    Taking a closer look at Ryan's criticism of Shanahan

    There is no shortage of blame to go around for the Atlanta Falcons’ collapse in Super Bowl 51.

Maybe you think of competitors like the New England Patriot controversy "spy gate", where the goal is to learn as much as you can from competitors. Perhaps your goal is to ensure you are different from the competition. Or maybe you think of it like a source of talent like free agency, where you can poach your top adversaries to come join your team. I recently gave a keynote speech at the International Dairy Deli and Bakery Association (IDDBA) in Anaheim. In attendance were ten thousand executives from big and small companies were all showing off their best products to retailers to win valuable
