TOPKATS

Redskin insider reply

Recommended Posts

I SENT HIM AN EMAIL AND THIS WAS HIS B.S. REPLY

Good luck with that. Sounds like a worthy life's calling

I called the league for a request for a policy as is my job

I alleged nothing ; I just wanted info

Cerrato is lying and missrepresenting what was a sinple, weekly conversation between me and the league

You can never lose a draft pick for this sort of statement

Only a team can charge someone with tampering, not a media member

He is a making a mockery of fact and reality and trying to play people for fools

I request policies on rule changes, code of conduct, suspensions, statement about officials, etc.

This was no different.

Its pathetic attempt to slander me, but not surprising in the least given who it is coming from.

Thanks for your time

Cheers

Did JLC really send that? Because - forget anything else that's gone on - that reply alone shows his negative feelings are so strong that he can't possibly cover the Redskins as a reporter. Time for a reassignment to the metro desk for Jasno. Honestly, "lying", "pathetic", "fools", "mockery". This in reference to someone he's paid to report on. There's no way he belongs on this beat, I don't even know why he'd want this job.

If this was a simple, routine conversation between JLC and the league, why would the league tell Cerrato about it? :whoknows:

He just keeps digging himself deeper and deeper...

My calling in life has nothing to do with you. I admit firing is a little

harsh. Maybe you should cover the mystics or I don’t know something like

ping pong. You know what would be funny if Snyder buys the post like he did

WTEM… but that’s not going to happen he wants to make money and papers are

slowly dyeing. Good luck to you and keep up the good work.

kats sent the following message:

I don't know what your problem is but I think what you did is wrong and out

of your job description.

You are the redskins beat reporter for the post right? Maybe you should move

on. I hope that the redskins will not allow you at Redskins Park or grant

you any interviews. I will also complain to your editor and I plain to post

every message board that I can for your firing.

He really sent this? You have got to be kidding me. He is clearly out of control and cannot be allowed to maintain his beat at the Post. How can the powers at the Post not come to the same conclusion? He simply cannot remain the Redskins beat writer with this kind of visceral bias combined with the restraint of a child.

Still makes no sense. How on earth did he think Vinny's question about Kiffin was tampering? The fact that it even came up in conversation with the league means JLC believed it was likely tampering. At the very least, JLC showed an embarrassing lack of understanding of the rules. A simple scan of the rule book would have cleared up any confusion.

Its obvious the way JLC talks about the Redskins that he hates them. I'm not a Cerrato fan, but I'm a Redskins fan. We don't need any negative attention. I see right threw that little facetious *******. He's a *****. **** that dude.

spell check that email next time. "plain"= plan.

other than that i agree with what your saying.

That's funny. JLC had plenty of grammar errors and yet you choose to pick on the OP.

I sent the editor an email. How do I get to my clipboard so I can get to the email I sent? I copied it in case it didn't go through when I sent it. Anybody know how to get it? I'll post what I wrote if I can figure out how to get it.

It's simply a matter of JLC trying to play gotcha with Cerato because he is clearly (as evidenced by the personal attacks in the above email ) not able to act, think or write without bias when it involves Cerato. If the Post hopes to maintain any credibility they have to reassign. I can't believe they don't realize this.

You should send that to his editor demanding a public apology. How unprofessional can he get? Sure you were a little harsh, but as a reporter he should have a thicker skin and instead he insulted you, a reader of the paper he works for! Seriously, send that to his edtor and say you will be posting his snide remarks about you and the Redkskins all over the inetrnet and sending a copy to the Redskins organization and if you do not recieve an apology IN THE POST you will be cancelling your subscription and recomending to all friends and family that they do they same.

Letter from the editor was garbage. The questions were not routine or general statements about what he can and can't ask; JLC claimed that Vinny was talking specifics about the Raiders coaching position which he absolutely wasn't. Where JLC has gone wrong is instead of reporting facts, he is trying to paint the picture where all the Skins FO does is wrong and he is a champion of the right. Vinny may be wrong at times but he's not a comic book villain who is trying to fool the entire world and to make it seem that Vinny is the devil in human form is ridiculous. He claims that Vinny leaked stories to the press on Gregg Williams yet GW said he would love to eventually come back to D.C. and had nothing bad to say about the organization. He "stood up" for Byner when he got released yet criticized the FO for not letting Zorn bring in his guys. Zorn needed Stump and Sherm to help implement to offense so why is that such a horrible thing to do?? Come on Jason....step up your game....

You might check your spelling also. In your sentence I'm sure you meant you're, not your.

Cerrato learned about this whole deal from the NFL. How does JLC know that Cerrato is lying? Does he know word for word what was said in the conversation between Cerrato and the NFL??

A lot of people question Cerrato's intelligence, but he clearly scored a direct, break-the-keel hit on a newspaper reporter. This is the first time I can recall that an individual/organization has declared war on a news outlet and won. If for this reason alone, Cerrato earns a lot of respect from me.
