In A Curious Case Of Bad Timing, Laremy Tunsil Had To Miss His Press Conference Because Of An Allergic Reaction
NYDailyNews- The Dolphins just added another layer of mystery to the wild Laremy Tunsil saga.
The Dolphins announced that Tunsil had an allergic reaction and would not appear as scheduled Friday afternoon in an introductory press conference in Miami.
Instead of canceling the presser until Tunsil was well enough to face the media, the Dolphins held an awkward media session with just head coach Adam Gase, GM Chris Grier and ex-Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum, now the Dolphins' football operations boss.
Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me. Call this move suspect if you want, but if you think for one second that the Dolphins were going to let Laremy Tunsil step in front of a microphone about 12 hours after indicting an entire college football program of illegal paying it's players you are clear out of your skull.
That's why it's such a relief that the chef accidentally slipped those cashews in his stir-fry last night, am I right?!? Trickle a little peanut oil in the wok and BOOM! No more press conference. Absolutely hilarious that the media was like "well, let's reschedule when his itching stops and his swelling subsides", and the Dolphins front office was like "Yeaaaah, no. We'll do this one without him". Very subtle on their part. Can't say I blame them. I'm not sure if there is an amount of prep time I would need before comfortably letting Laremy Tunsil face the media, but if I had to guess it would be well over the amount of time it takes to recover from about 13 allergic reactions. You dodged this bullet Dolphins. Now you just have to find a way to shield him from a near impossible interrogation for the rest of his career. Can't be too difficult. It's not like he left that many tough questions unanswered. Just got to keep feeding the kid hypothetical nuts and have him hypothetically bed ridden until training camp starts up. Hopefully by then the media will have forgotten the most excruciatingly unforgettable draft night in NFL history.
