Haley and Vermeil Both Show Emotion, But...



Just something I was thinking about:  we've been debating Haley's coaching style a lot this week and I was reading posts written in response to the Mike Lombardi piece about Haley.  People are defending or condemning Haley showing so much emotion openly and it made me think of Dick Vermeil.  Vermeil also wore his emotions on his sleeve, but in pretty much the opposite way as Haley:  Vermeil cried.  He cried a lot.  And perhaps there was criticism of it that I don't remember.  But, I don't remember Vermeil being under this kind of a microscope for his emotional outbursts.  

I think this is an interesting idea to discuss.  Are Haley's emotional outbursts really that different than Vermeil's?  Was Vermeil "unmanly" for being so weepy?  Did players lose respect for Vermeil?  Is there a double standard when it comes to Haley?  

I don't know the answers to those questions.  Any thoughts on the subject?
