Derek Anderson tirade is all kinds of funny

Late on Monday night, amid an embarrassing loss to San Francisco, Derek Anderson got caught laughing with lineman Deuce Lutui. In his postgame press conference, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic asked him why he was laughing (and Somers actually tweeted about asking him before the presser). Anderson's response was straight out of a Coors Light commercial and we've got video. 



Here's the transcription for those that are curious:
"It wasn't funny. I wasn't laughing about anything ... Okay, that's fine. That's fine. That's fine. That's fine. That's fine. I'm not laughing about it -- you think this is funny, I take this f----- serious. Real serious. I put my heart and soul into this s--- every single week. I'm just telling you what I do right now what I do every single week! Every single week I put my freaking heart and soul into this! I study my a-- off! I don't go out there and laugh! It's not funny. Nothing's funny to me. I don't want to go out there and get embarrassed in front of everybody. I'm telling you right now -- Deuce and I were talking!"
Somers then tried to ask another question and Anderson just yelled "I'm done!" and stormed away from the podium.

Just some reporter trying to get a story. Good for Anderson to walk out.

Asking a question is not antagonizing the athlete. Jesus, these guys get paid millions of dollars. Answering a question that would give you a chance to explain why you really did look like you were laughing during a blowout should not be too much to ask. Nice job defending these guys who show no heart during the game by attacking people who try to hold them accountable for not seeming to care.

Am I the only person who thinks Derek Anderson did not want to talk about his conversation with Deuce because the two of them are having a secret love affair?  We all know the intense amount of flak Anderson would receive for being an openly gay Quarterback, could he and Deuce be protecting their relationship?  Sounds like it to me.

Is this really what reporting has come to. This has nothing to do with football. The reporter's job is to report on the football game, not antagonize athletes....especially immediately after a loss. I guarantee you the reporter has never played the game. These little men, who don't really understand football, would never ask that question unless they had a room full of people in between them. These guys need to be held accountable as men. Why don't you write about how insecure you really are since you were not able to play any sport at a high level like these guys? Little punks with smart a** mouths. Anderson may not be a great quarterback but there is no excuse for this reporters questioning.

I thought Matt Leinart was a bum, and that getting rid of him probably wasn't all that bad a move for the Cards...

...but this guy's just a disgrace.
