Seahawk Bennett’s outburst completely out of bounds

I have had season tickets for 24 years for the Seattle Seahawks and I have seen my share of questionable players come and go over the years. As I read about Michael Bennett’ s outburst to Q13 Fox newsman, Bill Wixey, I find it cowardly and poor sportsmanship for going into a tirade at Wixey. To ask and then accuseWixey if he ever had any adversity or had to play through challenges in life, perfectly surmises the attitude of many of the pro athletes in our society today. Bill has had to overcome adversity when he beat cancer. Bennett can take both feet out of his mouth now. If Bennett has a shred of honor and humility, he will publicly apologize to Mr. Wixey. What a classless, cowardly way to address not only a staunch supporter of the Seahawks, but all of us in general. Bennett makes millions of dollars a year and he has to grow up and realize that he not only represents himself, but the fine organization he is a part of. There is no room for poor sports. Bennett better get his act together or take it out of town.
