yeah local sports guys are in a tough place when people are here, we all know that, and i don't believe most people expect them to be *real* journalists... but then once the player leaves, at least TRY to maintain some dignity.... i don't mind them treating the players with kid gloves when they are here, i just don't like how the reporters do a 180 as soon as the player leaves town
