I'm quoting Shuler here, but this is really just a devil's advocate position to the slew of fans going after Mehta.
Why the hate, exactly?
The way I see it, it's killing the messenger, or maybe more accurate, the inevitable by-product.
Mehta is essentially a creation of the running carnival that is Florham Park. If the Jets were run differently, if it were a professional, disciplined franchise, Mehta couldn't report what he writes. Their isn't ONE deepthroat. There are leaks everywhere. FP is the sports version of Washington.
Say what you will, Mehta seemingly is out-working the other slobs, getting all the big scoops. He's kicking everyone of his competitors asses. He has all the sources. What story has he completely made up? Do you really believe Rex (who has proven to be a liar) over Mehta in a he said she said?
Bottom line: Mehta is a creation of the mess, not the cause.
