We are in constant spin mode over everything (when have you ever heard Mike Tannenbaum give a straight answer about anything). It has been obvious since day 1 that this owner is in over his head. He was lucky to inherit a team on the upside (inheriting is what he does best), but has slowly driven it back into the ground.
And let's add one more to that thought:
"The Jets welcome attention when they want it, which is pretty much always (except this week). If the league won’t force them to comply with the rule (and the league should), the NFL should impose a penalty so significant that no franchise will in the future choose silence and the relative parking ticket that goes along with it."
