    Suspect there is a lot of rage within Richard right now... playing with Jamarcus Russell might have that effect..

    Come on guys, that writer is clearly a prick. Look at his victim writing, how smug he was when he approached Richard, and how he specifically tried to start something. He clearly would never asked that if he didn't know that Richard's career would be ended if he had done something.

    Great find SVN! In every organization, it starts at the top. He's free to let the true Seymour come out over there in Oakland. Sad.

    Why do they let the media in the locker room? Over here even the owners of most teams will wait outside or ask the manager for permission should they want to come in the locker room.

    Honestly, when Richard said "next question" the writer should have moved on, as Seymour obviously didn't like the question, and wasn't going elaborate any further. Seymour then telling the writer he no longer wanted to talk to him, after the writer continued on with the same question is understandable.

    Seymour's attitude toward this writer seems a little harsh, but sometimes the written word doesn't tell the whole story. The writer might have asked part of his question in a sarcastic manner, and Seymour might have said "get out of here" in a slightly joking manner the first time around. All I know is that journalist might have saved the interview, if he simply moved on from that line of question.

    Here we let the media in the locker room so that Pats players can expose themselves to female sportswriters.

    Next question...

    Seymour got a penalty for yanking a players hair. This is a stupid penalty. If your going to run ariound on the field with your hair flowing out from under your helmet, then you run the risk of having it yanked, intentional or not. Your hair should be considered part of the uniform. If you want to make a "fashion statement" with having long flowing locks, then it is your own problem if it gets pulled. You don't want your hair pulled, then put it up under the helmet, wear a hairnet, or better yet, go get a damn haircut.

    That writer is a douche bag. You sit there, almost like hitting the dog in the face constantly, and now you're going to write a piece of how he bit you back? Hell, he didn't even quite do that, rather he barked back. That's pretty weak. I don't know anyone that would have acted any different. It could've been worse, Seymour could have had an actual meltdown. Is it that rude to simply say, "no comment"?

    I've always thought that the press should not be allowed in the locker room at least until everybody has showered & dressed; perhaps by that time, cooler heads - on both sides - would prevail.

    Re: OT:Seymour postgame exchange

    On one hand, Seymour pulled Clady's hair after the play was dead, so he deserved the penalty;

    On the other hand, I have absolutely no problem with one player pulling another player's hair in order to make a tackle. In that case, hair should be considered part of the uniform; and as long as the hair isn't pulled in such a way as to violate the anti-horse-collar-tackling rule, then pull away, I say.

    OK, I missed the part about after the play was dead.

    If an offensive lineman has hair hanging out the bottom of his helmet, every D line guy going against him should go for that hair and pull it out by the roots. Don't hold it for a long time, just yank hard.

    It may sound dirty, but when I played college ball, defensive players dragged me down by the jersey, horsecollar, wrist bands, shoelaces, facemasks and earholes. And I do not remember seeing much yellow laundry tossed their way. If the hair is hanging out the helmet, it is fair game.

    Technically there is no penalty for hair pulling, it is actually considered "part of the uniform" so it would be legal to say tackle Palomalu buy his hair (someone did last year). What Seymour got bagged for is unnecessary roughness described by pulling the guy's hair. I can only hope that this sours the entire Raider organization on Seymour and they decide not to bring him back for their crucial 2010 season (nudge, nudge, wink, wink).

    Seymour is in a tough spot here, he is going to lose more games this year than he has ever lost in his whole career (well that might be a bit of exageration, but not much). 9 season with the Pats preceeded by a run at UGA, Seymour has not seen many losing seasons, especially ones, that were hopeless from the get-go.

    The Raiders are an absolute mess, I only hope that they go on and win enough games this year to make next year's schedule harder.

    Gotta hope that Sey sours on Oak so our 2010 pick is enhanced. As to the exchange, I read it as the writer baiting Sey about a play that Sey isn't proud of. Were I Seymour I might have said GFY, not my best decision, or no comment depending on how pissed I was at the time. Writer is making it all about him. Probably a complete geek like Metaparel.

    That'd be pretty impressive. Not too many 13', 620lb men running around.

    Pulling hair doesn't strike me as the most manly thing a 6:6

    310 lb. man would do. I would expect it more from two little

    girls having a squabble.

    Who cares if the writer's a douche ? Who cares if Seymour's not nice ?

    He jelped us win. Now he's gone and we got a 1st rounder for him. It's all good. Why do we care so much about feelings ? My life doesn't change if Richard Seymour's sucks... thanks for the plays Richard, I hope you have good times on the West Coast. Have a nice life.

    Re: OT:Seymour postgame exchange

    A few years ago, Polamalu had a pick vs. KC. Larry Johnson caught him from behind and tackled him by pulling his hair. Johnson then proceeded to pull him off the ground by his hair, invoking a 15yd penalty. The tackle itself was completely legal.

    That being said, would a DE trying to get around an OT by pulling hair be a legal move? I know Seymour's penalty happened after the whistle, but would it be a penalty during play considering Clady isn't a ball carrier?

    Regards,
    Chris

    That writer is so full of himself, it's laughable. And I am not defending Seymour - just putting down that idiot hack who probably calls himself a journalist.

    OT: Richard Seymour pulling Broncos Ryan Clady's hair (Video)

    "Officials flagged Seymour for the 15-yard penalty in the third quarter when he failed to let go of Clady's dreadlocks. The Broncos went on to score a touchdown on the drive in their 23-3 win in Oakland.
    Seymour finished with three tackles in his third game since the Patriots traded him to the Raiders."

    There is absolutely something there in Oakland that makes players miserable. He hasn't been there for what 3 weeks and already the downward spiral has begun.

    not to rag on the guy,but 6 tackles and 0 sacks since game one is pretty poor.Why a team that only plays,4-3,would place such a high value on him,is beyond me.............but,then again,that team did draft Jurassic Russel,number one.

    Look, it really wasnt that bad lol. I mean, Wilfork has done far worse, and he's not part of some downward spiral. Everyone here is blowing this up. None of us have an idea why he did it, and having spent years watching Seymour, something had to have been done to really piss him off. Don't these two have somewhat of a history of scuffling, or am I thinking of a different Pats/Bronco player combo?

    Something obviously set Seymour off - probably something Clady did on an earlier play would be my guess.

    I'm also guessing that video won't be up for very long. The NFL is fairly vigilant in protecting their copyright protected products.
