Remember Francesa admonished the Jets for not suspending Edwards for the Dolphins game. When it was mentioned to the Sports Pope that in the history of the NFL no team has ever suspended their own player for a DWI, the Pontiff ruled; I don't care. His listeners then blessed themselves and said Thank you.
At the same time, it was brought to the attention of his Excellence that a few years ago a Giants' player (Kareem McKenzie) was caught drinking under the influence he ruled; "thats different, it was in the offseason". So in his Excellence's mind the Diehl situation has already been ruled upon. His Edict will be that the act is wrong but since its the offseason the Giants are not responsible for discipline.
Who cares what fatty says? We all know he has double-standards. His treatment of this will not prove or disprove otherwise. It is already known.
Enough with the Giants envy. All this complaining does is bring credence to everything people about the Jets/Giants fan dynamic. Little brother sydrome.
Yes, they get preferential treatment. We need to get over it. They are a flagship franchise and have won 4 SBs.
My issue has nothing to do with the Giants. Over the last 30 plus years they have been one of the best run franchises in the sport. As a fan of the sport you must respect that because they are where you would want your team to be as a franchise.
My issue is with Francesa who uses his influence to play kingmaker based on who he deems worthy. A media member who has allowed his ego to swell to such a degree that he is obnoxious to the very people that has helped him attain his financial success. He would not be where he is if not for the listening and viewing choices made by the audience. But to hear how he talks to his callers is to hear someone who has lost that perspective.
Yeah....he will mention the Diehl incident right after the Lawrence Taylor interview where fatcessa will slobber all over such a "great" Giant.
And adds that he feels sorry for someone that committed statutory rape and soliciting a prostitute. Not to mention someone that was doing lines of cocaine before the game. But God forbid you predict that your team will win the Super Bowl. That is reprehensible and worth spending months admonishing.

Bad title for this thread, I really don't care what fatboy has to say about
Diehl. I'm interested in the hypocrisy of the whole media covering this
incident. Is Diehl going to get a pass about being drunk because his
team won a Super Bowl or will he be destroyed like Braylon Edwards
was??? Will Coughlin get a pass about how dysfunctional his locker room
is because he won a Super Bowl or will he get destroyed like Rex???
