Smallthoughts: Rants and Raves


Rants: Rex Ryan …Rex being Rex can’t help himself taking a shot or two at the Jets his former team…

“I wasn’t the boss anymore, I was just a guy,” Ryan told MMQB. “Whether they want to say it or not, all of a sudden I became less important to the team.

“They were trying to pull away from me. Like it was my fault, somehow, that people identified the Jets with me, and that was a bad thing and not a good thing. I was just being who I was. From that point on I knew I wasn’t going to be long for that job.”

“I want success for [Jets owner] Woody Johnson, I do,” Ryan said. “But don’t kid yourself — we’re gonna try to kick the s— out of them when we bring our team in. We’re going to try to whip your ass. There are people in that organization who are going to be lifelong friends to me. But this is my damn football family now.”

News flash to Rex…Jets are looking forward to the challenge.They are going to be looking to kick the s…out of your team too. It should be fun this season in the AFC East.

Rants: Jenry Mejia…suspended for 80 games which is half a season for PED use. Was it worth it? David Wright made it clear that he was holding Mejia accountable for letting the team down. “Not only do you cost yourself 80 games and don’t get paid, but you’re hurting everybody in here,” Wright said. “You’re letting down your teammates. That probably means just as much, if not more, than hurting yourself.

“He messed up, and he needs to be punished.” By the way how does a athlete who earns a living with their body not know what they are putting in it when they know they are being tested for steroids?

Rants: Golf experts …who are getting carried away with the performance of Jordan Spieth, let’s wait a minute or two and see if he is a flash in the pan or the real deal before he is anointed the next big thing and Golf and slam the door on Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson.

Raves : New York Mets …they needed to get off to a good start (6-3) of a 3 game sweep of the Phillies and in spite of an injury (David Wright) a suspension (Jenry Mejia) the Mets are getting clutch hits from Cuddyer and Duda and they are getting pitching and the Bullpen Is holding it’s own… Yes it is early but the signs are pointing up for the woe is me Mets.

Raves: New York Hockey…Both the Rangers and the Islanders are in the NHL Playoffs and New York fans will be crazy with passion if both teams meet in the second round of the playoffs.  The Islanders who have been awful for a long time now have a chance to give their fams reason to cheer loud and long , and the Rangers had Hockey’s best record this season winning the President’s trophy…so no hype needed if these two clash in round two

Raves:Kansas City Royals…Looks like the royals are legit. Picking up where they left off at in 2014 , the Royals are 7-2 a game behind the Tigers in the AL Central. Yes it is early but the arrow is point up for this franchise that had been downtrodden for most of the decade.
