Dan Le Batard of the Miami Herald created a mini firestorm last week with an anti-sports media column that overgeneralized, but also contained some uncomfortable truths about preparation and professionalism in Le Batard’s industry.
People especially didn’t seem to like Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban’s comment that the “dumbest guys in the room” are always the media guys.
On Sunday night, there was no debating who were the two dumbest people in the Denver Broncos post-game locker room.
Alex Marvez of FoxSports.com mentioned in his Tim Tebow column Monday that two media members asked Tebow for an autograph. Seriously. One was a Cincinnati reporter. One was a photographer.
Tebow obliged with his signature, and then the Broncos P.R. staff promptly booted the two media members from the premises.
