PR CAMPAIGNS

John Carr ($1m) - "Find Your Own Road"
A commercial campaign showing Carr at the helm of Atlanta's offense. It begins with the logjam that is 85-south heading in to downtown Atlanta. Horns blaring, people screaming, but nobody moving. A hush comes over the madness as a 69' Mach 1 Mustang comes screaming up through the shoulder, weaving in and around traffic. The image merges with John Carr weaving around defenders, dipping would-be hitters, and delivering strikes to receivers. The commercial ends with Carr heaving a massive strike down the middle of the field, cutting in and out with the car navigating the highway, and ends with Carr standing in the end zone of Warriors' stadium leaning up agains the Mustang. A voice-over ends the commercial - "This car delivers maximum Impact."

Ezekiel Elliott ($2m) - "Easy-E"
- This one is simple: Ezekiel makes running the ball look easy.
- After carving up the league, billboards will be posted all over Atlanta with Ezekiel Elliott and a photo of the famous N.W.A rapper, "Eazy-E" superimposed next to EE.
- During the first home game of the season, the first 5,000 fans will receive Eezkiel bobbleheads dressed up in N.W.A get-up and will be accompanied by a special Dr. Dre performed introduction video before the game.

Martin Back ($2m) - “We’ve got Martin’s back!”
- Martin’s PR campaign will be centered around a bid to make the well-traveled receiver feel at home in Atlanta.
- Coke, headquartered in downtown Atlanta, will feature Martin on case of Coke and Diet Coke throughout the season.
- A corner of the stadium will be designated as “Back’s Boosters” - providing a place for Martin to celebrate his many future touchdowns catches in the clutches of the best fans in the HIFL.
- Martin will be given a key-to-the-city by Atlanta's mayor.

Daryl Spurgeon ($1m) - “The Bully Pulpit”
- Playing on the name of the great theological Charles Spurgeon, except that Daryl’s religion is the gridion and he’s about to evangelize the entire HIFL.
- A number of food pantry’s will be opened in Downtown Atlanta in the name of Spurgeon.
- Every time Daryl completes a catch for a first down or scores a touchdown, an organ will play a specialized theme song for Spurgeon; letting the entire Atlanta fan base know that the church of Daryl Spurgeon is in session.

Eric West ($500k) - “Short Bull”
- Named after one of the most popular Native American chiefs to ever live, Short Bull carries on the legacy in the HIFL.
- While Eric may be short in stature, he’s completely unpredictable when the ball is snapped, and he’s coming out of the slot. Much like riding a bull - you never know when or how hard its going to send you flying through the air.
- A mechanical bull will be placed around the Warriors’ stadium with one lucky fan getting the opportunity to test their luck once per half. If the fan can set the new record, they’ll receive a signed Eric West jersey.

Noah Rose ($5.5m) - “The Ark of Atlanta”
- Noah Rose is the driving force behind the Warriors’ offensive line. When the ball is snapped, you may think you’re bringing the storm but Noah’s no stranger to overcoming 40 days-and-nights of rain.
- A kid’s playground will be setup in the southeast corner of the Warriors’ stadium, playing to Atlanta’s family friendly environment, in the shape of an ark. Noah’s likeness will be plastered throughout the playground where kids can see how they measure to the massive Noah Rose!
- Noah will be a guest in ABC’s “The Bachelor” where he’ll hand out roses to the women continuing on the show.
- A shoe deal with Nike will be in place, creating the Nike ARK 1.0’s, each pair with Noah Rose’s signature in rose gold on the right side, near the heel.
- The first 5,000 people to enter the Warriors’ stadium for the first home game of the season will receive a Noah Rose bobblehead.

Ali Muhammad ($500k) - “They Told Me I’m The Greatest”
- We’re going to do a massive commercial throughout the greater Atlanta market that has various clips of Ali Muhammad competing at the college level intertwined with Ali putting in hard work in the weightroom.
- Voiceovers from Muhammad Ali’s greatest moments intermix with the montage.
- The final clip is Ali standing in the middle of Atlanta’s stadium with the words, “They told me I’m the greatest” wrapping up the video.

Mario Cavanaugh ($1.5m) - "Super Mario"
- With the release of the new/old Nintendo console, a special released version will allow you to use Mario Cavanaugh as a playable character in the Mario games.
- The first 10,000 fans at Atlanta’s final home game of the season will receive Mario Cavanaugh monogrammed superhero capes.

