An interview last week between an NFL player and a radio host offers lessons for those who aren’t professional athletes.
The trouble started in last week’s Monday Night Football game, when New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis intercepted a pass intended for a Miami Dolphins player and returned it 100-yards for a touchdown.
Replays of the interception showed that Revis may have committed a penalty for making contact with the receiver, but the referees didn’t call it.
Radio host Mike Francesa interviewed Revis late last week and relentlessly went after the NFL player for what the host viewed as an uncalled penalty.
Mike Bako speaks on the Wall Street Journal Radio about the NFL Lockout.
