Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers: New York Jets' Crowd 'Didn't Show Up'; NYC Must Be A Bad Sports Town

"It wasn't that wild to be honest with you," Rodgers told Jay Glazer on FOXSports.com's After Party show.

"Fans, a lot of them didn't show up until the second quarter," Rodgers said. "And it wasn't as loud as I expected. All of us were very surprised, a 5-1 team, as well as they were playing, it wasn't a louder stadium."

New York City is therefore a terrible pro football town*, as an out-of-context interpretation of this nuance-free anecdote by an individual with a sense of humor proves, but at least it's a very good playoff baseball college football pro hockey pro basketball town, based on New York Knicks attendance figures.  ↵↵It's a shame the Big Apple, a transient city with a ton of things to do besides sporting events, can't do a better job of supporting its pro teams. At least show up on time -- it's not like you guys were stuck in traffic.
