PR people know that choosing a spokesperson can affect a company's
reputation, but a case out of Fort Myers, FL proves that a
spokesperson's choice of a company can affect not only his reputation,
but also his job.
Paid dollars 50 a game, Ted Fitzgeorge, public address announcer for the
Florida Firecats Arena Football 2 League team, said he did a plug for a
Web site as a favor to a friend.
Unfortunately, it turns out the site, www.sinfulfantasies. com,
comprised, shall we say, significantly adult content.
Fired by the Firecats for pushing porn at a family event, Fitzgeorge
will, however, stay on as PA announcer for the Florida Sea Dragons of
the United States Basketball League and the Fort Myers Miracle, a Class
A baseball team.
What that says about the comparative moral standards of these sports is
perhaps something best left unexplored.
