Bucs Now Players In PR Free Agency

March 16th, 2010

Since Team Glazer is turning to a former George W. Bush staffer, Joe suggests Team Glazer consider Dana Perino for the cheerleading squad. She sort of has a Rachel Watson look.

In any economy, an open media relations director job for any NFL team is going attract a strong pool of applicants from across the sports world.

These are prime jobs.

So Joe was quite surprised to learn that Team Glazer hired former George W. Bush administration mouthpiece Ari Fleischer and his new sports PR firm to help them find the Bucs’ new media boss. The longtime guy in that post, Jeff Kamis, quit in February.

What exactly are the Glazers looking for in a candidate? And why do they think they need help with a search?

And since when are they hot on the trail of free agents.

Joe is perplexed.

But Joe can’t blame the Glazers for wanting a super-qualified person to bolster their crumbling image in the community. And they probably want a better media coach for Raheem The Dream, as well.

Now Fleischer told Sports Business Daily that he’s only helping out the Glazers with recruiting and screening candidates. And that’s probably a good thing considering how Fleischer’s firm bombed in its representation of the BCS bowl system.

Call Joe negative, but Joe just can’t stop wondering why the Glazers, experienced NFL owners, feel they need help outside of the NFL to find a media director.

    When you continue to sell the snake oil, you need the best snake oil salespeople available.

    Ari Fleischer? Say what?

    Too bad they didn’t seek any assistance in hiring the Head Coach.

    Here’s a novel idea, hold a press conference and answer some questions and quit this hiding under a rock approach.

    Again… the difference between politics and the NFL is in politics you can lie with no verification one way or the other, but with the NFL, the record stands on its own… it does… anything reinforcing the poor record is an excuse. Kind of like the poor excuse Steve White used about the Bucs 3 or 4 close games. Was it really Jim Bates fault???

    What Ari should suggest is that the GLAZERS LISTEN to the FANS and GET A REAL COACH.

    Ari should have been hired years ago to help Gruden’s image… not this NON Head Coach who can’t speak English. No one is going to listen to the Bucs appointed PR guy… come on… that’s like taking Answer Man serious on buccaneers.com !!!
