In response to CablesWyndBairn's comment:
Felger and Mazz are trying to get listeners. I didn't hear the exchange, but the fact that Reiss went on the show was mission accomplished for the Sports Hub. They thrive on controversy and controversy = ratings.
Reiss is fair, objective, and admits when he is wrong. If most people were like that then the world would be a much better place. That he has to defend his credentials and work to those two spin masters is beyond ironic.
That's is the irony, isn't it? Reiss had info we didn't have (Welker and his agent were looking for 8 mil per, 3 years) and the two hyenas didn't believe it.
What a joke.
They basically came right out and admitted how jaded they are by covering the Pats through the years, and how their experiences means Reiss's info is bogus. The arrogance of it.
Reiss deserves a lot more credit than he was given. Felger and Mazz cut him off repeatedly, too. It was very similar to how they treated Jon Kraft in October of 2011 when they were praisnig Woody Johnson, Tannenbaum and REx Ryan. Kraft was incredulous and basically said "wait and see what happens to the Jets".
Their problems is the anti-BB bias, which is what their agenda is. So, they can't see how dumb they look tossing facts and logic out the window. It's embarrassing, really. At some point, you're a professional in what you do, and they just have no responsibllity or accountablity.
They basically just get paid to mouth off recklessly.
The anti-BB bias comes from the fact BB doesn't give the two hyenas and others what they want like other coaches do. So they have to be creative and think about what to say in certain situation the Patriots are have created and it makes it difficult for them because they do not have credible information to base their OPINIONS on. So yes there is a jealousy factor to consider.
