I’m glad to hear that Kevin Glenn gets it because many, I dare say most, of the coaches in players in professional sports don’t get it.
Glenn understands that the TSN panel and others around the league are going to talk about his job security. It’s part of the business.
I hope he passes it along to others in the locker room because most don’t understand being in the sports entertainment business allows fans, broadcasters and writers to talk about players and coaches. If we weren’t talking about such story lines, the interest level would drop and so to would attendance, ratings and, in the end, revenue.
Yes, it’s not great to open up Twitter or turn on the radio or TV and have your job being discussed. I understand that but, in the end, it’s part of the gig. You might as well embrace it. And maybe the more the characters of the sport get it, like Kevin Glenn does, we’d be having more fun. In the end, it’s just a game.
