"Why should people get to see plans? This isn't a public project."
Bruce Ratner in Crain's Nov. 8, 2009

"The Nowhere Nets"

The Devils have ratcheted up the Garden State feud taking a big dig at the "Nowhere Nets" who they'd like to see out of Izod and in The Rock in Newark. For those not paying close attention, the Bruce Ratner-owned Nets will no longer wear "New Jersey" on their away jerseys while simultaneously asking for NJ taxpayer-funded improvements at the Meadowlands arena.

The Star Ledger has noticed:

The Nowhere Nets
The Star-Ledger Editorial Board

Quicker than a slapshot, the Devils' full-color advertisement went up on a digital billboard towering over Interstate 78: "We proudly wear our state on our jerseys," the caption pronounced, the bold words running beneath a photo of the hockey team's NJ logo.

It's the latest gotcha in an intramural feud with the Nets, who continue to commit silly personal fouls against the state while playing in a decaying -- and competing -- arena the Devils want closed. But motives aside, the Nets deserved the dig.

It's not enough that the Nets keep insisting they're moving to Brooklyn (call us when a shovel actually scratches the dirt over there), but now the Nets are removing "New Jersey" from their road uniforms for the upcoming basketball season.

Basically, they're saying: "When we're in New Jersey, we'd rather be in Brooklyn, and when we're on the road, we don't want anyone to know we're still from New Jersey."

So, while New Jersey pours millions of tax dollars into Izod Center to prop it up for the Nets, the NBA team repays the state with disrespect.

The Nets say they're just, uh, regionalizing their brand. Hogwash. The team that draws fewer people than a planning board meeting (the Nets ranked 24th out of 30 NBA teams in total attendance last season) suddenly wants to market from horizon to horizon?

Oh, sure, now we get it: "New Jersey Nets" was too limiting. So, heck, let's make them "America's Nets."

And then they could send a bill to the other 49 states, insisting they kick in for the new air conditioning system at Izod Center.
