Seems like several D.C. area sports stars are becoming fed up with the media, which is good, because New York teams are doing relatively well and its about time another major market took up the mantle of journos on the attack.

First it was a lethargic Gil , and now, Mike Sellers is just trying to live in the face of media scrutiny .

Asked what the hardest part of the season has been thus far, Sellers said: “You reporters.”

When a reporter followed up by asking, “How so?” Sellers said, “Next question.”

Sellers declined to answer questions following Sunday’s loss at Carolina. When reporters approached him Wednesday, he said, “I’m going to tell y’all right now, don’t ask me anything negative. Don’t ask me anything remotely negative.”

Right. Your team is 2-3 against all winless teams , you recently threw punches at the running back you block for , who also wanted you out.

Your coach is on a perpetual hot seat , so much so that your teammates are anonymously asking for a public vote of confidence , your owner is facing massive fan upheaval , and most of all, none of you have come out with any quality Eastern Motors commercials as of late.

So yeah, we’ll do our best to drum up the positive for ya’.
