    Re: DOUG LOGAN'S BLOG

    Logan's blog now rotating between USATF brass.

    http://www.usatf.org/about/leadership/theofficialword/

    First up: Hightower. In what can only be described as ill-advised, she leads off with several broadsides at the USOC. Unrelated, I'm sure, to USOC head Scott Blackmun's statement last week, “We’d be likely to ask some questions if a (USATF) board member becomes CEO.”

    If I were her, I wouldn't be poking that bear.

    It was actually that comment (by Jill Geer) that made me realize how the names were related to the blog postings.

    The letter I thought was written by Jill Geer was written by "Richard". Jill wrote the letter above "Richard's". See "Doug's Blog" for those response letters.

    Yup.

    Try and deny.

    Brian is right. .. andn if you screw up or don't close the deal, nobody, civilian or competitive corporate, is the wiser.

    Yes, I read those letters. I'd like to know more details.

    The beating he's taking on his site is kinda brutal. Note, by the way, that there are apparently no elemental security precautions, since his own director of communications is listed as savaging him.

    And nothing would turn off potential business types than reading in the media that someone was "boasting" (how it would probably come across) that they were being courted.

    Maybe the tennis was a cover and he went to Scores for an early Oktoberfest. [You haven't lived until you've seen a dancer with saurkraut pastie tassles!]

    Can't the man just blog about things not track & field related (sang to the tune of "Can't We All Just Get Along?")?

    Or maybe he took a few days off and was enjoying the tennis. Attempting to connect this to his job performance is ludicrous . . .

    He also might be meeting with media types which are mostly in the vicinity of NYC or LA. For, example, ESPN was televising the Open and also televises some USATF competitions. Plus, it is the guy's hometown and his son lives there.

    I'd be interesting in knowing if he was considered a VIP or did he have to buy his own cheap seat? That'll tell all you need to know about T&F's standing with sponsors.

    I agree. The people who fund these things care less about the actual sport than they do the publicity for backing it.

    The place to look for new sponsors is in new places.
