Does the Jets remote have the white stripes and championship stats, etc that they show on the website? I ordered the Bills remote last year and it looked almost identical to the one shown on the website. The shade of blue is a bit darker, but it definitely looks blue.
It looks just like the one on the website except for the color. The two I have definitely look black. If you look at the one on the website you'll see a small Jets stick on label that is green, the same color as the rest of the remote. On mine the label is that green, but the remote is so dark that it looks black.
I just got off the phone with Retention and the CSR I talked to told me that they had never stopped selling the NFL remotes and that they had gotten permission to sell them from the NFL before they started offering them.
He gave me a credit to cover the cost of a new remote and I ordered it. I have little hope of getting one that looks anything like the one on the website, but it's worth a try.
As far as I'm concerned, this is just another example of how difficult it is to be a loyal Jets fan. Nothing ever goes right. Before the season started, I was moaning about the travails of being a Jets fan on a thread and several folks jumped up and told me how well they thought the Jets would do this year and how loaded with talent they are. Now, as I'm sure all of you know, they are poised, once again, to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. And rip another piece of my heart out. Sanchez has a "mild" shoulder injury and, as usual, there really isn't a Plan B.
By the way, I've been a Jets fan since they were the Titans. No joy. We could have had Vick for practically nothing and we end up with Sanchez, who seems doomed to be another QB failure. And no viable replacement for him. They'll probably make the playoffs just to prolong my agony, but the Super Bowl? Nah.
