Works for the Santa Rosa press democrat. Matt Maiocco needs to walk over to his office/cubicle and kick his a$$.
Maybe it is time Maiocco should stop sucking Sing off and start asking some hard questions too.
Until we are above .500 and heading to the playoffs, we should be putting Singletary over the coals every f**king day
Beat reporters have no interest in raking guys over the coals. Their jobs depend on having coaches & top players on the team feeling ok to talk to them when they ask questions. Good luck getting those interviews for your column after you start throwing your own opinion in that they suck at their jobs when you write about them.
Ah -- but sir -- I must respectfully disagree. And this is one reason why I left sports broadcasting. I couldn't bring myself to give verbal BJ's to players or coaches who sucked. As a reporter, you MUST be independent and objective. If you ever get into the routine where you care about the feelings of a player or coach first -- your days as an effective, independent and respected journalist are at an end.
You want positive spin? Cross over to the dark side of PR. Sell out. I did.
I'm surprised that someone like Cohn hasn't done so already. There are a few out of every generation who resist the lure and temptation of extra money and benefits. Cohn appears to be one of them.
I want him to put Singletary's butt on the carpet after each ugly loss, especially when he keeps rolling out a proven bust in Alex Smith. That's Cohn's job. He's not there to kiss the coach's behind or stroke Alex Smith's hair.
He's there to ask questions and get answers. And if the question is: "Coach, why does the team that you coach suck so bad?" Then so be it.
