That just doesn't scream masculinity and tough guy grit, does it?
So maybe that's why Marinelli's choice of pronouns to address the media in Detroit have some journalists a little upset.
"As three beat writers approached Marinelli, who was sitting in the stands, he told us to get lost in his own charming way.
"Goodbye, ladies,'' he said.
Lions beat writer Tom Kowalski goes on to say that the anti-Belichick had a habit of cleverly calling reporters' manhood into question.
"Marinelli was referring to all of us as ladies because, I assume, he believed we were soft and not worthy of questioning the men -- players and coaches -- who worked so hard and gave so much to their sport.
I called Marinelli on that a couple of times, just to let him know that we were fully aware of his inside jab. He'd laugh about it, but he never denied it.
I guess when you're failing miserably week in and week out you need something to keep your spirits up.
