Don’t mess with the Redskins’ head PR guy [Video]
Washington Redskins kicker Dustin Hopkins sounded like he had a lot he wanted to get off his chest moments after missing a potential game-winning 34-yard field goal attempt in overtime against the Cincinnati Bengals.
A German reporter gave Hopkins the opportunity following the 27-27 tie Sunday in London— but it didn’t last long.
“First of all, I’m just disgusted that that happened for my guys,” Hopkins began.
He never got to finish his thought. Redskins senior vice president in charge of communications Tony Wyllie made sure of that.
Wyllie first can be heard off camera, shouting, “No, hey!” He keeps up the intensity once he is on screen, “No! No! No!” Then he shoves the reporter and adds, “no interviews on the field,” for good measure.
Apparently Wyllie doesn’t behave in this manner only after things don’t go so well for the Redskins. Here he is after his team won behind quarterback
I’d hate to see this guy after a Redskins loss.
