CORTLAND, N.Y. — A brawl involving about 20 players erupted on the sideline in the New York Jets‘ practice Monday, causing reporters to scatter and coming dangerously close to fans.
This has got to be a joke at this point right? A professional sports team simply can not be this dysfunctional. You’ve got a high-profile quarterback controversy involving two painfully mediocre quarterbacks, a coach who continues to run his mouth despite the fact that the team didn’t win anything after he ran said mouth in each of his first three seasons as head coach, you’ve got a psychotic linebacker who’s about to rip the head off of the third string quarterback who wildly criticized the team in the off-season in a blatant attempt to get let go but is still with the team for some reason. You’ve got a wide receiver who took a similar track in the off-season and was injured in practice by the cornerback who has never played a down on offense yet said that he’s the second best wide receiver on the team. You know the one, the guy with 8 different kids from 8 different mother? Now they are literally endangering their fans by having a battle royal within inches of the sidelines.
I refuse to believe that a pro sports team is this messed up. Even with this group, it is literally impossible to be this dysfunctional. Hell, they make the 2012 Red Sox look like the 2004 Red Sox. At least the Sox made the effort to pretend that things were going alright during spring training. The Jets haven’t even waited until a pre-season game has been played to show how much of a mess they are. I’m convinced at this point that they are just messing with us. They’re going to come out looking like the ’85 Bears and start singing Kumbaya together in the locker room after the games while Rex laughs in everyone’s face. Because a team this messed up has to be joking right? There’s no way this is real.
