The annual award is presented to the Packers players voted to have best-helped reporters covering the team to do their jobs effectively. Tonight, however, was a different story. Moments after the Raiders lost a close game to Kansas City, Davante Adams is seen pushing a member of the media to the ground when walking to the locker room.

Davante Adams may not know about the idea of the (problematically named) Three Chinese Curses, but he's living them.
– May you live in interesting times.
– May you be recognized by powerful people.
– May you get what you wish for.

Adams was upset as the game ended. He and teammate Hunter Renfrow collided downfield on a fourth-and-1 pass that fell incomplete and practically ended the game. Adams slammed his helmet down in anger as he reached the sideline. In the locker room afterward, in comments shown on ESPN, Adams apologized.
“Before I answer anything else, I want to apologize to the guy — some guy running off the field, and he ran, jumped in front of me when we were coming off the field and I bumped into him, kind of pushed him and I think he ended up on the ground,” Adams said. “I wanted to say sorry to him for that. That was frustration mixed with him running, literally running in front of me, and I shouldn’t have responded that way. But that’s how I initially responded so I want to apologize to him for that.”
