    Pro football writers of America files complaint against the jets - no joke

    Getty Images
    Next Tuesday’s press conference featuring Jets owner Woody Johnson and Jets coach Rex Ryan will be the franchise’s most anticipated non-football event since officially introducing the quarterback they never used.

    This time, the anticipation comes from the fact that the Jets intentionally delayed the media availability in defiance of league rules. And while the actual press conference is coming only a few days after the mandatory one-week window for a postseason postmortem from the head coach, the Professional Football Writers of America have filed a formal complaint with the NFL.

    “We have been assured the league is looking into it,” PFWA President Mark Gaughan, who covers the Bills for the Buffalo News, told the Associated Press. “We’ll await word from the NFL.”

    The Jet deferred any comment to the NFL. The NFL has declined to speculate on what the penalty for delayed access will be.

    The Jets welcome attention when they want it, which is pretty much always (except this week). If the league won’t force them to comply with the rule (and the league should), the NFL should impose a penalty so significant that no franchise will in the future choose silence and the relative parking ticket that goes along with it.

    They should force Woody to sell the team.

    Woody should pull a Sonny Corleone - break Mehta's recording device and throw some money on the ground.

    I smell forfeiture of draft picks...possible death penalty to organization. Maybe even put an asterisk next to the 6-10 season.

    The power of the pen dorks are working themselves into a tizzy. Better get to the drugstore, I see a run on inhalers coming.

    For a billionaire philanthropist to pay a fine that goes to charity...

    If we have to forfeit wins, do we move up in the draft?

    I don't get it. Have a freakin' press conference. Just because the beat writers will try to ask the 'tough' questions, doesn't mean you have to answer them. Put Neil Glat (who?) in front of a microphone on Friday and let him tell the press, "The year didn't go as planned. As of now, Rex is HC, Sparano is OC, and the GM is to be determined. Next question?"

    NFL violation is over. What's the big deal?

    I know it's nit picky, but Woody is no longer a billionaire due to the huge amount of stadium debt he's taken on.

    You, as per your habit, are inserting yourself into a mouse trap. Not as the cheese, I might add.

    Dont complain when the snap comes.

    He could buy everyone that loves, likes you, works with you or even looks in your direction... And still have a few pennies left over to throw at your wooden doll collection... Leaving you friendless...

    I'd say nit picky is right...
