Bart Scott tries another media mutiny


The Jets never disappoint.

Thanks to the anonymous “terrible” comments about Tim Tebow, they dealt with controversy all week that the media fed on like hungry sharks. It didn’t take them long after their 27-13 win over the Rams to stoke the flames and ensure more scrutiny of life in the locker room.

Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post reports that linebacker Bart Scott led a “media mutiny” in the locker room after the game by the team’s defense. Per Hubbuch, Scott threatened any player on the defense who said anything other than “both teams played hard.” That included calling linebacker Bryan Thomas a “MF—ing sellout” for saying more than Scott wanted him to say. The attempted mutiny came to an end after safety Yeremiah Bell told Scott to stop, which was followed by Scott talking “calmly and openly” to the media.

It’s not Scott’s first attempted mutiny of the season. He declared one after the season opening victory over the Bills and later had a locker room confrontation with another reporter.

So much for that more placid week in the wake of a win.
