New Schiano Order Extends To MediaMay 5th, 2012
Just as Bucs players have learned that success and survival under the New Schiano World Order is about attention to details, it seems the Bucs media is getting a taste of that, as well.
Joe and other media types learned yesterday that Twittering any kind of play by play while viewing Bucs rookie camp is a crime against the new regime. Same goes for similar activity via Facebook and other social media, and presumably the edict extends to anything that violates the spirit of the order.
(There’s no truth to the rumor that Schiano insists media only use No. 2 pencils for notetaking. “Details! Details!!”)
FOX-13 TV sportscaster Chip Carter offered a theory on the Twitter order, via his Twitter account.
@chip_carter – Bucs have shut down media from tweeting during practice. No updates on Twitter or Facebook — they say too much wrong info was getting out.
Now Joe can’t speak to the exact reasoning behind the Bucs’ decision to put the clamps on live practice social media updates, and Joe surely can’t say that the order comes from Schiano.
Regardless, Joe doesn’t think it’s a big deal. It’s not as if the media is being censored in any way.
