Joe, did we miss out?
Joe Crisp, did we miss out on the mini-camp last week? Was the media not allowed, or did your real job require your attention? I was just over on the Joe Crisp Camp reports, and the last was from 5/2!

If you were there did you actually see Ade Jimoh Fan Club (Actually Ade himself!), and was he as he says part of the Starting Unit?

camp scrubs aren't allowed access to the camp reports, LOL

just kidding, JC didn't go this time because of the restricted media access, it just wasn't worth it.

I have excellent insider knowledge that Ade was, in fact, on the Starting Unit.

Unfortuntately, he couldn't specify which Starting Unit (i.e. practice squad, Redskinettes, concession stand, etc...)

I'll keep you posted!!

Word up!
Word up! On the concession stand, selling Cookies! You posted about Ade in the wrong thread! Kind of like Ade himself missing a tackle, or an assignment or 3!

They probably don't want him reporting on any of Gibbs' "asian american" plays.

SKINSnCANES 06-10-2004 01:13 PM

hah, see the problem with what Parcells said was that it as about somethign that was bad for Americans. If had of called it the Iraqi bomb, instead of the Doug Flutie Hail Mary no one would have realy cared.

Gibbs trick play for the year, he puts Jimoh in the game against the number receiver, which makes their QB target him. The QB goes to throw to him but Taylor picks it off because hes spying the whole time knowing where the ball is going.

I don't mean to speak for Joe, but I spoke to him personally, and he really, really, really wanted to go. But, along with all the great things that Joe Gibbs' return will bring, there is also the negative. He just aint too keen on the media, and the general public, for that matter, causing all sorts of distractions during team activities. I agree with that decision, but it certainly doesn't help us info greeding fans through the football summer drought.

Joe said that his 90 plus minute trip each way would have resulted in about 15 minutes of time with the players. Not much of a payoff.

Then again, people were flying in to Washington from all over the country and standing in line for 6 hours just to pay a few moments' respect to a dead president.


Bunglehead 06-11-2004 12:20 AM

Okay, in my last post, when I refered to "Joe", I meant Joe Crisp. When I referred to "Joe Gibbs", I meant, of course, Joe Gibbs.

This is simply an oversight, and also a feeble attempt to raise my number of posts.

Mattyk, I don't care if I get a thousand posts, don't you dare take that blue cap off my helmet! I'm not worthy!

Big C 06-11-2004 12:25 AM

no you're not, jk

Bunglehead 06-11-2004 01:39 AM

Hey, Big C, a fellow Hokie! Thanks for the reinforcement of my own self-loathing!

By the way, have you gotten any underage female townies drunk with Markus Vick lately? If so, did you get lucky?

Wearin' that blue cap proud though, aren't ya!

Sorry it took me so long to reply to you, backrow, but Matty and Bunglehead (my older brother) pretty much explained it for me.

During the second minicamp, in early May, Coach Gibbs started expressing concern over the number of reporters in attendance, and said he was really uncomfortable with the idea that one of us might report something that we shouldn't be reporting, in terms of the technical aspects of what the team is working on for the upcoming season. He also didn't like the fact that players seemed to be spending too much time looking over to the sidelines to see who was among the media throng. He felt like the media was a distraction, and presented too much of a threat to leak sensitive information about his strategy.

At the last practice of that second minicamp, Gibbs closed the practice after the first 30 minutes or so, and the reporters were herded up and escorted back to the media room, where we couldn't see what was happening on the field. We were allowed back downstairs to interview the players and coaches after practice, but it's tough to get a whole lot of questions in when players are hurrying back into the locker room. So we were basically left with whatever we could get from the post-practice press conferences.

Knowing the situation would be the same-- if not worse-- going into this third minicamp, combined with the long drive from Richmond, the bad weather and cicadas, I just felt like it wouldn't be worth it. I think everyone gets a lot more out of what I'm able to report from the actual practices, rather than what few soundbites I can get from the players and coaches after practice. You guys want to know how particular players are performing in practice, how the positional competitions are shaping up, and how the atmosphere and chemistry of the team have changed in the offseason. Reporters really need to be able to watch the whole practice-- particularly the full-squad scrimmages-- to be able to accurately report on those aspects of the team. Unfortunately, that also creates the risk that a reporter will divulge too much of what is happening on the practice field, and that's a risk that Gibbs just doesn't want to take.
