League to conduct Jets-inspired sensitivity training on Monday

As the league office ponders whether and to what extent the Jets will be sanctioned for the Sal Alosi shibacle, the aftermath of one of the team’s other 2010 entanglements will trickle down to the rest of the league on Monday.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the league will conduct in Boston training inspired by the Ines Sainz situation at and after Jets practice on September 11.  The goal will be to ensure that the Michael Scotts who may inhabit one or more NFL teams will know what not to say when interacting with females in the workplace.  (We don’t know whether the program will include a portion on texting.)

Initially, the plan was for one representative of each team to attend the training personally, and then to be responsible for directly providing the training to the players and other relevant staff.  When concerns arose regarding the reality that, in many cases, the selected representatives would have to travel to Boston on what otherwise is a game day, the rules were softened to allow attendance via web connection.

Multiple personnel from each team were in Texas for a quarterly owners meeting last week.  It’s unclear why the session wasn’t conducted then and there.

The fact that other teams must attend and then conduct training seminars as a result of something the Jets did has created more resentment toward a franchise that has been involved in a few too many entanglements of late.  From Ines Sainz to Sal Alosi to Jenn Sterger to the gone-but-not-forgotten “Jets West Camp,” it’s been a rough year off the field for a team that has had a rough two weeks on it.

    Each time the Jets cheat, lie or violate league rules and policies – the league issues league-wide “clarifications” or “training”.

    When any other team violates a rule the league issues penalties, suspensions and sanctions against that specific team.

    Goodell is a joke. There is one team in the league that broke all these rules, how about just re-training them and spare the other teams the lecture since they don’t seem to have a problem playing within the rules.

    Watching the Jets organization begin to implode has been hysterical.

    Rex Ryan looks like someone stole his puppy and he has shown that he doesn’t have a clue.

    Enjoy Jets fans as your team pushed all its chips to the center of the table for the run this season.

    As they say in the casino in Las Vegas, its 7’s for the Jets and they are about to crap out.

    Nacho Sanchoke will make a very good career back up .

    Can’t wait for these pencil-pushers to arrive at Jets HQ with their clipboards and spouting words like “paradigm”. Ryan will shove the little dweebs into a locker while Bart Scott and Revis take turns smashing into the locker until the junior zeros give the A-OK.

    The JETS, first and foremost, need to conduct sensitivity training on their receivers’ hands!

    Specifically on the hands of Braylon “Hands of Stone” Edwards.
