Yup, CDC has to learn how stuff works in the media world. I've dealt with the media, they probe and push for every piece of dirt they can; they tape you for 10 minutes; then they pick out 15 seconds of material that they think will give them the best footage (usually the stuff they can spin some way for maximum sensationalism) and put it on air. Remember, it's not about reporting the whole picture, it's about maximizing ratings which equals the biggest bucks because people gobble it up! Why do u think rags like the national enquiror are still around?
Are we really so narrow minded to believe that the players, coaches, management and owners watch the news after a game and base their opinions on each other upon the comments they see on tv? Especially after basically living with each other for 10 months of the year? So the players and coaches don't talk at all on those long plane rides, they just watch the sports and say 'man the coach doesn't respect me because he said my goal didn't matter'?
Or when the media, for the 1000th time asks the same question about a trade, that anyone gives a canned answer and CDC reads something into it, thinking there is a rift between the players and management? Seriously? It's a private business pulling in millions of dollars, and we think Gillis is lying to us in the press because he doesn't tell us everything he is doing all the time??!? Really people? Grow up!
