Name the otherGuard who played with him for many years. He had a "catchy" name also</p>




wasn't Patton

having a hard time understanding your question....

Well then I would have to sayHuff and Brown went at each other</p>


Name the 2 starting guards [OL] from around 62 to67. Greg Larson was the long time center. Name the 2 players on either side of him [in that time frame].....Bookie Bolan was one...who was the other? Hope that makes it clearer</p>

The kid in the back of the classroom raises his hand frantically. "I know. I know, Teacher."</P>


had to be a young Lew Alcindor, who wore Triplett's number 33 to fame and glory.</P>


It ticked me off that Lew went to UCLA from Power Memorial. In the 50's and 60's, the smart coaches, like **** McGuire,from around the country always recruited in the city... but with the publicity that Alcindor garnered, and being wooed away to california, it opened the floodgates for stealing all our good city kids. NYU eventually dropped BBall, and teams like St. John's and Manhattan, and CCNY, and Fordham were suddenly getting less of the talent. You's think NY City could field a national contender in college BBall? Not after Lew, Kareem, left.</P>

Name the Offensive Coordinator fired the day after "the fumble"</P>

zimonami

IU'm going to agree with SEC on the Conerly answer. He was an excellent athlete and cam from an era when more guys did double duty in high school and college, so I can imagine Conerly having some punting experience.</P>


I went back to the 1986 archives. I can't say it is a fact, but that whole year Rutledge had 1 pass completion in 3 attempts, and it was for a TD. Harry Carsom, on the other hand,is credited withone pass reception, for 1 TD... so, I think my memory was right for that. I can remember Carson running for the TD and he had the biggest grin when he scored.</P>


I can also remember that our OC was fired the day after the Fumble, but I can't remember who it was.</P>

Geez, YA. Now that you mentioned that, the memory comes back to me, too. My gut tells me you're right, and I can almost see the hit.

Once he got his body moving in one direction, he wasn't Mr. Nimble toes to change his momentum, as Montana could attest...lol. Burt would not have liked this new rule, where you can't hit the QB while you are down... took Jim too long to get back up. He'd crawl after you if he had to. </P>

This is a crazy stumper. Previte was the clubhouse guy at Yankee Stadium who signed Mickey Mantle's name on baseballs. Now, how does that relate to a Giant play? I can't wait to hear this answer.

hahahahahaha...good guess.

Ole Pete asked Harland Svare (who was D coach at the time) why football teams didn't use their fastest guys off the bench in certain situations like baseball teams do.
He said the giants should put the 5 fastest guys out there and someone would get open.
He specifically cited Barnes and Patton.
Svare thought about the threat 5 speedsters would pose to the defense and took it to Allie.

so the Giants spread out Barnes, Patton, Shofner, Rote, and Walton.

Barnes caught a touchdown pass from Tittle the first time they ran it.

Yeah Mickey Walker.

yeah he was an all around kinda guy.
just a football player.
just stick him somewhere and tell him to play football

Im telling you my brain, bookshelves, display cases, and walls are full of this stuff.
mostly my brain though.

i used to study this stuff as a kid.
I was the kid memorizing the back of a bubble gum card cus the guy on it looked tough.
I remember sitting at my grandmothers house and memorizing the back of a Mel Tripplett card.

a lot of my life was dedicated to 2 things
music, and the New York Football Giants.

...anyway...heres another.....

This baby faced guy was drafted to play Center.
he played his rookie season as a Tackle
his second year at Guard
then finally his third year started at Center for many years to come.

My answers? Some are pure memory, but at 62 I do have my problems. Sometimes I know the answer,can see the guys face in my mind,and the name just won't come to me. If I know a name, I can usually remember his number. But, if I have a number I can't always remember the name to go with it. If I have to do some research, I'll tell you. Sometimes it'll take me 1/2 hour or more to find an answer, but I can usually boil it down. Like Mickey Walker... went to the Giant roster for '61 and looked up the alma maters of every player that I thought could be the answer. If he was a name starter, I probably wouldn't have had to check. I couldn't remember his name, sowent through the rosterchecking on any of our guys that didn't ring a bell. LIke Bob Simms, too. They are the tough ones, the unsung bench guys who filled in and did the job</P>


