FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The oft-penalized Jets are about to be hit with more flags.

The creators of the "Fire John Idzik" website and billboards announced Thursday they plan to distribute 10,000 "penalty flags" to Jets fans on Dec. 21, the final home game of the season.

The yellow and green towels take aim at not only Idzik, the team's general manager, but also team president Neil Glat and longtime Jets executive Terry Bradway.

"Attention Woody," they read, " . . . Clean house!"

In a statement, the website creators said "Penalty Flag Day" is a joint effort between them, the anonymous group of fans who commissioned the "Fire John Idzik" plane above practice last month and sports bars in "the New York City Metro area."

"If Steeler fans can waive 'Terrible Towels' in our building, Jets fans surely have the right to waive our 'Penalty Flags,' " they wrote.

According to the statement, fans can show their game ticket to a bartender and receive up to five towels.
