Quote Of The Day – Insincere Apology Hall Of Fame Edition

My job is to find out as much information as possible about a player that I’m considering drafting. Sometimes that leads to asking in-depth questions. Having said that, I talked to Dez Bryant and told him I used poor judgment in one of the questions I asked him. I certainly meant no disrespect and apologized to him.

    Unbelievable that in today’s business climate a man could rise so high in management with such a lack of interpersonal skills.

    Just plain rude, almost as bad as slapping him in the face, or asking, “Is your Mom a Democrat?”

    That is a very strange question to ask someone. Their are only two remotely justification 1) The results of a background check. One could conceive someone using such knowledge to gain leverage or blackmail a player. 2) He want to provoke a reaction to verify they player was not a hot had, Without such context one has wonder how much of a lability the team wants keep this guy on board as a GM.

    I’m still trying to wrap my head around why it was a question that was asked at all.

    What business is it of his? Seriously…

    I’m not saying that if someone asked me that question in a job interview that only one person would have walked out of that room unassisted but I can assure you they would have needed medical attention.
