Jets Blogger Has Lost His MindApril 10th, 2013
Joe Caporoso, the owner/operator and editor of the Jets blog TurnOnTheJets.com, must really be suffering from cabin fever in the worst way.
Why? Because he is beginning to sound like a man grasping in vain for a flotation device as he struggles to keep his head above water before succumbing to the sea.
Caporoso claims Jets general manager John Idzik is going to successfully blackmail Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik not just for this year’s No. 13 pick, but for up to four draft picks total in return for cornerback Darrelle Revis or else Idzik will turn in Dominik for tampering.
@TurnOnTheJets: Re: the tampering discussion on Bucs/Revis – They are fair points but I think Idzik wouldn’t go public with the charges but would rather [p]ressure the Bucs behind the scenes to get as much as possible out of the trade for Revis, which I’m guessing happens in the next 7-10 days … Maybe he throws in a tampering charge threat behind the scenes to get another draft pick but I doubt he goes public with filing process [y]ou aren’t going to burn the bridge with your only trading partner, when you could get 3-4 picks from them
This is so absurd, Joe doesn’t know where to begin. Joe has written time and again that if anything, it is Dominik who has Idzik boxed in, not the other way around. Dominik and the Bucs do not need Revis. It’s really that simple. Now that the Bucs signed Eric Wright, Dominik drafts two corners in the first two days of the draft and the secondary issue is wrapped up. Done.
Does Caporoso really believe Idzik would try to shake down and strong-arm Dominik for four picks, including the No. 13 selection, or he will run to NFL
warden commissioner Roger Goodell? And what crime exactly is Idzik going to cry to Goodell about that the Bucs committed That the Bucs linked to an NFL Network video on their site? Really? Really?
Or that somehow it’s a cardinal sin to talk to Vincent Jackson’s agent, who just by coincidence is also Revis’ agent?
Caporoso seems like a good guy. And he has a helluva blog. But is sure seems like Caporoso needs some Florida warmth and sunshine. Cabin fever really screws with your mind, man.
It is really this simple: If Idzik is catching heat from Jets owner Woody Johnson, Dominik has Idzik over a barrel.
