Welcome to NFL Philosophy.
I did it. I lived it. I worked in the NFL, although only for a season. I am a former Operations Coordinator for an NFL team. I began as a training camp intern for one team and then interned for the team that eventually hired me. My job was to manage the day-to-day operations of the team. Essentially, my job was to take all of the non-football related duties and handle them so the coaches and personnel department could focus on the football related duties. It’s a lot of work.
In my short time in the NFL I learned a great deal. I paid attention, I stuck my nose in anywhere the football staff would let me, and I took in every bit of information I could. Working within the walls of an NFL organization was eye opening.
After being out of the league for a few months, I found that I needed an outlet for all of the football information that was in my head. I took to Twitter to help with that. I was very lucky to find so many people who shared my passion for the game. Because of the overwhelmingly positive response I received from friends and followers on Twitter, I decided that I needed to take the next step. 140 characters wasn’t enough space for some of the topics I wanted to discuss. I also needed a more permanent place for my work.
I’m not a reporter and I don’t intend to be. I won’t be breaking any news or giving away any information that will get me in trouble with the NFL or any of its teams. I would never want to betray the trust of those I’ve befriended within the league.
All of this is my opinion and does not reflect on any NFL team.
I’ve never done anything like this before. I’ve never been trained as a writer so please forgive my typos and awful grammar. I can only hope the content and knowledge can help you look past that.
Thanks for reading.
