I think this may have played a part. From Leberfeld's website. The bolded part.
Extra! Extra! New JC Mag out – you don’t want to miss it! 09.21.12
There is so much good stuff in the newest issue of Jets Confidential Magazine, you won’t be able to put it down.
We have eight pages of Jets Whispers. We aren’t kidding.
We also expose Bart’s friend who started the “circus” talk. It wasn’t the media, it was Bart’s friend.
And so much more.
Pick it up on a Tri-State area newstand before they are all gone.
Or subscribe to the magazine by calling 1-800-932-4557 (M-F, 9-5) or you can subscribe on the his website.
You aren’t going to read this stuff anywhere else!
IMO blatant trolling.
