Why is local media obsessed with Fleck running on the sidelines

I don’t get why some of these guys hate him and the program because he runs in the sidelines.

I don’t get why Minnesotans cheer against Minnesota teams.

What am I missing?

It is astounding that so much of the media just can't handle his positivity or energy. Ironically, a consistent pessimist not just to the Gophers, but all local sports teams, Dan Barreiro sums it up best...his take is that he finds PJ's energy to be a bit too much, but that he is not the one that PJ needs to sell the team on, its the kids he recruits, and to a lesser extent, a young fan base that needs to be brought in.

PJ is just too youthful, energetic and happy for this media to handle.

Minnesotans HATE positivity. Feeling negativity about good situations is the Official State Emotion. The State border sign should say "Welcome to Minnesota...hey, dial her back, buddy. We hate winning too much."

Well, at least half of the a-hole media were hoping the gophers would lose.

And many of them are out of shape and have never been able to run, even as kids they couldn't.

LOL! Minnesotans believe in self flatulations. Why do you keep banging your head against the wall? The correct answer is it feels good everytime you stop.

So is thread about why the media hates him running or his positivity? This thread transitioned to a straw man real quick. No one hates him because he is positive. And, more of this “the media wants him to lose” crap. More nonsense.

A better question: For a group that (for some reason) really wants everyone to like the coach they do - why do they constantly look for slights that aren’t there?

You think Barreiro wants them to win.

You think the idiot on Kfan at noon wants them to win?

You think Fatrick wants them to win?

I just laugh!

At least half of their sponsored radio station is cheering for them to lose.

I don’t think they want them to lose. I stand by my question.

I’m talking about this from the man who should retire.

“ I’d go to Gophs game tonight, if it wasn’t so cold. And traffic wasn’t so terrible. And parking wasn’t so ridiculous. And Yanks-Astros weren’t on. And the short, head-shaved att’n seeker didn’t run from one end to other between periods.
Five darn good reasons to stay home.”

Meatsauce has mentioned it on air multiple times.

I don’t get why people care if he runs on between quarters. He can’t be the only coach who does that, or is he?

... I'm scared to think of what a non-self flatulation might look (sound? smell?) like...



flagellation is the word I hope you were looking for

OK. I knew what you were referring to. I was referring to the notion that the media ‘wants’ us to lose. That is far different than finding something PJ says or does annoying, etc.

Re: the local sports media...

Someone on Gopher Hole (can't remember who it was) a few years back made a very astute observation regarding our local sports media: most of them don't know the names of more than 3 or four players on the Gopher roster. Most of them couldn't tell you, if asked, who the Gophers are playing next week.

When it comes to Gopher football, there's really no point in worrying about what the local sports media thinks — especially most of the radio people. They are entertainers. They have a job to do: performing their schtick. Their schtick doesn't really involve the Gopher football program.
