Quick NYI Fan Central Q & A

New York Islander Fan Central | 12/21/2007 07:45:00 AM | |
I got an e-mail today asking how I draw the line in the content I post here?

It's a great question because even thought this blog is connected to the Islanders website, I am not a member of the print media so do not take my NYI Fan Central Comments as some kind of writer telling you what's going on behind the scenes because that would not be fair or honest. I just give my perspective on an Islander or hockey related event.

Having written this when I look at other sites I try my absolute best to make sure the articles posted here are not from blogs, fan sites or message boards but newspapers with professional hockey writers. When those writers have a blog that's is acceptable to me for the same reasons Michael Fornabaio's blog appears.

I had this problem today deciding to include CSTV.com articles on Kyle Okposo and read the writers profile before deciding to include it in our daily news digest.
Another person wrote and told me about my stance against the New York Times not including Islander coverage in their paper which led him to question the publication in their hockey blog section.

One of the many thing here I will always do is question poor or incorrect Islander coverage. I may not always be correct but I will hammer my points home in an attempt to get this team blogs and hopefully full time New York Islander beatwriters in the Times, News or Post the way things used to be.

I hope folks pick up on this and do likewise.
