They lit it up to celebrate the Jets losing their last 6 games thus moving them way up in the draft so they can get another QB bust.

I wouldn't call a a rogers a bust.

Did they lose a bet or something? Is the owner of the building an Eagles fan? I don't get it.

Probably did it for something else but the timing was bad?

It switched to Chiefs colors after they won so it was probably some promotion tied in with the NFL.

I'm sure the Empire State Building staff were hoping the 49ers and Chiefs would win so they wouldn't have to bother changing the colors.

no, they tweeted it as a show of respect for the eagles winning.
After the 2nd game, they switched the colors to the Chiefs for winning....

then they made fun if people complaining about it.

They put them in and have been dying to turn them on. So they made up a reason.

So, are the Empire State Building staff actually physically changing lightbulbs from green to red?

I like to think so just because its a funny image.

But since they're LED lights, its probably done via a computer.

I thought he was busted at this point and thats why he might go to the Jets.

Eh, I always liked the Chrysler building better anyway.

They did it for Kansas City too. But still seems stupid to be doing it for things that are specific to other cities. Nationwide or NYC only.

Bovine Diarrhea Virus: It's a f*cking football team.  If this enrages you, seek help.  Maybe it's time to stop hating other people because they cheer for a different sports team.

I'm not seeing anyone enraged over this.

Speaking of the Eagles, this came across my timeline on FB and made me laugh.

Until I read the article I was wondering what the hell subby was on about , I just forgot the Jets existed
 
2023-01-30 2:41:46 PM  
It's not like the building is in New Jersey, so why all the fuss?

This is an attention whoring move by ESB more than anything. New York sees itself as the most important place, at the center of the world, so it absolutely must commemorate every event around the world lest no one else would.

News flash, New York: other cities have skyscrapers and LED lights and are capable of commemorating their own sports teams accomplishments.

You haven't been paying attention then.

Anyway, the ESB routinely changes their lights around to symbolize some big story/holiday/whatever. The only thing rarer than lights for a non-NY team is lights for sportsball in general. People are just complaining because it's the Eagles.

sirrerun: New York sees itself as the most important place, at the center of the world, so it absolutely must commemorate every event around the world lest no one else would.


Or it's just honoring some event like places all over the world do. 99% of their lights should be non-controversial. But, you know, people need to be pissed about something.
