Andy Reid Opted Out of a Farewell Press Conference

We’re still in that get irrationally angry about things that don’t matter anymore stage of the breakup.
The Eagles are, apparently, leaking nuggets (they should get that looked at…) to their favorite beat reporter, the Inquirer’s Jeff McLane. He reports that the team had a press conference scheduled for Reid on Monday, but between the time of being fired and 11 a.m., according to McLane, Reid opted out.
Reid hates the local media, lets be real clear about that, so it’s no surprise that he didn't want to face one last round of questions before leaving town. But at some point he'll talk. My guess? He gives an exclusive to either A) McLane, who is probably the most pro-state scriptual of worth, or, more likely, B) an ESPN personality– Sal Pal, Jaws, or similar. Reid has nothing to gain by pleasing Philly folks anymore, so him declining to speak isn't shocking. But I was a bit surprised that there wasn't a farewell press conference, of sorts. That’s not standard protocol… but neither is giving the guy you just fired a game ball.
