Post Does anyone remember Jets Hard Knocks and Rob Turner?
The media acts soooooooooooooooooo surprised that players mess with each other, try to toughen each other up, etc. etc.

But does anyone remember the Jets "Hard Knocks" where Rob Turner was ordered directly to test players toughness, SPECIFICALLY Vernon Gholston?

http://thejetsblog.com/main-page/draft- ... -enforcer/

Why is this an issue now? The media is a complete hack. Cog didn't even do anything remotely close to what Turner was instructed to do, that's what's ironic ..... yet he's been made out to be this nasty guy, someone whom they won't let live down his past transgressions.

I'm not insinuating a conspiracy against the franchise.

I'm arguing that this behavior in the NFL has been well known for a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time. It was right there for everyone to see in PRIMETIME TELEVISION when the Jets did one of their Hard Knocks seasons and all these media pundits did not say a word. It's an absolute joke.

..... and in Turner's case, the episode showed Rex Ryan directly telling Turner to fight somebody on the team since Turner was known as the enforcer, nothing to take out of context either.

I guess it's only an issue when a player can't take it. Otherwise, it's perfectly acceptable and they can watch that behavior on Hard Knocks and not think to start writing articles and imposing their life values on the situation.

Did not know the NFL was the Miami Dolphins and 31 Jets teams.
