Jets’ Cromartie Rips Union In Profanity-Laced Rant

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP/WFAN) — Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie used an expletive to describe union and NFL leaders Monday in his latest profanity-filled rant.

Less than two weeks after he used the same obscenity about Tom Brady, Cromartie took on both sides in the league’s unresolved labor talks, saying they “need to get their (expletive) together and get it done.”

Cromartie and his teammates were asked about the uncertainty of the labor situation as they cleaned out their lockers, a day after losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC championship game. With the collective bargaining agreement set to expire and little progress in negotiations, a potential lockout looms.

“You’ve got our head union reps acting like an (expletive), and they got their guys acting like them (expletive),” Cromartie told reporters.

It was Cromartie who escalated the trash talk between New York and the Patriots before their divisional playoff game, ripping the New England quarterback. Just as defiant Monday about a completely different topic, he said he didn’t care if anybody got mad about his comments, because “you’re basically dealing with people’s livelihoods.”

Cromartie is a free agent after his first season with the Jets.

“You don’t get no information about nothing from the union or the owners,” he said. “To tell you the truth, they need to get their damn minds together and get this (expletive) done and stop (complaining) about money. Money ain’t nothing.”

    Footyball is nothing more then legalized thuggery where today’s modern Romans watch player get decapitated at best and a concussion on a bad hit.

  • Jets Fan

    Millionaires playing for billionaires, who cares? If you want them to stop complaining, just ignore them really ignore them, and they will truly go away or play ball.

    The economy has been in shambles and these prima donnas are complaining that they can’t afford their mansions and yachts on with a 6 mos work year.

    JPlease, make them all go away.
