    Awesome! I can’t wait for the full feature.

    Nice clip. Glad to see Marshawn opening up to the media a little. He seems like a good guy, and his teammates love him. After the full interview is posted, hopefully it will help all of us to know and understand him (relatively) better as well.

  3. I actually have a lot of respect for those guys, who are private people, and they decide to stay private. I love the access that Sherm gives us into his life through interveiws and twitter, but that is not ML personality.

    It is cool he has chosen a way to “speak” that still allows him to be himself and for the most part stay private.

    Best interview I’ve seen of him yet.

    I think the thing that private people understand is that once you open some doors you can’t close them again. The whole reality TV phenomenon is full of examples of this. Never let a camera/media in your home. Everyone needs a place of safe retreat. Fame is a sword that cuts both ways.

    For years Bill Cosby would without a warning of any kind, get up and walk out of an interview if they even asked a question about his family. Media types learned real fast not to probe those waters. He loosened up later on with “Himself”, which was a forerunner of “The Cosby Show” but even that, with all of its family based humor, still was not about his family.

    They recognize that people really don’t care about them. They care about what they can get from them.

    When is this going to air? Can’t wait.

    I don’t get the sense that Marshawn’s all that private. Living in New York City, I can say you don’t survive if you’re shy or don’t stick up for yourself. Oakland is the same. RealRob report caught him at times when he didn’t know he was on camera, and he was very outgoing until he saw the camera. it’s clear that he must have gotten burned by some reporter or two over the years and decided to avoid the press.

  11. Just because you let loose with your friends/co-workers – doesn’t mean you aren’t a private person.

    “I think the thing that private people understand is that once you open some doors you can’t close them again.”

    Astute comment @doubledink.

    And to go along with that, it’s not just that you can’t close those doors again, but once the public sees something, whether it’s accurate or not, it becomes reality. Perceptions perpetuate.

  13. Wow… can’t wait!

  14. NYHawkFan says:

    The matter of being a “private” person is subjective. What you call being private could be viewed as being an open book to others.
    We all make choices as to what or how much we reveal to others. That’s call discretion.

  15. Stop freakin, call Beacon.

  16. When will this air?

  17. airing Tuesday, Oct. 29, at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN.
