I don't think anybody here "gets off" watching Holland squirm. I do think some people want management held accountable for bad decisions and underperforming expectations. Media can play a role in doing that (for good or ill).
I don't think anybody here truly believes that media doesn't have a bigger part to play in all this. Nobody would be satisfied if each day Holland just stood in front of a camera, said what he wanted, took no questions, and then went about his business.
I think the whole point of this media discussion, is that some fans (myself included) believe that's essentially what's happening because the Detroit sports media does not fulfill the "check and balance" role that media (by its independent nature) can provide.
I couldn't disagree more with that first sentence...
By the sounds of it your advocating for a media atmosphere more like Toronto. I live in that media sphere and let me tell you it is one huge distraction for that team.
