Freeman’s sources all pointed to the 12-year child and the loaded handgun in the car as two major concerns regarding the incident.
We’ll have more details regarding Richardson as the news is available.

NJ Gov. Chris Christie rips Jets writer over Rex Ryan press conference

For all the legitimately interesting preseason action that happened this weekend, the only thing anyone cares about is Rex Ryan's press conference meltdown from Saturday night. It was questions from the New York Daily News' Manish Mehta about playing Mark Sanchez late in a meaningless game that sent Rex over the top and now Mehta's feeling a little heat as well.

Specifically from, of all places, the freaking Governor of New Jersey. Yes, that's right. Noted Dallas football fan Chris Christie is not happy with the way Mehta conducted himself in the Ryan press conference and he let that be known while sitting in with WFAN's Boomer and Carton show Monday.

"Idiot. The guy's a complete idiot. Self-consumed, underpaid, reporter. The only reason he's empowered is we're spending all this time this morning talking about Manish Mehta who, by the way, I couldn't pick out of a lineup," Christie said. "And no Jet fan really gives a damn about Manish Mehta."

First off, I'm pretty sure a lot of Jets fans DO care what Manish has to say, since, you know, he covers the Jets for a living and generally has very good information on them. (Full disclosure: I really like Manish. He's a very nice guy. I don't know Chris Christie.) Secondly, Christie's probably cheesed off about "unnamed Jets" that always pop up in the media talking smack about other players. It's the nature of the business.

Third, whatever you might think about the way Mehta handled the press conference, just please remember this is the New York media market. Ryan and I talked about this on the Monday's podcast, but the reality is it's a cutthroat city to live in if you're covering football. You can't just kick back and hope the quotes come to you.

And finally, YOU'RE A COWBOYS FAN, CHRIS CHRISTIE. But by all means, please continue.

"That's my point. It shouldn't be about that. It should be about the Sanchez decision," Christie said. "We shouldn't be giving this DOPE the amount of airtime we've given him already."

So basically Christie doesn't care for Mehta, huh? I'll give the Governor one point: he does know a thing or two about standing in front of the press and being badgered by reporters.

“As somebody who stands in front of the press asking you questions, what's he supposed to say at that point?" Christie said. "He tried to defend the decision, and people keep yelling at him, so he had enough of the BS. He's like, ‘Enough, I've given you my answer.' There comes a point, Craig, sometimes, with you people in the media, where you just have to say, ‘Hey, that's my answer. You think it's stupid, you don't like it, then say that. But leave me alone.'”

That's a fair point. Here's my counterpoint: Rex doesn't deflect the questions well enough. Do you see people doing this to Tom Coughlin? Or Bill Belichick? Hell no. Those guys stonewall the media or get angry enough that people relax with the line of questioning.

Rex looked like he was teetering on the edge of going Full Jim Mora on us and ranting about something insane. He came pretty close with the whole backward dance thing.

And it's only the preseason, which means we should be seeing a lot of this moving forward. Unless Christie can pass some law that bans Manish from Rex's pressers.


It must take a special type of idiot sports writer to be ripped by the Governor of New Jersey.

I don't. In fact I follow Seth Walder on twitter and even though Seth seems to like Manish, Manish is just Seth's, and everyoine else's, Mynah Bird. When Manish does have an original thought he is usually wrong. I'm very close to unfollowing Seth because sometimes he retweets Manish's retweets. Manish was on Sirius NFL Radio the other day. They interview beat writers to get inside information or just things they havent heard or reported themselves. Manish had nothing original to offer.. He and the rest of the NY press core are a bunch sound byte grubbing tabloid whores. Thier one and only purpose is to represent the fans and ask the questions we can't. Not push the person at the potium over the edge. I'm reminded of the playoff game Joba Chamberlain pitched in when he was overcome by lake flies in Cleveland. Thats how Rex most likely felt.

I got to give it Christie. He's a Cowboys fan, but he attacks the Jets beat writer that many Jets fans can't stand....during an election year. He's a great politician, he really knows how to tap into the way his constituency is thinking. The Jets always came off to me as the more blue collar team between them and the Giants. And Christie probably knows that. He almost had me buying his act though...or maybe he's being honest and I'm just too cynical.


It's funny Christie called somebody else "self-consumed." Coming from the guy who scheduled the special election for the senate three weeks before the already scheduled November election. All because he didn't want to be on the same ballot as Cory Booker, who would've drawn more Democrats to the polls and hurt his (Christie's) chances of a landslide victory. This is all after he said he wouldn't waste tax payer's money doing that (having two elections close together).

I no longer follow or pay attention to Manish. He has become a shock jock type of reporter.

Christie is going to be the next President. That "I don't give a damn" comment during Sandy is going to be the soundbyte that carries him to the White House. Since Mr Jet doesn't care about candidates, but just wants the Dems to win he's just sharpenning up on his hate.

Chris Christie is too thin skinned to be able to successfully withstand the scrutiny a two year presidential campaign. If he can't even handle a teacher in a town hall meeting without having a temper tantrum; there is no way he could handle the mud national Republicans or the Clinton machine would throw at him. No that "f*** you I'll shake hands with whomever I want" attitude towards the Obama haters in the Republican party isn't going to help him in Iowa and South Carolina in 2016. The only reason Christie won in 2009 was because Jon Corzine is a corrupt piece of shit that even I wouldn't have even voted for. And even then he only beat Corzine by less than 100,000 votes with almost 2.5 million total votes cast. But maybe you're right the guy who praised and thanked President Obama for his help is going to win over the "he was born in Kenya" crowd in the GOP primaries. :rolleyes:

But it's cute that you think you know who the next president will be. In 2005 most people thought it was going to be Hillary Clinton versus Rudy 9iul1an1 in 2008. Right now I'm more concerned about the waterboy down in Florida than I am about Sherman Klump over in New Jersey.

So true. Unfortunately, there are too many scumbags and illegals allowed to vote so Christie will not win the White House. Too many people with their hands out and Killary will just go on giving it to them like the douchebag we currently have. Christie is too genuine and tells people like it is so he will unfortunately not win the presidency. If only he would, the country could actually begin a comeback but that won't happen for at least another 6 years. We're still stuck with bozo for another 2 and then the "entitlement" generation will only vote in another idiot that'll raise the national debt another 6 trillion in their first 4 yrs following O-dipshit's lead.

As for Manish........he's ALMOST as big of a joke as the Pretender-In-Chief.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

When someone annoys u, it takes 42 muscles in ur face 2 frown. BUT, it only takes 4 muscles 2 extend ur arm & b!tch-slap that mother@*?!&! upside the head!!

Yeah that's why he's called "no drama Obama." Show me an example of a tantrum he's thrown. Show me. I've never heard him tell somebody to shut up or call somebody an idiot. But I'd love to see some proof of all those tantrums he's thrown since he's the alleged king of them.

So on and so forth.. Again your wrong...

Quote

A tantrum or temper tantrum is an emotional outbreak, usually associated with children or those in emotional distress, that is typically characterized by stubbornness, crying, screaming, defiance, angry ranting, a resistance to attempts at pacification and, at some cases, hitting. Physical control may be lost, the person may be unable to remain still, and even if the "goal" of the person is met he or she may not be calmed.[1][2][3][4][5] A tantrum may be expressed in a tirade: a protracted, angry, or violent speech.[1][2]
