No wonder they don't want a real look inside. No incompetent org would.

Not everything HAS to be a fluff piece. Even when ITV had proprietary rights to the Oilers it was anything but safe commentary. Plus that club on the ice was largely beyond criticism. But the coverage didn't ignore critical analysis.

It hasn't always been a Gene Principe universe here. Coverage of any type used to not shy away from telling it like it is. But when you have a club accrediting media coverage on the basis of chronyism and expectation of syncophant muttering I suspect this is the pablum we get.
Perfectly valid critisims of the organization and the media members that leech off them.

Should be noted though, Aquila productions is not a neutral 3rd party, they are owned by the Katz group. They probably aren't going to get into the business of criticising other parts of their parent company.
