Meh, ESPN didn't pay all of that money to broadcast all of those bowl games without a few stipulations.  Now get your ass over here and do your interview, coach.

Sounds like it wasn't the coach who was the problem, it was Rose Bowl officials trying to cut the interview short, for some strange reason. These post-game interviews take maybe a minute at most, so the reporter was rightly upset by the interruption, and ESPN management will likely be having a very long talk with Rose Bowl officials later today.

They have angered a member of the Disney family, so they have angered The Mouse.

I wonder when these idiots are going to figure it out. They do not need to spend 6 figures on pretty people on the sidelines because no one gives a fark.

Someone somewhere thinks they're important because everyone has them now, but they're not. No one I have ever watched any kind of live sports with has ever said, "let's wait to hear what the sideline reporter has to say".

Word.

And Erin Andrews' voice is like a cheese grater on my central nervous system (I know this wasn't her, but it's on topic....sort of).

Me- "Great, thanks."

The best thing about the up-tempo offenses is that they leave less time for the announcers to say stupid things.

I wonder who hates field reporters more, the viewers or the coaches.  Because having some nosy-assed biatch (or a fat-ass like Goose) asking you if a player is going back in while you're relocating his femur must be sooooo important to them.

\remember when sideline reporters at least gave the impression that they were knowledgeable - like Armand Kitayen or Dr. Jerry Punch?

What? Your life isn't hanging in balance to hear how a coach feels after winning/losing a game?

You wonder why they didn't have an arrangement where they would bring up the podium, get the coach and the QB up on stage to hand them the trophy, and THEN have the sideline reporter ask her questions, once everyone is paying attention.

Nahh, his contract with Stanford would be nullified if that were true. Oh wait, you mean the interviewer...sorry. Of course she is, she is in broadcasting. She is only a step above radio DJ FFS, which means she is a functional degenerate alcoholic.

she was pissed.  who was the sideline reporter in the michigan/ south carolina game?  she was smokin'.

One of the networks tried that back in the '80's. It made a televised game virtually unwatchable.

The South Carolina/Michigan game was like that yesterday. It took 45 minutes to play the last 8 minutes of the game.

Which probably wasn't a good idea for the Rose Bowl officials. The Mouse gained some serious firepower with that latest acquisition...

It's not just sideline reporters. There are few things on TV less interesting than coaches or players talking about what they do. Whether it's some sidelines airhead asking "what do you need to do to win?" (answer: "score more points than the other team") or Gruden sitting down with a QB before MNF, nothing useful or interesting ever comes out.

ChrisDe: Isn't it about time to try a broadcast with no announcers again? Field mics only.


I suspect the result would be very weird. I remember a few years ago watching soccer on a Europe-wide cable channel in Germany. To save the costs of having commentary in many languages, they didn't have commentary in any language, just field and crowd noises. The result was bizarrely dispassionate, not at all (as one might hope) like being at the game. Even listening to commentary in a foreign language, where you might get nothing more than the names and some key words like "corner" or "foul", is better.

Conversely, one of the things I like about EPL soccer commentary on both FSC and ESPN is that the commentators aren't afraid to say nothing when there is nothing to be said; or simply to name the player in possession when there is nothing to add. They understand that not every second of airtime has to be filled with inanity.

Have on the field post game interviews ever yielded anything intriguing?

"You just won the Rose Bowl. How does it feel?"

"I'm gonna farking commit suicide."

Oh how edgy you are!!!

Of course none if it actually matters. None of anything actually matters emo kid, in 1000 years everything existing right now will at best be a long forgotten memory and you, me, and Fark won't even be that.

None of that changes the fact sideline reporters ask worthless questions, receive meaningless answers, and generally provide absolutely no enhancement to the temporary diversion and entertainment provided by a sports broadcast.

That's the point, we're not arguing about the intrinsic value of sports broadcasts and sideline reporters in relation to the worth of the universe. But you go with that nihilist thing, you're right nothing matters, and you believe in nothing. That must be exhausting.
 
2013-01-02 10:19:52 AM
I've never understood why the sideline reporters suck so much. Every team I ever played on in any sport always had at least one clown on it who was a great talker. 120+ Div I schools play football, not a single one of those teams can produce a sideline reporter that knows the game and can be a little funny or informative? If the reporters were hot and wore bikinis I would understand why they were there asking inane questions, but that hasn't been the case since Erin Andrews got creeped by that internet hero.
 
2013-01-02 10:21:24 AM
I honestly thought Brent did a decent job of covering up the short interview. I don't always like the guy but he is old school and knows how to cover when things go wrong.

Indeed, the inarticulate, emotionally stunted jock in class went on to have an actual athletic career. They didn't learn to express themselves along the way or anything. It's still at the level of, "Food good. Me hungry. Me go eat now."

The point. you missed it.

I watch sports and play video games. I am well aware of how unimportant nmy pastimes are as well.

Thing is, this lady goes and does her job and all Fark can come up with is:

Dogfacedgod: whore


poisonedpawn78: the bimbo

The job of the On Field Assistant to the Rose Bowl Trophy Presentation Ceremony Coordinator after the game is to get the winning coach to the the ceremony on time, DAMMIT HE HAS A HEADSET !!!!

Apparently you missed the part where the Coaches are actually taking part in the game and the sideline reporters are relatively extraneous window dressing. That's pretty farking stupid on your part.

The fact that we have so many bowl games means that they don't mean shiat anymore. There are what? 37-38 bowl games? Let's assume 37 games. That means that 74 teams are playing in a bowl game. Bowl games used to mean something, but now it seems that if you are a d1 team, you get a bowl game. The top 10 teams should get a bowl game and that's it. Bottom line is that the only one that matters is the the title game anyway and that all others are just money makers for the school.
 
2013-01-02 11:12:15 AM
Has an athlete or coach ever and I mean ever said anything interesting to a sideline reporter, or any reporter. If I never heard from any of them after or before a game I think I would survive.

It's just the latent misogyny coming out.

/for what it's worth I agree with you throughout the thread
//sideline reporter is basically where women are allowed to be employed within the business
///they often know more than the male "analysts" in the booth - they're there to provide injury info where they can and to provide an on-the-field perspective. Some people actually do want to know how the athletes feel
////without them, we never get KG's "ANYTHING IS POSSIBLLLLLEEEEEE!"
