Foote says Marshawn Lynch sends wrong message to kids

Arizona Cardinals linebacker Larry Foote ripped Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch for his refusal to do interviews, saying he's sending the wrong message to children.

"In the real world, it doesn't work that way," Foote said in a radio interview. "It just doesn't. How can you keep a job? I mean, you got these inner-city kids. They don't listen to teachers. They don't listen to police officers, principals. And these guys can't even keep a job because they say 'F' authority."

Foote cited former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jerome Bettis, a newly-minted Hall of Fame selection, as a player who sends the right message.
