I guess my question is, why is he a jerk for not playing by stupid rules? Are you not allowed to disagree with rules? Is every rule a good rule? Does the reporter have any responsibility in this interaction? If I ask a stupid question to someone who is heated up, maybe I’m the jerk! Maybe, just maybe, I should have known better.
I will confess, I think John was a little hot headed and could have controlled himself for 30 seconds, but I also don’t think the reporter is free of blame. Yet the reporter seems to be getting touted as the victim here.

Even coaches are human. He’s a jerk because he had a bad day and a stupid reporter tried to fuel the fire? I know alot of people hate John, because he played against THEIR team and caused some heartache. I have no interest in football, therefore I know nothing of the guy. So there is no bias here. That coach has every right to answer the way he did. He’s having a crappy day, you ask him a question about a fight he was just in and you expect him to play pansy pants and suck up to the reporter? Sports reporting is almost like political reporting. Apparently there are rules that you have to stick to the script no matter how mundane, stupid and unproductive it is. If you don’t give the League or the Political Party the answer you are supposed to give, they punish you. It’s good to see that there may be Trump in football. Just call them out on their stupid and mundane reporting. Throw political correctness out the window, let’s live in reality.

You have to admit, most sports reporters ask stupid and rhetorical questions. (ie, what is your game plan today? Uh, to win? How do you plan to win today? Uh, by scoring more points than the other team?). Maybe the reporter should have taken a clue and realized that he was talking to a coach that was just in an argument with another coach and had to be separated by the officials. He may not be in the best mood to talk right now. DUH!!!
Reporters have to realize that the only reason athletes and coaches put up with their questions is because they are forced to by the League. The League will suspend or fine them if they do not answer questions by the press or if they are out of line with the press.
Football is not all that interesting a thing to report on at all. There's nothing to really ask or to say during the 10 second interview with a coach heading to the half-time locker room. The only thing of any real journalistic interest would be a straight answer to the first question, which Harbaugh understandably did not want to give an answer to.
The other fluff they always ask is just a game they play to get paid. Everyone who knows football knows both the questions and the answers before they are asked, yet the fans still eagerly pay a lot of money every week to hear it. Harbaugh didn't play the game by the rules here, thus is a jerk.
And that's a big part of their jobs. If they can't keep their emotions in check for a 30-second interview, they SHOULD be fined. This guy has ALWAYS been a dooosh.
Amen rx4nv, the same sports reporters could be interchanged with the White House press corps and the questions would still be just as stupid.

Georgeharrisong: You really are a one trick pony aren’t you. Your only come back to anyone that talks about Mormons is the Cut and Paste response about Joseph Smith being a liar and never able to give any defense to your claims. I suggest you try thinking and researching for yourself.
August 30, 2015 at 1:29am
Georgeharrisong: You really should know what you’re talking about before you start calling a prophet a liar. You obviously know nothing about Joseph Smith nor the LDS religion. However, it does appear that you are very good at using the cut and paste tool on the Anti-Mormon websites. Before cutting and pasting, you really should validate the truth of what you are about to paste.
August 30, 2015 at 1:23am
georgeharrisong: As far as I know, God is my judge, not you. You may be very surprised to see Joseph Smith standing with God and Jesus Christ as you present at the gate to try and enter Heaven. I hope all goes well for you.
rx: The only thing that matters to the Libs even before the bodies of the victims turn cold, is more "Gun Control." That's always their answer. More and more laws of restriction but they can't name ONE LAW that would have stopped this guy. NADA! Of course never forget that when the Libs talk about "Gun Control" they're talking about "Control" of your guns and not theirs.

The real problem is this is a circus on both sides. No one is willing to think reasonably. The clerk would like to keep her job, but also stand up for her moral beliefs and not have them taken away in order to comply with the gay couples legal right. The gay couple would like to stand up for their legal right, but at the expense of this lady’s moral/religious beliefs. There is a word that seems to have been dropped form the dictionary, “compromise”. How hard would it be to find someone else in the courthouse that would be willing to issue the licenses that this lady does not? The lady can keep her job and comply with her religious beliefs and the gay couple can get their license per the law.
Usually, there are simple solutions to these problems, but the country is becoming so divided (each group thinking that they are the only ones that can come up with a solution) that no one wants to play with each other. Instead of playing on the school playground with each other (putting political and religious beliefs aside), we have become the jets and the sharks and would rather draw a line in the sand and dare anyone to cross it.
sorry, but we will not compromise here-would you have asked blacks to compromise with a racist who refused them a license to marry a white? That too is against some people's religious beliefs. We simply canto allow religious nonsense to invade law-doesn't work since religion is made u and varies person to person

Think about it, The terrorists know that if they do something someone in a tank, fighter jet or carrying a machine gun will be hunting them down. Mass American Shooters don’t have to worry about that. Heck, they can’t even be hunted down by a squirt gun or pop tart.

