Arizona quarterback Derek Anderson apologizes for press conference outburst
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Derek Anderson has apologized for his press conference outburst Monday night.
"Okay, let's try this in a manner that doesn't end up on YouTube," he said of his comments to the media after a reporter questioned why he appeared to be smiling and laughing on the sideline during Arizona's loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Monday night. "I'd like to apologize for my actions after the game. There is a more professional way I could have handled that. I wasn't raised that way. My mom and dad didn't raise me to act like that in times of adversity. Obviously I was very frustrated by what had happened during the game, and I let the emotions get the best of me."
Anderson said he'd planned to get his Christmas tree today. "I decided that wasn't a good idea. I'll wait until Friday."
