The good ones actually seek out some of the players as they leave the field and talk to them. And they'll talk to the players and coaches about who has become interesting. In the Posts case, they'd read our camp reports and then pretend they noticed too. It will be interesting to see how they do without the fans to help them notice what the crap is going on.
Right! That's why I started doing the camp reports. I got tired of reading the same BS from the papers. I mean back in the day it was fluff piece after fluff piece. Nothing about how the players were doing in camp. How they might be getting better. It'll be interesting this camp if they go back to the old format or they start telling us some real information out of camp.
