Karma can be a you know what

Standard

Well checking out Pro Football Talk as usual for content a headline grabbed my eye in ??”Jay Mariotti arrested on a felony charge in L.A.”  The reason being I remember hearing that name before and if it is who I thought it was this one was going to be interesting.

After reading an old article from 2008 when Mariotti worked at the Chicago Sun-Times as the saying goes karma can be a you know what.

Mariotti was arrested for felony domestic assault in Venice, CA, which is ironic considering the way he left the Sun-Times.

In the article by movie critic Roger Ebert it is written that Mariotti signed a new contract, had the company pay a trip to Beijing, China, and then sent an email stating he is resigning.

He used and abused the Sun-Times and now his antics has finally caught up to him and if he is found guilty he is going to be the one that is going to be used and abused in jail.

In the end, as the saying goes treat people the way you want to be treated.

Who will blink first?

New York Jets cornerback Darrell Revis wants to become the highest paid cornerback in the National Football league, but the jets don’t want to pay that type of money.

The question is who will blink first?

According to reports Revis turned down a 10 year $120 million contract from the Jets. Revis is looking in excess of $165 as Oakland Riaders cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha makes $16.5 million a year, which is tops in the National Football League.

With no word coming out from either side about how contract talks are going along one can only assume that talks have stalled.

If Revis’s holdout continues into the regular season and the Jets continue to win games then Revis loses all his leverage.

Then again if the Jets are not as good on defense then Revis would gain leverage.

In the end, it all comes down to how the Jets perform this year.
