Bart Scott tries to lead mutiny against media following Jets win






Now that the New York Jets have actually won in a convincing fashion for the first time since they beat the Colts, 35-9, on October 14, it's time for linebacker Bart Scott to act stupid again. Scott, who threatened a reporter in the team locker room in September, tried to get his teammates to say nothing but "Both teams played hard" following their Sunday 27-13 win over the St. Louis Rams.
According to Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post, Scott was trying to lead the movement against the media after anonymous teammates and team officials allegedly ripped Tim Tebow to the New York Daily News this week.
"Bart Scott is leading a media mutiny by the Jets defense in the locker room," Hubbuch tweeted after the game. "This is ridiculous ... Bart Scott is ordering every Jets defensive player to say nothing but "both teams played hard." Threatening any that don't ... Scott blaming everyone in the media for the Daily News story ... Thankfully, Yeremiah Bell isn't participating in Bart Scott's boycott foolishness. A true pro ... Scott yells at Bryan Thomas for breaking the boycott, calling him "a MF-ing sellout." Yeremiah Bell tells Scott: "Stop it. Just stop it."
About 10 minutes later, this from Hubbuch:


"Now that his boycott flopped, Bart Scott is talking calmly and openly to the media. What a team this is."

Indeed. Even when they do well, the Jets can't keep from getting in their own way. Keep in mind that all this noise is coming from a guy who had one tackle against the Rams, and has a grand total of 21 solo tackles this season.

I don't blame Bart. He was singled out by LT and of course the media ran with that. I'd be angry too, especially if I didn't do it.

But the media has been ridiculous. Way more ridiculous even than usual. Even if Tebow was actually contributing, I wish he was anywhere else.

Whatever man, I'm with Bart on this. He's been saying it since preseason; why should he or the team make the reporter's jobs easier when their sole intention is to tear them down by either twisting their words or cherry-pick a line from an entire interview designed to elicit those very types of responses. These guys aren't genius personal relation marketing reps, they are 20 and 30 year old professional athletes who just finished playing a brutal game where their adrenaline is at an extremely high level, yet it's these players who are acting unprofessional instead of the supposedly, level-headed unbiased journalists. It's like interviewing a Axl Rose, Eddie Van Halen, Jimmy Page etc. after a two hour rock show and not expecting to hear "I'm gonna get laid tonight." You can tell the reporters that despise/are jealous of athletes and those who take their job serious and love what they do. Pretty obvious.

Can you imagine if every reporter wrote a story on something said anonamously? People dont do it, its silly and unporfessional. The media love the frenzy, but how could no one talk about a writer releasing stories like this.

Bart Scott is a buffoon. His mentality aligns with that of Rex, and is a large part of why we have a juvenile, psychologically feeble team. Winning teams are filled with men. Bart is a goofy child.

Not when you curse out one of the longest tenured Jets for ignoring you. There is no leadership in chastising a teammate for ignoring immature and unprofessional antics. If Bart was respected, and an actual leader they'd listen to him. Sounds like veterans re embarrassed by him instead.

LOL @ this. Mutiny? Really? There's no doubt that Scott's being a baby and has been all season, but get the **** over yourself Hubbuch. If I'm on the Jets, I'm dressing up as a pirate on Monday and stabbing the guy in the back with a toy sword or some sh*t.

Mutiny. Even writers suck at writing now. We're so screwed.

(Chandler)'s a nice piece as long as he's the 7th most important player on your roster....I think they're going to be disappointed when they see he's just a pumped-up Drew Gooden.

Unless I hear the entirety of the conversation between Thomas, Scott and Bell, I'm going to go ahead and not take the dude who's trying to play this off as a mutiny, for his word. It's a bit petulant from Scott, but he's a 30 something year old man playing football for a living, why does the journalist, most likely with four years of higher education, penning this drivel not catch any more heat?? It's baffling.

Scott reacted angrily to Tomlinson’s accusation.
“That can’t be farther from the truth,” Scott told The Post. “One thing about me is I ain’t ever hid behind [junk] that I’ve ever said. I’m not afraid to put my name to it, go to a person and say it to them.”
Scott was quoted at a charity event Tuesday saying the team is a family and would stick together.
“Why would I have those comments and then have another article about we’re a family?” Scott said. “The same day, am I bipolar? LaDainian is out of line in thinking I have that type of character. I don’t know what he believes I showed to him when he was here. If anything, I hope I showed him I was a leader and I never try to be a distraction.”


Sounds like a denial to me.

It doesn't even matter if Hubbuch is lying. This isn't mutiny. There's no relationship of power here. Hubbuch isn't ****ing Captain Hook and Bart Scott isn't Smee. The guy's a god damn beat writer.

Solid point as usual, but the message is a bit lost as all I can think of is Dusty Hoffman, Robin Williams and Bob Haskins in Hook. Run Home Jack!

I think Scott can be a clown and I liked him better when he was good at football. But the crew that covers the Jets has several clowns in it. I think Manish is a hack that doesn't know much about football. When Cimini is the best reporter, things have gone terribly wrong.
