It Appears The Media Wasn't Too Nice To Brandon Browner After Yesterday's Game So He Tried To Murder Them
Usually I err on the side of the players when it comes to altercations with the media. Yes, they have a job to do as well, and that job may or may not include asking a difficult question or two. Far too often, however, they come off as pretentious assholes that are parroting the same crap over and over. So yeah, I could see how a player could justify getting upset with them from time to time. In this case that justification couldn't fall on deafer ears. When it comes to Brandon Browner I side with the media, and I don't even have a damn clue what they said.
In fact, if the opposition is Brandon Browner there isn't a single party I wouldn't root for. That's how bad he's been for the Saints this year. I legitimately think that no question is too inappropriate to be asked of him. A beat reporter could have inquired on the price and availability of his mother and he should have sat there with a smile on his face and answered to the best of his abilities. There is no inquiry too offensive for a player whose on-field performance has been just that. I can't even think of a single appropriate question for Browner. "Why do you stink so goddamn bad this year?". "What exactly does it feel like to get beat by a drum?". "Do you feel shameful that you are essentially robbing millions upon millions of dollars from your employer?". Every last one of those questions would be sure to elicit a similar response from Browner, yet they are all pretty encompassing of his play this year. The truth isn't always pretty, and from the first snap of the season Browner's play has been unsightly. Little did he know that by throwing a fit and having to be restrained by teammates he gave the best response of them all. The best way to show you are wrong is by having no other reaction to turn to besides anger and violence.
Brandon Browner doesn't get to make "one play doesn't make a game" cliches. Nope, sorry dude. Not when you are responsible for damn near a game's worth of first downs due to penalty over the course of the first half of the year. Not when you are far and away the most penalized player in the league. Not when the only time a flag isn't sitting at your feet is when the offensive player is too far past you to clutch and grab him. One play doesn't make a game, but it hasn't been one play. Teams have targeted Browner early and often and I can only imagine the success rate is in the 90's. He has single handedly lost this team games, and I don't even think you could argue differently. He should be mad, just not at the people that are questioning his play. He should be mad at himself for not coming even reasonably close to the expectations that were set for him. It's the media's job to get the answers that the fan's desire, and as of right now every member of the Who Dat Nation is asking "what the fuck did the Saints see in Brandon Browner?".
