Bill Belichick before he got screwed by the media.
Bill was eventually run out of town by the Cleveland media. He was then portrayed as a madman who needs mental health care and ripped apart by the NY media sharks when he turned down the job as HC of the NYJ’s.
Is there any wonder why he is now consistently vague with the media?
Here’s a clip of Bill from his Cleveland days when he trusted the media. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOaGkPXn9LQ
I’m almost certain you won’t see BB doing any spoof cooking (or almost cooking) shows in the near future.

Hoya Paranoia and the glory years
During the Hoya's glory years the term "Hoya Paranoia" became indelibly linked to Thompson and Georgetown basketball program. The term was originally coined by Mark Asher of The Washington Post and used to describe Hoya fans’ insecurity toward pro-Maryland media bias, but it soon came to refer to the team’s unusual forced seclusion from the media and Thompson's suffocating control over his program. Unlike most programs of the day, Thompson's practices were closed to the media and the players were placed off-limits to the members of the press. Backers of Thompson would defend Thompson's actions as his way of protecting his program and its players from detrimental media coverage and attention. ..................
Thompson's greatest success as a coach was his ability to create an "us against them" mentality among his players. "
The best was a quote attributed to Thompson. To paraphrase, 'they say you have to kiss the media's *****, I"m not going to do that"
Sound familiar?? I was laughing halfway thru because it sounded so familiar.
