Man, is Phaneuf ever taking it on the chin today...even TSN guys are giving it to him...
You can do whatever you want in any city but NEVER piss off the reporters in the media. Death nail to many a pro athlete across all sports. The media will be there long after any player in any sport. By not talking to the media after the game, he burned them and reporting it is their only recourse.
To the chagrin of some of the media members in attendance at day one of Oilers Training Camp, there would be no processed sugar adrenaline rush today.
The normal media breakfast at sporting events consists of coffee and doughnuts but Dallas Eakins, a fitness buff and nutrition driven individual, replaced those sugary treats with fruit, vegetables and Greek yogurt.
“I told you at the very first one, enjoy those doughnuts because you won’t see them again,” said Eakins.
It would seem that the players aren’t the only ones who will be on a strict diet under their new bench boss.
