Tony Wyllie on why "NO MEANS NO!"

 While I don't have a ton of sources, I do have some contacts. One being with TMZ and say what you will about TMZ, they do find a ton of breaking sports related news. Here's an update on why Tony Wyllie had a "blow up" with a reporter from ESPN Deportes at the end of the Redskins victory on Monday Night Football.

The Washington Redskins PR guy who rushed Colt McCoy away from a live interview with ESPN Deportes tells TMZ Sports there's a good reason he hurried the QB -- he didn't want Colt to miss the coach's post-game speech.

The interaction went viral -- by the Redskins PR guy famously screaming to the reporter, "NO MEANS NO!"

Now, we spoke with Tony Wyllie -- the Senior VP of Communications for the Skins -- who tells us, "We wanted to get Colt in to hear coaches post-game speech."

He adds, "I wasn't denying access. I wanted Colt to hear coach talk. I felt we needed to get him inside."

Wyllie says, "Right after the speech, Colt went out and did the interview. I explained the situation to them. They were happy in the end."

As for the contentious moment, Wyllie says, "Normally we set these [post-game interviews] up before [the end of the game]. They'll say, 'This is who we want to talk to.' They didn't do that."
