Matt Jones Responds To Joey Porter

From Gene Frenette of The Florida Times Union:

In another bizarre development, wide receiver Matt Jones fired back at Miami Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter, who was critical of the NFL for not yet taking any action against Jones for his cocaine arrest this summer, saying it was unfair that he incurred a fine for being critical of game officials while Jones has gone unpunished. However, Jones is reportedly appealing a suspension, which may be why no action has been taken yet.

Still, Jones couldn’t resist taking a dig at Porter after the Dolphins linebacker publicly called him out.“I don’t know why [Porter] is even thinking about me,” Jones said. “I mean, maybe he likes other men and sits up and thinks about stuff, so I don’t know. Nothing. . . . I ain’t got nothing to say.”
When someone tried to ask Jones another question, he responded: “Is Joey Porter the commissioner [of the NFL]?” After a no response, he added: “Then why would I even worry about that?”

Jones sarcastically questioning Porter’s manhood, which came with one Jacksonville television station camera rolling, will likely not be given the silent treatment from Porter. It could also make for a prickly confrontation next year if the Jaguars and Dolphins play against each other, as they usually do in the preseason.

I guess Matt Jones would have voted for Prop 8 in California.
