There are a myriad of issues that a sports executive at a college athletic program or professional team faces every day. Most of the time, these issues are in the background, never known about by the public. Perhaps they are operational or staffing issues; maybe, they involve budgets, marketing or fundraising.
But some issues are so important or are so inherent with controversy, or involve potential criminal activity, that they become a matter of public concern and interest. That's when the media becomes a player, often calling on experienced sports executives for comment.
In The Bay Blog, Rick will provide his thoughts and analysis of some of the key issues in the sports landscape. They are Rick's opinions alone and should not be attributed to any organization or company with which Rick is affiliated.
