Kay trashes Woody Johnson. Even playing-field?

A prominent host on 98.7 ESPN Radio NY, the Jets’ flagship radio station, ripped into Jets co-owner Woody Johnson Sunday on Twitter.

Michael Kay blasted Woody Johnson for supposedly being scared off of Doug Marrone as a head coaching candidate due to critical articles about the coach by the Daily News in early 2015. Marrone is now the coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

“Can somebody ring good old Woody in London and ask him what he thinks of Doug Marrone coaching in the AFC Championship game next weekend! Kay tweeted on Sunday. “Through back channels Marrone was told the job was his and then Woody, a man of great conviction, started to read. The rest is history.”

Kay continued, “And this has nothing to do with Todd Bowles, who I think is a good coach. It has to do with an owner that got scared off his own conviction — and the strong recommendation of his consultants — by several columns in a newspaper. That’s pathetic.”

Kay might be right, but not sure how many flagship stations have hosts calling an owner, of a partner team, “pathetic.”

It has to be a rather rare occurrence.

Does he use this kind of language about some of the other team owners with clubs that partner with the station?

Or the Yankees?

Just asking.
