Hey we may have had off the field issues a plenty but we played straight on the field...I'm not saying there aren't classless players in any organization other than the Jets but its the reason why I can't get behind the Jets, thats all...amongst other teams for sure....fan or not, it was a d!ck move and he should be fined and or suspended/fired...and "because its the Jets"??? They (two weeks ago at least) were a dominantly superior team to the Giants and don't get nearly the same amount of local coverage...There are at least 8 or 9 teams (the Cowboys being one of them) had this happened to it would be a bigger deal...
The Cowboys were part of my 2%, they're maybe the only other team who if this happened would be getting as much negative press out of it. The proof in the pudding is all the moral outrage that happened when Braylon didn't get suspended for his DUI when almost nobody else suspends players for DUI's either including the Giants, Dolphins, Chargers (with Vincent Jackson in the playoffs last year), etc.
And I still fail to see how Rex's 'culture' is any different than Jimmy Johnson's culture. Both were braggarts that had trash-talking players, the difference is one eventually won and the other hasn't yet. And Rex has been around two years, that's not the reason you don't like the Jets. Heck, the Ravens pulled similar crap before they won too, that's where Rex came from after all.
If it's "not such a big deal" then why is it being talked about the day after???
It would be talked about with anyone because it was unique, difference is if it happened to the Steelers, the Chiefs, whatever it wouldn't be taken as a referendum on the culture of the organization the way it is with the Jets. It would be taken for what it is, one dope who lost his mind. But since it's the Jets somehow Rex 'encourages' this because he and the players talk. Like there isn't a big difference between trash-talking from people actually involved in the game to a guy who isn't even a coach sticking a knee out on the sidelines.
