I'm sure if the J de M is deemed as being very close to the line, it is hinted to their people that their access will be affected. Nothing as dumb as a ban, because that would be great theater for any media outlet. A hint is passed on that your paper may not be called on as often as others in pc's. Maybe La Presse will get a scoop. You can pay someone back, but more often than not, classy people take the high road. I think some media members do deplorable things. otoh, if something juicy about a Habs' personal life shows up tomorrow, we'll have 6 threads and 100 pages by lunchtime. So lets go easy on the indignation.
BTW, the Theo pictures, I never saw 'em. You want tabloid stuff to disappear, don't look at it.
I agree with you........
But maybe than can reduce the number of journalist covering the Habs to one.....we don't need 3 guy of J.Montreal in the locker room after the game???
