Exactly. Just imagine having to face all those familiar faces and answer these questions with the bright lights in your face. Anybody who thinks this stuff is easy is a dumb ass.

These players and coaches can't win with some fans. If Delhomme wouldn't have done this, people would criticize him for not manning up and facing the public.

Bull f'ing crap.

I've never in my life seen a player get fired and then call a press conference. Have you? It was completely unnecessary.

He could have just given an interview or two to whichever reporter he wanted and been done with it.

He no longer has any obligation to this team. Even if they asked him to do this, he didn't have to do a damn thing they said.

You were not obligated to watch it either, but you did.

Why? You did read where I said that crying was fine right? Just do it with your family. There's absolutely no need to go bawl on national TV for being fired.

Honestly, I think it's be hard for someone like him to not get emotional after working at a place for so many years and then being released suddenly. I don't think he means to, it's just his reaction LESS THAN 24 HOURS after he's released.

So, shut the fug up and have a little sympathy. Jesus H. fuging Christ.

I love all the internet message board tough-guys here calling Jake and Fox pussies for crying... must be nice to sit behind your keyboard and tell everyone how tough you are.

If you put as much heart and soul into something as Jake put into this team and don't cry when it's over, then you are a sociopath and you should be locked up somewhere.

Fox owes his success as a HC in large part to Jake... for 7 years these guys have worked, ate and slept on how to make each other and the Carolina Panthers successful and now that's over. Any good coach is more than just a coach to his players. How can a coach inspire his team if they just think of him as "the boss"?

There are allot of 13 year-old boys on here that get uncomfortable watching a grown man cry... I feel sorry for anyone that has never experienced anything powerful enough to make them cry, some of you need to get out from behind the keyboard and get a life.

Ask yourselves this question: If one of your coworkers at wherever you might work was fired today and was absolutely crying his eyes out as he was clearing out his desk or leaving the restaurant or fill in the blank, wouldn't you think that guy was being a little overdramatic? Why should it be any different if it's Jake Delhomme, ESPECIALLY since he's getting paid $12.7 million anyway?

If you all want to feel bad for someone, feel bad for me! I never even got to play in the NFL and I definatly didnt get 12 MILLION DOLLARS when I lost my job!!!!!!!!

Cry me a river

Ok, the man was lucky enough to play in the NFL. For that reason, we're not allowed to feel sorry for him?

I don't feel bad for you, because you're an unsympathetic dick-head.

Huh? I watched it because I was curious. Your point?

Crying in a public press conference? Yes, they're pussies. Either suck it up or don't have it.
