Jets fail to extort again.

Good for NY lawmakers, who turned down $300 million in state funding for a stadium ostensibly for the 2012 Olympics, but one that owuld also be used by the NY Jets. The Jets have been pushing for a publicly funded stadium for quite some time.

It's about time some lawmakers stood up and stopped this. If the team needs a stadium, let them build one. If it's that big a deal to get the olympics, let someone come up with the money for a stadium voluntarily, instead of forcing the public to pay for it.