My aunt was a walking encyclopedia on the Giants... truly. She would talk Giants 24/7. She knew all the older guys, pre 1960, when I became interested. She'd tell me all about them.She lived with us for 6 months every year, August toFebruary, starting in '68, so I could drive her to the games and watch the games withher when we weren't playing Home.I am sure, for example, that she was the one who told me about Emlin's Gremlins... although I could have heard it on TV, or read it in the papers. She loved Emlin, Hein, Rote, Conerly,Tittle, Webster... anyone who played their hearts out for her team. She was full of little, personal tidbits about the guys. During the 50's she had the whole offensive line over for dinner on Mondays. I've never known a more knowledgeable, or faithful Giant fan. When I married my wife, her niece, she hated football. Old Aunt Jean and I got her on the right track, so now I am lucky to have a partner that loves the Giants, too. ... R.I.P Aunt Jean.</P>

Aunt Jean sounds like someone I would have loved to be around and ask questions to.

My dad and uncles would always talk about Conerly, Svoboda, I remember the name Agajanian sticking out to me as a kid.
I have vivid memories of hearing my dad and uncle over by the radio swearing up and down cursing out Conerly.

A few more tidbits about aunt Jean... she was a Rockette in the late 30's. While she was a WAC during WWII she had a boyfriend she lived with who drove away with her mobile home and they never caught him. She was so burned that she vowed never to get married, and she didn't.Was assigned to sellWar Bonds outside of the Polo Grounds at Giant games in '42 and, after the people would stop filing in, and she heard all the cheering inside, she figured she'd go in and watch the game. She was hooked and started her season tix the next year. She was going senilearoundthe '87 super bowl victory, but had enough cookies to appreciate the win. That summer, '87, she had a stroke and was really getting bad. One rainy summerSaturday I figured I'd put on the VHS tape of our victory over Denver for her, and I sit her down and start playing the game. She says, "Oh, I didn't know we had a game today. Who's playing?"- "It's the Super Bowl victory, against Denver,Aunt Jean." - "Oh, who are we playing?" - "Denver." - "Oh. Are we playing home or in Denver?" - "Pasadena, Aunt Jean, it's the Super Bowl that we just beat Denver in." Three minutes later we go through the same routine. This went on for the entire game. She didn't have a clue. It was humerous, but very sad. But, she did remember LT, Harry, Bavaro, and Simms, and any time their names were mentioned she would say how great they were. She died the summer before the great '90 season. From 1943 to about the '84 season she never missed a single home game, although every time we had a game at Shea she vowed she would never go back again... hated it there. But, of course we always went back. Before her bad days she could remember everything about every Giant player. She would have had zero problem answering any questions we've had here. She HATED Allie, from day one. Blamed him totally for our downfall and trading away all our good players. It used to be fun getting Christmas cards for her at our house from several of the older guys... Rote, Morrison, Webster, Conerly, and most of the guys on the offensive line. That was her bread and butter... always said a championship team starts with the O line. Tittle would throw a bomb to Homer and she be screaming about the great block that so and so threw. You guys would have loved her.</P>

A few more tidbits about aunt Jean... she was a Rockette in the late 30's. While she was a WAC during WWII she had a boyfriend she lived with who drove away with her mobile home and they never caught him. She was so burned that she vowed never to get married, and she didn't.Was assigned to sellWar Bonds outside of the Polo Grounds at Giant games in '42 and, after the people would stop filing in, and she heard all the cheering inside, she figured she'd go in and watch the game. She was hooked and started her season tix the next year. She was going senilearoundthe '87 super bowl victory, but had enough cookies to appreciate the win. That summer, '87, she had a stroke and was really getting bad. One rainy summerSaturday I figured I'd put on the VHS tape of our victory over Denver for her, and I sit her down and start playing the game. She says, "Oh, I didn't know we had a game today.

just got home...been out on business since last night
this question has me buzzing.....

thats Al Blozis from my home state of NJ
just a few towns away in Garfield.

way before my time but I had that little nugget tucked away in my brain.

been trying to think of who made the tackle on the opening kick off.
can't figure it out.

#32, 2nd Lt. Al Blozis lost his life in France in WWII while searching alone for two missing men from his platoon. Giants retired his number to honor him.</P>


Since I couldn't remember anyone ever wearing #32, first thing I did was go to the Giants retired numbers... bingo.</P>


I'm hoping they do the right thing and also retire Harry's #53 someday. If he's good enough for the HOF, his No.deserves to be retired. Simm's No. is retired, and he hasn't made the hall.</P>

An easy one... Rob Carpenter. One of my favorite players during his years with us. He was a great team guy... ran, blocked and caught passes out of the backfirld. His unforced, open field fumble in the '85-'86 NFC championship game against Chicago was a killer. Would have been a big first down. He was gone to the rams after that and I was always sorry he wasn't there to enjoy our SB victory the next year.</P>

I guess Eli won it Jr and Sr years. I knew it was named after Charlie... had to be. He was always a good ole boy, well known to be from Miss</P>

What "Super Bowl" Giant was drafted in the 2nd round by the Philadelphia Stars?

