Today, I just want to ask one thing…
Whose public relations team is handling the NFL collective bargaining agreement and potential lockout better – the owners or the players’ union?
I go back and forth.
Most recently, I was surprised that the players (in fact, Arizona Cardinals own Jay Feely) managed to “leak” the Panthers owner’s condescension of Peyton Manning and Drew Brees. But, during the Superbowl, I was impressed with the regular communication the NFL commissioner was giving to nationwide media.
And now, it seems both sides scored some positive public relations as they announced last night they would start seven straight days of talks and use a mediator.
What do you think? Who is “winning?”
Or, are we all just losing no matter the communications strategy until this whole mess is settled?
