I don't participate in any of those sites. I don't have time. Nor do I care about them. With that said, I pay attention because one of these days my daughter will be a tween...  Nothing is anonymous. We've made "being global" a reason for why privacy no longer is a right.

And, to @annelizhannan's point, we don't take the time to read or understand what is being said, written, etc., we just infer, which causes mistakes and arguments due to PERCEIVED insults.

I am so glad you addressed this. It definitely is happening. And it happens in the workplace among teams! It's so frustrating and I always left wondering, "why?". What does that person get out of it? I can tell myself it's because they are jealous, etc., but I'm still wondering "why?"! Oh, and @ginidietrich, I wear dark nail polish all year long. :-)

@MWPRINCight @bradmarley Don't disagree. I just pointed out some business facts that currently show how the NFL will get away with it. Yes, they have now appointed four females to advise them on this issue. Whoopee. That is the right PR thing to do. They may keep suspending people. But I don't think that this will stop the public from going to games and the NFL from continuing the practice of making money.

I agree that it is disgusting. As a communications professional, this crisis has been handled horribly. 


I watched Hannah Storm's piece from "Sportscenter" this morning.

http://deadspin.com/espns-hannah-storm-what-exactly-does-the-nfl-stand-fo-1634561209


Speaking as a girl who loves football and has a daughter, I understand the tough conversations she is having with her daughter. 


With that said, I read a piece in the WSJ that basically says the NFL is too big too fail. Too many people and corporations have invested in so much money that the NFL will continue to run television. I mean, CBS moved their Thursday comedy line-up to Monday so that NFL games could be shown on their affiliates. Verizon is paying $1 billion over the next four years for the NFL to be on their phones.Television cannot stay alive without the NFL because of Netflix, etc. Advertisers still want eyeballs and the NFL delivers eyeballs. The FCC is most likely going to revoke the blackout rule (blacking out home games if the stadiums are not sold out). More eyeballs. No sponsors have said they are reconsidering their relationship with the NFL.


I know people who are boycotting the league and saying goodbye to their favorite teams. Sadly, I don't hold my breath that this will be enough or that enough people will do it so as to actually hit the NFL where it hurts the most - $$$.  Some people hate what is happening but then look to the "good guys" (J.J. Watt, C.J. Spiller, etc.), to distract them from making a choice about how to spend their time during football season.


And to @bradmarley's point about ratings, Thursday Night Football's ratings were higher than anything CBS has shown on a Thursday in the last eight years.

I prefer magazines and books. However, there are some books that I read on my iPad - usually the easy, mindless summer reads. I can mark up books, flag a page, flip to my favorite parts, etc.

Because “spin” shouldn’t be part of any marketing effort. The best marketing simply tells a true story well.

I really like storied autobiographies – I’m always curious about how life shapes people – but Peter’s vignettes are especially compelling because who doesn’t sometime fantasize about chucking it all and drinking wine in a two-centuries old farmhouse? Or is that just me?
