And then shown time and time again on ESPN and soundbytes on radio stations and every other media outlet that aren't adult-specific.
Then you can blame those radio stations and ESPN for airing those. I mean we're sitting here acting like it's the most dramatic thing that has ever happened on Hard Knocks. It's all just media hype and the only reason it has become so dramatic is because they chose to run with it. The public is eating it up, too. Then outlets took the story and ran with it.
Fact is this- kids weren't there when he was going off like that. The only things that were there were players and adults filming for an adult television show. I don't know how it's possible to argue that. In the first place, I'm more than willing to bet he wasn't the one who made the decision to have Hard Knocks a part of the Jets organization. It was probably the Jets owners with some form of approval from him and of course from HBO.
As far as Legarette Blount goes he was not a player. He was a free agent who had never been signed. Dungy didn't have any obligation as a member of the NFL to support him and you could even build a case that he was meddling with the league by using his insider contacts to get Blount a job. I'm fine with that, I'm just saying. That's not a topic that can just be brushed aside as "his job". It was extracurricular.
I mean, I understand how you could feel the need to defend Dungy considering what he did for your favorite football team, but I, like others, have found it kind of annoying for some reason or another. In that same light, I can say that it's all good if you think Rex Ryan was out of line and/or annoying. So in the end, much like other internet debates- it goes nowhere. LOL. But hell, I said my part and each is entitled to form his own opinion
