Over the yeas, it is very evident BB is more effusive in his pre game comments with the media. Yes, the media does ask more focused questions, and BB is more engaging.
The post game comments are the nightmare, evn after wins...with the mediaunprepared on what to ask, making it even a more awkward exchange.
Bottom line, BB doesnt make their jobs any easier, nor does he have to. It simply seems there are 31 other head coaches who are a bit more accomodating.
This is the part I always get confused with. When you say, bit more 'accommodating' what do you mean and to whom? I don't think it's his job to make the media's job easier to make sure the fans get an answer to everything they're wanting to know. It's to win games and he does that at an extremely high rate. The post-game questions are tough because I can see how he or any other coach would want time to process the game before deciding what they wanted to share with everyone else.
everyone, media included, have a job to do. if BB simply accepted that it is that persons job to ask those questions, and he simply said, "I do not care to answer that question, next"...there is no problem.
There is no need to embarass someone trying to do their job, no need to be condescending.
I have been in a number of post game situations. It is now a cat and mouse game...the questions are mundane, the answers are even worse, and both parties understand neither will give an inch. So the focus is now "can we get BB to either blow his top to make a story, or can we get BB to embarrass himself to make a story". So far, neither has happend, and the press conferences are now a national joke, with BB being on the butt end. We have all seen the montage of BB pressers with him making faces, the monotone answers and the saying absolutely nothing while his lips are moving. The media has taken a "we will show him" attitude and makes his pressers a joke about him...
the NFL should wise up and realize this is a waste of everyones time.
That's utter garbage. HE has been the coach for 14 years and they can't figure out which questions he's going to sidestep?
Breer is all but antagonizing BB on constant basis for chrissakes.
The media should wise up and stop being so arrogant, realizing it's not about them, but the media is a conduit between the fans and the team. The media covering BB have been completely disinegenuous since 2005 or more so 2007.
They think they are owed something because of what BB has earned as a HOF coach.
dumbkoff...I said exactly that. the relationship has reached the point where the media knows they will get nothing, so they are simply baiting him...can't you read? I even threw you a bone;
You obviously notice I take Harve to the woodshed on every moronic thing he says...I have never taken him to task regarding the media's relationship with BB...nor the league office relationship with BB. I just threwup in my mouth, but Harve is correct. I simply want to add some perspective, there is a reason why there is conflict, and BB is at the root of it
