JT appeared on Dan LeBetard's show this afternoon. At the end, Dan was doing his "douche or no douche" with Taylor (he asks about something and asks the interviewee to say whether the person is a douche or not; so 'the guy wearing a speedo at the beach'). He asked about Bill Parcells and JT said "douche!" Now, to be fair, he called Dan a douche, too, but it was amusing.
Shortly after someone called in and said that she thought JT would always be a Dolphin and she doesn't begrudge him going to the Jets because he "needs to feed his family."
I hate that comment. I hear people talking about players that way, and I've even heard players saying it about themselves. I know, many players throw away their money and having nothing left after their playing days, but the reality is that many players make in one year what it would take most of us MANY years to make.
And in JTs case, in 12 years of play, he's made many times what most Americans make in a lifetime.
So, the feeding his family argument falls on deaf ears.
Sure he wanted to keep playing, but....what a douche.
