Patriots’ Johnson Bademosi swears at media after Super Bowl loss
New England Patriots cornerback Johnson Bademosi was not in the mood to talk to the media the day after his team’s Super Bowl defeat.
When approached by reporters on Monday after the team had returned to Gillette Stadium to clean out their lockers, Bademosi had some harsh words for the crowd of reporters that approached him.

Well, no, he doesn’t, I suppose. Still, it’s a bit of a visceral reaction. Bademosi was the Patriots’ third cornerback on Sunday and didn’t really factor into the game much, so it wasn’t as if he had a bad performance. Perhaps he just didn’t want to deal with inevitable questions about Malcolm Butler.
Or perhaps it’s the simplest explanation — losing a Super Bowl is hard. It doesn’t necessarily leave one in the mood to relive it, you’d think.
