I disagree. Patrick does it on purpose, he likes to ask the questions that he knows the player cannot answer directly, puts them on edge.
Whether you agree with his schtick or not, you have to admit its different than the usual pap we get from the well-trained NHL players. He actually got Quick to laugh out loud on the crew taking penalty shots on him...and I have never heard or seen Quick laugh.
Patrick came off like a dick in that. He complained about a free jersey not being good enough and asked a bunch of boring questions and tried to get Quick to say something that would make the rest of the media eat him alive. Just imagine if Quick said he was better than Hank and the LA market is trash. Even if it's true, you don't say that stuff in public. Best of all, Patrick acts like Quick owes him for being on the bandwagon. What a Dbag.
The problem with Rome is that he talks behind people's back. One day, he bashes someone and then the next day when he interviews them, it's a kissing ass parade.
That's kind of his schtick though, if you do/say something stupid he isn't afraid to just bury them whether they've been a guest or not. I always thought he asks some pretty great questions with some of his guests though too, so it's not just the typical ass kissing all the time.
