Jets' Darrelle Revis Not Amused In Interview, Hangs Up

Darrelle Revis was being interviewed by WFAN's Mike Francesa and, well, things didn't go well.

Repeatedly perturbed, the former Panther was so fed up with questions about his pick six (and whether there was pass interference or not) that he hung up on the interview at the request of a Jets' PR representative.

Revis clearly was not amused despite Francesa apparently making light of things:

During the interview, Francesa insisted that Revis should have been flagged for interference on the play. Revis vehemently disagreed.

"Do you know football or are you good at interviewing?" Revis asked Francesa.


The two went back and forth for about four minutes, with Francesa laughing at an increasingly frustrated Revis.

"You are still the only one in the world who doesn't think that was a penalty," Francesa said.

"I don't care! I don't care what everybody thinks! I don't care what you think!" Revis said.

Revis was eventually told by Jared Winley, a member of the Jets' PR staff, to hang up the phone, ending the interview with Francesa, who has a strained relationship with the Jets.

"This is why nobody wants to get interviewed by him," the cornerback can be heard saying before he hangs up.

Stuff like this happens and this won't be the last time an athlete hangs up during an interview. But, really, this isn't totally Revis' fault - it's also the fault of the PR guy. Revis could have taken things a bit less seriously and downplayed the situation (or even come across as self-deprecating). Winley shouldn't have advised he hang up - just looks bad.
