For the record, during the media Q&A session, Ferentz opened things up for questions after giving his opening statement. At a minimum, 20 seconds went by before any media member raised their hands to call for the microphone to ask a question. It might have been longer. It was long enough for the moderator to restate his request for questions…and long enough where it felt a bit awkward. Point being, there was plenty of time, and an unfettered opportunity, for either Dodd or Forde to raise their hand, call for the mic, and ask the man a question related to Rhabdo, something neither did in January when they were attacking Ferentz’s character from hundreds, if not thousands of miles away. Predictably, that didn’t happen. I have a notion to just sit at Ferentz’s interview table tomorrow morning for the duration, just to see if Dodd or Forde shows up.
