Of course, Belichick could be sipping a mai tai on the beach when any of this happens, and he's not the type to care what's written about him.
Belichick openly ignores #4. To say that he never does on field interviews begs the question of why. But beyond that, certain events call for a departure from habit, and losing an AFC title game in which you were heavily favored will be viewed by many---and I'm one of them---as one of those events. I am aware that none of this matters in the least to Belichick. But I wonder about Kraft.
best coach the jets ever had even it if was for a day or so
I would take him over rex any day of the week and twice on sundays-I would even help rex pack
who cares what he does before or after the game-it is about winning and losing-guy charged with murder won aka ray lewis and he is getting treated like he is a saint
BB, obviously upset about the outcome of the game, skips out on a post-game interview w/ CBS (yet holds his post-game press conference) and is the anti-christ. Rex and the Jets, obviously reeling after their 6-10 season, skip out on their end of season presser for several days.
Funny I certainly didn't see many fans here calling the Jets and/or Rex poor sports and scum.
Hahahaha. BB is a pathetic. Pos
Personally, I didn't have an issue when Peyton didn't do an interview after the game last week either. With that in mind, it would be hypocritical of me to suddenly have an issue with such a thing just because it's Belichick/a Pastriot.
This falls under the "DOOOOOON'T CAAAAAAARE" category. It's just not a big deal.
The postgame conversation on the field with Bill Belichick ... Harbaugh: "I'll treasure that conversation forever. Before the game, we talked, and he said maybe we should just skip the postgame handshake because it's such a circus. I said I didn't know; I thought we should do it, it's just the right thing to do. And we did. He was so classy, so gracious. Complimentary about how we played, about our game plan, about how tough it is to play us. I told him how much we pattern our organization around theirs, how much we study them.''
Bottom line, when i have a son I will do my best to explain to him that Bill Belichick and Rex Ryan are two of the poorest examples of how to conduct yourself. It's not just how you act when things are going well, but how you handle yourself when things are going bad. And both have failed in both situations.
To clarify, I don't care about doing an onfield interview immediately after a loss. But at some point between the end of the game and the press conference, both coaches should say a few words for the live coverage, rather than sending a player out to do it. If a coach wants to give non revealing answers, so be it, that is their right.
To compare Rexs end of season disappearance, it is just as bad, if not worse, and to have an owner tolerate/orchestrate it is embarassing. And anyone who thinks they have been let off lighter than bellichick around here just hasnt been paying attention.
I do wonder sometimes if bellichick has aspergers or some other reason for being the way he is. For a younger coach to have to explain to you that shaking hands is the right thing to do after a lifetime in the game, its laughable.
