Re: Lewis spars with reporter
I think there is a lack of professionalism on both ends there. The thing about it is Marvin is paid to answer questions and talk to the media whether he wants to or not. Dustin should have let it go when Marvin got upset though. Trying to keep the debate going did nothing. When your job is to interview someone on a regular basis, you can't let your pride get in the way because you need to maintain a professional relationship with that person. Your job is to ask questions and get answers, now Dustin may not be allowed to continue that because of this situation. Marvin is very surly when he talks to the media and that gets frustrating, but Mikey won't get rid of him. Also, Lance went on this rant on his blog about how Marvin doesn't get that he needs the media. Lance is a little off base there, if Marvin was winning, the fans could care less about a stupid spar with the media.
