I blogged about this earlier and I have received some mixed responses regarding how people feel about this topic. The Charger organization has decided, for one reason or another, that they do not want rookie Manti Te’o speaking with the media during offseason training activities.
As I stated this morning, I am fully behind this decision. Te’o doesn’t owe the media anything. The inverse to such thinking is that it would be best to get it out-of-the-way and have him thrown to the wolves right here and now.
It is my opinion that he has more important things to do like learn the playbook, form relationships with his teammates and coaches, and adapt to his new home in America’s finest city.
This is where you come in. How do you feel about the team’s decision to shield Te’o from the inundation of fake girlfriend questions? Do you agree or disagree with the kid glove treatment of the former Notre Dame star? Let us know by placing your vote in the poll below. I would also encourage you to leave a comment at the bottom to state why you voted the way that you did.
I am really looking forward to how this one plays out. I would guess it is very close to 50-50 when the final votes are placed.
Thanks a lot for reading and voting.
