Dave Meggett needs to be either executed or at least castrated

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on January 15, 2009

Bastard Complete Bastard

Bastard Complete Bastard

I highly doubt that this post will be humorous or witty. In fact this post is written at the worst time a post can be written. The words you are presently reading are being typed when I’m seething with anger. I will not revise it nor retract anything from it even after I’ve calmed down.

Most of you know who Dave Meggett is. He’s been a part of a Super Bowl winning team, played under Coach Bill Parcells on three different occasions, was a two time NFL Pro Bowler, his 3,708 punt return yards are currently the second most in NFL history and he even won the Walter Payton Award in 1988.

Not a bad resume for a piece of shit excuse of a human being. You see it is my firm belief that Meggett is also a borderline serial rapist, he hasn’t already crossed over to being a serial rapist.

In 1990, while with the Giants, Meggett was also charged with lewdness after allegedly soliciting sex from an undercover Baltimore police officer; he was later found not guilty of those charges. In 1995, he was charged with assaulting a former girlfriend; the charges were dropped. Meggett was released by the New England Patriots in 1998 after being accused of sexually assaulting and robbing a prostitute in a Toronto hotel room; the sexual assault charge was later dropped by prosecutors. He was again accused of sexual assault in June 2001 in Charleston, South Carolina by a woman that he met in a bar. In 2004, Meggett surrendered to Dedham, Massachusetts authorities for failing to produce $191,600 that he owed in child support.

On September 1st, 2006, he was formally charged with the Second Degree Rape of his girlfriend. A month later, amid the charges, he resigned his post as the parks and recreation director of Robersonville, North Carolina. He was convicted of sexual battery and given two years probation in the case.

Let’s stop right there. Two years probation? That’s all?

In September 2008, he was charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct after a 17-year-old North Charleston woman accused him of raping her and released on bond.

Now several months after he was charged with raping a South Carolina woman, former NFL running back David Meggett was in jail Wednesday on allegations of another sexual assault.

This time it was a 21-year-old woman in her North Charleston home.

“The latest victim told police she woke up at 1 a.m. Tuesday and found a man she knew as “Mike” sitting on her bed, according to an incident report. The man demanded that she repay $200 she owed him and raped her when she said she didn’t have the money.

Afterward, the man told her he was sorry and that she didn’t have to repay him. The woman drove herself to the hospital, where Meggett later met her and was arrested, according to police records.”

In the case involving the  17-year-old North Charleston woman, she also knew Meggitt as “Mike.”

He was denied bond on charges of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and first-degree burglary (thank God!), said Spencer Pryor, spokesman for the North Charleston police. He was being held Wednesday in the Charleston County jail, and it was unclear if he had an attorney.

I have a serious problem with the fact this slime bucket was allowed out on bond for rape charges when he was already on probation for rape. Hello? Justice System? Anyone fucking home?

I’m not an unreasonable man however it is my belief that if a person is proven to be a rapist, child molester or exploits children through child pornography, then that person should be executed end of story. I say proven because unfortunately there are false accusations such as the Duke Lacrosse team so I truly mean proven. I’m saying Meggett should be executed right now…however given his past, is there really much doubt?

I’m being serious. I know I’ll get some hate e-mail from that statement, so be it. It’s easier to forgive almost any crime than those three, and I personally will NOT forgive Dave Meggett for his actions or the South Carolina Judicial System for allowing him to post bail on a charge that he was currently on probation for and convicted of in the neighboring state.

Victims of rape are severely traumatized by the assault and may have difficulty functioning as well as they had been used to prior to the assault, with disruption of concentration, sleeping patterns and eating habits, for example. They may feel jumpy or be on edge. After being raped it is common for the victim to experience Acute Stress Disorder, including symptoms similar to those of posttraumatic stress disorder, such as intense, sometimes unpredictable, emotions, and they may find it hard to deal with their memories of the event. In the months immediately following the assault these problems may be severe and very upsetting and may prevent the victim from revealing their ordeal to friends or family, or seeking police or medical assistance. Additional symptoms of Acute Stress Disorder include:

  • depersonalization or dissociation (feeling numb and detached, like being in a daze or a dream, or feeling that the world is strange and unreal)
  • difficulty remembering important parts of the assault
  • reliving the assault through repeated thoughts, memories, or nightmares
  • avoidance of things, places, thoughts, and/or feelings that remind the victim of the assault
  • anxiety or increased arousal (difficulty sleeping, concentrating, etc.)
  • avoidance of social life or place of rape

For one-third to one-half of the victims, these symptoms continue beyond the first few months and meet the conditions for the diagnosis of posttraumatic stress disorder. In general, rape and sexual assault are among the most common causes of PTSD in women.

