    I don't think Childress likes PP.O...

    http://www.startribune.com/sports/vikings/28431639.html

    Coach and quarterback are targets for blogs and e-mails
    ...
    Childress held his day-after news conference and was asked about the perception that he has tied himself stubbornly to Jackson at quarterback rather than considering other options.

    He asked in return if this perception was backed by the results of a "Gallup Poll."

    The reporter said it was more a case of the quiet words of e-mailers reacting to Sunday's defeat.

    "There's nothing quiet with e-mails or on blogs," he said.
    ...
    The media session soon ended. As Childress walked past an old sportswriter, he offered this sentence of advice:

    "Don't look at those blogs."
    At least he knows we exist...

    Well at least we know our various protests and complaints are loud enough to be heard. And if Childress hears them, Zygi must hear them as well.
    ;D

    You have to wonder who offers a less biased views... fans who have a passion for a team winning and thus an emotional bias... or coaches/players who have both a financial bias as well as their ego tied to decisions they've previously made?
    Which are really in a better place to analyze?
    Sure, we generally defer to coaching staffs as having more information between seeing the tapes and watching practices... but are they really in a position to make better positions given their different set of biases?
    The true measure of a man is what he'd do knowing he'd never be found out.

    I don't really give a shit if Childress likes PP.O or not.
    It kinda sounds like he's getting a little salty with reporters there...

    For the record, I'm not all that impressed with you either Childress.
    Proud member of PP.O since April 5th, 2003!

    Granted, I took a little bit of leeway.
    When Childress references emails and blogs, I take that to infer to all interactive online media sources, which would include blogs, email threads, fan forum, podcasts, and social networking sites.
    I don't think that it is too far of a stretch, and I think that saying "blogs, emails, fan forums,podcasts and social networking sites" would have been a bit too wordy to say in a presser without adding any real additional impact.

    Given the somewhat lighthearted intent of this thread, I figured it would be OK to infer a little bit...

    I actually listened to the press conference, and he was not testy at all.
    In fact it was surprisingly upbeat given the record.
    When a reporter asked if it was fashionable to boo the QB when things go wrong, he said it was more fashionable to boo the head coach (or something along those lines).
    He was joking with the reporters the whole time.
