The Bipolar Media

from Steve Buffery of the Toronto Sun,

“I’ve already seen how every- body gets euphoric when you win a game and how every- body wants to blow up the world when you lose a game, and I don’t understand that kind of hysteria. And a lot of it comes, believe it or not, from the media—in the sense of a bipolar approach to reporting, instead of a nice and even approach to everything,” Wilson said, after being asked how his club could beat the Wings 3-2 at Joe Louis Arena, and then lose 6-1 to Montreal at the ACC.

Wilson, like pretty well every other professional coach in North America, insisted that he does not read newspapers, but gets a sense of the media “hysteria” by the questions asked—and it’s something he doesn’t love, nor does he want his players to get caught up in it.

more and you can watch Wilson talk about the media at TSN video (thanks to a KK member for the pointer).
