Concerned fan scolds the wrong Jets for signing Michael Vick

The beauty of Facebook and social media more generally is the voice it lends to people who might otherwise go unheard. Take a fan who is concerned about the morality of the New York Jets signing Michael Vick given his past troubles.

One concerned fan took the time to do just that, searching for the Jets on Facebook and admonishing them for signing Vick. There was just one problem…she scolded the wrong Jets.


As much as anything I am impressed with the person managing the Newcastle Jets social media. This is a nice, measured response that resists the temptation to belittle somebody for doing something so silly. Furthermore, the insight on the Jets isn’t half bad. Good job by that person.

    Thelma. You’re an idiot and a hypocrite. Why don’t you concentrate on your own life instead of pointing out Vick’s past which he has more than paid for. I’m sure that he is a much better human being than you
    are presently or ever will be. Why don’t you go and do your little girl troll job somewhere else and spare everyone your constant negative diatribe.
