Another Day, Another NFL Jerkoff



I’m glad the owner of this restaurant, PYT, actually stood up for  his staff against another spoiled rotten overpriced  overindulged NFL prick. 

In case you hadn't heard, cheapskate Eagles player LeSean McCoy went to a restaurant and left a 20 cent tip.  When the incident was publicized I guess he assumed it was the "help" or what he probably considers the "little people" who should kiss his ass and wipe it for him just for the privilege of being in his presence.

But it doesn’t surprise me that there are those out there trying to excuse another superstar because what would their empty lives be like if they couldn’t drink beer, watch the NFL, and worship at the altar of those who wouldn’t give them the time of day if they asked.  And of course, after being called out he claims he was given “bad service.”  

No, LeSean, it turns out you and your friends are just a bunch of jerks.

But it wasn’t “the help” that posted it.  It was the owner of the restaurant and he stands by what he did and I for one am glad he did.  I’m really sick of people taking up for these pamper wearing jock strap over glorified idiots.  Sean McCoy should be the one apologizing but the problem with that is, assholes seldom do.  Especially if they play in the NFL.

From The Consumerist:

…………in a letter posted this afternoon on the PYT Facebook page, that owner says he’d like to apologize to the record-breaking running back… but he just can’t.

First off, the owner clarifies that the waiter in this incident had nothing to do with posting the receipt on Facebook.

“I take total and complete responsibility for sharing this receipt,” he writes. “It was not our server’s decision, it was mine. I am to blame.

“I decided to take action after some serious thought,” continues the owner. “And while I’d like to apologize to Mr McCoy, I cannot in good conscience do so. I stand by my actions one hundred percent.”

He then recounts his side of the story, in which McCoy and three friends visited PYT on Monday and ended up sitting in a booth next to the owner and other managers.

“They were given excellent service. Impeccable service,” writes the owner. “If anything, our server was a little nervous as was our food runner, because they are big, big fans.”

However, he claims that McCoy and his friends quickly became “verbally abusive” to the staff, including derogatory comments about females.

The owner also says that after the group had left, he noticed the waiter was staring at the receipt left behind.

“I took the receipt out of his hand and I couldn’t believe that anyone could be so callous,” he writes. “Mr. McCoy had left a .03% tip for our staff… Twenty cents that our server has to split with the food runner and the bartender. Two dimes from an insulting multimillionaire.”

Giving McCoy the benefit of a doubt, the owner says he assumes that the football star is “usually an awesome dude” and maybe he was having a bad day. But he takes issues with claims from the player and his management that it was in response to bad service — a claim the owner labels as “a complete slanderous lie.”

“At the end of the day, I did what I felt my heart told me to do,” he explains. “And I don’t want anything from Mr McCoy, but…maybe an apology to his server who gave him excellent service would be cool.”

    1. What made me sick was reading these damn sports fans take up for this guy. Some people will excuse anything a sports figure does because they worship at the alter of the NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL and so on and so on.

      Do these people really think the owner of this business would risk pissing his clientele off by making something up? I'm just glad that the comments and support of the owner is running miles ahead of the sports fanatics.
