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.
