Rivera Walks out on Media Session

My problem isn’t with tough questions. I love tough questions. But when it’s been made clear that he’s not going down that road, you pull back a little bit. Everybody has a hand in it. 

And reporters jumping on talk shows afterwards doing an autopsy on the whole thing just seems a little self-serving. To that end, there is actually a game on Sunday and some worthwhile things to talk about other than a quarterback who clearly isn’t going to be playing that day.

I don't think Gantt was actually at the press conference. Nor was Bailey.

You or I probably would have asked different questions, but Igo is right that for what's probably the majority of fans, Newton is story 1, 1A, 1B, etc.

Lmao is this guy serious? Pay me what he is making and I’ll answer the same damn question all day every day. Aww poor Ronny.. those mean reporters didn’t listen to you when you warned them.

Gantt and Bailey are discussing it on WFNZ right now.

Both agree that while press conferences are a pain in the ass, this isn't a good look and it makes Ron seem weak.

 Bet you can find a presser with Belichick doing the same 

reporters taking that stance is such a shock

A thoughtful piece on the strategy this weekend will get 1/100th the views than a piece on Cam Newton this week. That is the harsh truth of the matter. People really just want to know what's going on with Cam. The team is an afterthought for most people.

I could only imagine him having to deal with the NY media if he can't handle Charlotte.

Ron did fold to a bunch of reporters, what does that say about how he responds on the field? Yeah it was BS but he didn't handle it well and it's not like he is in his 20's learning the ropes...

Belichick was addressed earlier in the thread.

If you win as much as he does, you could basically moon reporters on your way out the door if you want to.

With Ron's record? Not so much.

How in the utter fug can coaches (or players) sit through these asinine press conference and media availability portions of the week without seriously contemplating taking their own life?

Not a Rivera fan by any means, but the fact that he's put up with Joe Person "questions" and robotic non-sensical nothing words spewing from the pie holes of people who are barely more knowledgeable about the game than a local Publix grocer, for NINE years deserves him a purple heart. 

These flock of idiots are literally only employed to get coaches and players to slip up or mis-speak, so they can run to their affiliated media source and collect their 3,450 page views. When they're not attempting to get players to humiliate themselves, they're asking really ground breaking and hard hitting questions like "Is having veteran players a benefit?" or "Is it helpful to have smart players on the team....?" 

Rivera walking out on these ass clowns may be literally the best thing he's done in 9 years. Too bad he can't coach like he just trated David Newton (or whomever).

yeah, but that ignores the fact Bill behaved the same way before he won all those games.   It isn't like Belichick started acting like that only when he got Brady and became a good coach.  I mean, what Ron did isn't really a story or unusual.  I mean how many coach's have drawn a line in the sand w/ reporters and bounced? 

and when Bill was w/ the Browns he still wouldn't of been as polite as Ron was stopping at the door on his way out for a couple more words.

Oh, it's definitely a story, at least in Pantherland. And it's probably not a story Ron needed given everything else that's going on.

Now, if he wins on Sunday, it'll probably go away. But if he loses on Sunday, then he has to stand in front of the same reporters he walked out on having just lost a game.

Not hoping we lose but if/when we do, I can't wait to watch him squirm.

Pat Kirwan is one of the most respected football men in the media. 

I have no idea if he actually said any of this, but if he did, it’s probably coming from a place of experience. 

That was the gist, obviously he said it a lot more eloquently than I summarized.
