Today, yours truly is at Philadelphia Eagles training camp as a member of the media. I’ve been to camp numerous times before, but this is my first experience with media credentials.
Therefore, I went to this morning’s walk-through practice not knowing exactly what to expect. What I found (so far) is that everyone seems nice, helpful and informative.
And that the Lehigh University campus is a little confusing to navigate.
On the practice fields, there are defined areas where the media is allowed, but there is apparently a grey area or two as well.
For example, I was told I could walk up the middle between the two practice fields in the back, and then down either sideline of the main two practice fields. However, there is an area in the middle (between the two sets of fields) that is right next to a tent that has refreshments.
I was like, “oh cool, they’re supplying water and Gatorade for the media.” Turns out, that was for the players, not the media.
That must have been why I was...
