IN MY BOOK HE IS AN JERK SINCE HE KNOWS FRICKING WELL THAT HE CAN BEAT A REPORTER WITH ONE HAND TIED TO HIS BACK. THAT IS WHAT I CALL BEING A BULLY. AND AGAIN, SOME REPORTERS DESERVE AN ASSWHIPPING BUT IN THIS OCCASSION I THINK STRAHAN IS THE JERK.[/b]
I can't believe I'm about to do this, nospin, you should probably sit down for this one..........
I agree 100% with Cubiche/nospinzone1. What did Strahan expect? Here's the chronology of events:
- Strahan gives a juicy snippet to a beat reporter - ON THE RECORD - on Wednesday and the beat reporter tries to follow up the comment the following day and gets brushed off when Strahan says, "I don't give interviews on Thursdays."
- So , the reporter, doing her job
, goes over to Burress and relays the comments made by Strahan and Burress gets understandably upset.
- After being confronted by Burress, Strahan then collects a group of reporters (not including the one he made the original comment to) to lash out at said reporter. Mind you, he has already stated that he doesn't give interviews on Thursdays.
Strahan is 100% wrong here and HE knows it. He goofed and is looking for someone to pin the blame on. He has played football for how many years? He should know better. And further - HE PLAYS FOOTBALL IN NEW YORK WHERE HE KNOWS FULL WELL WHAT THE MEDIA IS LIKE.
Here's an idea Mike, if you don't want that sort of thing out there, then shut your pie-hole
