Tasker: We knew Belichick wouldn't do it
If he knew that, why try to approach him then? Trying to make him look even more aloof just so Sarah Jessica Sharpe could ramble on and on with marbles in his mouf?
That was also my first thought when seeing the thread title.
BB isnt required to do a post game interview by the NFL. Post game press conference, yes.
All they do is ask stupid questions like "Do you wish youd called the timeout sooner at the end of the first half ?"
Wow, Steve. What rare clairvoyance you possess. All the rest of the millions watching were sure BB would cheerfully agree to be interviewed. So, in essence, you and CBS asked him, knowing he would refuse and then you'd be free to make it an issue. What pros...
Kind of like we knew the Bills weren't going to win any of those superbowls.
I need to apologize. My response above was a knee-jerk reaction made before I watched the clip. Once I did watch it, it was obvious that Tasker was very gracious and complimentary about BB and that situation. Even Pipsqueak Mazz admitted feeling differently about BB and the situation after hearing Tasker's explanation. God, anytime I have to admit feeling similarly to Squeaky about any issue is cause for concern and embarrassment.
I heard this on the radio today; I'm not sure how many people here are actually listening to what he said. Summary:
In preproduction on the days before the game the subject of a post-lost interview came up; Belichick had done on after the 2006-07 AFCCG loss and told CBS/Trasker he'd rather not, he wasn't very good at it. After the gane, Trasker said, CBS asked Patriots media folks to request an appearance from Belichick â€” but also gave names of some players should BB decline â€” which he did. Sounded like everyone basically did their job.
Of course Sharpe blew it up by making a big deal of it â€” while not knowing the background. Trasker never made it a big issue and he seems not to exactly love the idea that Sharpe did. What I thought was interesting was Trasker said he's done a lot of radio spots around the country since last week and has told this story countless times. Yet, of course, it doesn't get picked up by any media. I know, go figure.
In summary, Shannon Sharpe is an idiot?
That's actually a question I'd like an answer to.
Me too Steve. My bad. I actually thought you were going to win the first one.
Seriously though. If there was a dislike post I would hit it on my own post many times. Just thought it was going to be another attack.
anybody inform the jackass faced marble mouth, Shannon Dulle of this set of facts?
someone needs to stuff a pillowcase full of horse manure and whack him in the face with it, then dump it out all over his stupid, jackass face.
figuratively speaking of course....
I'm sensing a trend.
A mistake on the internet?
None of us have EVER done that!
Liked Tasker as a player. Glad to still feel that way about him.
good interview, just wished this came out sooner. because all you hear from non-NE fans is that BB is a classless sore loser. the damage has been done, and just gives more ammo to the haters.
the damage has been done, and just gives more ammo to the haters.
yeah, but the haters are shootin' blanks....
Of course the answer is yes, but Hernandez should have gone out of bounds.
Most defenses are trying to keep you from going out of bounds to stop the clock and Hernandez does the opposite.
Pretty neat insight from Tasker. Too bad it wasn't kicked to the TV guys, but they love to pile on anyway. :bricks:
Bill makes himself ugly to the media. He doesn't help them. He embarrasses them when they ask dumb questions. He tells them only what he wants to tell them and he never provides any insight that an opposing coach might be able to use. He gets butthurt when the Pats lose. He is who he is and doesn't try to change for anyone. He plays no PC media games.
As a result, we should continue to expect that they will be unusually hard on him and opportunistic about it.
And I don't want him to change a thing regarding the media. Zero. Keep doing what you're doing and accept the inevitable petty nonsense from them.
