WTF, Avery?

    I thought Sefko handled it well, considering Avery was being an unneccesary dickhead to him.

    The "don't stutter" line was bush. Avery owes him an apology.
  2. Yeah, for some reason, "don't stutter" turns it from an uneasy confrontation to a jackass move from a pissed-off coach.

    The "don't stutter" thing is what irritates me, too. Total bullshit, which if I am Sefko is the first thing I tell Avery when we're alone. I don't know if they've been having problems this year, but that was inappropriate.

    Hey Avery, who's stuttering now?  ;D

    Other than the "dopnt stutter" bit, I dont have a problem with his reaction. I might not like to be put in that spot, but I understand what he's doing too.

    What's worse, stuttering or having a voice like my little sister

    Like everyone else here, I had the biggest problem with the "don't stutter" remark. What do you think the reaction would be if Sefko had said, "Only if you stop talking like my little sister"? Does a reporter have a right to say anything like that if he's insulted in such a way? Would his or her credentials get revoked?

    I don't blame Sefko for not coming up with the perfect answer on the spot, but his response to Avery should have been something like, "I don't want to appear to be biased either way, so I don't think it's appropriate for me to give an opinion." Every journalist probably ought to be prepared to handle a situation like that, where the subject turns his question back on him.
