Demand Com. Goodell punish the N.Y. Jets for Tampering
The NFL's anti-tampering policy states, "Any public or private statement of interest, qualified or unqualified, in another club's player to that player's agent or representative, or to a member of the news media, is a violation of this Anti-Tampering Policy. (Example of a prohibited comment: 'He's an excellent player, and we'd very much like to have him if he were available, but another club holds his rights.') In addition, speculation by a club owner, executive, or employee on whether a player under contract to a second club may play for a third club in the future may negatively impact the relationship between the player and the club currently holding his rights. If comments are found to have adversely affected that relationship, a finding of tampering can result. All clubs should be aware that improper disclosure of confidential trade discussions with another club may be a violation of this section on prohibited public statements."
The owner of the N.Y. Jets has already been warned once for tampering this season. Woody Johnson admitted to tampering with Darrelle Revis during his press conference about the firings of his head coach and general manager. The fans of the NFL and New England Patriots DEMAND that Commissioner Goodell do his job and not only fine the N.Y. Jets for tampering, but also force the N.Y. Jets to swap first round picks with the Patriots for tampering an Elite Cornerback that is under contract with the New England Patriots.
If Commissioner Goodell does not do his job and punish the N.Y. Jets for tampering, then we the fans vote no confidence and ask for a new Commissioner that will enforce the rules and laws of the National Football League.