In other words rape has the ability to DESTROY the victim. Someone close to me was raped about ten years ago. To this day she hasn’t fully recovered and chances are she never will.

Rape is about control and has nothing to do with the victim’s sexuality or promiscuity. it is about the attackers use of force to control their victim physically emotionally & mentally .

Now I know some of you are going to e-mail me and say something to extent of “with therapy a rapist can be helped”, and that might be true…however statistically even after these cowards go through therapy the majority repeat this unforgivable crime.

I’ve ranted enough about this and I’m sorry if you didn’t like this post, but I at least feel better, but I’m still mad as hell.

Joel’s Crappy Weekend

Posted by Joel Jackson on December 17, 2008

Saturday

-Kid wakes up at 6:30 am, thus killing any dreams of having a lazy Saturday morning. A feeling suddenly comes over me, telling me that today will not be a good day for the home team.

-I almost lose my little girl at the park around 10:30 am. I now feel like a “Father of the Year” candidate. I took my eye off of her for 5.8 seconds to answer my cell phone & she was gone. Luckily, she walked over to the mounted cop’s horse. Instantly, I was relieved and told her not to give the horse candy. We didn’t want to end up like Kenny from Half Baked.

-Watch the Memphis Tigers give the game away to Georgetown in OT. They need a point guard in the worst way.

-Kentucky beat Indiana, thus killing my sweet Billy Clyde/Hoosiers I had thought about. Bastards.

-Got into it with the better half. Guys, always remember that women, although beautiful creatures, are mean and vicious when they choose to be. After arguing, it was couch duty for me. Life sucks.

-I found out Candace Parker married that monkey looking Duke boy, thus killing my dream of me and Candace…wait,I am already doing couch duty. Let me shut up.

Are they talking about book smarts or street smarts?

Plax would’ve scored higher, but he missed the question about how 3.25 million is a very large number.

Glocks & Athletes Are Not A Good Combination

Posted by Joel Jackson on December 1, 2008

I was well prepared to talk about Tennessee hiring Lane Kiffin and what I thought of it. I along with millions of other Volunteer fans have my opinion, but I want to spend this time to talk about a troubling trend the past, oh, 14 years or so. I am about to do my best Jason Whitlock impersonation, except I am not as big, well-known, or paid.

I have known and/or met quite a few pro athletes in my day. By and large, the ones that I have met are down to earth guys, trying to improve themselves in the sport that they play. They are trying to improve themselves so they can improve their bank accounts. For the athletes that have come from little to nothing growing up, they try to help out family and friends along their journey to fame and fortune. This cycle can lead to problems.

To the athletes reading this blog, please do the following couple of things for me:

*Leave the guns at home…

I am watching the Redskins vs. Giants game. Ironic because on this day, where the Redskins are honoring fallen teammate Sean Taylor, who was murdered in his home a year ago, Plaxico Burress is facing weapons charges because he decided to go “Cheddar Bob” on his thigh while carrying a handgun illegally (or he wanted to be on the next diss record of Eminem, 50 Cent, and Busta Rhymes). If the club was such a bad place to be, then why go??? He’s married (to a lawyer) and has a young son. Why put yourself through now facing jail time over seeing some ass shaking at the club, and get teammate Antonio Pierce involved??? Stephen Jackson, Jamaal Tinsley, and Marvin Harrison would agree. If you are about to go somewhere and you think that you need a gun, then don’t go. If I need a gun to go to my local Quickie Mart for a chocolate squishy, then I won’t be seeing Apu that night. Which leads me to the next point…

*Do not own more than 3 guns…

A wise man once told me that if you are gonna own a gun for home protection, get 3. One should be a handgun that you can grab quickly (Glock), one should be a rifle or shotgun, and one should be a small pistol that your woman could shoot in a pinch (.22 or .38). Whether this is wise or not, I think this is sound advice. In other words, do not be Tank Johnson. And if you wanna be a rapper, PLEASE do not be T.I.

