Move wreaks on old boys club lore down at true north. Jets mediocrity will continue. Chipman is more about keeping people happy than winning.

Still no official word, press release or the almighty Press Conference, announcing our new coach

Hiring Ex-jets...
This and Chipman always seems to hire people whom has a history with him or the Jets. Chevy is never going anywhere plus Zinger Huddy Vincent Flaherty are all classic examples and are only released after super extended terrible play periods.. It is retread central with the Jets. It is not confidence inspiring.

To get, we the fans, a little more amped with the ?Bones? signing, it would be really terrific to hear
names of assistant coaches to gain our early confidence
Heard Arniel?s name mentioned weeks earlier as potential assistant ??. works for me

A totally different franchise/organization.

This isn't some "old boys club" hiring, though.

You?re entitled to your opinion.

There is quite a long history of hiring practices within this organization that indicates otherwise though?

After Barry it did matter who we signed, most fans were not going to be happy.

100% and I freely admit I was going to be disappointed no matter what. But this kind of reeks of either having no viable options that wanted to come here - or just the buddy system.

Such as?

Heisinger, Chevy, Claude Noel, Wade Flaherty, Mark Morrison, Eric Dubois, Drew Macintyre, Jimmy Roy, Mike Keane?.essentially the whole front office staff to be honest.

Now we?re going to hire Bowness, Arniel, and Baumgartner to make up our coaching staff.

Seriously, does that inspire confidence?

At best former fourth line guys or never we?re

I fear the leadership is severely absent.

Career non winners
Sorry, but this does not motivate me to purchase a ticket.

I don't really care if the coach is a 1st. line or 4th. line former player. As long as he can help improve this team.

How are Cheveldayoff, Morrison, or Dubois "old boys club" hires? Also, the majority of those you named are all part of the Moose organization more than anything. Noel hasn't been here for over eight years and his replacement wasn't an "old boys club" hire, either.

Bowness has never been an employee of the Jets 2.0 in any capacity. Furthermore, who would be a better fit here based on Trotz declining and the Bruins getting the jump on Montgomery?

This whole narrative about favoritism seems like a weird hill upon which to die when complaining about Bowness being hired as HC. The valid criticism should be what he brings to the table as a coach, IMO.

Sorry, but this does not motivate me to purchase a ticket.

Then don't.

Been coaching since 1988, and only been in he playoffs 3 times, never won nothing. Nothing else to say. Do you think he?s amasingly going to start winning here?? No, we re not. Gross signing that screams we couldn?t get a real coach
