    I think you meant:

    OT: DA makes fool of himself off field after making slightly bigger fool of himself on field

    He is lying, though. He was laughing with Latui when they were getting killed during the game. It didn't look good.

    I realize these guys are human, but he should know better than to be yucking it up on the sidelines when his team is getting killed. Getting miffed about being asked about it doesn't change that.

    The announcers, either Jaws or Gruden ripped him for the interception for locking on the receiver, telegraphing the pass and being slow on the delivery...I thought it was a reasonable question and Anderson handled it poorly.

    He handled it poorly but, I don't really think the media needs to know what DA is talking about on the sidelines. Just my opinion though.

    Reporter is d-bag.

    You can't lose your **** at work, especially when you're collecting millions, just be nice to the dumb reporter, it's a part of the job.

    Re: OT:DA owns reporter

    Are you kidding???????

    He was LAUGHING on the sidelines after the interception. It's RIGHT THERE ON THE VIDEO you linked.

    The question was a completely valid one. The reporter was right on and, in fact, was WAY TOO POLITE in the questioning.

    Lemme ask you this, if Bledsoe during his worst games of throwing off the back foot EVER pulled something like that on MNF laughing on the sidelines with Max Lane, would YOU not want a reporter to at least deign to ask his Highness about it?

    My favorite part of the video is where DA says "I wasn't laughing" and the reporter tells him it's right there on the screen and DA does a 180 and starts spewing,
    "That's fine, that's fine, that's fine....." before finding the motivation and words to muster up a new head of indignation.

    I thought the reporter was out of line. Didn't look like he was having a good old time to me. It could have been anything that brought that facial expression, it could have been sarcasm. From reading the thread, I thought he might have been yucking it up out there.

    Ummm....Gruden ripped DA a new one for it right there on the MNF game. It's not like the reporter invented it.

    Good points. I don't know what he expected DA to say though.

    It's too bad Dennis Green isn't still the cardinals coach.

    Yeah after asking him the first couple of times was ok imo, but to continually repeat it over and over again when its obvious DA doesn't want to answer is carrying it to far. After about the 4th or 5th time it becomes about the reporter making himself the story.

    Correct, the reporter was only doing his job. If I was a Cardinals fan I'd certainly want to hear Anderson explain what he was thinking, and he didn't.

    I think it's entertainment. I feel bad for the guy, but he should NOT be an NFL QB.

    I had to laugh when the announcers found great joy in discussing NEXT week's game. Even got into the weather, lol.

    Yea that was great, even they don't care about the cardinals & 49ers. Whoever wins the division is probably just going to be sent home wildcard weekend. The cards in 08 were pretty bad heading into the playoffs though.

    Reporter is an a-hole trying to score cheap points.

    People deal with stress in different ways. Some people try and make light of a bad situation.

    I know one girl who told jokes to her friends at her dad's wake. She didn't find her dad's death funny or humorous. But laughing about what some of the people wearing or other things she found funny at the moment was how she coped. One busy body decide to scold her for this. That women was an d-bag. This reporter is a d-bag.

    I am f*cking tired of the d-bags that refuse to allow those people who deal with stress through humor from doing so.

    And those of you who ripped Tate for laughing on the side lines after his second incomplete pass a few games back are d-bags too.

    Some people deal with stress through humor. If you have a problem with that you can go eff yourself!

    What is he supposed to do, be in mourning because he threw a pic? It happens. Teams have bad games. Frustrating for the fans, but so what.

    Pretty much. The yucking it up part pretty much shows the team has thrown in the towel on the season. (Then again, we are talking about the Cardinals here.)

    But going off on the reporter only makes it worse. People will remember that far longer than they might remember the thing on the sidelines. Bring up Ryan Leaf and what's the first thing that comes to mind? That clip of him freaking out on the media guy in the locker room.

    Can you imagine, whatever 8-8 (or worse) team that wins that division is going to be seeded higher than either the Pats or Jets

    Totally and 100% agree with you Hoodie. It was kind of pathetic on the reporters part. He made it out to be about him. Kicking him when he was down. What was he hoping to solve there? "Yes I laughed because it is fun getting blown out"...."He told me a funny joke"...."That was bad judgement on my part"....ok, then what.

    Not very good at his craft..at all. He should just apply for a position at TMZ, that would be more his speed.

    Some people laugh or smile sometimes. Don't over-analyze it. It is who they are. If you don't think he has the credentials to be an NFL QB (leadership, focus or whatever), have the balls to say it. Don't be a sorry azz scum about it and beat around the bush.

    If I was his boss he would already be fired...

    Sorry but DA is the one that should be fired. Sad, pathetic attempt to deflect his behaviour. A true professional would have attempted to explain it. If you guys can explain so should he.

    Bull****. He should have told the reporter to eff off at the first question.

    While I am hardly a big fan of Randy Moss, I think Randy has one thing right. Don't answer the media's questions, if there is gonna be an interview ask your own questions and then answer them.

    I just saw it, and DA did NOTHING wrong. Player whispered something in his ear, and he cracked barely a smile. Then some jackarse reporter is trying to make it sound like he was belly laughing on the sidelines.

    Reporter is a jerk, and DA acted as I would have.

    The heat he is receiving for that is ridiculous. It was a smile on the sidelines and even that was for only a moment or two. It could have been anything. Does anyone see players immediately after games? Even the losing team players are yucking it up and smiling and laughing. I'm sure they are still angry, frustrated at having lost but doesn't mean they can't take a moment to be human.
