The Buffalo Bills Have Demanded That The Media Only Report The Positive Aspects Of Training Camp
Wait, you can do this? You can just tell the people whose job it is to criticize that they legally can no longer criticize you? Oh course the Buffalo media is up in arms. Their profession - which is now basically just reporting all the things that the Bills (of all teams) are doing well - just became exponentially harder. I am not saying it's right that the Buffalo Bills are essentially practicing in the Fort Knox of negativity, but it is pretty clever on their part. Successfully running a football team is hard enough without answering to people who are constantly trying to find each and every new way in which you are doing it wrong. If I was Rex Ryan I would make myself untouchable until the season started too. Hell, everyone should try to minimize the amount of scrutiny they are allowed to face at the workplace. Even these journalists - who I would imagine are frantically bitching to any open ear within a ten mile radius - would love to tell their editor to shut the fuck up and publish. Unfortunately, unlike the job of a football coach, the job of a media personality is largely dependent on someone whose responsibility is to make sure their efforts are fit for broadcasting. Again, I don't agree with it because Rex Ryan gets paid a shit ton of money to deal with second guessing. However, if it's second guessing that he's not contractually obligated to hear until September then I don't see why he wouldn't do all he can to silence the outside forces that make his job more infinitely more tedious.
