Do you guys think babcock needs to show a little more class when being interviewed in-game by Pierre? I know its stupid and the questions are even more retarded but other coaches do it and dont make the comments that babcock does..

Absolutely not. I think that coaches should not even have to be interviewed before, during or after games. To top that, Pierre asks the DUMBEST questions ever and after losing their 6th straight game, do you really think Babs wanted to sit there and answer dumb questions by Pierre? I do not blame Babs at all and neither should you.

To be honest I was watching the game in bits & pieces, and missed the interview last night...In the past I recall Babs being quite congenial...Maybe he was not himself due to the team playing on 1 leg thus causing more stress for the coaching staff?

I totally agree but I still think he needs to suck it up and act professional about it, I mean other coaches deal w it.. I still luv babs.

Getting interviewed in the middle of the game is retarded and NBC should have never started doing it..

I could be wrong here, and please correct me if so, but I seem to recall coaches being interviewed throughout the game years ago (as in when ESPN/ABC/FOX were airing games)...I believe the NHL was one of the 1st to start doing this to promote the game, and to show how "down to earth" everyone is from the coaching staff down to the players.

Uhhh, what. Why are you bitching about an in-game interview about Babcock? If you want to ***** about post-game / in-game / pre-game interviews go ***** about Torts. Babcock is nowhere near Torts when it comes to interviews. All I remember from the interview was Pierre asking him how much he looked into the Rangers and Babcock simply said that he didn't look too much into them, and only watched their previous two games. What's wrong with that? I would rather have a coach show emotion then sit there and have a smile on during the rough times.

This is a professional business. Babcock's team is on a 6 game losing streak. Consider a million dollar business owner that is highly known to the public and business starts to go downhill. If he is interviewed about it, he probably won't be as professional as he would be if things were going good because its a business.

This is no different here. Babs has a right to be pissed off, between the losing streak and seemingly ever day he has to deal with a new injury to his team... its going to affect your mood. To top that, I like that he is showing emotion. I like that he is ticked off with the way his team is playing, and it showed from Pierre's dumb interview. IMO, as long as coaches don't go off on the interviewer, they should be able to answer questions however they want during or after a game.

I didn't see the interview. What was said?

It wasnt anything that bad, just kind of the tone in his voice. Babcock doesnt sugar coat anything, which is good. I like him as the head coach.

I want Mule to skate past Pee-air and punch him out. That would be awesome. As for Babs, say whatever you like, buddy. You're the man. :cool:

Oh ok. For a second it sounded like he was being a huge dick or something. I agree with you though, I like him as well.

Of ALLLLL the issues with the team right now, THIS is the one you take offense to?

I love Babs and I hope he keeps giving Pierre s*** for his insanely idiotic questions. I don't care how much the guy knows about hockey, Pierre is socially inept and those coach interviews are just awkward and uncomfortable so I'm glad Babs speaks his mind.

if i was Babcock and that irritating s*** McGuire was trying to even get on the bench, i'd send happy hudler after him with a wet towel and tell him to whip the back of his head until he's no longer on the bench. Babs don't need to show Pierre any love...he's an out of the closet Penguin lover!

You may already be aware of this and still don't like it, but the coach interviews are taped during commercial breaks and then replayed on that short delay when the game comes back on, so even though they are talking while the game is on they're actually only doing it during TV time-outs. I think it's a great extension of the viewing experience for fans at home and causes minimal interference.

Since there is no video representation for this, I offer:

Use whatever dialogue you see fit.

Note: Mr. Babcock is on the left.

god, who hasn't wanted to kick Pierre in the head at least once over the years?
