We wish this was satire. But we’re afraid it’s not. Here is, verbatim, what Larry Michael said on Comcast’s Redskins Nation yesterday:
And again, it really smacks of unprofessionalism, and a big concern that I have is that he’s in this building, ok? Uh, what stops him from leaking—with this hateful spirit that he has—what stops him from leaking information to other teams? How ’bout that, Redskins fans? How would you feel about that? How would you like it if you found out, ‘Well, he could possibly be a source for a Dallas newspaper?’ If you’re a Redskins fan, you’ve gotta be worried about this, you’ve got to be scared a little bit about what he could do. How he could leak information from this building to the opposition. This IS pro football. Other teams LOVE getting inside information. Maybe he IS a source elsewhere. How can our players speak to him without knowing this information will not be passed off to harm them in a ball game somewhere along the way? Why this hatred of our team, the Redskins, Redskins Nation? Of course, the Sourcerer is Jason La Canfora, but you already knew that, didn’t you? What do you think, Redskins Nation? Love to hear your thoughts.
Yeah, maybe he’s giving Pentagon secrets to Al Qaeda. He works at the Post, and people at the Post have contacts to high ranking military officials. So what do you think about that, Americans? Hmmm? You know what? What would you think if we told you he organized 9/11? How would that strike your fancy, Nation? Look, let’s not get carried away, but what I’m trying to say here, fans, is that Jason La Canfora is Osama bin Laden. Love to hear you thoughts on that.
But seriously, La Canfora is the one who “smacks of unprofessionalism,” yet Michael is on television outright suggesting the La Canfora is capable of, or actually is, giving insider info to the Cowboys? And while La Canfora is apparently “in the building”? Perhaps Michael should try talking to La Canfora about his concerns of espionage. Or, better yet, just stop outright slandering a man who cannot defend himself.
This really has gotten way out of hand. First, Vinny Cerrato incorrectly accuses La Canfora of something JLC never did, and now they are trying to scare the fans into thinking that he could potentially harm the team on the field by giving out insider info.
Oh, and while we’re here, please stop referring to our fan base as “Redskins Nation.” This isn’t fucking Boston and we’re not a pack of blowhard douchebags. Unlike Larry Michael, Vinny Cerrato and Co.
