J-E-T-S (Just End The Suffering)

"J-E-T-S” is a popular chant of football fans of the New York Jets. When the team is losing, some insist that this stands for “Just End The Suffering.” The backronym “Just End The Suffering” has been cited in print since at least 1996.

Other backronyms of “J-E-T-S” include “Just End The Season” and “Just Exit The Stadium.”

Don’t be silly!  This is a no-brainer and you of all people should
be familiar with those.

You can’t use Just End the Season or Just Eliminate these Suckers because they’re not playing right now and won’t be for a few months. You can’t end a season that hasn’t started yet.

Just End The Suffering isn’t bad at all.  I sure would like it to end.  You can only take so many losing seasons, so I’ll have to pick that one.  That’s a good slogan, jetsuk ol’ buddy.  Thanks.
