Jets get nasty with reporters in locker room

Holmes

By Josh Katzowitz

For a team that likes to talk so much trash, the Jets certainly didn’t want to speak to reporters a day after their playoff hopes were dashed by a loss to the Dolphins. And they made themselves extremely clear about that.

Santonio Holmes, who actually talked Sunday after he was benched for the final few minutes of the game, was escorted out by the Jets PR department and refused to comment, according to the Newark Star Ledger.

Linebacker Bart Scott also refused to talk, and when a photographer got in his way, Scott yelled, “Get out of my f------ face” and flipped the bird. Cornerback Darrelle Revis also uncharacteristically declined comment.

It just goes to show how acrimonious that locker room has become and what a disaster of a season it was for the Jets. Coach Rex Ryan will meet with the media today at 3 p.m. ET, and the Jets said today that general manager Mike Tannenbaum will join him. Which might mean there will be some team and/or coaching personnel decisions to discuss. 

But say this for Ryan, who apparently cried in front of his team while giving his last speech of the season and pleading for team unity. As blustery as he is, he answers all questions after an opponent makes him look foolish. It’s called being accountable. Sounds like his team is exactly the opposite.

Really? OK, let's see how long this lasts.

When someone post something negative about a team you like, that you disagree with,  BUT IS NOT DIRECTED AT YOU PERSONALLY, let's see if you can hold back from a personal attack (calling people old, fat, disparaging where they live, etc, etc).  If somone says the JETS suck, that doesn't mean you are allowed to attack them personally.   If you disagree, fine, reply with a response that STAYS on THE TOPIC.  Don't start internet fights by talking about things that have nothing to do with sports. You just invite others to do the same to you and you can't take the heat.

Its just disgusting that CBS allows this guy to spread his nonsense and personal attacks all over their boards. If anyone needs to be banned, its this guy. And if CBS does not remove him, there is something sorely wrong. I am going to write a letter to the CEO of CBS questioning the ability of individuals to attack others for no good reason. This guy claims that I called him something vile which is an outright LIE. Now he claims that one is not allowed to post on other teams boards or label another a liar on the boards??????  Is there another word other than LIAR???? Why, because I do not think the Jets are the greatest team in history because they have won 4 playoff games in the last 10 years, but have not won a championship in nearly 50 years, and were eliminated this year???????
