A “bizarre scene” is apparently unfolding in the Jets open locker room, as linebacker Bart Scott apparently threatened to punch a reporter.
According to the Twitter feed of Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post, the incident began when Dan Leberfeld of JetsConfidential.com took a cell phone photo of Scott, who then suggested Leberfeld “get a life.”
Words were exchanged, and according to Hubbuch, Jets PR man Bruce Speight stepped between the two, the “only thing that seemed to prevent fisticuffs.”
Scott apparently threatened to punch Leberfeld, who replied “Yeah, and I’ll sue you!”
Scott said: “I don’t care!”
Earlier this offseason, Scott declared a “media mutiny,” by which he meant boycott.
If the Jets are trying to dispel the notion of a circus, they have a funny way of going about it.