ti_gun_collection_101707

*Last, everyone is not out to get you…

Unless you allow yourself to be associated with bad people, not everyone is out to get you. Yes, crime is everywhere, and what happened to Sean Taylor was a tragedy not of his doing, but of 4 kids who wanted to take a short cut at getting ahead. At the same time, you athletes for the most part have more money than I will ever see. Use some of that to invest in a security company and let bodyguards carry the weapons. Because if you pull a Plax and not have that concealed handgun license, you could shoot yourself at 3 a.m., or face jail time. And please don’t rob any convenience stores…

Broken Plays: Does Tennessee actually have a new coach edition

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on November 26, 2008

First let me start with saying there will be no update for Thursday since it will be Thanksgiving. I plan on spending the day rooting against the Cowboys and enjoying time with family and friends.

But you never know…I might break away and post something….maybe

Well the hottest rumor abound is that Tennessee is planning on announcing that Lane Kiffin will the new football coach on December 1st. If that is the case then I’m staking my claim right here, right now that from that day on out he shall be known as King Kiffin. ™ Ooh…look a trademark logo.

It is not know how Al Davis will react to the news. Let’s see…

If this picture came at me in 3D, I'd be spending the afternoon shopping for a new pair of pants.

Wow…I’m speechless. Speaking of Al Davis how would you like to him in 3-D? According to the Wall Street Journal, the NFL has announced that the Dec. 4 game between the Chargers and Raiders will be broadcast live in 3-D to theaters in Los Angeles, New York and Boston. The three screenings – for NFL and consumer electronics executives only – are a “preliminary step” toward what could be regular 3-D broadcasts throughout the NFL schedule.

My thoughts are l Davis in 3-D isn’t a technological advancement, it’s a threat.

Keeping with the NFL Newsday is reporting that the league is looking why Brandon Jacobs was inactive for the past game against Arizona. Zona’s complaint steams from the fact the Giants deactivated him hours before game-time on Sunday after he was listed as probable on Friday. Call it whining if you want, but the NFL requires teams to fill out an injury reports for a reason.

Tom Coughlin was not happy to be asked about this allegation either.

“I don’t know what you are trying to stir up or what you are trying to say, but we did everything the right way,” he said. “I really believed that he would play and then he felt like he wasn’t going to be able to contribute. So then we logged every issue every day. So there was no hidden … What was our mistake? Listing him as probable? We did think he was probable.”

Apparently the wife of the University of Tennessee President John Petersen is well either a bit caddy or just a bitch. I’m sure somehow this is all Fulmer’s fault. Is the picture a mug shot, I mean she does look somewhat unstable.

Another school is looking for a coach. The University of Washington is rumored to plan on going after Les “Big hat, little penis” Miles. Ummm….can we say “Not a chance in hell?”

This time of year always marks what is known as the college coaching carousel. It also marks the time when we realize that Terry Bowden jockeys himself into position to fail. This year might looks like he really wants the San Diego State job.

“I don’t know much about San Diego State, but I am receptive to the right opportunity,” said Bowden, who has been working in broadcasting since last coaching in 1998. “I’d be glad to talk to people at San Diego State if they would like to. I really would.”

You it’s not like he sounds desperate…OK I lied it is.

The University of Michigan finally get a much needed victory when official at the Detroit Zoo make a Buckeye piñata and feed to a wolverine. I’m sure Michigan fans are wondering why they couldn’t have thrown RichRod in there also.

If South Carolina ever plays Oregon State I’m sure I will get to write:

‘Cocks finally get a victory when officials at the Columbia, SC zoo throw a beaver into the ‘cocks enclosure, where the effigy was fucked to shreds. Poor delicious vagina. Thus inspired, South Carolina stormed out and lost to Oregon St 42-7.

Some people might remember Lenny Dykstra as outgoing. *Cough BS Cough* But at least he remains a classy figure in sports. Look at some of these quotes that Lenny had to say after he appeared in a Manhattan courtroom to fight over $139,000 owed to him by a Manhattan accounting firm.

“[They] folded like Mitch Williams in the ninth,” Dykstra said about the firm that sued him as he made reference to a former Phillie teammate who served the winning homer to the Blue Jays’ Joe Carter in the ’93 World Series. “There was no case. There was nothing.”

