After lodging a complaint only yesterday that the Jets did not make a team official or their head coach available to conduct a season ending press conference within a week of the season ending, the Pro Football Writers of America seems to be content with the current arrangement after speaking with the team.
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.The complaint seemed premature especially since the PFWA had not spoken to the organization at that point to hear their side of the story. Today's press release all but confirms that they jumped the gun on this one. So, what have we learned today, folks? Sometimes, you just need to hug it out (Warning: NSFW language).