Christopher Chandler ($1m) - “Controlled Chaos”
- If you’ve ever watched Christopher Chandler on the field, the only way to describe his game is this: it’s controlled chaos. Never a wasted motion; but cool, collected, and chaotic is what happens when he turns loose on HIFL quarterbacks.
- A special jersey will be used for a Monday night game that will be modeled by Christopher Chandler before the season begins - using the inverse colors of Atlanta’s current setup (i.e.; if the jerseys were gold and pants were red - we’ll flop to red jerseys and gold pants) with a special “Controlled Chaos” patch to be sold in the official Atlanta store.
- A billboard highlighting Chandler’s career in Atlanta will be erected in downtown Atlanta.

Raul McDowell ($1m) - "CAPTAIN S.W.A.T.S"
- The acronym SWATS was given to Atlanta by OutKast in the mid-90's. It stands for, "South-West Atlanta, Too Strong."
- Playing on the historical roots of Atlanta's musical background, Raul McDowell will participate in a one-time concert with a reuniting OutKast with a brand new song about the hard-hitting LB. All proceeds will go to a charity of McDowell's choosing.

Ross Dockery ($1m) - "The Clock Strikes"
- The clock never fails. It strikes at the same time of every day - just like Ross Dockery. He's always in the right spot at the right time of every game. And he does it time and time again.
- There will be a giant clock installed at the southwest corner of the end zone, that every time Dockery collects an interception or makes a big play, will chime.

"Good evening all,"

"Another offseason is in the books and we're ready for season 9. I think we've put together a strong team and looking forward to seeing what Coach J and company can do with this roster."

"I'm looking forward to seeing the offense on the field during preseason. I'm extremely happy to see John Carr fully healthy after a rough campaign last year and Ezekiel Elliott looks in top form. Our receiving core is strong from top-to-bottom, including Martin Back, who we think is going to be a really good receiver for us for a long time. Our OL is anchored by Noah Rose again this season and one of our top priorities is getting him signed to a long term deal as quickly as possible."

"On the defensive side of things, we've got the best defensive line in the league, in my opinion. Super Mario and Christopher Chandler are going to terrorize quarterbacks all season long."

"Any questions?"

"My being on the hot seat has absolutely nothing to do with the coaches and their impact on this team. That was my completely my doing. I believe strongly in these coaches and their ability to lead the Atlanta Warriors."

"Coach J is an absolute legend in the game of football and we're thrilled to have him back for one more season. We're going to learn any and every bit of information he can impart on to us before he rides off in to the sunset. Hopefully with a HIFL Impact Bowl trophy in his hands."

"When we scouted Eric West before the draft - we were blown away with his agility and the way he ran operated out of the slot. His lack of ideal height didn't scare us away in the draft and after seeing him during our camp, nothing has changed our opinion of his ability to play in this league."

"We're confident that West will hold up. He's 202 lbs. - which is right on par with the majority of the receivers drafted this season."

1. What did you gather from your preseason games?

It wasn't a great showing for us but we knocked off some rust and preparing for the regular season where things count.

2. How much stock do you put into your teams preseason performance?

Some of it was obviously a bit disappointing but we don't take a ton of stock in it.

3. With the start of the season finally here, what do you expect from your players in week one?

Hard work.

1. Talk us through this weeks game. What went wrong?  What went right?

"I'm certainly pretty bummed with the way our season has started out. I can't really point out anything specific except for our 3rd down conversation percentage. I like the way we're moving the ball - and defensively, I think we're right on the cusp."

2. How do you feel about your teams health so far this season?

"Having Noah Rose in the concussion protocol isn't a great thing for our team. He's our rock on the offensive line and we're hopeful he can get back soon."

3. How would you handle a player who was late to a team meeting and then was out after curfew the following week?

"It obviously depends on their reasoning. Every situation is different."

4. Talk to us about your upcoming game this week.  What will be the key to victory?

"Miami is an important game for us. Their passing game isn't connecting on all cylinders just yet but they have a strong running game. Stopping that will be extremely important."

Well, needless to say, Mr. Crowe...for the first three years of this franchise, the Warriors have seen their fair share of losing campaigns. Even more so after the success that came during the very first season of your inception. I've kept my eye in the league here and there since stepping away to deal with family issues, but I believe that if there is something I was able to bring during my previous tenure as a GM was a semblance of consistency and teams who work hard along with seeing a trend of upward mobility as time has gone on.

To put it in battle-like terms, my idea as a possible general to your troops here would be of a long campaign. I'd be looking for a guarantee of at least three seasons to get the Warriors rebuilt, re-mobilized and within playoff contention by Year Three, with the aim being to break through into the playoffs itself at that point. With that in mind, I also would like to know more about your own vision for the team as well, Mr. Crowe. Often, we see situations where GMs and ownership's visions might...clash with one another.

