Joe Benigno blasts Jets home field atmosphere at MetLife Stadium: 'I'd rather go to a road game'


Joe Benigno was at the Jets game last weekend, and it’s safe to say he didn’t have a great time.

No, it wasn’t just because Gang Green yet again failed to solve the Patriots, even in the post-Tom Brady era.

Joe ripped the home atmosphere for the Jets during his Saturday morning show, missing the old Giants Stadium as a better environment for Gang Green, which still doesn’t have a stadium to call its own.

“Going to the game just reminded me again why I hate going to these games,” Joe said. “MetLife Stadium is a complete disaster. It stinks. Give me the old Giants Stadium every day of the week as opposed to this crummy place.

“No matter how green they try to make it with the Ring of Honor and all that, it’s the Giants’ stadium. But it’s not as good as the old Giants Stadium.
But it’s still their place. The Jets still don’t have their own place.”

Joe didn’t have to look very far from his seat to find something to be angry about.

“The amount of Patriots that were in the building last week makes me want to vomit,” Joe said. “I had four Patriot fans sitting in front of me. I wanted to cry. Maybe 35-40 percent of the building was Patriots fans. Disgusting.
This team has no home field advantage. Is it any surprise that they are 4-0 on the road and 3-1 at home? There’s no home field advantage there.

“The amount of people that go to these games and don’t give a you-know-what about the game. The game’s going on, there are critical points in the game, they’re waling around, getting a beer, getting a hot dog, going to the bathroom, it’s unbelievable.”

Joe loves his Jets, but don’t expect him at many more home games from here on out.

“This is why I hate going to these games,” Joe said. “I’d rather go to a road game. At least I know that if I go to a road game, whatever Jet fans are there are real Jet fans, because they’re traveling to go see their team.”
