Larry Foote Is Full of S–t and So Are You


Arizona Cardinals linebacker Larry Foote strongly criticized Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch on Monday, saying Lynch is sending the wrong message to children by not speaking to the media and routinely grabbing his crotch after scoring touchdowns (for which he has been fined by the NFL).

“You hear in the media, he always mentions his foundation and what he likes to do for the city of Oakland,” Foote told 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh. “I’m from the same type of urban environment (born in Detroit) that he’s from and the biggest message that he’s giving these kids, he might not want to admit it, is the hell with authority. ‘I don’t care, fine me, I’m gonna grab my crotch, I’m gonna do it my way.’ In the real world, it doesn’t work that way. It just doesn’t. How can you keep a job?

“I mean, you got these inner-city kids, they don’t listen to teachers, they don’t listen to police officers, principals and these guys can’t even keep a job because they say ‘F’ authority.”

Dan LeBatard discussed this topic on his daily ESPN Radio show on Wednesday, where weekly contributor Bomani Jones challenged Foote’s assertion, as well as called out those who were quick to jump on the bandwagon.

Quite frankly, we couldn’t agree more with Jones.
