Biggest Jets story in London: Toilet paper

Call it the Toilet Bowl.

Much of the talk surrounding the first of three regular-season NFL games in London has been hijacked by the news that the New York Jets flew to England with their own toilet paper to replicate the comforts of home.

“You would think it would be fine over here,” said Miami Dolphins rookie running back Jay Ajayi, who was born in Britain but moved to the U.S. as a kid. “For them to do that, that’s pretty interesting.”

The Jets will be playing in London for the first time, which may explain why they are taking so much care to ensure the players feel right at home.

It has certainly become a topic of conversation since both teams arrived in London on Friday.

BGA: Talking ’bout practice

Sunbury-on-Thames, UK — Having endured London’s trademark “severe delays,” my arrival at the Hazelwood Centre (yes, centre, not center – you Americans don’t have a worldwide monopoly on spelling things incorrectly, you know) was met with a resounding “Your name’s not on the list.” Of course it was.

I didn’t pay £122 for my rail ticket to give up without a fight though. Fortunately, I had no need for one, because they pretty much decided to just let me have a media pass anyway, before letting me know five minutes later that I’d been on the list all along – they just didn’t realise (yes, realise, not realize) that there were more names on the other side of the page.

Hopefully, Jets practice would create a more organised (sic) first impression. To read more of this story, click here

London trip is all business for Jets

Big Ben. Buckingham Palace. The Tower of London.

They might all remain unchecked on many New York Jets players’ “must-see” lists.

The team left for London on Thursday night, but this is no European vacation. Coach Todd Bowles wants his Jets players focused on the task at hand – playing the Miami Dolphins on Sunday – and not sightseeing.

“They’ve got enough money, they can make it in the offseason,” Bowles said with a laugh Thursday. “They will be OK, they’ll be all right. They get a little bit of free time, they can do their tour. We’re on a business trip. They want to go back in the offseason, hey, have at it.”
