Rory McIIroy stands up for Marshawn Lynch?

In case you missed it, Marshawn Lynch had another one of his non-press conferences after Saturday’s game. He began by saying, “You all going to try again?” Then he basically said, “I’m thankful” to each question.


However, there was one notable athlete who loved the act: Rory McIlroy. He sent out this tweet:

Now keep in mind, McIlroy, the No. 1 player in the world, is terrific with the media. He always is gracious and accommodating. If every top star was like him, our jobs would be much easier.

However, perhaps this tweet shows that McIlroy would prefer he didn’t have to be out there all the time. Maybe he wishes there were times he could be like Lynch and just say nothing?

Anyway, it is interesting to note that McIlroy received some tweets from people who didn’t agree with his stand. And he responded to a few of them.
