Jim Leonhard voiced his opinion on twitter about how the media will ask a question and depending on how the player answers he thinks that they are damned if they do or don’t on what they say. Jim said this during media day at the super bowl.
He states that the media will make something controversial when it isn’t. Well yeah, Jim. It’s called selling papers, getting eyes on their content online, and causing people to talk about THEIR story.
Media Day on January 31st for Super Bowl 46
I love media trying to make a story out of players saying they “expect to win”. Seriously. That’s why everyone plays, to win, esp a Ring.

Which is better answer:”we’re going to play hard and see what happens” or “If we play our best and they play theirs, we think we will win.”?

Fans hate when athletes use cliches, but the media makes it controversial if they don’t. It forces most players to not show personality.
