For help on how to follow a comic title,
“Screwgie”? I assume that’s a tribute to a sports comic strip I remember enjoying in the paper just as much as this one … “Scroogie”. Ah, 1976, to be a teenager again….
When I was a kid, we had a basset hound that could absolutely run for miles. She took off after a bear one time and Dad didn’t catch up to her until a few hours later.
Press conferences are part of the contract … if you refuse to do them, then don’t sign the contract and don’t participate. In all sports, publicity is a huge part of raising the money which is handed out as prizes or salaries, and press conferences contribute to that. This very comic strip exists because of the ‘buzz’ surrounding sports. It’s always amazing to me how celebrities feel entitled to large compensation while feeling free to stomp on contractual obligations - they get away with this because the governing bodies have no backbone. If you treat them like the rest of humanity — i.e. tossing them out on the street for failure to do their jobs — then things might differ.
