    He's not part of the Jets organization.

    That's not true and you know it. Even when we were successful (relatively speaking) Cimini was always pointing out the negatives. A lot of folks have said that he gets a lot of his material right off of these boards.

    His 'unnamed sources' were probably posts on this board to boot.

    Cimini belongs to the organization known as ESPN. And yes, that organization can be a pitiful joke sometimes.

    Are you f-ing crazy? In 09 & 10, at least locally, the beat reporters were still bashing away. Maybe diff't on a national scale, but locally, this motley crew of wanna-be journalists were just as unprofessional and muck raking as they are now.

    Please stop commenting on things about which you have no clue. What you read in the Houston tabloids is irrelevant to here.

    I'm what passes for a Cimini apologist here (although I far from like the guy), but this is a pretty scummy thing to do.

    Its one thing if it was a totally light hearted joke that really didn't rip into anyone and just kept it fun, but he really goes after other writers and Jake Steinberg, a 19/20 yr old kid. Really? Is that what we expect out of the longest tenured beat writer?

    He has proven to be an even bigger dirtbag than we all thought he was

    Sooth can probably confirm whether or not this is accurate
    Really?

    I'm pretty sure the First Amendment doesn't cover football locker rooms.

    Cimini is such a scumbag that this wouldn't surprise at all...

    And this has nothing to do with the team even though the douche SOJFans want it to.

    The First Amendment only deals with freedom of speech, written, verbal or expression.

    It has absolutely nothing to do with access.

    It's also about GOVERNMENT regulation. But for the NFL rules which require media access, the Jets as a private organization don't have to grant anyone access and could tell Cimini to take a hike and get his info from the other side of the fence.

    So... what happened? The page doesn't exist anymore and I missed this thread. What did Cimini do?

    Correct, the Jets can pull credentials from any of these beat writers.

    I could have sworn there was this Freedom of the Press thing in the Constitution....maybe not in Texas though where the second amendment is the only part they haven't shredded

    Access to an NFL team has nothing to do with your Constitutional Rights. Cimini can publish anything he wants, but he is not guaranteed the right to enter the Jets locker room or practice facility to do so.

    Is it...."Congress shall make no law...." or

    "Woody Johnson shall make no law...."?

    I tweeted Brian Costello earlier, who said that this had 1: no merit, and 2: was a non story.

    For what it's worth.
