But if you had taken a trip to the “Blog Box” on Long Island on Saturday night, you would have seen something quite different: A group of fans segregated from the rest of the press who were only allowed guided access to Islanders players and no access to the visiting locker room at all.

All throughout the SI.com piece, you’ll see claims about how this “experiment”—one that comes complete with a couple of academics from a university in Pennsylvania who ought to be ashamed of themselves—is some sort of incredible innovation in sports media.
