All This Negativity Sucks!

The title of this piece is taken from a quote by Rick Pitino when he was head coach of the Boston Celtics when the team was facing tough times and was being hammered in the press.

Our good friend Bruce Allen of Boston Sports Media Watch has a piece today over at Patriots Daily which is a must read about the media coverage this season of the near perfect Patriots.

He hits it on the head in his assertion that no matter the circumstances, the media of today look to create stories on issues that may, or often may not, affect the action on the field.  It’s a sad commentary about the existence of the “gotcha” journalism that we see today.