And

“That’s my f–in’ ashtray money, bro,” he told the New York Post, when asked about claims he owed a private jet company $7,000. “I don’t even know if I flew on their plane.”

Alright everyone, listen up. Here's my next big tip: If you bite of both ends, like so, it turns into a straw.

Stay classy Lenny!

I’m not done with Wednesday’s update yet quite yet….

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on October 1, 2008

This has been an extremely busy week for stories involving NFL players that aren’t necessarily related to the heroism players show each and every Sunday. In fact most of them are very un-hero like. There’s so many that I don’t possibly have the time to write about them all.

So instead of writing boring stories with humorous & snarky quips, I’m just going to write a few lines and link them. After all that’s better nothing right? Yeah…that’s what I thought.

As we know former Tennessee God and Denver running back Travis “I gots 9 Mf’ing 9 kids” Henry’s baby mommas gots to get paid! Now since he is technically unemployed he decided to the next best thing and that is set up a drug deal involving cocaine.

Problem is he was busted. His new teammates Malice and Pusha T are disapointed and are dropping him from the Re Up Gang. Hey Henry remember don’t get Mile High on your own supply.

Terrell Owens still ♥’s his QB but hates “Sheshawn” Johnson.

“Then, Owens turned his attention to Johnson, who he referred to as “Sheshawn” on three separate occasions, the Star-Telegram reported.

(As the No. 1 overall pick in the 1996 draft) he is the ultimate underachiever on that (ESPN) panel. I am the reason he is in the booth,” Owens said. “Everybody is aware when I was brought to Dallas, he was the one they let go to get me here.”

And Sheshawn’s in the booth to replace Michael Irvin. ‘Cause Michael’s a crack head.

When Terrell ever gets fed up with Romo, ooh, what a nickname he has in store. Here’s a hint:

Remember when Steve Smith whipped Ken Lucas’s ass? Well now they are BFF’s forever!

“Smith scored his first touchdown of the season on a 54-yard pass from Jake Delhomme late in the second quarter, then presented the ball to Lucas on the sideline.”

Apparently Plaxico Burress has some issues with being tardy and is paying the price with fines. Sarah Palin’s daughter had that ‘late’ problem too, but mom wouldn’t let her throw money at her problem to take care of it. (Oh no I didn’t)

Eli Manning should hook Plaxico up with one of his Citizen watches.

Some people took the Georgia loss real hard over the weekend. Danny Ware a former Georgia player and current New York Giants running back took it extremely hard by getting drunk and arrested.

Ware and a 24-year-old Dallas woman attracted a police officer’s attention at about 2:25 a.m. Sunday at East Clayton Street near North Jackson Street because they seemed oblivious to traffic that had to steer around them as they stood in the street talking, according to police.

Ware admitted that he’d been drinking, and a breath test showed he had a blood-alcohol content of 0.152 grams, police said.

Lovely he wasn’t even driving he was just trying to get a hook up for later. I wonder if he feels worse about Georgia losing or the fact he’s a drunken pedestrian that was busted while wearing temporary Bulldog tattoos stuck to his face (“cheek flair”) which adds another level of humiliation.

This one is a little old however I meant to write about it. Apparently even though Pacman Jones broke the law several times, players on the Titians still respected him more than they respect Vince Young…you know the “leader” of the team.

“Vince definitely is going to have to win the locker room back. As bad as Pacman was when he left the building or at 3 o’clock in the morning, it never interfered with his football. He loved football. Loved practice. The guys loved him. Players are going to be on your side if you show that you’re going to help them win. Vince has to prove that to this team.”

Further proof that football players care mostly about whether their teammates are helping them win, something Young was not doing.

Not only does he have to worry if Terrell Owens will finally blow his lid but Jerry Jones must pay $25,000 to NFL for flapping his mouth about Ed Hochuli. Terrell Owens just laughs and laughs.

I’ll show love to baseball as well.

Even though he no longer coaches the Dodgers some people in San Francisco harbor ill feelings towards Tommy Lasorda by getting all pissy because he’s the grand marshal in the Italian American parade.