I think it was Sean Landeta......could be wrong though.

what quarterback literally packed up and walked out on the team when Norm Snead was named the starter in......
I believe it was 1973?


Randy Johnson right?

here's a good one.....it's a two parter

an award for the best college football player in Mississippi was named after a famous Giant

Three of these awards are owned by current members of the G-men


what's the award and who are the giants that own it?

yup Randy Johnson it was.......
ole Norm still had a little left in the tank

This is a tough one. George Martin definitely leads the team, all time,as a defensive lineman with 7-8 TD's, but he was a LE, not tackle. Not too many DT's get TD's. I'd even guess that Robbins may be close to the top... I think he has (2).</P>

RT was taken over by Ron Mikolajczyk. Van Horn had a nice career for us, moving from Guard to Tackle and back to guard again . Some peoples think D. Diehl will end up doing the same, if we can get a primo LT... but, would he then replace Snee or Seubert?</P>

Jints10 beat me to the punch on the answer... Van Horn was our RG, so Enderle had to be LG. I had to look his # up... #62. Looked him up to see who else he played with and discovered that he died last Sept at age 60, in his NY City Apt. RIP. D1ck</P>

I'm on a 1972 kick.........for some reason that season stands out in my mind.....no idea why..

in that year there was a very controversial stolen ball play that occurred while playing the Redskins that went in favor of Washington.
a Giant player caught a pass from Snead turned to run and a Redskin pulled the ball from his hands.

what Giants caught the pass then had it stolen?
and it was stolen by what Redskin?

this can be tough..and I hope I remember the answers correctly...hahahaha

Hahaha... what a ding dong I was... I knew it wasn't a Giant jersey and figured he still wore the number 35. Then again, is 35 even a valid number for a LB? I don't think so. The TOPPS card info was minimal andonly mentioned the Giants, so I figured the number was OK. Duh... I'll go take a nap and come back later.</P>

It was aginst the, then, lowly Cowboys. I can't remember if it was against Dandy Don, or Eddie LeBaron... they pretty much split the QB job back then for the Boys.</P>

I went back and forth from the video to the pic that YA put up... I think there is a definite resemblance... they look fairly close. I'd like to be able to pull them up side-by-side. I was hoping to see if the woman in the vid was as well endowed as the woman in YA's pic, but it's too hard to tell if the chick in the vid has as big a set with that black blouse on. In any case we'll call it a tie.</P>


If the vid was from 1986... sure, there is a tie-in to our great Giant team of '86...lol. It was a very good year. I turned 40 in '86 and can remember thinking,"Wow... 40... I'm old" Sure would be nice to go back in time, and enjoy that '86 season all over again. That team, to me, more than any other (the '90 team was close, and the last 4-5 games of 2007 were close), gave me a feeling in mostevery single game that we were in total control from the opening kick-off to the end. Our line dominated on both sides of the ball, and the D played with an intensity to match LT's. I remember Morris running through some of the biggest holes I have ever seen, before or since.</P>

and oh yea it is Lana Clarkson </P>


Didnt think anyone would mind seeind some Waters</P>




i dont see Roger Waters or Lana Clarkson in that video.
neither of those people rattling off sexual inuendos are Roger Waters nor Lana Clarkson
</P>


You are 1/2 right Waters does not show himself in the vid but it is his LP and he wrote KAOS</P>


Yes it is Lana Clarkson</P>




this is Lana Clarkson in the 80s.....looks nothing like the woman in the vid.
http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/5278/lanaclarkson4.jpg
she was also in ...
Fast times at Ridgemont High
Amazon women on the moon
Barbarian Queen

all films I have seen many times and that is definitley not her in the vid.
her name may be the same but the woman in the youtube vid is not the woman Spector was accused of killing

</P>


I went back and forth from the video to the pic that YA put up... I think there is a definite resemblance... they look fairly close. I'd like to be able to pull them up side-by-side. I was hoping to see if the woman in the vid was as well endowed as the woman in YA's pic, but it's too hard to tell if the chick in the vid has as big a set with that black blouse on. In any case we'll call it a tie.</P>


