Bart Scott Attempts to Lead Media Boycott After Jets Win, But It Doesn’t Really Work Out

Bart Scott is kind of an insufferable human being, and he was reportedly doing more insufferable things on Sunday afternoon after the New York Jets actually won a game.

Following a tumultuous week with more media distractions — thanks to an unnamed ripping of Tim Tebow in the New York Daily News — the Jets came out and dominated the St. Louis Rams on Sunday afternoon.  One would think that following a whupping, the loud-mouth Jets — especially the gum-flapping Scott — would love to discuss how amazing they are with the media.

Apparently, that wasn’t the case however.

Scott channeled his inner-Gandhi and attempted to lead a media boycott following the game. The New York Post’s Bart Hubboch was in the locker room after the game, and he was all over Scott’s protest attempts.

You have to absolutely love the fact that a member of the Jets defense — the same defense that went off the record to rip the backup quarterback — is blaming somebody else for the fact that the Jets are a circus. In fact, there are even those (former Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson among them) who think that Scott may have actually been one of the unnamed sources afraid to put his name to the criticisms of the backup quarterback in the New York Daily News piece.

Anyway, Scott’s protest didn’t work out the way he planned it.

However, there is a chance that Scott was just joking the entire time.

In fact, the Jets linebacker eventually addressed the media, which is not the way you want your media boycott to go.

Knowing what we know about Bart Scott, though, it’s tough to believe that this was a joke, at least if we believe Hubbuch tweet-for-tweet. The “it was only a joke” thing also sounds like the exact thing you would say if your attempted media boycott blew up in your face. So there’s that.
