Darrelle Revis Hangs Up On Radio Host
New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis was so frustrated while doing a radio interview that he hung up on a New York radio host.
Darrelle Revis hung up on WFAN radio host Mike Francesa. Following the Jets’ 24-6 win against the Dolphins on Monday Night Football, Revis appeared as a guest on Francesa’s show. Francesa was stating that the 100-yard interception that Revis returned for a touchdown against the Dolphins was actually pass interference. He asked Revis question after question about the play. Revis eventually had enough.
When Francesa insisted that Revis should have been flagged for pass interference, Revis responded by saying, “Do you know football or are you good at interviewing?” The two went on and on about the play for about four minutes. Francesa laughed while saying, “You are still the only one in the world who doesn’t think that was a penalty.”
“I don’t care! I don’t care what everybody thinks! I don’t care what you think!” Revis said. Revis was later told by a member of the Jets’ PR staff, Jared Winley, to hang up on Francesa. Revis didn’t have a problem hanging up on Francesa and could be heard saying, “This is why nobody wants to get interviewed by him.”
