    Apologies for one more off beat thread before the season officially begins...

    This occurred to me after the Carolina game.
    I would like the media to take a long look at the post game handshake between Fox and BB. If memory serves, there's a good deal of respect between Fox and BB, yes? So, take away the media circus surrounding BB's/Mangini's handshake and tell me what was different? It would be nice to acknowledge that this particular "storyline" was just so much BS to sell papers etc, and that we can finally stop attaching so much value to how well our coaches shake hands!

    So since I'm apparently in my own little fantasy world this morning....Go ahead media, rise to the challenge, what was different from the Fox/BB picture to the Eric/BB one?:rolleyes:

    No no, she meant "challange", you know, in French.

    You need to put a (sic) after "here" or else it looks like you misspelled it ;)

    The coverage of the BB/EM handshakes quite possibly might be the most asinine and ludicrous topic in NFL media history. Who has any clue whether or not BB had a legitimate reason? More importantly, who frickin' cares one way or another? Can you imagine Lombardi being criticized for something like this.

    Other contenders?

    The topic of every single article/column ever written by Peter King.

    Agree. Probably afraid they'd make the WR's seem like a bunch of stiffs!:p
