When it comes to being passionate about football while having fun at the same time, Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell is off the charts.
But because of some of his actions, which some think are over the top, some media members have bashed him.
Well, not surprisingly, Campbell could not care less about the outside noise.
On Tuesday, Campbell spoke to the media prior to the Lions mandatory minicamp and he was asked about media members who are calling him out for having too much fun.
“I mean, you know, honestly I’m not worried about it,” Campbell said before the start of minicamp on Tuesday. “My whole thing, it was kind of a joke. I mean, the helmet was sitting here. But it’s also like, hey man, it’s the Detroit Grand Prix. I mean, I think that would be a pretty cool deal for our people, our fans, to see that. And I think if I’m doing something with the Grand Prix, hey man, that’s pretty cool. So that’s really as far as it went.
“I’m not worried about the criticism. I’m going to get criticized either way, that’s what you guys do, and everybody outside of this world. Ultimately I’m going to be judged by wins and losses, and so that’s, there again, just keeping it light. Look, those things aren’t going to happen during the season. Right now, I’m just being me and having a good time with it.”
Neither are we, coach. Just win football games!