No, alot of LDS people have seen Harry Potter. I just don’t know what that has to do this conversation.
August 27, 2015 at 11:30am
Looks like you had some fat fingers or happy hands and misspelled GOD.

Tornado311: In your opinion I am blind. You are entitled to your opinion. However, I know that your opinion about my beliefs and the truth are irrelevant. God’s opinion is what matters to me. I pray for you man. I have studied the LDS History, but I live in the present. God communicates with me today. I do not have to read other peoples 3rd and 4th hand accounts of a persons life to understand the truths of God’s Gospel. I get to speak to God myself. God loves us and has not left us alone. I pray that you may soon get to know him too.
August 27, 2015 at 11:23am
Tornado311: All I can say (and I know you won’t listen, but this is for the sake of those reading this that might still have some of the Light of Christ in them), you are so wrong!!! It is almost laughable (yet sad) how you claim to know so much about the LDS religion and that you know everything about it’s members thoughts and beliefs, yet you get so much wrong. You speak as if you are the world’s leading expert, not only on the LDS religion, but on mind reading too. Look, I’m sure you are a nice guy and you would probably make a good neighbor. I don’t want you to think that I dislike you in any way, because I do not know you personally. I only know you by what you write here. I can only speak to your beliefs on the LDS religion that I have read. I can only say that you have been gravely mislead in your research of the LDS religion. You have been fed a bunch of half truths and full out lies. How do I know this? I have been in this religion for 40+ years. Therefore, I have been studying this religion for 40+ years. I have been living this religion for 40+ years. I have been acquainted with members of this religion for 40+ years. I have lived were the LDS religion is a majority and I have lived were the LDS religion is a minority over these 40+ years. All I can say is that your sources are soooooooo wrong it is truly sad to know that someone could be so mislead. To claim you know more about a religion than someone who lives it. Good luck man. God be with you!

I hate to repeat again, but “Now there is a baseless claim”. Especially from someone that keeps wanting me to provide citations and written proof to back up my comments. I would love to see you cite a reference for the claims you just made against Joseph Smith. One that says he loved anything with boobs and a heartbeat.
August 26, 2015 at 7:16pm
Just as expected, more comments from people writing what they heard from somebody that knew Joseph Smith. These are reported 3rd and 4th person accounts. You would have my head if I tried to prove that Mary saw Jesus fly out of the tomb on a unicorn, by quoting Mary’s 3rd cousin that heard it from Mary’s BFF that heard Mary mention it in her sleep while they had a slumber party.
August 26, 2015 at 7:10pm
Tornado311: You keep asking me to prove things. Why don’t you prove something for once. Why don’t you prove to me that your interpretation of Brigham Young’s comment is in fact a correct interpretation? Otherwise, you are just asking me to prove something that you have erroneously claimed as fact to begin with.
August 26, 2015 at 7:05pm
Tornado311: Oh my gosh, I never knew that Joseph Smith wrote that he…. Oh, wait, Joseph Smith didn’t write that. It was written by someone else. But of course it has to be true if someone else told us what Joseph Smith said. Especially since it is an account of what this man says he heard another man say that Joseph Smith said. That’s why we rely so heavily on 3rd and 4th person accounts in a court of law. Dang. I thought we were on to something there.
August 26, 2015 at 6:58pm
Tornado311: That really doesn’t surprise me. I’ll try to explain. You wrote that Jesus was a dead man that is supposed to help fix people. I then disagreed with your characterization of Jesus. I hope I explained it simply enough.
I also see that you are confused about what religion is and what it does for people. That one, to your credit, is a little more difficult to explain. I won’t do that in this post though.
August 26, 2015 at 5:54pm
Tornado311: True based on your belief that what you are reading is true. I call it false and Anti- based on my belief that it is false and Anti-. It’s great that we get to debate these topics, but truly, it’s God that will ultimately tell us whose belief was right and whose was wrong. You don’t get that privilege. Fortunately, I can see you understand this. As you stated “You can find a lot of truth in a book called “Mormonism – Shadow or Reality” “. You were right to claim you might find “a lot of truth” and therefore by definition, you will also find “a lot of false”, since it is not “all true”. That is how the Devil works, he uses half truths or truths mixed with lies, so that it is easier to believe in false things. In God’s world, you can’t even have 99% truth mixed with 1% false. If you believe in a 99%/1% mix, you have chosen to believe the Devil.
