Rivers knows what he let go in loss to Miami – San Diego Union-Tribune
“That’s just part of it,” he said, literally and figuratively shrugging off the mitigating circumstances. “I just didn’t play good. … I don’t know any other way to describe it. There wasn’t one of those I was trying to do too much today. It was just I got fooled twice and threw a bad ball.”

Why McCoy survives — or, perhaps, not – San Diego Union-Tribune
McCoy comes off a team player who seems comfortable collaborating with Telesco and the Spanoses.

To a far greater degree than his predecessor Turner, a veteran NFL coach who had worked as a head coach for two other franchises, he has injected pro-Spanos commentary into his on-the-record comments to media.

As he stayed on the job, he streamlined his remarks to media, but odes to the Spanos were still commonplace.

Conor McGregor Rules The UFC, For Better And Worse – Kotaku
Over the weekend, Conor McGregor became the first UFC fighter to ever simultaneously hold belts in two different weight classes. He is, without a doubt, a legend-in-the-making, a star we should appreciate while he’s still around. But he’s also hotheaded and petulant, and I worry that both the UFC and other fighters are learning the wrong lessons from him.
