In the latest development of the story that may never end, Bart Scott is unahppy with LaDainian Tomlinson after Tomlinson accused him of being one of the anonymous New York Jets players who ripped Tim Tebow earlier this week. L.T said on Wednesday that he believes Antonio Cromartie was the player who called Tebow “terrible” while Scott was the one who said the Wildcat would never work with Tebow running it. Scott said Tomlinson should stop the guessing and finger-pointing. “That can’t be farther from the truth,” the Jets linebacker told the NY Post on Thursday. “One thing about me is I ain’t ever hid behind (junk) that I’ve ever said. I’m not afraid to put my name to it, go to a person and say it to them. “Why would I have those comments and then have another article about we’re a family? The same day, am I bipolar? LaDainian is out of line in thinking I have that type of character. I don’t know what he believes I showed to him when he was here. If anything, I hope I showed him I was a leader and I never try to be a distraction.” At a charity event on Tuesday, Scott was quoted as saying the Jets are a family and that they would stick together to overcome adversity. Unless Tomlinson is going off more than just his gut instinct and a complete guess, I agree with Scott that he is out of line to point the finger. As for the anonymous players themselves, Scott doesn’t sound convinced that they exist. “I’ve been here four years,” he said. “It’s always an anonymous source. An anonymous source can be the janitor. An anonymous source can be the cable guy. An anonymous source can be the equipment guy. Anybody can be an anonymous source. If you don’t tell them to put their name to it, what credibility do you have? “I think the anonymous person is probably some smoke in the air or a fart off somebody’s (butt).” An anonymous source can be anyone, but the NY Daily News‘ Manish Mehta was specific in mentioning which quotes and comments came from actual players. Mehta is a reputable reporter for the Jets, so I highly doubt he would completely fabricate quotes just to create a good story. I believe that someone actually said it, but that doesn’t give Tomlinson the right to ruin reputations by speculating as to who. Photo credit: The Star-Ledger-US PRESSWIRE
