Jets' Darrelle Revis Argues With, Hangs Up On Mike Francesa
Star athletes get asked a lot of inane questions; usually they just answer them and move on. But when WFAN (New York) talk show host Mike Francesa repeatedly accused New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis of committing an uncalled pass interference penalty against Dolphins receiver Brandon Marshall in last week's game, Revis elected to strenuously defend himself, according to Brian Costello of the New York Post, who has transcribed the interview,
DR: I watched the film. You good at interviewing. I’m good at what I do. Just leave it at that.
MF: Wait a second, you trying to tell me that just because you’re a corner and I’m not that I can’t say that was a penalty. Now, come on.
The conversation abruptly ended when Jets PR staffer Jared Winley got on the line and instructed Revis to hang up; Winley later issued a public statement and made an apology to the producers at WFAN. Francesa has had a notoriously tumultuous relationship with the Jets since Rex Ryan became head coach in 2009, according to Costello.
