Mike Pettine is Manish Source

Recommended Posts

According to many including Mike Francessa everyone knows it. Manish and Pettine are close and have been for years. Pettine isn't looking good to me if this is true. I'm no fan of fat Mike either, but I believe him.

Manish makes up source in his sleep. Always has, always was. He needed to make sure The Daily News hired a worse reporter than Cimini, and is accomplishing it well!

What is this Manish/Pettine long term relationship based on? At what point in their histories did they meet?

Pettine was Rex's'show beard' in Baltimore.

Pettine would go buy high end shoes for Rex's foot fetish videos.

Manish was a shoe salesman at Nordstrom's. Manish and Pettines stuck up a friendship then.

In most organizations this kind of stuff will get you fired right away. With the Jets, it gets you an extension offer.

Rex's loyalties and failure to hold people accountable is a huge failure

No more captains and no more "assistant" coaches. From now on, we're all just "players" and "coaches." That's it.

Good theory, except the supposed extension offer was from early in the year.

yeah tbh somewhere around the, no more captains thing, is where the guy lost me. Due to his own enormous mistake by making Holmes one, everyone else would be punished...even the guys like Mangold or Moore who actually deserved it.

If Pettine is hoping for a head coaching job down the road, why would leak all this info to the media? Other front offices find out about this stuff. Why would he hurt his reputation? I'm not saying he's not the guy, but what is he thinking? He'll have to answer to these accusations down the road. Not a smart move on his behalf.

If Woody has any balls "Not Manish" Mehta's press creds get pulled.

Not the Daily News, just him

Fire Mehta

As much as they might like to, they probably cant. The press union and writers associations will throw a fit if one of their own is prohibited from attending.

Plus you dont run and hide from the guy who wrote a bad story about your organization. If they did, no media would be allowed there.

There is no way they can do that. Not for the Daily News. If it was a smaller outfit the Jets could (and would) try to call the shots. But not for the Daily News.

I have some inside info. Im Related to someone in the organization. Pettine is the leak. He's been the leak for a long time. He is mr unnamed source and pretty much everyone frm the top to the players know it. The question is, are his leaks really his words? Or is he the guy with just enough distance to push the jets agenda without raising eyebrows? Not all leaks are really leaks. Some are just unofficial press releases.

best way to see this would be to list manish's 'unnamed source stories' in chronological order.

How is it his fault? He's reporting what people are telling him. Why should he sit on that? To do the Jets a favor? How is that his responsibility?

Mehta has no responsibility to do the Jets any favors. That said, it's f*cking sports journalism. He's not rooting out government corruption or corporate abuses of power, it's the goddamned New York Jets. There is absolutely no excuse for this many articles with unnamed "sources."

Florham Park is a rats nest filled with low-character finger-pointers with unconscionably inflated opinions of their contributions to NFL football teams. If they want to pull Manish into a broom closet to pass the buck anonymously, what's he supposed to do? Refuse them? Come on now.

Francesa reported yest that this has been well known for quite some time yet no one from the media asked Rex about it during his presser.

Just another layer to this teams dysfunctional chemistry from top to bottom. Blow it up.

Francesa also feels Rex , Tanny and Sanchez are given one more year but that the OC and all the Assistants should be let go. Tstays

Agree. I mean if one is a reporter and someone (Jets DC) wants to give him an entire calendar year of scoops he would be crazy to turn them down.

It's not even passing the buck. It's gossipy nonsense. But I guess it IS too much to expect a runt like Mehta to do better.
