The media circus surrounding Revis is such that any meeting in Indianapolis could never have escaped the attentions of the several hundred or so football execs and journalists.In fact any get together would've been likely to have created an even bigger frenzy of speculation.Who tends to benefit from that?
I highly suspect that at the very least the Jets do not want to add fuel to the fire,any Revis discussions need to be done as far from the glare of publicity as possible.Indy this week would be the last place you'd get together,unless of course both sides agreed that putting on a show was mutually beneficial.
Perhaps Feinsod & Schwarz,frustrated that the Jets haven't come running with blank cheques,wanted to create a little discomfort for the Jets,hence the 'sources' close to Manish Mehta....or perhaps what contact there has been between the two parties made it clear that avoiding each other in Indianapolis with a view to conducting business in private at a later date was the correct way to proceed
Agreed, and makes the most sense.
Idzik is already changing the culture of the front office, there are no leaks from the team, and the beat hacks are in for a rude awakening.
Manish will be one of the biggest affected, but in response, he's going to be come an even bigger doosh, fabricating and making up bull****, or putting his spin machine on full power.
It was hilarious seeing Mayock blow off Manish's manifesto and Manish get all butt hurt about it..
