Talib tried to stiff arm media after Sunday’s loss

Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib has become a bit of a sympathetic figure in the wake of Sunday’s AFC title game.  Injured early on an alleged pick play by Broncos receiver Wes Welker that Pats coach Bill Belichick regarded as a deliberate attempt to injure, the guy who has allegedly victimized others away from the field emerged from the game as the victim.

Coupled with his ability to stay out of trouble during his one-plus year in New England, the looming free agent could be in line for a much bigger payday than the one-year, $5 million deal he signed after hitting the market last March.

But Talib still has a bit of a wild child streak in him.  After Sunday’s game, Bart Hubbuch approached Talib for comment.  Per Hubbuch, Talib said, “Get out of my face, mutherf–ker.”

(If Richard Sherman had said something like that, the Twitter servers would have spontaneously combusted.)

Talib then tried to leave the locker room, but a team official made him stay and talk, in compliance with NFL policy.

Which means that Talib won’t be fined for refusing to talk.  He possibly will be fined for the comment he directed to Hubbuch.

    the media has more rights than the players. what happened to freedom to speak or not to speak?

    Talib is just ticked he got man-handled by someone much smaller than he is.

    This really isn’t a rights issue. It’s more of Talib being a dbag issue.

    “the media has more rights than the players. what happened to freedom to speak or not to speak?”

    It’s one of the terms of employment which he fully understood when he took the millions. He doesn’t have to say anything. Just quit the NFL and you’re no longer bound by their rules.

    Maybe the $5,000,000 contract that the ignorant bum signed that says he has to stay and talk?

    Brady crying in his locker muttering OMAHA OMAHA and Talib having nightmares of big bad Wes Welker. Whats the world coming to, must be more spygate karma.

    $5M for one season plus a contract that says he has to speak to the media. If he doesn’t want to speak he can always give the 5M back.

    There is no “freedom” when you freely choose to sign a contract to play in a league with rules requiring you to speak to the media after games.

    Ice up, Son!!

    Who can blame Talib for being angry? He was the target of a bounty by Wes Welker and the Broncos. I wonder how much the Bronco players got from Welker for taking out Talib.

  15. cromags says: Jan 21, 2014 8:34 AM

    He refused to talk and then he talked? Get out!

  16. bassplucker says: Jan 21, 2014 8:41 AM

    This guy and Dick Sherman are at the top of my list of guys I hope to see broke and homeless at 40. Kings on the football field but absolute garbage as human beings.

    God forbid that a reporter got his feelings hurt…that definitely warrants a fine.

    Does any team lose with less grace and dignity than the Patriots? You have one of the classiest owners in the league, but from Belicheat down, the are disgraceful in losing. I’m sure it is the passion. LOL.
