Revis camp blasts Jets, Cromartie burns after trade

The Isle of Revis now has a new and very expensive address. [Darrelle Revis] will receive an annual $13 million base salary, $1.5 roster bonus and $1.5 million workout bonus, according to a league source. Owner Woody Johnson's refusal to pay that kind of top-dollar contract extension for one of the best players in franchise history prompted new general manager John Idzik to deal his most valuable asset to further Gang Green's rebuilding process. "The organization is not committed to winning," a source close to Revis told the Daily News on Sunday. ... Revis' departure leaves a cavernous hole in an already depleted secondary that also lost its top three safeties in the offseason. "It [stinks]. That's my reaction: It [stinks]," Pro Bowl cornerback Antonio Cromartie told the News on Sunday. (New York Daily News) Comment

D'Antoni irked by Bryant tweets

What, you thought Kobe Bryant would go silent during the second season? Although [Mike D'Antoni] stayed optimistic about Game 2 Wednesday and the possibility the Lakers would hit more jumpers, the coach flashed the frustration he sometimes does after tough losses upon being asked about Bryant on Twitter emphasizing the ball going to the post. D'Antoni said they tried to get the ball inside, then rolled his eyes, saying: "It's great to have that commentator." D'Antoni tried to downplay the situation, saying: "He's a fan right now. You guys put a little bit more importance on that kind of fan. ... He wants to be part of it, so that's good." And Bryant tweeted in response: "A fan?? Lol." (OrangeCounty.com) Comment

Phillies coach blasts media over Halladay

Of Jonathan Pettibone's MLB debut Monday, Rich Dubee said the 22-year-old righty has "a great opportunity," but he wasn't all that interested in talking about Roy Halladay. The Phillies' pitching coach was asked for his thoughts on [Halladay's] last two outings, a pair of strong starts against Miami and St. Louis. Dubee brusquely declined to speak about Halladay's work during an interview session with reporters Sunday. "I'm not going to talk about it," Dubee said. "Everybody bashed Roy Halladay long enough. Now he has a couple of good ones and all of a sudden he's a Cy Young candidate. You guys ride that roller coaster and we'll stay where we're at. Let Roy be Roy." (CSN Philly) Comment
