He's using the media as a coaching tool. This stuff isn't for any of us, or even the media, it's all meant for his dressing room.
He acts all put out, but he loves every second.
It's a great point.
Today - everyone is talking about the Torts press conference, while no one is talking about his team's loss and how crap the first line was.
In other sports this sort of "pick on me, leave the boys alone" type of approach to the media would be heralded.
From Torts though - it just gets old, really, really fast. As fun as it is to listen too, as UnrefinedCrudge says, none of this is meant for the fans or the media. It's all meant for the room.
Leads me to wonder just how players in a room coached by Torts manage to stay tuned into the guy for so long. Have to admit - as a fan I get tired of his tirades every now and again and I'm not even a Rangers fan.
How must the players feel?
