I've watched every interview and I can recall many times him referring the media to ask Trent as he would be able to tell you more about it. Wish I could recall a specific time but I know it's happened before. Players do the same thing they will say go ask the coach as they can better answer the question. I've seen the coaches say you should ask the player as well. The media time is something they have to do; if they didn't nobody would do it. They don't care about it because it's a waste of their time. They duck answers all the time and probably don't expect the media to go ask the other person if that's what they said resulting in the question likely being forgot about. And I edited my first post and added this:
Anyways, back on topic I think you got it all wrong, neither guy is like that. What gives you the impression that Baalke or Harbaugh care more about power than winning? Harbaugh's whole thing is the team the team the team. The guy gives credit to everyone else before taking it for him self and it reflects on the players as they do the same. Trent will probably tell you the same in that the coaches are the ones making this happen more so than him. He brings them in (some times with the help of the coaches) but he would probably say they have to do the work.
Edit: And Baalke stays out of the picture. The guy rarely talks to the media and when he does you can tell the whole time he doesn't want to be doing it. He isn't out there gloating like yeah look at the team I put together, this is my team. Doesn't seem power hungry at all, quite the opposite in my opinion. I can see this happening with bad organizations or bad teams and think it has recently. I thought it just came out about a GM and HC and their rift with each other. Just don't see it happening with an organization with a front office and staff like ours.
