What's going to happen is Wang will come on, Snow won't. He'll talk about how this was a whole big misunderstanding between the two. Spin it into a good light and make sure Botta not whole has his credentials reinstated but will kiss his ass the rest of the season.
This is not fluff. It's what he thinks of the man. He has respect for the owner and for the fact that he kept the team here.
I understand that and that's what I meant by "fluff." At the same time, you know that Botta knows what Wang has his hands in and his motives for a lot of things. You know the Lighthouse Project is a huge blow to the franchise in terms of spending money for the roster, and so does he. His respect for Wang for not blowing that up on the most important NY Sports radio show is what I meant.
This whole thing reminds me of that hullaballoo with the NY Mets where Omar Minaya tried to single out the one reporter for writing about the Tony Bernazard situation. Another kind of 'personal vendetta against a reporter' that ended up making Minaya look REAL bad.... he was a lame duck GM after that debacle.
He's banned anyway - bury them deep under the bus.
Someone mentioned that Botta has unconditional love for NYI and that's the real reason he wimped out. He talked tough on the blog but not on WFAN.
That was me. I just don't think he has it in him to take a baseball bat to the organization on a platform like WFAN. Perhaps he thinks he'd be harming too many things (personal and profesional memories, alumni relationships, etc.) he holds dear...
