Steelers Upset About Lack of Respect

This is just getting stupid. Has there ever been an NFL player to tell a reporter, "You know, I really appreciate all the support... Honestly, you all respect us so much. You couldn't respect us any more. It's too much respect, really. Can you please respect us less?" The NFL is like a big respect black hole, in which all respect is sucked into a negative zone and therefore everyone feels disrespected.
