Skip Bayless Doesn’t Let His Wife Use Twitter Because ‘She’s More Opinionated Than Me’
Marshawn Lynch doesn't give a shit about what anyone thinks -- let alone the cast of blowhards on "First Take." So why would he care what they thought about an innocuous, reasonable criticism his mother, Delisa Lynch, posted to Facebook regarding Seahawks' offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell? According to Skip Bayless, Marshawn should be "taken to the carpet" for his mom's opinionated paragraph.
Um, why? Because you say he should? That doesn't make any sense. Lynch didn't break any rules by having a family member with an internet connection, and you are only expected to protect your image if you give a shit about it in the first place. Marshawn Lynch does not, so there's no reason to bother him about his mom's social media activity. Alas, Skip Bayless controls his own public persona with the ice cold precision of Kim Jong Un and expects others to do so, as well.
Here's what Lynch's mom said that has Skip all bent out of shape (the post has since been taken down):
"Too the smart azz media who wrote that's why marshawn didn't get the ball in the superbowl ,how many times did russell get sacked yesterday dont worry i will wait on the answer plus it was totally different at the superbowl the line was better than yesterday no blocking and to the offense caller who should have been fired yes i said it Fired !!! He is the worst play caller ever the only reason he called that dumb azz play yesterday is to be able to justify the 1 yard that wasn't called in the superbowl ,but most fans already figured this out .were still on a mission but i know the Seahawks staff loves that play caller more than a win ,go figure ?#?nfldontpayme?# I love this team and will stand up to anybody who tries to destroy it boom!!!!"
Skip made it evident that he holds people accountable for the opinions of their close family members, and in fairness, he'd hold his own family members accountable for ruining his good name were they to go rogue and pop off online. Even his life partner Ernestine -- someone he claims to be more opinionated than himself. Wait, how is that possible?
"You know Ernestine, my Ernestine? She has wanted to be on Twitter for the last two years. She is more opinionated than I am and she is definitely more knee-jerk owe opinionated than I am, and I just flat out said 'No, you are not going to join Twitter.' You're not going to have your own Twitter site because I would be held accountable by you hitting send in all your anger and passion spilling over about something that somebody said about me that i don't even care about. so i don't want to be held accountable for that. my dear, my darling. so, no, you're not going to be on twitter because you would be hitting send, send, send. and i would go down, down, down." Skip said about his wife...on TV.
"Let me confirm for the masses, as somebody who loves himself some Ernestine, who knows her very, very well," Stephen A. Smith said through a massive smile. "I can confirm and completely concur."
"Yes you can," Skip responded.
Wait, is it just us or does it sort of sound like the "First Take" crew have a little triad going on here? Oh my god...

"By the way," Skip continued. "That's the only reason I wouldn't want [Stephen A. Smith] to give up your phone if the NFL were investigating you, because there are a few texts from Ernestine in there I would not want to be made public."
Ok, first of all, ew. What in God's name is on that man's phone and please can someone throw it into a volcano? Ew ew ew ew ew. Second of all, ew.
