Saints News, 7/29/15: Saints Make Quiet Entrance at the Greenbrier for Training Camp

New, comments

From Katherine Terrell at NOLA.com: If the New Orleans Saints' arrival at the Greenbrier Resort for training camp on Tuesday proved anything, it's just how much can change in a year. Aside from a few banners leftover from last year in the towns of White Sulphur Springs and Lewisburg, W. Va, there was little indication that an NFL team was about to set up shop for the next month. Aside from a few scattered fans at the airport and at the entrance to the resort, the Saints who touched down just as it started to rain, arrived with little fanfare. Gone was the brass band that played at the airport last year. No special treatment after a 7-9 season. The Saints are ready to get to work.

Why didn’t Goodell increase Brady’s suspension? | ProFootballTalk
As noted last night, the NFL has gotten plenty of things wrong in the #DeflateGate saga. But it has mastered the art and science of public relations.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has issued a statement denying any wrongdoing in Deflategate, and decrying NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's decision to suspend him for the first four games of the season.

Brady offered to help NFL gather missing text messages | ProFootballTalk
If nothing else, the NFL can (when it wants to) master the art of public relations. Sure, the league screwed the pooch in the Ray Rice debacle last year, failing to realize that a video existed or that it would inevitably be leaked.
