What are these professional sports executives really doing?
These days I really wonder what professional sports executives really do. Make no mistake, I would love to work for a professional sports team. I’m just wondering what the majority of these sports leaders are actually doing.
I look at the professional sports dynasties and say they always do the right thing. That’s why they’re still strong, competitive and winning championships. For example, the New England Patriots, Tampa Bay Lightning and some great old teams did the right thing most of the time.
Now free agency in professional sport has really ruined consistent gains with all teams. But gamers are looking for the most money and that makes sense. But coming back to professional sports executives, what is their work ethic on a daily basis? I mean, if a team sees a ball player on another team that fits your pattern, try to recruit that player. If you don’t ask for the order, you will never get it.
The Detroit Tigers are on an upward trend and need to continue to be proactive and aggressive to improve. The question is, is Al Avila that guy? The combination from my perspective for a professional sports team to improve is scouting, recruiting talent and just being ruthless!
The Detroit Lions are a prime example of all-rounder. They hired two guys from the New England Patriots organization who were terribly unsuccessful. Why? They probably thought because they were with the Patriots, which is a great organization, that their history would be enough and it was rubbing off on them in Detroit. It does not work like that.
I feel like a lot of these people have big egos, big salaries and just go through the motions without being responsible for their bad moves. Hope I am wrong, but why are most of these professional sports teams just awful and smelly? You have to appreciate the great job you have and pay dividends for your employer. If you are a professional sports executive and you are reading this and you disagree, look in the mirror and say what is your track record? Has your team gained anything lately?
