Mark Sanchez Receives Violent Tweets, Responds


It clearly is not easy being Mark Sanchez.

We all know that most of the fan base wants Mark Sanchez on the bench, and/or off the team. That’s fine, everyone is entitled to their opinion. But Mark should not have to go through the assaults he has received via Twitter.

Mark received a couple of ill wishes via Twitter, and he responded. Take a look:

 

 

How many ways, in how many languages can I say how disgusting this is? Not enough ways. To wish him to get hurt, and even die? Are you kidding?

I get embarrassed when I read things like this. Kudos to Mark for simple, quick response. People that send tweets like that are the people who give our fan base a bad name. I know that isn’t a majority.

But that doesn’t make it any less vile.

    Wishing someone injury or harm is just inexcusable. I was actually on a reality TV show and received many tweets, emails and FB messages of how I sucked and they wished I would crack my head open. It was pretty crazy because I’m a family guy who does a lot of community events and local charities. Good to see Sanchez stay classy and not attack back at these D-bags it’s not always easy.

    • TheJetPress

      It’s all crazy. You are absolutely right. Great ways to respond that Sanchez employed, not responding in the same classless manner. People sometimes forget that this is a game, and think that we own them, therefore, can say what we want. WRONG.
      Can I ask what show you were on?

      • Bennny K

        I was on Hell’s Kitchen. Crazy thing is people hated me and they never spent a penny of a game or jersey of mine. I have two Sanchez jerseys and I have no hate for him, I just don’t want him to be our starting QB.

        • TheJetPress

          I can understand that feeling about Mark.
          Which Hell’s Kitchen season were you? I love that show and have watched every season.

          • Bennny K

            I was on season 7 or 8 with Blue Jay from Boston.

          • TheJetPress

            Oh my god…I remember you. No offense, I didn’t figure you as a football fan, based on the personality on screen. But I am honored you have chosen us to read…..and that if you are a football fan you have chosen the right team.
            This is really cool to meet you, not being patronizing I am being honest. What are you doing with yourself since the show?
            I have one question I must ask you about the show. Towards the end, where you skipped prep because of a back problem, and almost quit, they made it seem on the show like you might have been faking to get some rest…were you? Or were you honestly in pain? I have wondered since it aired…

          • Bennny K

            Thanks, I feel like you guys provide the most informative articles while having journalistic integrity instead of just bashing the Jets or being total homers.
            I actually had back spasms for the last three weeks of the show but they didn’t air that because it didn’t create the story they were trying to tell. The show is edited for entertainment sake kind of like the coverage of the Jets’ “circus”. Some things are aired out of order or sometimes they add voice overs to scenes to make them more interesting.

          • TheJetPress

            Thanks Benny, appreciate that…
            Three weeks? Very interesting….I figured they take license, but that’s a lot. Did you know they were going to portray you that way?
            Just one more comment before I go back to talking football…you were mean to Siobhan. She wasn’t that bad…lol

          • Bennny K

            They tell you they can portray you in anyway they want when you sign up. Ahh Siobhan, she had a big mouth for a bad cook. With her I just did my best Bart Scott impression. Also I like to lay it on thick sometimes and she just happen to be in the way.

          • TheJetPress

            so you wanted to tell her you “Can’t Wait!” for her to be gone huh? I have to give it to you a bit, that sandwich she made with tuna and fruit was very strange.
            I’ll drop your past now and strictly talk football now. Glad to have you here, keep reading, hope all is well with your family.

          • Bennny K

            Since the show I’ve been a chef in Boston at a three star restaurant and I am now the Chef at a four diamond property in NH. I’ve also worked for the Jets, done lots of media appearances, been featured in NY Times & Boston Globe and worked with local charities. The show was tough but the outcome and exposure has been great.

          • TheJetPress

            Nice..especially working for the team which is something I want some day

  • Paul Newbold

    Just more foul behavior by NFL fans! Disgusting!! The environment in the NFL is horrendous! Players are out of control and the fan base of many teams are as well. If things keep going in this direction, they will soon be building moats around the playing fields as is done at many soccer fields around the world. Fan violence is not a new thing in the world of sports, but it is becoming a major problem in the NFL. Its no longer a sport…its a business, and the business stinks from this type of stuff!! I remember the days when you took your kids to Shea, players were gentleman, and treated the kids like they were special. Autographs were free and readily available….I have an autographed practice ball given to me as a boy, it was handed to me by a player as he left the stadium! The fans and the NFL share the blame for the horrendous conduct that has become the norm around the league. These are sad days in the world of sports. I am not a Sanchez fan, but no human being deserves this! From this loyal Jet fan, you have my apologies Mark!

    • TheJetPress

      I remember those days too Paul. The days of civility. Memories. Totally agree with you. If you don’t want Mark to play that’s one thing, but he can live.

      • Paul Newbold

        Just for your information. I can’t seem to load your post about “what to look for in the detroit game”. It goes to page, says “we fumbled that one”. Not sure if it was my computer or on your end.

        • TheJetPress

          Heard that was happening to some, Paul. The writer, Craig, retweeted a better link, or just come click on it on the page here directly.. Sorry about that.

    • Bennny K

      I agree it’s kinda sad. The NFL should really take a stand and take back there stadiums. Growing up I was brought to Jet games when I was a little kid like 5-6 and those are memories I wouldn’t trade for the world. I have two little girls who watch every game with me during the season and are always asking to go see it live but I’m hesitant because I know how nasty it can get. It’s not really a place for kids which is sad in itself. I’ve actually met with NY Jets officials who are trying to create a better environment and safe for everyone even families. My girls will be going to the Preseason game against Jaguars because there are less jerks during those games.

      • Dustin Schrank

        I believe the argument would be…you wouldn’t take your girls to a bar with you and expect everyone in the bar to use good manners would you? at football games there is alot of tailgating and drinking, I never associated this with family events, the players curse, the coaches curse, the refs curse and yes the fans curse…..maybe they should make a family section with no drinking allowed, because drinking and cursesing is a tradition at football gamesand if you don’t believe me look at coverage from any superbowl, I can remember the Ice bowl where a guy gives a toast to the camera with a full bottle of Jack in hand, how is that a family enviroment? I wouldn’t go to a biker ralley with my infant and expect no one to start thier way too loud bike because I have my kid.

        • Bennny K

          That’s just silly, comparing the game to a bar or a bike rally. Being drunk, rude and disrespectful is not a right of a football game. Fortunately the Jets brass don’t share your values nor do I.

          • TheJetPress

            I have to side with Benny on this one…sorry Dustin. It does happen a lot at the games, but that doesn’t make it right in my opinion.

  • Kevin S

    stop being so sensitive. Sanchez needs to go! Hes the one wearing little fag headbands and making our franchise look like a complete joke. I guarantee he doesnt give a shit and just wants off the team too! Not to mention his little youtube videos, hes a bitch and needs to get out of NY

    • TheJetPress

      Maybe he does want out but nobody deserves to be spoken to like he was in the above tweets.
