As New York Jets players walked off at halftime on Thanksgiving after getting the stuffing knocked out of them on Thanksgiving night by the New England Patriots, fans in the expensive club seats voiced their frustration in a not-so-friendly fashion.

Ed Anzalone steps down as Fireman Ed but not as a Jets fan. Take a look back.

Bart Scott, who said he didn't hear the taunts, wanted those fans to know he doesn't care what they think or what they scream.

"At the end of the day, if you made it to be able to put an NFL uniform on, then you are one of the best athletes in the world," Scott told the New York Daily News. "The person yelling at you probably was picked last in dodgeball all through high school. So do you care about the opinion of them? No."

Sorry, Bart, you're wrong. First, they won't let us play dodgeball anymore. Second, we'll go out on a limb and say the guys who would have been picked last weren't at any football game at all on Thanksgiving.

As for what those unruly fans were yelling, here is a compilation taken from the YouTube video:

"You are pathetic. Every one of you."
"You suck!"
"You guys are a disgrace!"

Brandt: Tebow not an NFL QB
Tim Tebow has talent, Gil Brandt says, but if he wants to stay in the NFL, he'll have to try a different position. More ...
"You are bums!"
"You're terrible!"
"Tebow, I want you in the second half!"
"You should be ashamed of yourselves!"
"Tebow, save us!"
"Sanchez! You suck!"
"Might as well take off the second half too!"
"Garbage! Garbage! Garbage!"

UPDATE: Rex Ryan told reporters he spoke to the linebacker and told him "you have to appreciate the fans," via Kimberley A. Martin.
