FALCONS DIDN'T HAVE FACE-TO-FACE WITH DIMITROFF


Recommended Posts

http://www.profootballtalk.com/rumormill.htm

League source tells us that the Falcons hired Tom Dimitroff to be the team's General Manager without the benefit of a face-to-face interview.

Seriously.

Dimitroff will hire the head coach, control the roster, and oversee a nine-figure annual salary cap. And he didn't have an interview. At least not where everyone was in the same room.

It's amazing. After hauling a nine-person committee all over the country to interview candidates for head coach and G.M., the guy who got the most important job in the business has never met the owner

Wow, can't say that I'm surprised with this bunch of bumbling fools. Guess that's how it rolls in ATL, top draft picks get chosen without being seen in person, the GM light gets picked without a face to face discussion. That's going to go well, have fun.

Heck, A video conference is like their standing in the room, only thing you miss if they have bad hygeine or smell bad. :P

This isn't how you conduct business, throughout the entire process the Falcon "brass" has looked foolish. You can turn your head and shoot the messanger but important decisions can't be made in this manner, it shows the type of FO you have.

Wow you're so cool - let's all go support your team!!:hehe:

I am in business myself and teleconferences are OFTEN used in these situations. The year is 2008, not 1968. We have technology now that has changed how we do things.

Exactly, don't be surprised to to see this kind of interviewing start to happen more in the NFL. This way you can interview more people in a shorter amount of time. Plus, its better for the enviroment, everyone wins.:D

You're a bucs fan why are you worried about how The Falcons handle business?
Because watching the Falcons nosedive always makes us feel good about our team.

Consider your trials and tribulations as spreading joy around the league.

Yes I do.

$30-40M in cap room (top quarter of the league)

Young OLine, who played very well this year

Division Champions

You are confusing me with a Panthers fan. They don't have much to feel good about, more than you right now but that's not saying much.

We will see my friend we will see. Saints probably said the same thing after last year and their season was better then The Bucs season this year. But who knows what will happen this division is unpredictable.

I work for the General Electric conglomerate as an IT specialist and we setup video interviews and conferences all the time for the GE executives. I dont know where you get your info from, but that is part of the business now.

so if they hired parcells (or someone you prcer better) by video interview instead of in person you'd be ok with that?

To me it makes no difference if it was live video on a 10 ft plasma or in person

If itwas onthe phone only then that would bother me but not live video

dude, you are embarrassing us by posting your apparent total lack of technological advances....

ever heard of Net Meetings, whiteboards, webcams?

These are very big in business these days, actually during this century so far, get current.

Just wondering, are you actually a Falcon fan or just playing on a borrowed computer?

YOU don't do business that way but a LARGE % of the civilized world does.
