Well it looks like the Jets are not going to get into trouble after all.
Yesterday, the Pro Football Writers Association filed a complaint against the Jets over the fact that they are not having their press conference during the week after the final game. The writers felt the need to make trouble for the Jets, and since it was a “technical” violation of the rules, the complaint was filed. However, after talking to the Jets about the situation, the matter is being dropped. Here is the statement released by the PWFA:
“The PFWA is satisfied that the New York Jets are following the spirit of the rules in making their executives available on Tuesday. There is good reason for the NFL’s rule requiring teams to make a top executive available to communicate with the fans through the media within seven days after the end of the season. After discussing the circumstances with the Jets, we look forward to hearing from owner Woody Johnson and coach Rex Ryan on Tuesday.”
A fitting and appropriate end to an issue that was only a big deal to the beat writers for the Jets. Despite the fact that the media spent most of the 2012 season asking Rex Ryan the same four questions over and over again, they were up in arms over this gross violation of the rules. Well now, their own union came back and told them basically that they were being stupid.
Take that, Manish, Rich, ..etc.
