What's The Point of This?
« on: February 08, 2016, 06:35:44 am »
I respect reporters right to ask questions and get their story but is this really necessary? I'm not a huge fan of Newton but nobody deserves this.



Oh but it's part of his "job". He has to give his time to the media.

Not all media is like this, but these people are relentless and have no filter when it comes to being pests.

This is what really mattered...respect among competitors

I understand that the players have to be available after games, per the various leagues.  however, people shouldn't get shit in their britches when the players answer like Cam did.

I lost all respect for Manning after that post-game interview.  I figured he'd be an IPA guy. :nono

Like it or not it is part of his job and part of being leader. Also if you want to dance when you win then you have to lose with some grace. Not sure it is quite the issue are making it out to be but it is a bad look for Cam.

It does look bad and he could have handled it better but what is the point of continuing to hound him when he's not going to answer. It turns legitimate reporting into paparazzi chasing reality show reaction.

Are they not supposed to ask him any questions at all?

As for "hounding" him I didn't see him being hounded. That seems typical for press conferences. Also you hope at some point that he loosens up and finds something to by all about. So you keep asking questions. Not sure what you expect from the press but it didn't seem unfair.

Now if he was lynch or belichick and always answered like that than fine But cam has not been like that.

That pretty much seemed like a normal press conference with the exception of Cam.

I expected to see him being hammered with unfair questions. That was a normal post-game interview except for him acting like a petulant little bitch with his one-word answers. Lost quite a bit of respect for Cam after that display. Also lost some respect for Hedstrom after he started this cunty thread.

Glad FP brought up Belicheck. Dude is always a dick at press conferences so it's expected. Cam was runnng his mouth when he was winning so if he's just clearly sitting there pouting why even ask questions? I really couldn't care less if Cam looks back on it and "learns from his mistake". He's a douche and the media would have been better off leaving him up there alone by himself, but as usual they have to keep asking away just in case he changes his mood during the 2 minutes he's up there.

What's the cooling period after a Superbowl? 20....30 minutes. Yea, a guy is going to go from douche to best interview ever in that time frame after a loss. Oh, but wouldn't want to miss anything though. The public has a right to know dammit  and it's the presser media's job to report the obvious. Cam's a douche when he loses. Right. Got it....next?
