Yankees fans boo Jets quarterback Geno Smith

It's a pretty exciting time to be a sports fan around the city of New York these days - if you just ignore the NBA that is.

The New York Yankees are currently top of the AL East division whilst returning star Alex Rodriguez is doing what he does best.

The New York Rangers had a great season and made it to the Eastern Conference Finals despite not making it to the Stanley Cup.

Meanwhile on the football field, the New York Jets have had arguably the best off-season recruiting program in the NFL.

The New York Giants saw their star wide receiver gifted with the cover of the next Madden game and pretty much everyone is excited to see what Odell Beckham Jr will do next year.

One man around New York who may have to re-think going to a sports event any time soon though is New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith.

Smith came under a lot of criticism last season after some poor performances and clearly the people of New York haven't forgot that.

Smith attended the Yankees' game on Saturday against the LA Angels and received a less than welcome response from the fans.

Whenever Smith was shown on the jumbo-tron at Yankee Stadium, the fans erupted in a chorus of boos.

Presumably made up of both Jets and Giants fans, the people of New York clearly have clearly got a big problem with Smith.

Smith was one of many who had a horrific season last year with the Jets going 4-12 and finishing bottom of the AFC East.

Many Jets fans wanted the team to find a replacement quarterback this off-season but it now appears that Smith will be set to start under center again in 2015.

With new weapons around him, that could be a good thing but only time will tell if he can change the minds of the people of New York.

A big year

The Jets have recruited very heavily this off-season and have brought in enough talent to have a good chance of competing for the AFC East divisional title this year.

The re-united duo of Antonio Cromartie and Darrelle Revis are a great addition to the Jets defense whilst newly acquired Brandon Marshall gives Smith a great target to aim for.

Who knows what the Jets will accomplish next season? but like offensive lineman Willie Colon said earlier this week, their success lies on the shoulders of Geno Smith.
