Default Re: Media Day Gripes

as a player,deion was one of my favorites,but as a person talking and giving insights,wow...i mean if youre job means that you have to be somewhat of a spokesman should'nt you know how to spoke.......and i agree,marshall is in the same league,i hate when the games are on nfl network like last years steelers vs rams game and they were the annoucers doing the game........i love the steelers,but you could'nt pay me to watch media day,i give you alot of credit if you watched it,youre a better fan than i am.......the whole stubiness of it is too much for me.......

Deion Sanders - The fact that he can hold a job where he gets paid to talk should be an encouragement to those wanting to get in to this field.

Marshall Faulk - See above comment

Hines Ward - I love Hines play as much as any other Steeler fan but enough of the knee. Holding the microphone up to his knee to be interviewed was a definite low point.

James Harrison - Would have liked to heard his response to a stupid question or two.

I disagree. I have always hated Deion Sanders as a player and now as a talking head. He is difficult to watch, hard to understand, and has no chemistry with Rich Eisen.

But... I will say this about him: he actually asks the hard questions. Nearly all other media types talk trash on air but when actually confronting that player, they go soft, backtrack, or just change their attitude. Deion will call out a player then back it up right on camera. I have even seen him straight up admit he was wrong. He didnt have to let Ryan Clark challenge him on air, but he did, and they planned that in advance just for the cameras. Now that is what I want our of a sports analyst. Leave the stupid "Madden Video Game" questions to the 10 year olds.

And Ward was being a smart a$$ with his knee interview. All the media talking about his injury is getting ridiculous... Why not just let them interview the freakin knee? I love it!

I can't stand Faulk or Deion. They both suck at their current jobs.
