@belllindsay Experience creates perspective. Nothing can change that.
@Eleanor Pierce It was hard for them to hear. All three of them pushed back. And I would have pushed back in my 20s, too. But there is no match for the experience you pick up...you're right.
@Howie Goldfarb @hackmanj OMG
@hackmanj No, you never are ready. And even when you're in the middle of it, you're still not ready.
@Howie Goldfarb Someday every PR pro in the world will know this blog. It's our mission!
@Todd Lyden LOL! And you still call me Gert. But then, you'll always be FayBiz to me.
@ElissaFreeman I'm curious why so many young pros are reaching out for this kind of advice. When I graduated from college, I was just grateful for a paycheck and to be learning.

@corinamanea Well, it's still yet to be seen... but we'll see!
@JRHalloran That's so funny because I feel like everyone I know carefully planned it all. Maybe it didn't go like they expected, but they knew they were meant to be entrepreneurs.
@ClayMorgan It's funny. I always feel like people very carefully plan this kind of stuff out, which would be very characteristic of me. The fact that I was so ... lazy about it is so unlike me.
@Mike Klubok I love this example! I'd forgotten about him (and he's so easy to make fun of!). I'm going to use that example when I speak. Thank you!

I have a question: Why would you want the video in portrait mode without a call-to-action? Don't you always want the CTA?

@Danny Brown Nerd.
@bdorman264 Brad has an interesting point about people preferring to watch at home, particularly if you're into fantasy football and want to watch a bunch of games at once (have I mentioned I hate the Red Zone channel?). Maybe that, combined with all this nonsense, will stop driving people to the stadiums.

@stupcat11 A lot of people don't think so. Maybe I"m wrong (it's happened once or twice), but it certainly isn't going to be easy for them.
@VirginiaMann Or make me the commissioner. And then I can do away with the "breaking the plane" rule. I hate that rule.
@flt3 I watched an ESPN 30 on 30 that talked about how many professional players are broke by the time they're 30 years old. For the very reasons you describe: They are teenagers thrown into a life of grandeur and no one teaches them how to handle it.
@susancellura Eh. I don't believe in too big to fail. Look at the banks and oil companies of recent years. They'll just fall even harder.
@ExtremelyAvg Though this has nothing to do with communications, I am curious to see what happens in the next 10-15 years with football, in general. So many parents are afraid to let their kids play because of the damage it can do to one physically. Someday there might not be anyone to play the game, professionally.
@NancyCawleyJean A friend of mine posted something on Facebook about Adrian Peterson that I find really interesting. He said the problem everyone is having with that is many of us were spanked as kids (my dad used the belt on us). So we're essentially being asked to call our parents child abusers. And that just isn't the case. It's all very convoluted and strange. Where I have the problem is it's becoming more and more clear that Goodell knew about the Ray Rice video and chose to sweep it under the rug...lying by omission.
@flt3 @bradmarley I agree - I don't think he's long for his job. I'll apply for it!
@bradmarley It'll be interesting to see, that's for sure. I never thought, in a million years, an organization like Komen would undergo such a large crisis that it would undo them. I know it's not apples to apples, but it could happen.

@Howie Goldfarb Yeah...right. Smarty pants.
@Danny Brown I will read that. Thank you.
@Howie Goldfarb So it's not a unique situation and they're accustomed to sweeping things under the rug...and getting away with it.
@Danny Brown You're absolutely right. I hate that.
@RobBiesenbach Oh boy. I would feel the same about the days of September, but I have season tickets so I am spending them outside. Though it's harder and harder to go and support them.
@annelizhannan I just want them to offer me Goodell's job.
@Eleanor Pierce There also is a big group of people who believe men who are physical like this need an outlet...and if they don't have football, they'll take it out on people who don't deserve it. THAT is a bigger underlying issue that begins as early as junior high. It makes me insane.
@KristenDaukas Yeah, the breast cancer one is insane. Let's throw some pink stuff on the field and call it a day.
@MWPRINCight Part of the problem is one player was suspended for four games for smoking pot and Ray Rice (originally) was suspended for two games. no consistency at all!
@kevinmcelligott Sorry - wrong choice of words. I knew that.

@KateNolan You're right. This is exactly why he cannot be trusted to carry the groceries inside for me.
@annelizhannan She also didn't know a Ferris Bueller's Day Off quote so we think she might have other issues.
@belllindsay You probably can't get him up there in the great white north.
@sydcon_mktg SHUT. UP. Please tell me you have video of this somewhere!? Plllleeeease!?!?

@Eleanor Pierce I always do it for you, Ellie.
@Digital_DRK I've always wanted to go there, but we can't from the U.S. I'll have to fly up to you and then go down with you next time!
