Victor Cruz Voiced His Support For Josh Brown...Then Got Mad At The Media For Talking About It
Fucking media strikes again, huh? Jeez, it's almost like they'll do anything for a story. Even if it requires taking a phrase like "I'm behind Josh Brown" and twisting it so that it sounds far too sympathetic to a man that admittedly treated his wife like uncooked ground beef. It's shameful really. Goddamn reporters just doing all that reporting of the word-for-word answers given to them by athletes. They should take a closer look at the context of the conversation before being so irresponsible in posting direct quotes from it. Especially when those quotes could make players that play for an organization that is STILL employing a deranged, abusive psychopath look bad.
Look, I get it. Victor Cruz had diarrhea of the mouth. He probably didn't mean to support Josh Brown. Unfortunately, he - fairly directly - did just that. It's no one else's fault but his own that he decided that a question about domestic abuse didn't deserve a response that was nothing more than some stupid cliche that is generally reserved for a player that's suffering from an actual disease. I don't want to be overly critical here, but maybe think about the ramifications of your words before thoughtlessly spouting them off to someone whose job is to tell the world what you said. Maybe don't "stand behind" a guy that should already be rotting in a prison cell. In fact, sit as far away from him as possible, because the whole "being a good teammate" rhetoric is far less honorable when your teammate is a known scumbag with a full fledged diary full of thoughts that seem more characteristic of the main character in a two part episode of 'Criminal Minds'.
How is this still going on? How is Josh Brown "not traveling with the team" or "facing an indefinite suspension"? How is him playing another game for the Giants - or anyone else for that matter - even a remote possibility? We are talking about a FUCKING KICKER that very well might be more mentally unstable than Greg Hardy and he is certainly more of a danger to those around him than Ray Rice. I'm pretty sure Sean Payton has cut kickers because they missed kicks for his son in 'Madden', yet the Giants are basically doing everything in their power to keep this shitbag employed. The franchise can't make a comically obvious personnel decision and one of it's players can't even take responsibility when he - intentionally or not - downplays the crimes that said shitbag has committed, but sure...it's the media's fault.
