Doug Gottlieb says his Twitter appearance at Andrew Luck should have been a joke … and wants to clarify that he is actually a big supporter of the Ex -NFL QB.
The Fox Sports Radio personality got a ton of flak for his shot on Luck on Saturday … when he said, "The rehab because of retiring is too hard," is the thousandth thing that #AndrewLuck "
Gottlieb spoke on Monday about the backlash … and said the tweet should be funny, but people took him too seriously.
"I'm a smart ass, it's always been me, I'll always be," said Gottlieb in his show. "And if I do not find anything funny about the things in life, you know what? Beat me down because I like to make fun of the things in life. "
The tweet caught the attention of names like Torrey Smith Gottlieb's earlier problems with the law, which the former basketball player is known to have banished from Notre Dame, brought up quickly.
The fact that these questions were asked and answered, "Gottlieb said." We all went on. "
Gottlieb defends his position by saying that Luck's reasoning is for suspending the" millennial "mentality. and then compares them to Luck's predecessor, Peyton Manning .
"And the new generation, maybe they're smarter, maybe they're not so interested in the ultimate success, maybe they just understand it short-term job is – much of it money and out. "
Of course, Troy Aikman was Doug's strongest critic – he called him" totally bullshit "- so you have to ask yourself if Troy will join in after Doug's explanation.
