I'm surprised no one mentioned that during the interview. That's pretty cool though.
I really like watching these After Hours segments, but it would be nice if they spent a little less time reading out tweets that the interviewee has no response for. I know they like to put players on the spot a bit, but they know where the line is, they should stick to questions and comments that the player can actually respond to.
I agree with this completely. Twice Oake said, "you don't have to answer this, but...". Ok, if he isn't expected to answer it, then the question shouldn't be asked. Humour in interviews is awesome, but not when it's thrown in like that.
Also I wouldn't consider myself the best at reading people, but it seemed like the first injury question bothered Higgins off a bit. Perhaps at that point Oake could've taken a note to avoid the subject, or at least put a bit more of a positive spin on it rather than focusing on the injury itself.
It could just be me, but it seems like the guy has trouble gauging players' reactions to his questions, or at the very least he has trouble adjusting the interview accordingly.
