    Could we sponsor Khan to be our camp reporter next year?

    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.
    Sure going to miss your camp reports buddy, you're better than all those paid hacks. They should pay you to go.

    The rest of the Mane reporters are good too.

    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.

    I can't wait to hear guys like Peter King butcher our roster

    Last year's stars according to him were Michael Pittman and Chris Johnson

    Is it just me (with those with twitter) or is there a lot of beat writers and writers on Twitter complaining about their jobs recently about being 60
    + hour/week jobs?

    Hopefully some of the blogs like MHR get access, at least they are your more dedicated and detailed specific.

    It's a shame that the Denver Post beat writers are so disinterested in their own jobs....
