Friday October 3rd, 2014

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson made his debut on The Players Tribune, Derek Jeter's new athlete publishing platform, on Thursday. But his teammate Michael Bennett won't be joining him.

According to John Boyle of the Everett HeraldBennett, told he'd be a good contributor, replied "I know I would, but I don't like Jeter. I've never liked the Yankees."

Derek Jeter holds Twitter Q&A, is afraid of cats

But that's where you're wrong, Michael. Clearly you're not afraid to speak your mind. Why don't you write a whole post for Jeter's site about how much you don't like him? Assuming, that is, that he doesn't flex his editorial muscles and kill the piece.
