Adam Schein Unimpressed By Glazer StatementJune 13th, 2010
Yesterday, when the Bucs new media relations honcho, a former GOP operative, issued a statement trying to shoot down the inference from a dubious BBC report that Team Glazer is so choked with debt it cannot run the Bucs, Adam Schein was not moved.
The co-host of “The Blitz” with Rich Gannon heard exclusively of Sirius NFL Radio, and no fan of the Bucs, Schein scoffed at the statement Monday and seemed to put more credence into the BBC report that Team Glazer is so underwater, fish are swimming over their heads.
Schein read the statement in its entirely then had this to say:
“If this is the case [that Team Glazer is flush with cash], why is Reggie Brown the big ticket item in the offseason? If this is the case, why are you relying on neophytes at the wide receiver position?
“T’is the season for optimism. Where is the optimism in Tampa Bay? Where is the talent? Where is the spending? I look at Tampa, where is the hope? Seriously. Where is the optimism? How can you create any scenario where they do not finish last in the division? They will throw a parade in Tampa if they go 6-10.
“I have to give them credit on the draft, but there is no chance for Tampa Bay this season.”
Joe cannot really argue with anything Schein said. That written, color Joe skeptical of that report. As Joe pointed out yesterday, Andy Green, described in the BBC article as a “disgruntled Manchester United supporter,” was the one who uncovered the damning financial information. He is a noted rival of Team Glazer and is trying to help facilitate a purchase of the kickball team from Team Glazer.
Can anyone say “conflict of interest?”
