Eagles Change Their Public Relations MethodsBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, General News, News Monday, May 21st, 2012
The Eagles have made a number of clear changes in their public relations methods. They realize that being unpopular with local football fans (and the local media) isn’t a good idea, so they’ve made some major changes.
One of the biggest changes is that head coach Andy Reid, who had previously been reluctant about sharing information bout the team with the local media, has become very open and communicative with any members of the media who have questions.
I think this was a good move by the Eagles. Why start wars when you don’t need to? The Eagles want to have as many friends in the media as possible.
In my opinion, many of the questions that Reid are asked are harmless. Who cares if everybody knows more about the goings on of the football team? If the Eagles win a Super Bowl, everything will be fine. If they don’t, then they’ll continue to face a great deal of criticism. Reid wants to avoid being confrontational.
Reid has also taken a bigger role in the negotiations with the team’s players. He played a major role in the signing of running back LeSean McCoy. McCoy’s agent Drew Rosenhaus singled out Reid as one of the main reasons the deal was done.
“I think so,” Rosenhaus said after being asked about Reid’s role in the negotiations. “Certainly I can’t speak for him, but in the multitude of deals we’ve negotiated with the Eagles, which are in the dozens since he’s been the head coach, this is the most involved I’ve seen him.”
