Not much of a SR610 fan, but their letter in response to Wrigley's letter is pretty good stuff:

Quote:
We have visited your city multiple times. And when we weren’t busy counting mullets, Confederate flags and watching old people crash cars into convenience stores, we were seeking cover and trying to not get shot.

Coach Gary Kubiak says the Texans (5-3, 3-0 in AFC South) will not change the way they play. Unfortunately for your city, coach Jack Del Rio has not said the Jaguars (2-6, 1-1 in AFC South) will change the way they play, either. It’s impossible, especially when you have a future bust and softy at quarterback – as well as receivers picked out of a trash heap – powering your offense.

But we digress.

Below is a video of Terrance Knighton hitting Drew Brees late. Yikes.

Link to video

Steve Wrigley, sports director at Action News in Jacksonville, told SportsRadio 610 that he hadn’t seen dirty play from the Jaguars all year. We have no choice but to assume he’s not really keeping up with his team.

But is that the kind of message you want to send to the youngsters playing football in Jacksonville? Is this the type of sportsmanship the NFL is all about?

Maybe this question will hit home with you all in that part of Florida. What would Tim Tebow the saint do?

While we’re on the subject of being an example to America’s youth – and we’d honestly be surprised if you have any kids in your 875-square-mile-senior-center of a city- here are some additional points to consider and questions to ask yourselves:

- Is Blaine Gabbert yelling a certain profane word that starts with “mother” a good message for the children? Come on, man.

- While we are on the Gabbert subject – is playing quarterback like he does a standard you want your children to live up to? Because we think stinking it up on the field for 60 minutes every Sunday seems to be the easier option for some of you.

- In the movie Bambi, Thumper said: “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” Well, Terrance Knighton said he hates Houstonand hates the Texans. OUR FEELINGS OUR HURT. WE ARE WRITING A LETTER TO THE NFL DEMANDING COMPENSATION.

- Debate class 101: If you make a claim or announce a bold opinion, like the one Terrance Knighton stated about the Texans being arrogant, back it up with evidence when asked about it. Knighton, your argument is lacking, and we rule it an epic failure on your part.

- Is whining after a loss in Houston (Jaguars players) or crying about something Houstonians alledgedly want for children (Wrigley) acceptable? We guess it’s okay, but those actions are on you.

We hope these points will encourage the Jaguars, Wrigley and all the other members of the Jacksonville Football Moms Club to reconsider their anger at those meanie Texans.

But, most importantly, we urge Steve Wrigley to man up.

Sincerely,

The guys from the J&R show on SportsRadio 610 in Houston

Forgive me for bringing up old stuff but, didn't Guy Whimper throw a punch towards Ravens LB Ayanbedejo that didn't get flagged, and the Ravens player retaliated and got ejected?

Does that make the Ravens a better fanbase for not whining uncontrollably about a punch that didn't get flagged?

This is now standard issue for the Jags.

Default Re: Jacksonville Media Member Whines About Dirty Play

I listen to 610 quite a bit, and though not the biggest fan of theirs most of the time (J&R), I did enjoy this segment and the ones that followed on the topic of this Steve Wrigley fella and his open letter... The main reason I enjoyed all of this was that for the first time as a Texans fan I felt the whole "Ahhh, it feels good to be on top.." feeling, which let's face it, Jaxoff isn't complaining if we're just another well, Jaxoffsville (English scholars: how bad of a run-on sentence was that? And is it run-on, or run-off? And do you find it "weird" that "weird" does not fall under "I before E unless after C"? And why/why not?)...

Now sure, it can all go downhill with bigger injuries that shall not be named, or the Texans can remember they've been living in a suck culture there "on Kirby" (for you, Larry in Stafford) and resort back to it, but I've just never had this feeling as a Texans fan...

Also, and I think someone brought it up already on the board, look who's not talking about us being dirty: Steelers... Ravens... That has to put a big ole smile on your face when you think about it that way, seeing who those teams are and how one team's star defender has been out since a helmet-to-helmet collision with one of our linemen in question...

Too much left of this season and I won't be content just yet, but damn it's got me feeling good...

Great response to Steve Wrigley. I watched the next play on the video and N.O. came within an eyelash of getting a touchdown. When it looked like a TD they was a lot of happy noise at the Tarp Center.

That was one of the things I thought they left Wrigley off the hook about. So that stadium holds 80,000 without the tarp and the team pretty much sees that as an impossible number to put into the venue, enter the tarp. The Houston guys should have harped on that. How most cities, Houston included, would probably sell 80,000 tix if that's what the stadium could hold, just no way they could in Jacksonville without the enemy that travels well.

The games with Jacksonville have been chippy since about 2003. Not sure why their media is just now picking up on it. I will never forget one of their special teams players taking out our punt returner on a fair catch and later admitting the obvious and saying it was intentional and he had done it to pump his team up. Carr used to chirp with Stroud and Henderson all game long. Our games with Tennessee have escalated to this level only recently imo.

While Del Rio sucks as a head coach, dude was a LB which doesn't lend itself to being a whiny, bitcht person... Props to Del Rio here in this regard.

John McLain posted that Del Rio, Jones-Drew, and Clint Sessions all had NO problem with the Texans' style of play. Tells me those other whiners are just hatin'.
