The New York Jets are still a mess, but now that mess has spilled over into the media that covers them.
Bart Scott played four seasons in New York, so he has some idea about how the media coverage of the Jets work. Scott who is now a member of the media himself, told WFAN that “the media that covers the Jets are jerks.”
“In that locker room, there’s a bunch of jerks in there,” Scott said. “There’s a lot of people that go about business the wrong way. I didn’t want to deal with that. I thought, let’s not deal with them. You can’t not deal with them and talk to other media because they’ll put up a complaint against you. So the best thing was just to go against everybody, and the good kind of get bottled in with the bad.”
Scott is now in the position of analyzing players, so he may soon become one of the jerks.
