Talk about backtracking. Yesterday, Bart Scott didn’t care what Jets fans thought. Mainly because he is a professional athlete and those fans probably got picked last in a dodgeball game.
His words, not ours.
But now all of sudden, Scott has had a change of heart. He now wants to express how much respect he has for Jets fans. And he wants them all to know that his earlier comments were just him being defensive.
“I have a tremendous amount of respect for fans and what they do and the sacrifices that they make,” Scott said on Thursday. “And I’m aware of that.”
As for the dodgeball crack, Scott even walks that back too.
“That’s a generalization,” Scott said. “I’m sure there’s some great athletes out there. I’m sure there’s some great people that could have played . That was a generalization… me being defensive, protecting my teammates and the things that they have to deal with. I couldn’t care less. I’ve heard it all. I just felt bad for my teammates.”