Supervisor Michela Alioto-Pier wants organizers of the San Francisco Italian American parade to boot Tommy Lasorda as grand marshal … He’s the former manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers, who’ve had “an intense rivalry” with our hometown Giants for years and “nobody embodies that more than Tommy Lasorda,” states the resolution … The Giants aren’t doing so great, it continues, and “Dodger fans are boastful and smug.”

For someone in San Francisco to call another person smug is rather hypocritical. Of course maybe they would prefer Joe Torre instead.

Everyone knows Eddie Vedder recorded a song for the Chicago Cubs right? Not to be left out the Tampa Bay Devil Rays have to have a song as well. However the best they could muster was Kevin Costner and his band “Modern West” penning them a diddy titled “It’s All Up To You.”

The song can be heard here, but be forewarned that one listen may cause cerebral hemorrhaging, blindness & the sudden love of shitty music.

Just in case you want to sing along, though:

“You got to swing for the fence, give a hundred percent,

“Dust yourself off, get up and do it again.

“You’re the only one that can make your dreams come true.

“You’re the only one, it’s all up to you.”

And now a look at the NFC teams after week 2

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on September 17, 2008

NFC East

  • Dallas Cowboys: I hate this team but I’ll give them credit they’re good, The mindset is Super Bowl or bust however the defense isn’t as stout like people think they are.
  • New York Giants: Eli and company are not going to sneak up on everyone like last year however right now they are playing with swagger.
  • Philadelphia Eagles: This is the best Eagles team there has been in years. They will rebound from the recent loss to Dallas. Let’s hope Desean Jackson got stuffed in a locker last Monday night after that dumbass move of dropping the ball before he broke the plain.

  • Washington Redskins: Stout defense and the offense is coming around. This might be the toughest division in football next to the SEC East.

NFC North

  • Green Bay Packers: Brett who? Rogers is playing well enough to make people forget about the previous QB.

  • Minnesota Vikings: Winless…the QB sucks but they have the talent to turn it around.
  • Chicago Bears: Notice how much better this team is since Rex Grossman is not QB. Nasty Defense.
  • Detroit Lions: Still suck. John Kitna desperately wants to be a Packer since he threw more balls to them in the fourth quarter then he did to his own team

NFC South

  • New Orleans Saints: I think there needs to be a national Reggie Bush taunting day. If Bush doesn’t grow up and have a break out season this year, consider him a bust.
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Gruden loves his QB’s but I question the decision to sit Garcia over Griese. Nevertheless they are looking good so far.
  • Carolina Panthers: What a surprise they have been so far and just think they have yet to play a game with the ass-kicking Steve Smith.
  • Atlanta Falcons: Actually beat Detroit during their first game, but then again it Detroit. However I believe they will be better than last year.

NFC West:

  • Seattle Seahawks: Winless…and things aren’t looking up they are so desperate for wide receivers they are thinking about signing Koren Robinson.
  • Arizona Cardinals: Kurt Warner looks like the Kurt Warner of old. Teams better pay attention to this team.
  • San Francisco 49ers: Still a sorry team but a better team than last year.
  • St. Louis Rams: The sorriest of the sorry. The coach was put on notice yesterday. He should save face and resign.

Tiki Barber dropping the C-Bomb on NBC

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on August 22, 2008

Tiki Barber is perhaps the world’s most bitter former NFL running back. Imagine retiring early and then criticizing Tom Coughlin in an interview with Newsday by saying:

“Tom is the way he is; he’s not going to change, and that’s fine,” Barber said. “Just as it’s his prerogative to coach that way and treat people the way he does, it’s my prerogative to do something else and give you a reason why.”

“If I was lying, if I said, ‘Tom was a great guy,’ that he said, ‘Tiki, I know you’re hurt, take a day off,’ or if we screwed up he didn’t yell at me and said, ‘OK, Tiki,’ with positive reinforcement, then I’d be lying and I’d be wrong,” Barber added.

And course slamming the Coughlin, the Giants owners and even the fans in his book Tiki: My Life in the Game and Beyond.

“[Coughlin] robbed me of what had been one of the most important things I had in my life, which was the joy I felt playing football,” Barber wrote. “I had lost that. He had taken it away.”

“The fans normally only see me suited up on Sunday,” Barber wrote. “They never witness the agony of Monday morning, or all the muscle-straining workouts, the practices, the blood, the sweat, and tears it takes to walk out onto the field.”

