Why Do People Even Bother Asking Bill Belichick Questions?
Classic Bill Belichick answer. If you’re a beat reporter covering the New England Patriots, what the hell is even the point in waking up in the morning? The funny thing is, the reporter who asked that question probably stressed out about it and thought about the phrasing for a long time. He probably thought he was going to win a Pulitzer for hard-hitting questions about facing Peyton Manning’s offense.
Sports media and “access” is so silly. Why do news organizations even bother showing for these press conferences? If no one shows up to a press conference and there’s no coverage, did it even happen?
