    NY Jets furlough some employees, but not players

    www.blogcdn.com/www.walletpop.com/blog/media/2009/03/ny_jets.jpg" border="1" alt="" hspace="4" vspace="4" align="right" />The New York Jets football team is furloughing 60 employees on its business side for two weeks without pay.

    Team officials told the New York Timesthat the June furloughs would prevent layoffs.

    The furloughs will be in sales, marketing, public relations, finance, community relations, stadium and ticket operations, and general administration.

    Notice one area missing from that list of jobs? Where are the players? With theaverage Jets player earning $750,000 last year, the team could save a lot of money by having each player take a week off from work.

    Last year the Jets were 28th out of 32 NFL teams in average salaries for its players, so I guess the team is already saving money by not paying its players much. The average Tampa Bay Buccaneers player earned $1,424,054 last year, putting the Bucs at the top of the list.

    Matthew Higgins, the Jets' executive vice president for business operations, said the team isn't in a financial crisis yet, but is preparing for the future.

    "We've assembled a great deal of talent, and we're at the crossroads of building our new stadium, so we don't want to be shortsighted," Higgins told the Times. "To let people go and then rebuild the team didn't make sense. It was important to keep as many jobs as possible."

    Tell that to the guy selling tickets who will be going without pay for two weeks. Maybe a few Jets linemen can stop by the office and help out those weeks.

    [Quote]Tough Times out there Honda!Two weeks is better then 2 years without pay!

    Now lets get back to the where abouts of Tom'The Boy Wonder"Brady shall we?

    That is the subject in another thread, one more than likely fated to the quick death those types of thread usually have. In this thread, the subject is the worst football fanchise in the history of the NFL and the fact it is preparing for another sub .500 season by angering the employees they are counting on to make the sub .500 season run smoothly off the field . Please stay on topic, thanks.
