New Schiano Order Extends To Media

May 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.

    Curious if Schiano has ever been to China. Also curious if he will clamp down on his own players on social media. There’s really bad tweets coming out of most of them anyway.

  2. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    What exactly is a “bad” tweet?

  3. Matthew Says:

    Geez Morgan over exaggerate much?! Schiano said nothing of content or censorship just rules about live updates which he is within his/Bucs orginizations rights to do. Let’s keep some perspective & realize we are talking about a “game” not a dictator led society. I could care less what 21 & 24 year old dudes tweet in their free time & niether should you!

    The NFL worked just fine before social media and it can work fine now without it. Give me that “old school” football any day! More focus and less distractions will get this team back on track faster. GO BUCS!!

    All I want is for this guy to win us some game…can care less about anything else he does or doesn’t let people do…

    “they say too much wrong info was getting out.”

    I’d rather have a coach who doesn’t give a rat’s a** about a reporter’s Twitter feed. This sounds more like a coach whining than a coach covering “details”.

  7. Tom Says:

    Oh for cris’sake. Here it comes. The media “hung” Raheem for being too open and they’ll bitch about Schiano for being too closed. Who gives a crap? Really? I just want to see the season unfold. I don’t care whether JP Peterson gets his tighty whities in a bunch because he gets “locked out” for tweeting updates from mini-camp.

    I really liked having the openness of Raheem’s admin. But the way the local press destroyed the guy and made light of his demeanor in a way that was obviously going to catch fire with the hard core know nothings on the message boards was shameless. The media is never happy.

    “they say too much wrong information was gettingnout.”

    Agreed. Last year, the media present company included was putting out misinformation that we had a NFL team in Tampa preparing like a NFL team to be competitive in a NFL season.

    Boy was that misinformation.

    Why was the media reporting on the practice field dance offs, locker room card games, blown off meetings and practices etc. Glazer influence?

  9. eric Says:

    Careful greg the media in this town will destroy you if you hurt their itty bitty feelings.

    Some have the mistaken impression that they are big time and know something about the game.

  10. Brad Says:

    Hopefully he can teach the media how to report news cause the majority really suck at it. I hope Schiano strips radio shows too or least only allows the true leaders of the team to have them.

  11. Stevek Says:

    Good stuff, focus on football and have Coach let s know what in the heck is going on via words from his own mouth.

    Thomas,

    LOL, we were misinformed, indeed.

  12. Macabee Says:

    The example that comes to mind when a tough disciplinarian, details guy with strict rules is Tom Coughlin.

    A success story, but not without difficulty. Those admirable traits, some believe led to his firing with a young Jacksonville expansion team – a team that was similar to the young Bucs of today.

    And it was rough going early on at the Giants. Several times being on the hotseat with the media calling for his head.

    What changes opinions and garners acceptance of that management style is winning and winning alone. And that is what Tom has done. Let’s hope that Schiano meets with the same success, but if he doesn’t win the media will be relentless and the fans will quickly become critics.

    I will reserve my praise and my criticism for the field!

  13. Miguel Grande Says:

    I am amused by the antics of our new fearless leader. He feels he must extend his control beyond the field of play to the locker room, meetings, parking lot, press rooms, grandstands, twitter, and so on.

    He must feel very insecure about his giant leap to the NFL. He realizes that NFL does stand for “Not for long”, and that he applies to all equally, even him. That will cause him to lash out at players, reporters and coaches.

    I despised Dungy for his attitude and public relations that always told us what a superior human being he was, covering up the fact that he was a very average head coach and was eventually fired. While he devoted his life to football, he and his supporters pushed him to be the “All Pro Dad.” Any comment that I add to that, I’m sure would be censored.

    Since I sarcastically originated the “New Schiano Order”, let’s go one step farther, after reading a dozen articles about him, my new name for the head coach is “The Little General.” I think it fits him well whether he’s successful or not.

  14. Rrsrq Says:

    NFL will make sure players and coaches are available to media, how Schiano runs his practices is his business. I am definitely on board with NO RADIO SHOWS except a weekly guest, I don’t want to hear anymore about what the players say they are doing, I want to see it on the field.