If the vid was from 1986... sure, there is a tie-in to our great Giant team of '86...lol. It was a very good year. I turned 40 in '86 and can remember thinking,"Wow... 40... I'm old" Sure would be nice to go back in time, and enjoy that '86 season all over again. That team, to me, more than any other (the '90 team was close, and the last 4-5 games of 2007 were close), gave me a feeling in mostevery single game that we were in total control from the opening kick-off to the end. Our line dominated on both sides of the ball, and the D played with an intensity to match LT's. I remember Morris running through some of the biggest holes I have ever seen, before or since.</P>


</P>


I knew I was younger than probably most of you guys at 44 but in my house their were only 3 tickets and I have 4 brothers. 2 are way older than me and 1 younger we used to kid dad that it was the mailman but we all look the same (kinda a family joke ) if I sound weird saying it. Dad moved from the Bronx to Jersey in 57 and couldent quite get the TV right (was always on the roof on Sun) so Mom decided to get Dad tickets for Christmass. My Uncle used to be a barber at Manhattan College and cut Tim Mara"s hair so we had an in. I just found out this year that everyone that sits around me knows Tim Mara in some way.</P>


So we had 3 tickets 4 brothers and a Dad do the math. If you wanted to go to a game in my house you better be able to recite the roster, and not only that but the history. Dad made sure that real fans sat in our seats[;)] Its just me and my younger brother now, Dad is in Fla. still kicking (God Bless) and one brother lives in Cali (never really was a fan) but is married to a woman HAHA. The oldest is a season ticket holder for the Ravens ( yea he is a Giant fan and was disapointed in 2000). Me and my little bro 39 go to the games with a buddy now.</P>


You guys were probably the ones throwing your mony and beer on me at the spirals at halftime. I used to come home with more than $40 each week after buying beer the whole second half ( I was only 15). Tickets were only like $12 then so Dad really didnt mind. I hardly ever sat in the seats but followed the play up and down the sidelines till Revees built the wall in "93"</P>


I kinda wanted to do this andnow seemed like the time. Anybody else?</P>

Damm , you made some good cash running into the pit. Oh that pissed me off when those stupid walls went up. No way you could go the bath room , chat in the spirals and buy another beer in 12 MINUTES!!!

Hey, I graduated from Manhattan College in '68... but, I never went to your uncle, the on-campus barber. When I graduated I moved from NY to Conn, about 25 miles from New Haven/Yale Bowl. It was thatsummer that Aunt Jean took me to my first game... a preseason game at Yale Bowl. Then, she just figured it was easier to live with us during the season. The '73 and '74 seasons at Yale Bowl were a snap for us to get to. I always got a kick out of the men's room urinals... the wall. Everybody would be Mooing, like cattle.</P>


In themid 60's Aunt Jean got 8 more tickets for family and friends in Inwood, wherethey alllived. Their tickets were all in the end-zone when the new stadium opened in '76, so they'd come over to our area and we'd all stand behind my section, close to the 50. We were all pissed when the walls went up, ruining our party every game. It was that kind of congregating, I assume, that made them put those danged walls up. They want the patrons to sit in their assigned seats... oh, boring. There were hundreds of peoples standing behind those railings in those days, and I guess they also didn't want the stadium to look like there were empty seats on TV. I'm curious if they'll have the same rotten obscured set-up in the new stadium. I remember in '78, The Fumble... when the Giants got the ball with about a minute left, we all walked over to stand behind the railing in the end-zone, behind the Giants. We were just waiting for the last play before zipping down the escalator to leave. When Edwards ran that ball in to the end-zone you could hear a pin drop. We were all looking at each other, in stunned disbelief. Not one word was uttered, from there out to our cars. Everbody was in shock, and incredibly fissed-off. That led to the real revolt. It was probably also that '78 season that the plane flew over with the banner about all our bad years of football. I was there, but I can't remember if it said 15 or 20 bad years of football. Anyways, George Young was hired in '79, and I always figured that The Fumble might have been a blessing in disguise.</P>

boy will I miss those spirals.
of all the crazy things ive seen happen on those spirals
what i have seen go down at Jets games was way worse than anything at any Giant game Ive ever been to.
....and let me tell you from 71 on I havent missed many.

a buddy of mine has four Jet seats, and now and again I go with him........to me those Jet fans have been borderline disrespectful to our house.

...all that talk about the spirals and when the walls werent there has me feeling 80s fellas...........

What DB wearing #34 had 6 interceptions in 1985???
