The MSM/Blogger Rules

from Ian Mendes of Sportsnet,

There is place for both the traditional and new media to co-exist in the sports world in 2010. In fact, it’s ridiculous that we are still having this debate. But the problem is, both sides are far too suspicious of the other for us to close the gap between the two sides.

So in the interest of building a bridge between the bloggers and the mainstream media, I’ve put together a list of several rules for each side to remember.

It’s too easy to get lost

Help me welcome Samantha to the KK blogging world.  She has great insight on our game and I have always enjoyed her past blogs.

Her KK blog, like all the other new bloggers, will be up and running sometime in September and yes, there are more bloggers coming.


Hello from Portland, Oregon, where I live and will be blogging for Kukla’s Korner. I’ve been blogging about hockey for about a year now, and I’m very honored and excited to be joining the KK community.  If you’ve already visited 87in107, then you know how I ended up here. Sometimes I wonder myself. I grew up in Arizona (pre-Coyotes), and my hometown had exactly one ice rink. But that didn’t stop me from discovering hockey. Of course, it was on television and far away in Lake Placid in 1980.  Despite my humble beginnings in a desert, I still thought I knew and understood the sport. Until the 2009 playoff season, when I was watching Malkin’s no-look, back-handed shot into the Carolina net, and I realized that I didn’t even know what a hat trick was. And I certainly didn’t know the rules. So I learned them: all 87 in the NHL Rulebook in 107 days before the 2010 Olympics, the 30th anniversary of the day I discovered hockey. Since then, I’ve learned the entire IIHF Rulebook and I’m moving on to the collective bargaining agreement and anything else that strikes my fancy.

Recognize The Bloggers

from Ted Leonsis of Ted’s Take,

Bloggers tell more stories. Bloggers reach every nook and cranny of fan interest. Bloggers are passionate and talented. They care about your franchise.

As long as they abide by published and official guidelines I will always support the blogosphere as well as the mainstream media.

As an aside, if there are 150 million plus bloggers today, ISN’T IT TIME WE RECOGNIZE THEM as MAINSTREAM MEDIA?! Can’t get more mainstream than 150 million people.

Bloggers covering sports teams is like oxygen - get used to it!

Talking Hockey Bloggers

from Greg Wyshynski of PuckDaddy,

Credentialed bloggers usually enjoy the same access as a newspaper or radio reporter on a game night: a seat in the press box, fresh popcorn and access to the teams’ dressing rooms for postgame interviews. They cover the game, pass information to their audience, and have done so for the last several years without many incidents of unprofessional behavior, despite approaching the coverage from a fan’s perspective.

Yet several prominent NHL franchises, including the New York Rangers and Edmonton Oilers, have strict “no blogger” policies in their arenas. They don’t see them as working journalists, and they certainly don’t see a need for them to have access to cramped locker rooms after the game.

On Monday, these teams emphatically voiced those concerns during an annual preseason conference call between NHL executives and team media-relations directors. Their issue: If my team doesn’t credential bloggers in its home arena, why should bloggers haves access to my team’s locker room on the road?

In essence, these teams wish to see bloggers become a second-class citizenry in the press box: Given a ‘B-grade’ credential that allows them on press row and in the home-team dressing room, but prohibits them from interacting with players from the visiting team if that team has a policy against alt-media access.

Another Blogger Announced

I figured IwoCPO should announce this one at A2Y.

Do remember, when the new KK arrives in September, KK members will have the ability to block any KK blog from appearing on the KK Homepage but if you wish, you can still visit the blog directly by going to the homepage of that blog.

More bloggers will be announced in the coming weeks and do remember, if you applied for a blogging position, I highly recommend now is the time to submit a sample of your work at the KK Member Blog.

Update On The KK Blogger Search

I’ve started asking a few people to submit a story in the KK Member Blog and I have also noticed a few people have decided to use that area on their own too.

If you have applied for a blogging position and have not been contacted, don’t worry, you will be in the next few days.

I’m also asking KK members/readers to take a look at the posts there and feel free to leave a comment on any blog submission.
