As Phillymag.com points out:

Spadaro is a member of the Eagles communications department and cashes checks cut by Jeffrey Lurie, which puts him in a bit of a bind, though, when it comes to working with his more loose-lipped peers in the media.

Astute fans aren’t sure exactly what to make of Spadaro, who is unquestionably informative yet comes with the baggage of bearing the team’s official (and often sanitized) message.

To his credit, Spadaro is cognizant of all this and doesn’t take himself too seriously. Displayed prominently in his office at the team practice facility — amid priceless Birds memorabilia collected over the years — is a piece of paper with a quote from Kevin Cooney, a veteran sportswriter for the Bucks County Courier Times. It reads: “The real threat to journalism in the new millennium is Dave Spadaro.”
