After a formal complaint was filed by the Pro Football Writers Association, the Jets have suddenly put together the year end media session with coach Rex Ryan and owner Woody Johnson.
The Jets canned the coach talking Monday after players cleaned out their lockers. He is by league policy supposed to have a year end chat with members of the media.
The wait will make the Jets in violation of a league policy, which states in full:
“Every team is required to 1) open its locker room for player interviews the day after the season ends and 2) hold a news conference during the week following the end of its season with its head coach, and/or owner, and/or club president, and/or general manager. The purpose is to respond to fan interest in the conclusion of the team’s season.”
According to league spokesman Greg Aiello, the NFL is looking into the situation.