  15. Bishop Says:

    You guys are such boobs. So a reporter writes down what he wants to Tweet and spits it out right after he leaves practice. Big deal a 1-hour delay at best??? What am I missing

  16. Bobby Says:

    @Miguel Grande….hey, nice job. You qualify for ‘idiot of the morning’ so far.
    Last I checked Dungee was a Super Bowl winning coach which hardly qualifies as average. You need to check out the meaning of the word average and use it properly, as in “you are a below ‘average’ poster’.

  17. Miguel Grande Says:

    The Colts won the Super Bowl in spite of Dungy, he wasn’t allowed to tamper with the offense. Peyton Manning won that Super Bowl, Dungy was along for the ride.

    The Ravens won a Super Bowl in spite of Trent Dilfer, which to call him average would be stretching the limits of speech. Trent was probably the worst QB in NFL history.

    I don’t ever say that I am a good or great poster, I am probably way below average, but it is my chance to practice the English language. Sometimes I am way too pessimistic and smug. I also look forward to people’s responses to my comments, egocentric.

    It reminds me of that joke. What do you call someone who speaks two languages, bi-lingual. Three languages, tri-lingual. Four or more, multi-lingual. Well then, what do you call someone who speaks only one language, American, Bobby.

  18. Joe Says:

    Morgan:

    Also curious if he will clamp down on his own players on social media.

    Joe believes he is trying, but so too did Raheem. It’s one (minor) reason Geno Hayes is no longer here.

    Diehard:

    The NFL worked just fine before social media and it can work fine now without it. Give me that “old school” football any day! More focus and less distractions will get this team back on track faster.

    Gee, how in the world do the Steelers win all of those games? Those guys are Twittering maniacs. Besides, NFL doesn’t allow players to Twitter before, during and immediately after games.

    Tom:

    Who gives a crap? Really?

    The fans. When Joe would Twitter live from practice, the feedback he got was extraordinary. Massive more feedback than any other time, not even close. No joke.

    Twittering live from practices sort of opens the windows for fans to watch from their computer, guys like Joe are their eyes.

    Joe knows a lot of people don’t like social media, for whatever reason. It ain’t going away folks.

    Tom:

    I’d rather have a coach who doesn’t give a rat’s a** about a reporter’s Twitter feed. This sounds more like a coach whining than a coach covering “details”.

    Of course, is this did take place, you’d be the first one to b!tch at reporters for not pumping out enough content. (sigh).

    Brad:

    Hopefully he can teach the media how to report news cause the majority really suck at it.

    LOL, oh, trust Joe, you WOULD NOT want that.

    I hope Schiano strips radio shows too or least only allows the true leaders of the team to have them.

    Players shows are incredibly boring.

    Silence:

    What exactly is a “bad” tweet?

    Just judging from the Bucs point of view, a reserve defensive lineman always Twittering (usually at 2 a.m.) about how he can’t get laid and how he hates women because they won’t put out for him and how he has no interest in relationships, he just wants sex.

    Guess one could applaud his candor.

    Also, how a Bucs player is actually Twittering, defending college players who get busted for pot.

    For the record, Joe’s not bent about this rule. It’s only a 30-minute delay for OTA/mini-camps. Both today’s practice and tomorrow’s is closed to media so this time, it was a one-day thing.

    Training camp is wide open, or so Joe was told.

    Trying to respond to fans’ Twitter questions and shoot photos is really a struggle. So in that respect, Joe is OK with this.

  19. BamBamBuc Says:

    Now if only Schiano can prevent Thomas from blogging about GMC and Raheem, we’d be all set….

  20. Bobby Says:

    @Miguel……stupid is the same in every language and to say Dungee didn’t have anything to do with the Super Bowl victory is like saying Gruden built the Buc super bowl team from the ground up. It’s just an ignorant comment Miguel. You know….ignorante, unwissend, onwetend, 無知.

    =======================================

    Just wow. I have a twitter account and I mainly use it just to add all our buc players because I thought it would be cool to see how they interact as a person off the field. I’ve never seen any of them say anything like that but damn… Clearly we have some real unintelligent people on our team if they are tweeting out garbage like that.

  22. Joe Says:

    Silence:

    One reason, albeit a minor reason, the Bucs got rid of Stylez White was his Twittering. He would Twitter the stupidest s(p)it. One was so bad, Dominik told him to stop Twittering and Stylez said “no.”

    Little over a year later, he’s out of football.
