Peter King blast Jets fans

Peter King, in his "MMQB" column, blasted Jets fans for the poor attendence on Saturday night for Brett Favre's debut.

"I think I don't want to hear what great fans the Jets have," wrote King on "Not for a long time. That crowd Saturday night was a disgrace. At least half the stadium was empty for Favre's debut in a Jets' uniform. I expressed my amazement to a few fellow scribes Saturday night -- emphasizing that N.Y. traded for an all-time-great quarterback, not a broken-down one -- and they gave varying reasons for the poor turnout. Like it's the middle of vacation month for New Yorkers, and it's a preseason game. Horsefeathers. If you really love your team, and you have season tickets, you should have been at that game unless you were in Tibet. Ridiculous."
