    PR attempt to counter all the bad PR of recent. The players showed up. That's the positive to be reported about the players. The initiative is corporate.

    Don't you know that we have just started working with the community? Jason taylor never won the Walter Payton award. Fields isn't looked upon highly for his helpings aroung the community and the dolphins as an orginization have never, ever once gave back to the community.....that is unitl now....

    They always partake in community service. How can there possibly be anything negative to say about this?

    This is pretty smart getting them all involved in a project like this. Some of the rookies won't be around for long but this gives them all a taste of giving back to the community and working as a team.
    I'm always interested to see which players are regularly involved in the community projects. Fields, Vernon, Tannehill, Odrick and Carroll were regular participants.

    I must say it is a bit contrived, but I think it is an attempt to get in front of a problem. JJ looks like a leader, not an animal like Pouncey and (I forgot his ****ing name thank god). I am a naive moron who thinks perhaps we can set a tone and hopefully make this bigger than the alternative. its worth a try, rather than letting ******* veterans set the tone for "professionalism"

    the Bullygate thing is a blessing for the NFL. if a GM drafts a coward and signs a bully and insists on converting the coward into "something"(rather than get a real LT) based on his draft status then we need to say "you lost, you drafted the wrong guy and this isn't Nazi Germany". JJ is a human being, if he doesn't repond to coaching then shame on the GM, get a ****ing short term RT in her and move on.

    How is what I said a negative?

    The rookies didn't magically get together and decide to do something for the community. They were organized by the teams PR department. That doesn't make it bad. My point is it is a enterprise strategy. These things don't just happen organically.

    OK dude. Thumbs me down for being captain obvious but this isn't a gesture of goodwill that organically appeared among rookies.

    Like you said it is a something we've done for years. If you think we aren't going to do a lot of this and not ensure it is publicized you are being naive. Job one is create the news not let it happen to you.

    For one I'd be bummed if the corporate culture wasn't pushing this type of thing. If they didnt it would show incompetence in the face of the PR nightmare the team has experienced over the last year.

    Well I guess you enjoy reading pap about the phins. As you suggest they are fulfilling and contract requirement (the article calls it an occupational requirement - that softens it a bit but doesn't escape the reality of it. Do this because you are obligated). How is that newsworthy then? No more newsworthy than fulfilling your blocking assignment.

    They came out to help as Americans meeting their contractual requirement. These guys didn't volunteer to go in harms way for Christ's sake.

    P.S. Thank you I am a genius.
