    Five years ago I would have been all over this. But it sounds like an entry-level type of job. I believe this same job was posted not too long ago, maybe earlier this year.

    anyone try to apply here?

    Monster redirects to the team website. There is a lot going on. Lots of graphics, pirates, treasure troves.... no job application though.

    I can understand the confusion. But, as the ad states, you need to click on "Customer Service," which is the seventh item along the top menu bar (under the image of Tanard Jackson). At the next screen, click "employment on the left-hand menu. At the next screen, scroll down to the bottom and click the contact link. You can figure it out from there.

    big sleeper:

    thanks for the help

    I was extremely disoriented by the flash intro. And were those file photos of Keyshawn Johnson and Kevin Jones? I don' tthink Detroit has played in their black uniforms this season. Also, what's with the clips of all the TB players getting injured. GREAT INTRO TO THE SITE GUYS!

    Lets show all of our offensive lineman tearing their ACL'S then let's show Jeff Garcia getting sacked. Or you can scroll down and check out the scary shadowed pirates and cannons and what not.

    cool site though.

    (I'm a looser fangirl.)

    Jobs like these don't pay shit and are often just a turnstile. Burn one youngster out in a year or two, another one jumps in.

    You're also basically writing expanded press releases for the team -- there's no real reporting involved since the players know you work for the team and will talk at length because they know you won't ask them anything tough.

    I suppose it's good for fangirl loosers like Flash, but beyond that, I don't think it's a great gig.
