I think the modern athlete just plays the media in search of clicks, likes, re-tweets etc... We deal in a world full of bloggers and buzz feeds.. with very few journalists anymore. I mean Kyrie Irvin tells "reporters" that he doesn't believe the world is round. wtf? I think the athletes throw stuff out there and sit back and laugh as the world ignites around them. I think it affects the actual outcome of games far far less than what we believe. So Bell wants to retire... so Mitchell thinks we can beat the Patsies in Hell.... meh Will the Jags play harder now because of what Mitchell supposedly said? I doubt it. I doubt any of this "turmoil" is in the minds of players as plays are being called out in the huddle come Sunday. What we might see as a raging dumpster fire they just see as a paycheck.
