Michael Kay, of ESPN Radio in New York, the Jets’ Flagship station, took a shot at John Idzik’s low profile approach with the media.
“Where’s John Idzik? Kay asked on his show today. “For John Idzik to crawl under a rock and not talk to his fan base is unacceptable.”
Okay, how would Kay feel if Idzik did a conference call with Jets fans? I don’t think that would appease him.
This isn’t about the fans.
It’s about the media not getting the kind of access they want to a GM, who rarely does interviews.
Kay seems to be hiding behind the fans, using them as a pawn, to get the GM to talk.
I can say this – Idzik is a hard worker. He’s not hiding, he’s just very focused on his job.
While I don’t agree with all his moves, and it remains to be seen if he will be a successful GM, I do think the man is very diligent when it comes to his current job.
And talking to the media isn’t a big priority of his.
