do you think mara reads BBI?

japanhead : 11/10/2019 11:57 pm
i am not sure what else millionaire/billionaire owners do all day. it seems like he basically listened to francesca following the botched benching of eli by firing mcadoo and starting eli the rest of the year, so we know he listens to traditional media, and is reactive. i wonder if he reads this site at all. we know hanlon, papa, ranan and various other beats have been active here.
I'm actually John Mara

What's on your mind?
Yes.  
giantsFC : 11/11/2019 12:27 am : link
He is lurking right now.
i wouldn't be surprised if he lurks.  
japanhead : 11/11/2019 12:35 am : link
and if so, he's probably considering hiring terps to run the whole operation
John Mara? No.

Someone from the Giants PR or social media teams? Probably.

Any entertainment organization (which is what the NY Football Giants organization is) has to be aware of what fans are saying on the web. Even if it's interns, someone's got to be reading and making notes. They don't have infinite manpower, they can't be listening to every show on WFAN and ESPN-NY, but the organization has to be aware of what fans and media are saying/writing.
how much manpower would it take

for mara to jump on the web and read a few bbi threads or game reviews? it would take him like an hour or two a week, if that. i'm not sure what a billionaire sports owner's schedule is like but it's not like he's got a regular 8 to 5 job type thing going on.
No, I donít think so, but he will read ...

Snail mail send to him and reply to you in writing, if your note is respectful and professional. But, alas, he wonít follow our advice and brilliant suggestions !

To get advice on what to do with the team since all of us are football geniuses
Maybe not him personally  
Rong5611 : 11/11/2019 5:28 am : link
Have to think his people take a look at this site and similar ones.

Gives them a pulse of fan sentiment. I would if I were them.

Les in TO : 11/11/2019 5:33 am : link
Probably doesnít even own a computer or phone.
Everyone at the Giants is aware of BBI.  
truebluelarry : 11/11/2019 6:07 am : link
Many - if not most - lurke here occasionally. A few have probably posted as some point in time.
Seriously???  
Darth Paul : 11/11/2019 6:45 am : link
Us geniuses can't decide if it was all Eli's fault. If Jones had a good or bad game. If Barkley is the greatest back in the league running behind the worst offensive line ever, or if he is hurt, hesitant and should be gaining 200yds from scrimmage? Is Jabrill Peppers good or bad? Did our offensive line open holes or didn't they? Who's fault is it that every running play is a shotgun inside handoff? Does Barkley always dance around trying to break or avoid tackles or is it just after his injury, and he was a North/South runner before?

Why would anyone read this board to figure out what is going on?

All we need now is a image of Mara browsing BBI holding a black cat, dresses regular, no jewlz, getting help on all his football decisions.

Pat maybe occasionally but not him.  
Blue21 : 11/11/2019 6:48 am : link
. I'd be surprised if he doesn't have a finger on the pulse of the fans.
I was sitting..  
rmc3981 : 11/11/2019 7:18 am : link
directly behind him and his wife on a Phoenix to Newark American Airlines flight about 18 months ago, as he was returning from an owners meeting in Phoenix. His daughter and a security guard were seated across from them. When the plane landed, security went with his wife and daughter but Mara went to baggage claim and waited to pick up two suitcases. Nobody noticed who he was. It struck me a bit odd that someone worth a half a billion dollars would pick up his own suitcases and walk out of the airport without any security, but he did. Sounds funny, but I admired him a bit more that day.
Having said that...  
rmc3981 : 11/11/2019 7:19 am : link
I wouldn't be surprised if he does read this site on occasion.

If the Giants have a semi-modern business they employ a media monitoring agency to gauge customer sentiment and reactions.

Presumably that data is available to ownership.

Again, that's if the Giants have a semi-modern business.
If Mara reads BBI

His head would explode.

Imagine you are the owner of the Giants. You spend millions of dollars every year on athletes, coaches, trainers, facilities, stadium expenses, etc....you go to the games with hopes your team will simply compete and show promise that they are heading in the right direction only to find that they might be the worst team in football. Iíd be pissed.

And the only thing I can assume that Mars has contributed to this mess is the whole Eli Manning situation. He didnít want to cut Eli like Well cut Simms. So he is deciding to pay $23,000,000.00 to Eli to sit the bench and help groom Jones. That money could have been used for OL, FS or pass rushers. Not to mention all the dead money we have.

Mara should have a a long talk with Gettleman and determine what the plan is going forward. I want to know today what steps he plans on taking to fix this team. So far I am not impressed.

I doubt it.

But he & people in his circle are probably aware of it @ a minimum.
It never ceases to amaze me how few people understand

the business of the NFL. Eli is not being paid 23 million this year. His cap hit is 23 million.
a few years back  
fkap : 11/11/2019 10:00 am : link
Eric got in hot water with the Giants for making unkind comments (was it the uncharitable take on then owner Wellington?), so they definitely keep tabs.

But, the initial OP was flawed. JM is heavily involved in running the business. That may include being hands on for the football aspect, but it definitely includes the business aspect. Of course, a lot of BBIers goof off here during working hours, so just having a job doesn't preclude JM from coming here.

Tisch is the one who sits back and collects the money for nothing. He has a career elsewhere, though, so he probably isn't sitting around with nothing better to do.

I can tell you is that every time I run into someone from the organization, they tell me they read the site. Even the guys who handle security.
We know Bryan Kehl does

Mr. Mara, Mr. Tisch

If you are reading this, please know how honored I would be to restore this organization back to prominence. ONLY I CAN FIX THIS.



^Hey, it worked for one guy constantly in the news...

Ha I don't think that would make BBI too happy.

the funniest thing that ever happened is that Lance Scott was supposedly pissed at a former poster's "Lance Scott Newsletter."

think it was hilarious when Kent Graham got this worried look on his face after his sister supposedly arranged a hook up with a wall of BBI supporters in Albany.

I forgot about that. Ha...

Weirdest thing was Keith Hamilton's brother offering to literally sell me inside info on the Giants.
The Bryan Kehl stuff was fun.  
Mike from SI : 11/11/2019 10:17 am : link
And made me like him a lot more.
