Publicly, Dolphins coach Tony Sparano wouldn’t rule out the possibility of signing Brett Favre.
Privately, the team will.
Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports, citing an unnamed “highly placed team source” (Fergie?) reports that the Dolphins aren’t interested.
So why didn’t Sparano say so? Salguero says it’s part of the team’s habit of giving the media nothing.
Except, of course, when giving the media nothing creates an unexpected storm of something other than snow and then the team needs to leak its true intentions to the media anonymously.
Wouldn’t life be a lot easier if these ultra-secretive coaches trusted themselves to know the difference between the things they should say without giving up any strategic advantage, and the things they shouldn’t?
