Mike Florio Hurrying to Become Next Perez Hilton

mikeflorio.jpgFor the foreseeable future, I’m done with Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.

Sure, I’ll still scan his site to make sure I’m keeping up with stories for you all, but don’t expect me to link to anything that he’s writing about any time soon.

As best I can tell, Florio has a severe priapism when it comes to bashing the Jets. I don’t think it’s unfair to say, but as best I can tell he’ll never give the team credit for much of anything, and I’m done sifting through his stale Seinfeld or Office references just to find links to stuff that I’ve likely already read on Daily News, Newsday or the Post 12 hours prior.

Rather than post his ridiculous premise on why Rex Ryan is a feebleminded ninny with no locker room control — all because he underwent lap-band surgery as an intervention to help his health — I’m going to post comments that were made on his site in reaction to his own emotionally stunted prose.

Read on after the jump.

1) Haha you’re such a d—, Florio.

2) Horrible Florio.

3) … how about a little empathy and understanding? Weighing 140 pounds soaking wet in no way qualifies you to pass judgement on anyone with weight issues.

4) Seems like a pretty needlessly judgemental article. I get that it’s the offseason and there’s not mountains of news around, but criticising him for being undisciplined when he’s been a pretty successful coach just seems like unjustified editorialising.

5) Florio perhaps you should stick to pretending to analyzing things you know a little better … you are clearly talking about something you know nothing about. Perhaps this blog would be a better if you had a little discipline to research a topic before writing about it. Too bad there is no surgery for lazy journalism or you would be a prime candidate!

6) Wow, Florio, way to be a d-bag on this one… you are aware that Rex Ryan tried some old-fashioned methods of losing weight and didn’t do so well, RIGHT!?

7) Florio, Grow Up.

8) This is a ridiculous story.

9) Yikes, even as a Pats fan…this article is harsh

10) Florio continually tries to be funny by stooping to new lows. Yet his jokes fall flat and he just looks like a bigger moron. Sellout. Not funny. Find another line of work.

11) Is this offseason too mundane for you to feel the need to submit this kind of useless personal information about another human being? Seriously…WTF? This article sucks …

12) You are a d-bag Florio. I sure hope to God you don’t have any problems or vices. They guy has an eating problem and he is taking some step to help. Just a like smoker getting nicotine patches. But I am sure you have a perfect life and have complete self control over everything. …Real men look at people’s accomlishments and skills and make judgements. You look at his weight and make your judgement. A new low for you, but probably just seeing your true colors.

13) Keep making fun of him, Florio. It just shows your own lack of self-esteem …

14) the idea of willing supporting and encouraging such trash journalism makes me feel dirty.

15) I bet that you spend the whole day tomorrow trying to make amends.

Deliciously, Florio actually sullied himself in a descent from his ivory tower to make a statement on the subject in the comments. I’m sure he’s done it before, but it’s the first time I can remember him ever doing that.

To be clear, I’m not going to strike down what other writers on TJB do, I’m banning myself from any links to PFT. I’m just sick of feeding (albeit crumbs compared to their total readership) this beast anymore.

Our thanks to JetsFan4Life for sending this in.

Why can't they play like this every game!?! Go Nets!!!!


I was one of those people who thought the nets got the better deal when they got Williams instead of Melo and boy was I wrong. If this team had Carmelo Anthony instead of Williams we would have won against the bulls last year and this year that Toronto series would not have been close. Williams throughout his time here has been an absolute failure and it is his failure along with brook Lopez which forced king to take a high risk in acquiring pierce and kg because his two stars Williams and brook didn't have the heart and killer instinct to beat the bulls last year. What king should have done is traded away trade Williams and Lopez away and brought in guys who are not chronically injured and have a drive. Who would not love Lowry instead of Williams right now? He would be a lot cheaper too. I don't care how talented you are if you cannot bring it every night on a consistent basis you are not a star you just over paid and that's exactly what Williams. Utah is long way away. I still cannot believe king had to bring to other grown men to the team simply motivate Williams? Wow.

Unfortunately I'm a Net fan from childhood (Super John,Julius,Paultz etc..)Billy King thought it was a good idea to mortgage the future for a chip now but Garnett was done last yr,his tank "been" empty and Pierce's body is older than any 36 yr old..Dude shows up every 3-4 games,he can't do it every night,he's finished..The real problem is Deron Williams,arguably the worst max player ever in the NBA..How do u go 0-9 in a crucial playoff game at 29 yrs old & seemingly no injuries against (in Stephen A Smith voice) Mario Chalmers? U gotta be freakn kidding me..Hopefully they will get swept this way King will be forced to mk moves & deal D Won't and Brook the Foot Lopez to Houston for Beverly & Asik or Lin or all 3 but this dude has to go,enough is enough..The franchise is strapped now with no picks and a bunch of old players with big contracts..Garnett was on a nut in this series as well,it's totally unacceptable..
