    In some ways I don't get why the NY media has turned on Tiki. When he first came to NY the media loved him because he was deemed bright and articulate and a good quote.

    Now all those same good quotes allow some to paint Tiki as the bad guy.

    I don't get it.

    Seriously, any athlete that can utter a grammatically sounding sentence is deemed articulate, and when they can utter 2 such sentences in a row, they are deemed bright.

    The tragedy of it all, is the scarcity of them, not the misnomer.

    Perhaps it's because he spoke so poorly of Eli; won't let up on Coughlin; and has essentially outed himself as a liar for his reasons behind leaving the team.

    And that was just his first two weeks on the air.
  6. On the other hand, anyone who calls out Coach Nutty is OK by me.

    I like him. I envy him his enormous teeth. It's like a trip to Finland.

    Those tiki torches much be kept lit.

    Those seeds must be kept warm.

    Gilligan, if those seeds die, WE DIE!

    Seriously about this, I think the NY media, as with some on here, are tired of Barber always being the smartest guy in the room in his own mind.

    The media isn't turming on Tiki. He's doing this all by/to himself.

    The country is turning on him because most folks don't think it's a good look for men to be pouting drama queens.
