    Lotta journalists are insecure....someone else getting the scoop or covering it better sends them spinning...they are a breed apart,some really cool ones though

    I tend to disagree with that. I still buy it. He has some excellent articles especially his WHISPERS column . I honestly do not see much negativity in it. I have read a lot of good feedback and insight into the draft. I also see articles about former Jets and I find it nice to keep up with them. I try to buy anything associated with the Jets or anything that can shed some light on the team. Its hard living in Florida to keep up with the Jets.

    Dcat, I still read JC. It has pretty good insights and the Whispers section is good as well. As for Leberfeld, he has tempered his opinions the past couple of years and is not at all reticent to take fellow members of the Jets beat to task, Mehta and Cimini included. Not saying you should like him for it, just pointing out what you may not know since you no longer get JC.
    Good point. Leberfeld has gone after "journalists" that dump on the Jets in JC. He has done it several times.

    Dick C's twitter account has been dark since his apology tweet. I'd say he's suspended.

    Deadspin has catalogued the many different ways that ESPN has treated women poorly. Nice to know Rich C's true feelings about his co-worker. Her work is sh!t but apparently he thinks that his body of work is stellar.

    What a joke. Fire this clown.

    Seems to have been completely missed or ignored by the media.

    He was suspended for a week. But all he did was demean a female coworker so in the ESPN boardroom he's a stellar guy who will probably get a promotion in short order.

No way -- and if you disagree try reading some of the work of Miami's homer, inferiority complex driven beat writers.

    And for those of you who think he's easily replaceable, you can't simply replace his historical knowledge of the team and contacts within the organization. Maybe Cannizarro could step in for him, but I can't think of many others.

    Look, I'm by no means a Cimini apologist, but I do think his detractors have gotten seriously carried away with all this bashing. If you want to read fluff pieces, follow Steiny; if you want to be angry at someone in the media, direct it at Mehta.
    So there must be a ton of negativity around the Eagles,Bills,Chargers,Bengals,Oilers/Titans,Cards,Lions yet there isn't compared to Jet fans who seem to love negative articles. Or maybe the other cities have better sports writers covering those teams??