Of course Tiki takes some credit for the Giants super bowl win even though by that time he was just another former jock announcer.

“I feel great joy for them because I know in a lot of ways I helped a lot of guys on that team,” Barber said. “I know Brandon [Jacobs] was someone who benefited from me being there; even criticizing someone is a way of getting them to think about themselves.”

Of course Tiki couldn’t stop while he was ahead. On January 3rd this year before the Giants were crowned champions again, Tiki elected to slam Eli Manning.

“Eli’s got a strong arm. I know he’s been really maligned this year. You watch him on film, it seems like he’s going through a process the right way, making the right decisions. Sometimes he just throws some bad balls,” Ronde said yesterday in a phone conversation with The Post. “I don’t know the reasons for that. He can be had, we know that.”

He can be had?

“Just look at his percentage,” Barber said. “At the end of the day, your numbers don’t lie, and at the end of the day, you are what you put on film. Obviously, this team’s got a whole bunch of talent, and Eli’s got a whole bunch of talent behind him. He just doesn’t show it all the time.”

This brings us to today. I know that you know that Tiki knows he is rather bitter and embarrassed.

In the video below you’ll notice that Barber is talking to Jenna Wolfe and Brian Williams. Wolfe made a comment about Barber not having a Super Bowl ring, and shortly thereafter Williams made a comment about the Olympic “medal count.” At the 28 second mark on the video listen closely because it sounds like Barber said what sounded to be the dreaded C-word. I’m sure it was a Freudian slip directed to Wolfe after he felt that she had insulted him or he is still feeling like a jackass.

Is Jeremy Shockey a Dick or just a Bitch?

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on June 9, 2008

Jeremy Shockey is threatening not to show up for the New York Giants’ mini-camp this week due to the fact he’s acting like a complete dick or maybe a little bitch. I haven’t decided on which one yet.

“Who knows? I might go to see my mother in Texas. I have no idea,” Shockey said.

Shockey, in New York for a promotional event, shared his crybaby gripes with reporters.

“Unlike the Giants, I’m going to be quiet,” he said. “They’ve released multiple things about myself and if you look back into the media, there’s always a source. Well, I’d like to know who this source is and we’ll go over here and we’ll deal with it ourselves, because I haven’t said one negative thing toward the Giants in the newspapers.”

Shockey was making his first public comments since breaking his leg in December. The Giants went on to beat the Patriots to win the Super Bowl. Afterward, Shockey was a no-show for the team’s victory parade in New York, its visit to the White House and its championship ring ceremony.

So let’s get this straight: he gets injured, misses the rest of the season, Giants go and win the Super Bowl anyway, he skips all of the celebrations, and then might not come to mandatory mini camp. If I were in his position I’d be more concerned about just making the team than anything that has been said about me.

In the weeks leading up to the draft, the New Orleans Saints and several other teams approached the Giants about a trade for the oft-injured Pro Bowler. The Giants listened, but that was it.

Shockey has told friends that he is unhappy with his role, his contract and the notion that the Giants were better without him after he broke his leg in Week 15 because Eli Manning didn’t have the burden of having to pass the ball to Shockey to keep him happy.

How does breaking a leg and missing the playoff run entitle Shockey to a raise one year into a 5 year deal? This guy will never be happy; dumping him would be addition by subtraction.

If he does attend the mini-camp, Shockey said he’ll be limited.

“Obviously. I’m not 100 percent and if I do show to minicamp, it’s going to be, I wouldn’t imagine me doing much, just getting treatment on my leg,” Shockey told reporters.

When he was healthy he ran incorrect routes, dropped numerous passes and pulled childish antics on the sideline. Whined that he wasn’t being used properly and the Giants had a not so terrific offense. He breaks his leg and the next thing we see is the Giants going into Dallas and winning, going to Green Bay and winning, and down to Arizona and laughing at the rest of the NFL. Shockey isn’t the invaluable commodity he thinks he is. The team has won without him. So give him a crying towel and send him somewhere else.

I thought only the receivers were Divas. Shockey was supposed to be a tough guy. The Giants fans are disappointed in him. He should be happy to honor his contract. No one from the Giants was bad mouthing him. His feeling seem hurt because they won a title without him. Grow up.
