Said how everyone in the media thinks he's a hot head and can't take any criticisms. Pretty funny, IMO, even if it was obviously agenda driven.
Used to respect Mr. Haggerty. Not anymore. His trashing of Tim Thomas (regardless of what one thinks per Tim's behavior & subsequent exit) is gratuitous & nakedly self-serving. He knows Tim's gone for good, why not cut him down to build yourself up?
In the sports media biz as presently constituted, the coin of the realm is face time, making yourself the story (CHB), and becoming a minor celeb. That's where the money is, and Haggerty, like so many in his profession, understands that one must make hay while the sun is high. Why are Felger, et. al. spread so thin & ubiquitious? 'Cause they gotta "crush it" while the crushin's good.
