There are two kinds of football coaches I despise. Fat fucks like Mark Mangino and Charlie Weis, and whiney bitches like Mike Gundy and Jeff Fisher.
Seems Fisher is pissed and upset because of a report filed by ESPN reporter Josina Anderson about Michael Sam’s showering habits. Apparently, Sam’s doing the same thing Jackie Robinson did — waiting until his teammates have finished showering before he takes his.
According to a very good article by NBC Sports writer Darin Gantt (in my opinion), Fisher said, “I’m extremely disappointed in her piece. I think it’s unethical. I think it’s very, very unprofessional. Not only the piece itself, the content. The manner in which she did it.”
Ah, man, that’s a shame Jeff. Because I have no doubt she wasn’t reporting to get to the truth, she was reporting for your approval. Because what you think means so much, not only to her, but to all of us writers.
Get a clue, Jeff. She was doing her job as a professional, which Gantt, to his credit, pointed out in his article as well.
Look. I doubt you’re really disappointed anyway. I suspect (again, in my opinion) you’re secretly elated. Now you have a great excuse to cut him. Sam’s become a distraction.
And I’m sure you will, you gutless swine. You’ll cut him, even though he earned his way on the team. He was a 7th-round draft pick and scored two sacks in the preseason. That’s called success, but you’ll cut him anyway, won’t you Jeff. I’ll apologize if I turn out to be wrong, but I doubt it. We’ll see by Sunday.
Do I seem angry? I am. Partly because of Fisher’s reaction to ESPN, but largely because of his past swinishness.
I’m still pissed at the whisper campaign Fisher started against Vince Young. Vince should at least be a backup quarterback in the NFL, but he’ll never get the chance thanks to Fisher’s backbiting.
And that’s something truly disappointing, unethical and unprofessional.

Did I miss a memo? Did Yahoo pay Brigham Young University for its logo? Because every time I see that huge blue Y on BYU’s helmet, I think Yahoo.com
Am I alone on this?
