Woody Johnson has stirred up quite a protest in the aftermath of the alleged “coin toss” that took place at the quite Lebowskian ‘League office’ on Friday… and he’s not ashamed to let it fly:

“An NFL coin toss has a few fundamental elements that are missing here, most notably the presence of the teams involved,” Johnson said.  “That’s how it’s always done in the League, whether it’s determining the order of the draft or deciding who’s going to kick off the game.  When the issue of which team would be hosting the first regular season game could not be resolved on the merits, I suggested a coin toss as the fairest way to resolve this issue.  The League rejected that idea.  Then, I was told on Friday that a coin toss had taken place at the League office and that the Jets had lost.  We rejected a process in which neither team was present.  The League departed from our time-honored tradition and declined the opportunity to set the matter straight with a transparent process.”

I don’t know whats funnier, the Seinfeld clip dredged up by Florio or the fact that it really DOES NOT MATTER who plays when…. only that each team WINS their home opener for their fans.

    Woody Johnson needs one of those terrible towels they use in Pittsburgh so he can cry in it. What a baby. As owner, I wouldn’t have even addressed it. Maybe being a multi-millionaire makes a person extra sensitive.

    WHO CARES? The wins are all that matters! Let’s be the first to win a playoff game in the new stadium! That would be a novel idea!

    I say his name speaks well of his personality!
