 The Giants won a "secret" coin toss at the League office on Monday morning to determine who would host the first regular-season game ever at the new Meadowlands stadium and Jets owner Woody Johnson is said to be livid because the team didn't have any representation there. The results of the coin were first reported on the Daily News website. The Jets badly wanted to host the game and taken note of the fact that Giants have played in the season-opener at the old Giants Stadium in 12 of the past 16 seasons. They are tired of being second-class citizens. With the new LT Jets will owned the new stadium. The Jets just keep winning and things will work out. Make the Giants second-class citizens.
