Did you, or other writers, see that and decide to do something on the side like this blog so it did not interfere with what your editors or papers wanted with normal pieces/articles?
It was Mosley. I emailed him a 'complaint' during camp that there was little substantial in the reports re how players performed, who excelled at what, who was beating whom in competition, what the coaches were up to, etc.
He replied that fans don't want to hear about 'technical' stuff like 'jamming'.
I don't know if the blog is aimed to give more technical info, tho - I saw exactly ONE blog entry by Mosley last summer that sounded like he actually watched a practice, and if I recall correctly he made a little joke about actually watching one.
Mostly the blog is about the tv show House, what books Mosley's read, rehashes of the press conferences, and lately who Tony is dating...another great opportunity lost, imo - whomever the blog is for, it doesn't seem to be for the 'jammers'.
I wish the DMN would hire Vela.
