    And not to nitpick but it was a cheeseburger and not a hamburger. I actually picked up Ross glasses for him after the burger knocked them off.
    How did Ross respond to the burger thrown? Did he laugh it off, expectant of the hostility and rivalry w/ the jet crowd?

    I thought he was really upset at first but once he got his glasses back he was totally cool with it and just kept posing for pictures and signing of autographs. He was just worried about his glasses. No f***s given in regards to the burger.

    Verry cool and more fuel for the rivalry perhaps. Hey thanks for sharing the story, it sounded like you all had a blast, congrats.

He never really, or at least not yet, played hardball with money and he doesn't get involved with football operations or make himself the face of the franchise. He goes to the locker room to be with the team after the game, and he's been sitting in the war room during the draft to learn how things work.

    I haven't been and deservingly so, he has made several stupid statements/decisions along the way, but whom am I to hold final judgement? Everyone has a chance to redeem themselves.

    Me too. Ive always thought he was sincere and showed integrity. He made some rookie owner mistakes, and he's not a great public speaker, but he has made the right moves and never caved into fans stupid demands.
