(WSCR) The Big Apple isn’t for everyone.

Maybe it’s not for Santonio Holmes. The veteran wide receiver apparently is unhappy with the way the New York media treats the Jets.

In a recent interview, Holmes pleaded with the media to be more supportive of the team, to write more positive things.

“If you guys want to be, and this is for the New York media, if you guys want to be a part of our team and want to feel so important, be there to support us, not to try to break us down,” Holmes said. “Because (there’s) not one day that we all step in that locker room and we try to break each other down, that we talk bad about the way that person played because it affects the team the way one person plays if they don’t play to perfection.

“If the New York media wants to be a part of our team and wants to continue writing about us, write positive things, stay away from the negative because it doesn’t do anything good for our team that you want to report all the negative things that happen and that’s all you want to talk to us players about. We live for one thing and that’s to play football and not to entertain you people in the media.”
