Neil Best leaves no stone unturned in the world of sports media.


Gregg Popovich is fan unfriendly

Please don’t tell my colleagues I revealed this, but here is a little sportswriter trade secret: Much of the time we do not personally care in the least why coaches and managers do what they do. We ask because it’s our job, and because we are seeking answers for our readers, listeners and viewers.

So when guys such as Gregg Popovich and John Tortorella refuse to answer legitimate questions – which some fans and media members seem to consider cool – remember that they are not dissing journalists. They are dissing you.
