i'm wondering if rivera brought up IR or if it was just something that a reporter brought up and asked him about and rivera said "we aren't ruling it out". could be a big old smokescreen brought up by punk beat reporters trying to cause a stir and make themselves seem relevant.
not counting on all that...but i wouldn't put it past any beat reporters to do something like this.
I was waiting till someone would try to make this sound like he's pulling a Belichick.
