Dolphins vs. Jets

I was catching up on some of the posts that were flying around today when I noticed that somebody named "PhinsR4Phags" was throwing some anti-Dolphin slander around.  It really came as no surprise that the aforementioned was actually a Jets fan.  Fitting.  It got me thinking about the Phins-Jet rivalry.  Why do we hate them so much?  Why do they hate us?

First off, lets talk stats:  1.  Superbowl wins: Phins 2 Jets 1.  2.  Biggest historical accomplishment:  Phins undefeated season, Jets first AFC Superbowl winner.  3.  Face of the franchise:  Phins, Danny Marino, all around good guy.  Jets: Joe Namath, bane of women sideline reporters everywhere.  (see video)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQqIQyT-RuM  3.  Best coach:  Phins Don Shula, Jets: Rich Kotite, Bruce Coslet, the Herminator?  JK, Weeb Ewbank.  4. Head to head record:  Jets lead 46-39-1. 

When you get right down to it, it's fairly close.  The Phins have been the better franchise, but were not talking Pittsburg v. the Browns here. 

What about the intangibles?  1.  The Jets have some jackass in a fireman's helmet that can actually spell, JETS.  Quality.  We have hot Cuban cheerleaders.  2.  I enjoy wearing shorts to January playoff games.  The weather in NY  in January is horrible.  3.  They got Brett and we got CP10.  Nuff said.  4.  New yorkers are all secretly Phins fans anyways.  They vacation down here, they go to Phins games, their parents retire down here.  They really want to be Phins fans, they do, they just can't show it because they are scared that the guy in the fireman's hat will beat them up when they go home.  It's true, a guy named Vito told me. 

So the Dolphins are pulling ahead...

But the most important things are the moments or events that we remember the most.  So I am going to open it up, what is the best moment the Phins have had over the Jets?  or simply why do we hate them so much?  Discuss...
