Jason Babin Goes to Jacksonville, Rips Philly Media for Being Unprofessional

Here are some Tweets (aggregated) from Jacksonville reporter Vito Stellino (Irish?), who was there when Jason Babin met with the media today: [these comments didn't occur during the 6:21 of video on the Jaguars' website, so there is some context missing]

Babin met with press and said he is happy to be in Jax, impressed with practice and wants to be here long term. Of his image in Philly, he said he challenged the Philly writers to be professional. Said they asked loaded questions. Babin said of Eagles, "Things are kind of stagnant. They could ultimately get worse before they get better.'' Besides loaded questions, not being professional, Babin said Philly writers didn't tie shoes, wore shorts, had stinky breath.


I’m not 100% sure that last part wasn’t tongue-in-cheek (from Babin or Stellino), but still… wow. On one hand, I get an unnatural thrill every time an athlete rips the local media. It’s funny. But with the other, I want to punch Babin in the face. He’s either too stupid to realize what he’s saying half the time, or he is the biggest crybaby to ever play in Philadelphia (and I don’t take writing that sentence lightly). Challenged the media to be professional? YO DOUCHEBAG, HOWS ABOUT CUTTING BACK ON THE TRIBAL TATTOOS AND STUPID ASS CELEBRATIONS AND GETTING STUCK IN THE ALASKAN WILDERNESS INSTEAD OF ATTENDING MINI CAMP AND WANTING TO RUN WITH THE BULLS, YOU POOR, POOR SPORT, YOU.

This is the same guy whose wife went after CSN’s Reuben Frank on Twitter for a very fair criticism and whose publicist got irrationally snippy with us because we wrote some negative stuff about Babin in January.

Of course, Les Bowen punched Jeff McLane in the head last year. So there’s some truth to what Babin said. But he's still a dick.

Here are some other quotes, taken from the video on the Jaguars' website, which you can watch here:

Blames the team for his lack of sacks: “Sometimes individual stats are a culmination of team effort, even though an individual gets the accolades.”

Is delusional about the Jaguars“Things are stagnant [in Philly]. They can ultimately get worse before they get better. So being a part of something that is about to blossom is definitely an exciting feeling.”

On getting bashed leaving Philly“Well, if you don’t know Philly, that’s a little bit of endearment. That’s kind of the way they love. It’s like a backhanded compliment. The non-Philly person would look at it as mean cruel, but it’s a little bit of a sign of endearment. [When they say you’re surly?] It’s a little bit of their style, I guess.”

No, no– we really didn't like you.

On being misportrayed by the media“They got to find something to write about, right? There’s about ten-times them as there are you guys.”

The video cut off after that, so we'll keep you updated if we find the full context of Stellino's comments.

    He “hopes” to be there long-term so he can finish out a deal he wouldn’t get on the open market….

  • airedale November 29, 2012 at 4:38 pm

    Anyone using the word “unprofessional” instantly labels themselves as a dick with no real complaint. They just don’t like something, have no actual charge, and york up “unprofessional”.
    Babin on the other hand is a clueless professional douchebag.

    Go back to the woods and ingest Trent’s dark sausage some more you greasy faggot

  • Babin's Wife November 29, 2012 at 4:47 pm

    Well, at least when he goes down and guzzles my cock, (which IS bigger than his) it will be in the warm sunny, Florida weather.
    Ta-ta, Philadelphia!

    Babin will love the gator hunting in jaxonville. Good luck Jason!!

  • ThePhillyFlash November 29, 2012 at 5:15 pm

    Is anyone actually surprised Babin whined like the immature little bitch he is after landing in Jacksonville? I’m not. Well, whatever passes for the local media down there will soon learn what we already know, that Babin is a major league shitstain who’s all about himself and no ne else.

  • matt November 29, 2012 at 5:23 pm

    McNabb is on DNL right now making excuses for Babin. Barkann is looking at him like he’s fucking high.

  • Pete H November 29, 2012 at 5:30 pm

    No Jason, you weren’t endearing to us. You questioned our loyalty, called us stupid, told us to eat paste, and said were vile. You bitched and cried whenever their was fair criticism from fans and media alike and you never held yourself accountable for your garbage play. You’re such a piece of shit, you laughed when you got let go. This team is about to go through a catharsis while you go to the very definition of stagnation in Jacksonville. Shit, you just threw all your old teammates under the bus because you spin like a fuckin ballerina 7 yards past the QB–That is when you’re not busy getting pummeled by superior O-linemen. You were the poster boy for the unlikability factor of this team. I award you no points, and may god have mercy on your soul.
    With love xoxo

  • Angelo Cataldi November 29, 2012 at 6:19 pm

    Candy..there is definitley cunt smell in it you fuckin puke. From the time I smashed RHEA HUGHES smelly cunt in with a balltine hammer all over Jason’s winshield and steering wheel. I then stappled her mangled cunt lips to the windshield wipers so they can do a little shining. Fuck you.

  • Lil' Timmy November 29, 2012 at 6:27 pm

    Angelo do you want to come over to my gramma’s and help us bake cookies?

  • Mrs. Butterheadworth November 29, 2012 at 6:45 pm

    I’ve never watched gay porn, but I’d wager that that picture looks like a jungle scene where the white explorer is just about to be captured and fed 10 black native dicks.

  • JimInAC November 29, 2012 at 6:54 pm

    How does this assclown have a fan club?

  • Candy from the Oak November 29, 2012 at 6:55 pm

    @ Angelo your one angry guy, but your comments are shorter, keep up the good work

  • murph November 29, 2012 at 6:56 pm

    Jacksonville is worse than the Eagles. The Eagles have fans who care when their team eats shit.

  • Angelo Cataldi November 29, 2012 at 8:17 pm

    Candy, you’re a stupid nigger. Eat my filthy diarrhea.

  • Timbo November 29, 2012 at 8:33 pm

    Angelo I have another ticket to see Dave Matthews Band on 12/22 want to go?

  • Amaury Telemaco November 29, 2012 at 10:54 pm

    Stylles, you’re wrong. The only thing Babin could ever do halfway decent was sack the QB, and he couldn’t even do that consistently until the previous 2 seasons. Now that he can’t do that, why else would we keep a guy who has a reputation for not being a team player and being a bad influence on our younger players? Not to mention a guy who comes off as a tool in general. Don’t buy a Jags jersey just yet because he’s never done anything remarkable outside of the Wide 9.

  • ThePhillyFlash November 30, 2012 at 4:44 am

    Stylles: I like to think I understand the nuances of football, and from what I’ve seen, Babin did very little of what you mentioned as he was clearly a one trick pony. Beyond sacking the quarterback, Babin didn’t contribute much else, he damn sure didn’t help to effect the outcome of games. Short and sweet, he was a non-factor, an invisible man.
    As for Trent Cole, while he’s been a major disappointment this season, I won’t deny that, at least he doesn’t act like a smacked ass or waste time needlessly complaining about the fans. Bottom line, Babin was all about Babin and not the team. Jacksonville fans will learn that lesson, and soon.
