“Media Outlets Took A Portion Of This Interview And Made It Controversial” | Deion Sanders Not Happy With The Way Rob Jay Interview Was Framed

Jackson State head coach Deion Sanders has addressed the video exchange between him and JSU assistant athletics director for broadcasting and video services Rob Jay. In the video last week, Sanders can be seen calling out Jay for how he spoke off camera versus how he spoke on camera. The video caused a bit of a stir as many believe Sanders belittled the savvy media veteran. In an attempt to clean things up Sanders took to Instagram to tell what really happened by his account.

“A few media outlets took a portion of this interview and made it controversial which is wasn’t. This is my dear friend ‘Rob J,’ a seasoned great media personality here in Jackson. We clown like this every week. This is a quick view of our relationship that always ends with ‘Rob J’ giving me a gift but this time I gave him 1 as well.

Sanders continued …

“Stop trying to create the perception of wrong & disrespect between 2 friends that have true love and respect for one another. We’re better than this BLACK MEDIA OUTLETS. We are so much better than this. God bless you and have a great day. Sorry I had to address this foolishness.”

While Sanders saying they joke like that often may be true, for the viewer it came off as Sanders was telling him to stop being fake for the cameras. It also seemed as if Jay was caught off guard by Sanders telling him that. But if there wasn’t any malice or ill intent, as Deion stated, the media may have definitely overblown the interaction.

Sanders Is Fresh Off His Postgame Dustup With Alabama State Head Coach Eddie Robinson Jr

Sanders has been under heavy media scrutiny this week since his postgame beef with Alabama State head coach Eddie Robinson Jr. During the Oct. 8 affair, which happened to be the Hornets’ homecoming, Sanders and Robinson’s postgame midfield handshake became a topic of discussion when Sanders tried to bro-hug Robinson, who wasn’t for the antics. That began a series of postgame comments by both, with Robinson saying Sanders isn’t SWAC. In typical Sanders style, the Hall of Famer responded with his own message on a hoodie saying, “I Am SWAC.”

Robinson thinks Sanders was disrespectful and condescending for remarks made the week of the game, where he said Alabama State was using JSU as a “money game.” Sanders also said “all money ain’t good money,”

Robinson felt the remarks were uncalled for and he let it be known in his postgame presser.

Sanders And JSU Are 6-0 And The Clear-cut Best Team In The SWAC

This season the Tigers have outscored opponents 264-57 this season, including Saturday’s 48-8 romp over the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats. That happened to be another game that Sanders insinuated was about money, when the brass at Bethune-Cookman moved the game from their on-campus stadium to Jacksonville and the Jaguars stadium. Sanders questioned the move, saying they were expecting the JSU fan base to fill the nearly 70,000-seat stadium.

Tigers are halfway home to an undefeated season.