Mr. Crowe, I want to take this opportunity to just put it all out on the table. First let thank you Mr. Maximus Crowe for allowing me the opportunity to lead this proud franchise.  I am a knew GM in this league I am obligated to tell you that I cannot promise you an impact bowl tomorrow. I cannot promise you a playoff appearance next week.  What I can promise you are these three things, Hustle, Loyalty and respect.

I will hustle diligently to put a contender on that field and restore pride into this franchise. I will relentlessly and passionately make sure that all my decisions that are to made are made to insure that this franchise is successful.

I will try my very best to create an environment of loyalty through honesty and transparency to my players, my coaches, the fans and furthermore yourself. I will make Atlanta the franchise everyone wants to be part of. The franchise players want to come and end their careers on. A franchise where players will ask us to sign them.

And last but not least, I will respect this organization and its history and integrity. I will respect my coaches and my players in order to create an environment in which everyone will thrive. I will make sure everyone who walks through those doors understand the meaning of respect. Respect in that locker room, out on that field and most importantly when they are out there dealing with the real world they will know they are Warriors and must represent themselves and this franchise.

That is my promise; Hustle, Loyalty and Respect.

Now, down to team business. Atlanta has not had a winning season since season 6 when this franchise won 10 games. Since then this team has become periodically worst winning 6 games than 4 games and now suffering their worst season yet with only 1 win. With all that said, I don’t see failure. I see opportunity. Being at the very bottom only gives us one direction to go, up!

I believe a smart GM focuses on building a solid foundation through the draft. This is why I know this opportunity in Atlanta is appealing to many other GM’s. With 11 draft picks in the first 3 rounds we could be looking at a rise to prominence sooner than later. With that, I believe we can supplement the pieces needed to solidify weaknesses with smart free agents acquisitions. Once that is in place I believe with the right leadership we can land the leadership which will guide our younger players. That guidance and leadership will come from bringing in coaches that can evaluate our talent and put players in the best possible position to be successful.

Now looking at this roster, it needs many pieces on both ends. With that said, this team is not as bad as their record shows. Atlanta is lucky to have one of the best DE in Christopher Chandler locked up for a long time so we can build a defense around him. We need to build from the inside out starting at our interior lines from both sides of the ball. I know with the potential departure of Noah, our offensive line will be my first focus at hand. We will have a lot of money to allocate to make the intelligent improvements.  I am about maximizing talent to their full potential that is why bringing in players that fit the system is key. I truly believe that if you put a system in place and have the parts that fit, then success is imminent.
 
Mr. Crowe, we have the draft picks, the fan base and we have a team that is ready to start winning again.

Mr. Crowe, if I haven’t convinced you, let me leave you with this. I am not a GM that accepts failure. As a new GM you know I have not been tainted. I have no delusion of grandeur from a past GM life where I might have succeeded.  I have not been spoiled by meaningless victories or soured by the rejections of players or coaches. I have no gripes with league or any agents. I have no reason to get into a pissing contest with other GM’s that might hurt this franchise. All I have is the knowledge from many years studying this game. I understand all the rules and nuances so you know there will not be any penalty and fines and I am about this franchise first and foremost. 
Most importantly Mr. Crowe, while others may see this as the best possible “job” available I see this as an opportunity, an opportunity to bread Warriors, like the great Tribe of the Creek who once scouted these lands, I look to build a force of brave men looking to find their glory through their strengths.
I am prepared to wear the head dress and be the leader of this tribe.

  I would like to know what your timeline looks like... I have GM Strike Guy on my radar and he is asking for a 3 year plan.  What type of timeline do you see before this team is back in the playoffs?

I want to get back to contention, plain and simple.  I am tired of the bottom feeding, I want a team that is working to get better every year.  I am not asking for playoffs immediately, but I want to be out of the cellar.  It is not an easy division.  How would you build this team to contend with the strong defense of Miami, or the high power offense of Orlando... or the dual threat of Alabama?

Yes, it's definitely not an easy division by any means but I do believe that a solid coaching staff that is able to impart their vision on both sides of the ball and smart drafting will be essential to deal with the aspects of this division. If anything, my eventual aim is for a blueprint similar to Alabama's own. A consistency on both offense and defense will be key to deal with this division and it is something that can be achieved within the three years. The draft picks that we have and some of the current pieces of this team can definitely lead us that way.

Now, I am familiar with the fact that you are a big fan of running the football. I'm just curious if that is a big sticking point for any kind of offensive-oriented coaching decision that has to be made.
