Matt Patricia Wants Reporter To Sit Up, Have A Little Respect

Say hello to your controversy of the week because Matt Patricia has officially picked a fight with the blue checkmarks who definitely don’t like being picked on during a press conference by a guy with a pencil sticking out of his hat. Matt went all Hoodie yesterday on a member of the Detroit media who, according to Patricia, was slouching and not showing much respect while asking a question.
Annnnnddddd….Matt let the guy know about it like Belichick would let a media guy know about it. Matt isn’t exactly happy to be answering questions about his team trading away a wide receiver in Golden Tate that was pretty much a Matthew Stafford security blanket.
Here’s the transcript of what went down, according to the Detroit Free Press:

Reporter: “Why do you think this move makes your franchise better?”

Patricia: “Ah, well, you know. Do me a favor just kinda sit up, just like, have a little respect for the process. Every day you come and ask me questions and you’re just kinda like you know, ‘gimme this.’ “

Reporter: “I’m sitting …”

Patricia: “I’m asking just to be a little respectful in this whole process.”

Reporter: “Okay, that’s fine.”

Patricia: “So ask me a question professionally and I’ll answer it for you.”

Don’t think for a second that verified Twitter is going to let this one slide. Oh no they won’t. Matt will get dragged. Here it comes, they’re going to slob shame the guy.
