"[B]The church ladies, like uptight moralist Mike Lupica[/B] of the [I]New York Daily News[/I], who wanted Edwards to miss four games after being arrested on DUI charges...They had to hate this, because Edwards played three quarters. And he played very well."
Didn't see this posted - good article from one of the few NFL beat writers without an agenda.[/QUOTE]
Thanks Indiana for posting that. What a refreshing and really great read. It's a shame we need outside journalists to help protect & stick up for our NYJ players.
In my opinion some of the NY Jet beat writers should stick to following around Paris Hilton with a press pass from TMZ instead of exploiting our players (and their girlfriends) while trying to make a name for themselves.
To anyone looking to attack the New York Jet players - GFY!
[QUOTE=Vin;3755021]LOL! Awesome. :cool: About time we get a Pro-Braylon/Pro-Jets article....[/QUOTE]
Agree 110%. Leave it to the so called NYJ beat reporters to attack the players, bash a guy for making a mistake and painting the team in a very negative light. I don't see any "middle of the road" reporting here? Do you?
[B][U]ANOTHER STRONG SUGGESTION TO THE NY JET PLAYERS - BAN THE MEDIA FROM YOUR CHARITY EVENTS! [/U][/B]
What I'd like to know is do anyone of them actually[B] PAY and/or DONATE[/B] to your charity events when they show up?
Aside from Randy Lange, how many actually give you a nice write up the next day?
And lastly, don't you think OFF the field charity events should be OFF limits to the press?
For me personally these events over the years have been very private affairs between the players, fans & friends of the team. It's also a time to socialize, have fun and talk about ANYTHING else but football all while raising money for a very worthy cause.
While I don't encourage anyone to drink & drive and I am not saying Braylon was an angel here, but for all that's good and holy the line has to be drawn somewhere between sports and tabloid journalism, don't cha think?
