Fulmer Heads Down 'Super Ad' Home Stretch


Rob Fulmer is one of the most passionate fans in all of sports and he bleeds Jets green. Fulmer is also of the nine finalists in the NFL's "Super Ad: That's how I see It" promotion.

And this superfan needs your help to prove that the New York Jets have the best fans in the NFL. Voting ends Sunday and there's no limit on the amount of times you can vote.

We recently spoke to Fulmer to see how he got to become "Jetman."

How long have you been a Jets fan?

I was born and raised a Jets fan. I went to my first game when I was probably about 3 years old, but I've always been a fan.

I understand that you endure got quite a commute to get to Jets games.

I moved to New Hampshire about four years ago and I still come for every home game. No matter where my company moves me to, I will not miss a game.

Is it true that you asked your wife to sign a contract saying you were unavailable during all Jets home games?

We actually were at dinner one night and we were joking around before we got engaged. We were talking about the Jets, and she said, "Oh, don't worry, I'm not that kind of wife. I'm not going to stop you from going to the games." So I said, "Let me ask you something. What are you going to do 10, 15, 20 years down the road? Are you going to remember this conversation?" And she said, "You write up a contract and I'll sign it." It was all joking around and stuff, but I did. I went home and I wrote out a contract and she signed it.

Who do you tailgate with?

Every game I usually go with my cousin John and my brother-in-law Kenny. They've been going to the games with me for years and it's a tradition. It's a great family time. The three of us have kids now and we bring our kids to the game, so it's great.

What are you like during games?

I'm a crazy guy. Sometimes I'm yelling at the refs. Sometimes I'm yelling in general. In my section, I sit in Section 331 and they're a rowdy crowd. We have a good time.

Who would you like to see be the next head coach of the Jets?

I'm a fan of Bill Cowher, but I'm open. I like Shanahan. He's out there, he'd be a great fit. I'm glad Woody made the tough decision. I was a Mangini fan, as I'm sure he was when he hired him, but it's time to get the job done and we have a team right now that can get the job done. I think there's a couple of good candidates out there.

Do you want to see Favre return?

I do. Without a question, I want Favre back. Everybody talks about how he throws some bad interceptions once in a while, but you know what? You've got to take the good with the bad and I think he's definitely more good. He brought a spark to our team and I think that goes a long way.

What do you think about the New Jets Stadium opening in 2010?

I'm excited for the new stadium, I really am. I think with the PSL licenses it's going to be an opportunity for me to move up from Section 3 down to the lower level, because I believe some people aren't going to pay the PSL and that's their prerogative, but I think some people like me that want to move up and will pay PSLs, I think it's a great move.

What have you been doing to try to get out the vote for this contest?

I've done a lot of things. I'm actually a regional manager for nine radio stations up in New Hampshire, so my morning shows have been talking about it. I've probably emailed over 10,000 people. I've been interviewed in a bunch of different newspapers. I've handed out over 5,000 business cards the past two Jets games and the Jets interviewed me at the two-minute warning at the Denver game.
