This morning, I was listening to KNBR, when they started talking about an interview with Matt Maiocco and Isaac Bruce. The transcript can be read here:
The best part of the show, I thought, was listening to Paul McCaffrey, who I've now decided is a ravingly awful talkshow host, and how he was outraged - OUTRAGED!!! - that Isaac Bruce didn't say more. Personally, I thought it was a fairly funny interview. He didn't say much of anything. Pauly Mac was so angry, he decided he MUST remove his mention of Isaac Bruce from the JTO theme he did. After his burst of rage, they went to commercial and came back to talk to Scot McCloughan. When asked about the interview, McCloughan talked about what a great team leader Isaac is, and how he'll pull aside younger guys if he sees something they need to fix, and he's just a team player.
So what this all leads to is this... Does anyone really care if Bruce didn't give a good interview? What's more important, 153 yards in a game, or the ability to talk to the press. As a Giants fan, I've become very desensitized to athletes who don't care to talk to the press. I just don't care anymore, especially since most reporters tend to ask stupid questions. I don't think Maiocco asked bad questions, and I'm surprised Bruce wouldn't talk more about his charitable organization, but even that doesn't really bother me.
What about you all? Are you upset that Bruce is tight-lipped so far? Does it make you not like the guy more? Or are you more interested in how the guy plays every Sunday?
