I liked it. The poor media over the years has finally woken up a sleeping Giant. Richardson won't take their poo. They should have interviewed Fox if they wanted the cheap dime store, feel good responses.

No I didn't take offense to it, but I didn't need a pie chart for it either, I could understand what he was saying without it. Again, my concern was more with his attitude throughout it.

And I don't think the media or women's right groups rallying behind Fogarty is necessary or cool. It was clear she was fine with it, even there, and he wasn't being intimidating with it... My concerns were pretty much everything else.

So I guess I didn't agree with Bonnell 100% as far as the treatment of Fogarty.

Darin gantt has been known to act like a condescending douche to panther fans who disagree with him, so I don't feel bad in the least that Jerry served it back at him.

Me thinks JR has a proud old man.
WHo has a VERY dry sense of humor.
And NO patience for bullshit.

watched it live.

I'll admit I was surprised by his bluntness, but wow......

I don't want a smiley face put onto the current situation for the sake of good soundbites. No need to be politically correct. That will do nothing for the team. Reporters have been taking shots at him all year, no surprise he got fed up.

Wasn't anywhere near as offensive as some of the previous posters (or article) would like to make it out to be.

Question: "JR are you cheap??" JR: "No, I paid fox 11 million." Question: "But how do we KNOW you won't be cheap?" JR: "You stupid fug does it look like I'm cheap?" reporter: "N-no sir!"

I'm not saying I was sitting there with my jaw dropped in disgust. I actually laughed at a few of the things he said, but simultaneously, I was thinking "wow, this isn't the JR I remember."

Afterward, some of it did seem offensive because of the context. I'm sure he was pissed about the "cheap" comments, but that was mostly national media, not local, yet he chastised the local guys for it.

And after not talking to the media in this many years, I don't get how everyone was saying he was blunt... Many of the questions he laughed off or joked around and didn't answer directly.

Someone still should acknowledge that there was some dishonesty in there somewhere about the Harbaugh "contact" question... At least it wasn't full disclosure it appears.

I'm all for jokes and fun, but today I wanted more answers than jokes. I heard someone mention earlier on the radio today that someone should've asked about Smitty's situation. Yet, I think the media was so shellshocked, that if they had that question in mind, they quickly forgot it.

I know most of us are on one side or the other of this issue, and most likely won't agree with the other side... But, I just wanted to express how I saw it. I really will feel a lot better about JR depending on how the coaching situation and drafting goes...

Listened to it live. It was embarrassing. If he soooo needed to know who everyone in attendance was, he needed to come in prior to the conference to find out or have a camera with a feed to his pre-conference area and someone brief him.

As someone from here on twitter said, he sounded like that old, drunk uncle.

In no way shape or form should/do I want him to say anything about the coaching search. We will be fine watching the press conference. If we know it, everyone knows. Pretty basic concept.

Coaches/Owners aren't gonna tip their hands as far as the off season goes, nor should they. Why people expect certain subjects discussed in public is beyond me.
