LANCE ZIERLEIN 180 DEGREES ON "MEDIA" PETTINESS?
Written By: LM
Wednesday, Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey tweeted the following
Thursday morning, a caller "Whopperhead" asked Lance Zierlein and Adam Clanton (790 Morning Show) about their takes on Morey's tweet.
Lance quickly replied he didn't see anything wrong with it and he was not going to make a big deal about it. I agree with that take. Whopperhead alerted Lance that a few media outlets were trying to make a big deal out of Morey's tweet. Lance replied by going on a many rant about the "media" making a big deal out of petty stories.
Are you kidding me? Lance actually went at media for making a big deal over petty stories. I have come to believe, most of these guys in radio forget most of the stuff they have said on the air. Last August near the end of Houston Texans Training Camp, Lance Zierlein was the main host who got the Arian Foster propaganda war going. Days before Arian Foster infamous "I'm just trying to be the best player I can be" interview it was Lance burying Arian Foster for not signing autographs. Arian's autographs on the Proper Gentlemen of Sports was huge.
"Petty" is subjective but I would think Arian Foster's autograph is pretty damn petty and Lance went at him hard.
As far as Daryl Morey's tweet, it's a huge non story but Lance is inconsistent.
Daryl Morey is a local media darling and damn near a God at Sports Talk 790 but can we have a little consistency in the way critique Professional Figures?
In the end, I guess I'm just a Simple Man
