"News Article": Dave Lozo's Experience Covering John Tortorella

http://davelozo.tumblr.com/post/5183...ohn-tortorella

I didn't want to use the actual "news article" tag, because calling this news, or an article for that matter, would be a disgrace to those two words.

You all know I was a big hater of Torts, but for some reason I actually found myself siding with Tortorella after reading this.

To me, Lozo just sounds like a child festering a wound. I bet Tortorella has no second thoughts about the NY Media, yet guys like Lozo (and probably Pat Leonard, Brooks) will hold a grudge forever.

This just continues to fuel my hate for the current guys on the Rangers beat.

What's the old saying? Those who can, do; those who can't, write?

My favorite part:

Quote:
A big part of Tortorella’s problem was he always believed he was the smartest guy in the room during a press conference, when really he was never in the top 10.
It's no wonder Lozo isn't affiliated with a major publication.

Lozo is an idiot. Don't even give his Tumblr (LMAO. ) page-views.

I'm not a fan of the media. I can not stand Brooks. The rest of the Rangers beat (Zip, Gross, Leonard, etc) are fine by me though. The NY media were not responsible for Torts acting like a jerk all the time. He acted that way to media before he came to NY. He acted that way to Sam Rosen who is one of the nicest guys around. Renney did not act like a jerk. Whether you like Torts or do not like him it is pretty that he is who he is.

Those are three of the most prominent defenses of Tortorella, all of which come across as laughable.
Is there anything better than interviews with the neighbors of a mass murderer? A man or woman looking into the news camera and talking about how great that neighbor was. Oh man, he was so quiet and kept to himself, but he kept his yard really clean and never bothered anyone. He was a pretty great neighbor, all things considered.

The people he murdered, however, probably have a different opinion about the man.
The irony...

There's a reason that's on tumblr and not on any kind of respected media outlet.. lozo needs to get over himself he really sounds like a ******** little kid...

I don't disagree torts was definetely the hardest coach to cover for the media but if they would have just taken a ****ing hint and not asked him questions they know he shoots down and doesn't answer night after night there would be no problem and nothing to ***** about
