(AUDIO) Dave Birkett from the Detroit Free Press Defends His Headline that Schiano Hung Up on Reporters

Dave Birkett 11-20

Dave Birkett from the Detroit Free Press wrote that Greg Schiano hung up on the Detroit media during his conference call after being asked about MRSA. Booger and Rich heard the audio and weren’t convinced that Schiano was trying to get rid of them.

Birkett says he doesn’t think it’s a huge deal, but Schiano did hang up as a reporter was asking another question when he said bye. Birkett said the Buccaneers PR guy did warn them that there were two more questions and more were asked, but most conference calls end with a simple goodbye and coaches generally answer all questions that reporters ask. Birkett says it may just be a difference of opinion.

Birkett says it’s likely that Schiano was trying to get to a national radio interview and he abruptly ended the conversation. Birkett said a “couple” questions doesn’t necessarily mean just two more questions.
