I can careless how he acts to the media. Its the media.
If you want to bash Sing bash him on the losing, playcalling, clock management, etc... stop being whiney little girly boys and stop complain about every little thing.
He's the public face of the Niners....he embarrasses us all (organization, fans, himself) when he acts like a buffoon.
As pointed out earlier, if he really wanted to make it go away, he could have just played it cool and dismissed it.
Instead, he made it into a huge issue that will now not go away.
He's just proving on so many levels that he is not capable of handling the pressures of this job.
The correct way for Sing to have responded would have been to say this:
"Look, the article says a group of players came to me over the summer with complaints about Jimmy Raye. I know from personal experience that this is not true. So why should I believe anything else in this article? It's based on "'unnamed' sources.
"And I trust that my players are grown men with whom I have enough of a bond that they would feel comfortable bringing issues like this to me if they had them. And if they do, I will respond. But we keep that behind closed doors."
Then he could have met any other questions with "no further comment".
What he did instead, was to legitimize the story, make it bigger, and make himself and the organization look unprofessional.
