Stupid Coddled Athletes

Chad Pennington of the New York Jets told reporters yesterday that it was a “privilege” for them to be reporting on him and his fellow athletes. Please … without reporters these precious athletes would be no more than glorified high school heros. I don’t think he understands just how quickly the tide of public sentiment can turn. Just look at hockey: something like 60% of people polled recently didn’t even know that hockey was not being played this winter.

Count me among those 60%

It's a privalege for the athletes to be making zillions of dollars playing a game. The fans make that possible. Without the fans, the players are nothing. With the reporters, the fans are clueless. If the fans are clueless, they largely cease to be fans.
