For the second day in a row in the two day old relationship between Jets fans and their new quarterback Brett Favre ESPN’s John Clayton has decided to polish his “reporting” chops by bashing the trade. Somehow he has taken it upon himself to be the harbinger of doom (at least this time around) against our beloved Jets. My rebuttle: Mind your business.
Have the Jets done something to set you off John? Is it Eric Mangini’s strict no media access policy? Did Brett Favre kick sand in your face at the beach many moons ago? Where’s the beef? Enough with the naysaying. You’re being redundant Clayton. You already told us you thought the deal was a bad move for Brett. Leave us be to get behind our team and our new QB. We have all heard how you non-contact suits have lambasted this move and have promised Brett Favre he’ll fall flat on his face playing for us losers and that the bottom line is that he won’t be able to wash our stench off of him when all is said and done.
Well if you had a crystal ball your predictions would have you in Vegas and not blogging for ESPN. I laugh at your guarantees because they are worth about as much as your Topps rookie card. Oh wait you don’t have one. Ok, maybe worth about as much as your journalism degree. (Not sure if you have one of those).
Isn’t there anything else going on in the NFL for you to “report” on or is your new daily gig just to poo poo things and whine? Jimmy Dugan (Tom Hanks) once said there is no crying in baseball. Well let me coin this phrase: There is a Debby Downer in football and his name is John Clayton.
