Kind of like the excuses these same fans are making for hit and runs, brass knuckle threats, an NFL quarterback sleeping with drunk randoms on spring break, felony weapons possession charges, multiple DUIs, and fake bomb threats.
This is coming from someone who has been highly critical of the non-prescribed adderall uses by Irvin and others, as well as Sherman's poor sportsmanship in post-game.
When you put fanaticism over ethics, you risk losing your moral compass.
Comparing coach-reporter interactions with potentially criminal acts is a bit extreme, don't you think?
The problem with Kawakami and the Cohns is they try to make a news story out of nothing, and often become the story themselves. Thats a problem for reporters. There is a reason Matt Maiocco and Matt Barrows are widely respected as 49ers reporters. They will ask the tough questions too, but they don't set it up to create a controversy.
Many of these reporter types are working for a dying industry, newspapers. I am sure they are pressured to come up with articles to sell papers. It must be difficult. But that is no excuse in my opinion. Its not about losing my "moral compass" but rather expecting some professionalism on the reporter as well.
On a side note, where did you get the "drunk randoms on spring break" part? Are you assuming that in the Kap situation in Miami?
