Jay Glazer, so far over the line he can't see it

    Yeah, I know, I know ... he's a talking head, not a real journalist even though he plays one on TV.

    But he's now involved with training NFL players!?! He's leading Leinart through MMA training. He did the same for Jared Allen last summer.

    This is incredible. Why hasn't more of a fuss been made about this?

    Ratings (for some shows) aside, so few people respect what Fox does in its various platforms and channels that questionable behavior is expected.

    If he's working as a player's trainer, then doesn't that make anything he reports on that player and his team suspect?

    don't mess with jay. he may be the most thin-skinned person in the biz and isn't above threatening to punch your lights out if you cross him. :eek: :eek: :eek:

    that said, he does a terrific job. but crossing lines has NEVER given him pause. he'll do anything he can to ingratiate himself to players, yet i also must commend him for having a good number of front-office sources, too.

    to wrap it up, jay is a tough nut to categorize. part ace journalist, part fanboi suckup. ::) ::) ::)

    He gets scoops. If he didn't get scoops or protected guys, he wouldn't be doing this.

    I throw up in my mouth every time I see him write "scoopage."

    Is he still BFF and running hills until he pukes with Tiki Barber?

    I don't know if readers give a crap about this kind of stuff any more ... which is kind of sad.

    Even worse, it appears management doesn't give a crap.

    agreed. they just want scoops, no matter what.

    exactly. the tv networks are all about scoops and access, not about pure "journalism." which is why they go by a different set of ethics and ground rules.

    not judging right or wrong here. just saying it's much different than print.
