Re: @LarryHolder's story on Spags: Instead of focusing on the messenger, focus on the message. Some valid, troubling criticisms were levied.
Ummm... wouldn't the messenger be a key as to whether or not the message is even valid to begin with??
Media coverage of any sport in this town - and state for that matter - is an utter joke. I can think of only a couple of real professionals who didn't act like sycophants to the local teams, their players, and their coaches: Peter Finney and Buddy Diliberto.
The writing, analysis, and commentary by the media is so far below what should pass for professionalism that I usually laugh them off once they get past the who, what, where, and score.
Many local media outlets are now trying to pass off glorified bloggers as 'sports journalist'. Nearly all of these clowns wouldn't last a day in a legitimate media market.
