Why would Plaxico Burress blast his former coach and the Giants fans?

Plaxico Burress spent 2 years in prison for shooting himself. He was charged with carrying a concealed weapon and he was punished for the crime. Some say the punishment did not fit the crime, and I must say I am in that camp, but he is out now and he has signed with the New York Jets. He is 34 years old and given a second opportunity at glory, but he is still mad. Burress feels like he did not get any support from the Giants during his ordeal, and he lets them have it in the October issue of the Men’s Journal, but why? What did he expect? A player is only good to the organization when he is playing. When he is making money for them. When a player gets in trouble he will learn the definition of lonely. Those fans that used to cheer for you are gone, your teammates are gone and the coach is gone. Not everyone will encounter this kind of abandaonment, but just take a look at Tom Coughlin does he really look like the kind of guy that would be visiting you through a plate glass window? Burress has a right to be disappointed, but don’t dog or mock the fans that never turns out well. Channel that anger toward the right people and don’t forget you are 34 and got a second chance give Tiki Barber a call and you will realize just how blessed you are. http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/plaxico-burress-blasts-tom-coughlin-eli-manning-in-explosive-interview-090911
