NEW YORK (WFAN) — Former Jets linebacker Bart Scott is taking his “media mutiny” into overtime.
Scott joined WFAN radio’s “Boomer & Carton” show on Tuesday to talk about his former team and his transition from the playing field to CBS Sports Network’s “That Other Pregame Show.”
But first he had some strong words for the New York media, which he pledged to boycott — even though he still won’t call it a boycott — in 2012.
“In that locker room, there’s a bunch of jerks in there,” Scott said. “There’s a lot of people that go about business the wrong way. I didn’t want to deal with that, and I thought, let’s not deal with them. You can’t not deal with them and talk to other media because they’ll put up a complaint against you. So the best thing was just to go against everybody, and the good kind of get bottled in with the bad.”
