Revis Island – Population One…a Gordon is Grumbling Follow-up

A couple months ago one of our guest bloggers–Mark Gordon–wrote an article about Darrelle Revis’s selfishness during his contract dispute with the Jets. I strongly agreed with his assessment that a contract is a pact, an agreement, and a statement of honor that the player is obligated to fulfill.

Revis is looking a little arrogant here, but I won't hold it against him.

What prompted me to write this article was an interview I heard on 680 The Fan in Atlanta. Darrelle Revis was the guest on Buck and Kincade’s AM sports radio program and he sounded really down to earth. He expressed how tough it was to hold out, but “business is business.” I won’t recap the whole interview, but he also picked the Steelers to win the Super Bowl, which despite some injuries I agree with. He seemed like a pretty cool guy, so after our previous (somewhat negative) blog post I wanted to give him some props.

Finally, I should point out that Tommy is a Packers fan so I want to hear his Super Bowl prediction, with a final score. I look forward to the day when Jacoby Ford leads the Raiders to a Super Bowl. Go Raiders!
