He was asked about the Roddy White smack talk and whatever players smack talked Lofton before the game. Thus he was giving them a hard time for it but no less than 8 words later admits to talking trash on the field and "never wanting to be mic'd up".
I personally don't care if he does. I'm just baffled that Saints fans call Atlanta classless given the recent crap NO players have done lately (strictly talking against Atlanta, not the bounty crap). That is all. I actually find it all amusing, rouses the fans up

Trash talking during games is par for the course for everyone. But when you trash an entire city before the game you are just giving the opposition that much more motivation. I'm not complaining because it helps us. Roddy white needs to think a little bit more about his team and quit spouting off every stupid thought that pops into his head. That's how I'd feel if I were a falcon fan. I'm starting to think that roddy white is a cancer in that clubhouse.

There's a significant difference between "In-Game" trash talking and "Pre-Game Warmups" tt. The problem here is that Witherspool went out of his way and interrupted the Saints' warmups in order to trash talk the players. This is unprecidented, and it is not an acceptable part of the football culture.
