08:27 AM ET 03.28 | The media storm that is Tim Tebow traveled east this week, landing squarely in Zach Parise's backyard. [Parise] is among those who are not impressed, though. "I don't care for it," Parise said. "Why is a backup quarterback having a press conference?" More than 200 media members attended Tebow's introductory news conference Monday at the Jets' practice facility in Florham Park. "That doesn't make sense to me," Parise said. ... "I guess you've got to give him some credit for what he did with Denver last year, but they were also winning games 3-0 and 7-3," he said. "Let's give the (defense) some credit too. It just seemed like he got all the credit. It's not as if he was picking defenses apart."

Joe Namath would be rolling in his grave if he was dead.

He's just jealous that Tebow had more reporters at his press conference than the Devils get fans at home games...

well, it was quite the newsflash to me to hear that geographically close teams may, over time, build up a disdain for one another.
We Rangers' fans (and Pens, Flyers, Wings fans also) know nothing of this

I hear there is some kind of rivalry between the Wings and Colorado as well.
