What Changed?

from The Universal Cynic,

Bloggers should be allowed in the press box if they dress without affiliation (i.e. no team gear), do not cheer, and are barred from asking players questions in the dressing room. (If you get the impression that I’m not hot on the idea, you’d be right.) The question still remains—why the hell do all of you want access, anyway? For years, many bloggers insisted that being being allowed behind closed doors wasn’t necessary. Everyone was content to play Bill Simmons. What changed?

more and other topis too…

Bloggers want….  Again, it’s as though one hockey blogger says something, and that represents what everyone wants.  It doesn’t work that way.  But, once a few bloggers get into the press box, others will be jealous, and do what they can, good and bad, to get in.  We will see which way the traffic flows.

In fact, I would like to see which way the traffic trends, and how readership reacts when bloggers get in the booth.  Do they read more or less from the locker room gang, do the press row blogs get more hits?  I wouldn’t be surprised if that were not the case.
