NFT: "Jints Central"

kennyd : 8/10/2019 5:33 pm
Does this phrase annoy the shit out of everyone like it does me? Not sure why but I want to punch my computer screen every time I see it. Maybe it's just me.

It doesn't offend people. It annoys people and yet you still do it knowing that.


Who? The Maras, Tisches, Gettlemans?

This thread has actually been worthwile, for those who have limited history about the Giants, to get insights from others who actually understand the term. And what it means.

I sort of see it like the Eagles being called the Iggles.

Itís for the sole reason to mock Mara and DG and anyone who supports them. Itís so obvious and the denial is more pathetic than actually using the phrase.


What denial?

here we go again.

Jints Central was a common phrase used in the Daily News in the early '90s - I forget the exact writers/reporters - to obviously reference the Giants decisions makers - GM, Owners, etc.

I found it catchy and harmless. Frankly, I have no idea why anyone would get so irritated by it.


Denial.

Pretty sure it dates back to well before they moved to the meadowlands and come from the NYer accent pronouncing Giants.

But we are the stupid ones.

Is just one more example of fans believing their perception of things are actually factual.

I donít take too seriously any opinion of people who when expressing themselves on a given topic it becomes obvious that they don t know what they donít know.

You should just ignore and or dismiss their perception on this topic rather than waste energy getting worked up about it.

Not much interaction transpires on this board that s worth getting upset about. It s just a football forum

Itís the intent behind it. BW has been here, like me, for decades. Heís one of the long standing contributors here. I usually disagree with his perspective, but his usage of Jints Central has a specific intent. And heís been consistent for decades with it. To deny the intent is being disingenuous.

Except when we were winning of course...

The intent is to mock the team and the decisions they make. Pretty sad if you ask me.

He is, he definitely is. Again, I do t give a shit, would be nice if heís honest about it though. Itís no different than the ďLudditeĒ garbage that is ever so popular when the Giants arenít winning.

I didnít hear either term much when we were in the playoffs and winning Super Bowls. Again, just admit it and move on.

Of course he can. But like Iíve said 3 or 4 times now he does it to posters who agree with any move the Giants make that he doesnít agree with.

Not a big deal, just stating the obvious. Donít be such a luddite.

I've never seen him use it in that context. Although I'm not sure what's the point of the distinction. I'm sure he will freely admit that he disagrees with and sometimes pokes fun at other posters.

He most certainly does. You will notice the EFC moniker when referring to them (Eli Fan Club).

If people canít see he is doing to troll the site and make fun of the Giants, then I donít know what to tell you. Itís as clear as day.

I like a good debate, seeing all sides to the argument and some friendly banter. I think BW add to this site more than some 100% positive poster who don't bother to think for themselves. Nothing against those guys, it's probably the best way to root on a team, but it doesn't add much to an online discussion forum.
