Ben McAdoo calls anonymous quotes 'fake news'

The drama that has surrounded the Giants all week has been the result of “fake news,” coach Ben McAdoo claimed Friday while stating the players who spoke publicly to trash those speaking anonymously did a “great job,” Fred Kerber of the New York Post reports.

“They’re excited to go play. Excited to go get back on the field. When you have a setback like we did last week and some fake news I guess you could call it like we had this week, some drama, I think it’s good to go out and play the game you love to play,” McAdoo said as his Giants (1-7) prepare to face the gosh-awful 49ers (0-9) on Sunday in San Francisco.

McAdoo, whose Giants were obliterated 51-17 at home Sunday by the Rams, said he labeled the reports “fake news” because it all came from “anonymous quotes.”

Pressed if “anonymous” meant “fake,” McAdoo said, “No, I’m saying it’s anonymous. No names behind it. … I’ll let you define it for me then. It’s anonymous.”

The furor started through an ESPN report where two unidentified players blasted McAdoo, claiming the second-year coach had “lost the team” and that he was doling out fines and changing practice and work schedules. This came in the wake of the destruction by the Rams where the team effort, had it been miserable, still would have been better than the wretched endeavor the Giants provided.

Awful loss, then anonymous rips — or fake news rips — according to the coach.
