Yes all coaching meeting are filmed by Arthur......He says he wants to see what is being discussed in his absence
You could Google it as well as anyone but I also recall reading this in the AJC some years back.
I could...but...I think we both know I won't find anything. I call BS. Does Blank have video calls with Smitty, TD and McKay? No doubt. But does he demand that every meeting is taped just so he can micromanage? I seriously, seriously doubt it.
I have been reticent to jump in here because I DO think Haley is a little tin-foily, but in all honesty I wouldn't be surprised if all the meetings are indeed taped, and there is plenty of monitoring of locker rooms, medical facilities, etc...As a matter of fact, a slew of industries do this not because of micro-management but because of liability.
If a coach or a person in a position of authority makes a promise that cannot be fulfilled and a legal issue can arise, you would be stupid NOT to 'get it on tape'..Hell I've worked in businesses where they not only monitor every word, but every email and hard line phone call as well. Happened to me when I worked for the Humane Society 7 years ago! My old lady says every single professional meeting she has with ANYBODY is on hard drive. Now, think about an NFL locker room. Someone accidentally gets shot in it, and you have no tape showing it was just some dumbass showing off his 'hardware' and your ready for a 'Proper Sandusky' if your name is Arthur Blank. Or, a fistfight occurs. Who threw the first punch? Lets say Roddy gets lippy with Abe and he punches him in the face, breaking his eye socket. Not only do you need witnesses, etc it helps if it's caught on tape, especially once lawyers and insurance gets involved. Believe it.
Now, I am not saying what Haley said is true, but the idea that Flowery Branch is monitored is not 'cuckoo'. And given Arthur's past and how he likes the technology to 'save $$' I wouldn't be surprised. Remember Jam98? Think they flew him in for a workout, or watched his tape? Because it has already been admitted they only watched his tape, and hence when he sucked everyone was like 'what did they see in this clown?'..Recall how TD was hired face to face over a steaming plate of Stephanie's Patented Lasagna? Of course not, because his interview was a video conference. So we dont really know, but like I said it would not suprise me in the least.
