London Fletcher on Portis
Ok, I can't help myself.
Like I wrote earlier, London Fletcher could be bottled up and sold as essence-of-team-player. He always says the right thing. Always. This usually means he declines to answer any of my questions.
But he was on Sirius NFL Radio with Alex Marvez and Damien Woody earlier this week, and he was asked if he had heard about Clinton Portis's most recent radio flap.
"I think I got a little bit of it," Fletcher said with a laugh. "You know, sometimes you kind of need to maybe think a little bit before you speak. You know, obviously I don't know the gist of the conversation or the question that Clinton was asked but, obviously certain things you maybe need to think a little bit more before you speak."
Sound advice. Marvez then asked what Fletcher feels about players who are sort of outspoken and sort of generate headlines not about football, if you sort of know what he means. CPCPCPCPCPCP.
"Well, I think CP, he has a lot of personality and he's going to speak out with his personality," Fletcher said. "I don't think he meant anything in a negative or disrespectful manner, so to speak. I've heard that he has apologized for his statement. But obviously when you have the radio shows, you kind of have to be careful with what you do say. But you do want to also have personality. That's the reason why they give you radio shows. You kind of have to walk a fine line, so to speak."
Could not craft a better response in the best PR shop in the land.
