Please do me a favor: When that inevitable thread starts and all of these posters are "glad" we the media don't get more access to the team, please remind them of the difference between great access like the last two days and no access.
I always try to explain that our subscribers saying that the media should have less access means less information for them.
It's also very self serving. Which I have no problem with. I love the info myself, what I don't like is when Jimbo is made the bad guy for limiting access.
People here get mad at him for it because they can't get info and the media do because they can't get access. Jimbo does it because he believes its best for the team.
Just bothers me when he gets slammed as if he's wrong, when in reality it's because he's not doing what is wanted.
The team is supported by donations. Hes obligated to be more open. It behooves him to do it. When people here and read things they get excited, when they get excited they buy tickets, more tickets or better tickets, merchandise etc.
In a vacuum you are correct, but this is not a vacuum and Jimbo needs to understand that there is some PR involved with his decisions.
