Episode 326 of “Play Like A Jet” is here! Subscribe on iTunes or check out the audio below. Scott Mason talks to Jon Grella – a former Communications Director for the Tampa Bay Bucs, Executive Vice President of Public Affairs at the U.S. Travel Association, and current head of the hottest new PR firm in DC, JAG Public Affairs (not to mention former NY Jets ballboy!) – about how the Jets should be handling the firestorm surrounding the rumored turmoil between its General Manager Mike Maccagnan and Head Coach Adam Gase!
Jon shares his thoughts on how the story probably got started, who may have been responsible for the leaks and how to try o contain them in the future, how the optics look to outside observers, how a PR staff would work to limit the damage done to the team’s rep, what the team’s best option is going forward as far as stopping this situation from becoming even more of a firestorm in the press, and what Jon did when he was faced with a similar situation during his time in Tampa!
Plus there may even be some talk of flaming tailgate tables and future pizza reviews!
