Last week, FOX’s Jay Glazer joined PFT Live and shared some strong comments, apparently somewhat in jest, regarding NFLPA* executive director DeMaurice Smith. Glazer reiterated those comments earlier today on The Dan Patrick Show, guest-hosted by Andrew Siciliano.
After hearing Glazer say it a second time, we’re starting to think he believes it.
“You watch an interview of De Smith, I don’t know what the hell he says,” Glazer said. “I don’t understand what he says. I tell the players, ‘You should never let that guy do an interview, ever.’ Because he’s so not believable he doesn’t — I just don’t understand a word he says.”
Glazer then made a comparison that he shared on PFT Live last week, explaining that Smith answers questions in the Jewish way, with another question. (Glazer can say that because he’s Jewish, and he didn’t convert for the jokes.)
Alas, Glazer didn’t repeat today his suggestion from last week regarding the best approach to mediation. He thinks the parties should use the mafia, in the hopes they’d made some offers that no one could refuse.
Glazer isn’t Italian, and he’s not to my knowledge converting, for jokes or otherwise. But I’ll give him a pass, this time. If he does it again, though, I’ll have to send him fish wrapped in newspaper.
