MEDIA TRAINING: In Houston, Richard Justice wrote "every interview with an NFL player sounds like every other interview, and the NFL likes it that way" because players are "taught to fear or distrust the media, either directly or indirectly." During the labor dispute, NFL players "could use the media to explain their position.” But many “rank-and-file NFL players have had so little experience dealing with the media they don't have the relationships with reporters to contact them and explain their position.” Justice added, "If NFL teams expended as much time and energy on improving the football product as they do keeping players away from the media, things might be better” (CHRON.com, 3/16).
