Dallas Radio Station Prank in Pats-Pokes Post-Game Pressers

    "Apparently the Dallas Cowboys Media Relations Staff has taken "freedom of the press" to whole new levels by allowing a complete clown access to Sunday's post-game press conferences.

    "Using a tone and syntax reminiscent of old Movietone newsreel audio, the quetionable questioner was allowed to act goofy to not only head coach Bill Belichick but also Tom Brady, meaning no one in Big D had the brains to bounce the bozo after his first unprofessional, embarrassing and attention-grabbing line of questioning. True, it's only a post-game press conference, but some level of decorum and professionalism should be expected. A circus atmosphere is not what the NFL is looking for, we are certain.

    "At least one member of the Boston media was stunned by the pathetic excuse for a sports journalist and wondered to Shots, "You'd think he'd have his credential revoked, right?"

    How the hell does Rich Dalrymple let this happen?

    I would hope that radio station has their season credential revoked.

    True HB, but that audio is high comedy. Especially Brady's reactions - "I don't know what the hell that means, but..."

    I'm not arguing the comedic aspect of the audio clips. But that wasn't the time or venue to try to be funny.

    I used to think Stuttering John was funny as hell.

    But that was Stuttering John.

    I think when some dunce stands up and asks questions like that, the rest of the media should set upon them and throw them from the place of work.

    Hilarious. And it was the only time that Brady broke that monotone crap about not caring about record, blah, blah, blah.

    What a douchsnozzle....

    I understand wanting to have a schtick.

    But not the time or place. You wanna fuck around? Cool. But dont' get in the way of working journalists just for a half-assed soundbite.
  10. Most postgame pressers, especially those involving the Patriots, are nothing but half-assed soundbites. At least this was entertaining.

    Now the whole nation has been exposed to 1920s Reporter Guy.

    Believe it or not, the radio station in question just won the Marconi Award for best sports station in the U.S.

    lighten up people. it's a freakin football game press conference. and good grief, to take some holier-than-thou stance about "getting in the way of working journalists" is more ridiculous than the stunt you're bitching about. i'd be willing to bet that not one "working journalist" had their job made any more difficult by this so-called travesty.

    rock on, 1920s reporter guy, and rock on, ktck the ticket!
