I have an idea for a new reality show - Athletes Turned Analysts Acting Like Petty Teenagers. In response to RGIII's not wanting to talk to Donovan McNabb, the Fox Sports 1/NBC Sprots Radio Analyst responded, via his radio show, in the most passive aggressive of ways (transcript courtesy of the Washington Post): “I’m just trying to help him. Clearly the young generation, they think they have all the answers. He’s going through a little turmoil right now, trying to make it out on the field, and it’s unfortunate. But that’s where we’re at right now as far as these young quarterbacks who think they have all the answers. Until things start to fall apart and come down trembling on you, then you want some help. But it’s a shame. I honestly think that over there in Washington, he’s getting brainwashed. He’s getting input from whoever it may be on, ‘There’s no reason to talk to him, it didn’t work out here.’ If they expressed their dislike when I was there, or what I used to do, so be it. But, I hope the best for the young man, but the direction he’s going in is really a direction he does not want to do. He does not want to go there with me, especially when I got the last word.” You got the last word? Really? That's what you consider a victory? And he doesn't want to go where with you? Pettyville, population 1? McNabb is 36 and sounds 75 at times and 12 at others. He continues building a case for RGIII to NOT talk to him, rather than vice versa. Donovan McNabb has to make up his mind - does he want to speak his mind and be a member of the media who doesn't give a crap what current players think or does he want to get his feelings hurt because current players don't want his advice? Or does he just want to send random questions on Twitter? Could this be the end of Aaron Hernandez NFL career? Your thoughts? — Donovan McNabb (@donovanjmcnabb) June 26, 2013 [Washington Post]
