Două despre jurnalism din ultimul Blizzard. Barry Fry, directorul sportiv de 68 de ani al lui Peterborough, întrebat dacă mentalitatea jurnaliştilor s-a schimbat odată cu vremurile:
When I started, journalists used to come on the team coach with us. If anything happened, it was kept quiet. You treated ’em like one of yours, you give ’em all the facilities, all the interviews and they respected that if there was a fight on the bus, they didn’t report it. Now, you’ve only got to spit, fart or f**king giggle and it’s on the front pages. Times have changed.
Apoi, într-un interviu despre vechii jurnalişti sportivi din Anglia, maestrul Brian Glanville îşi aduce aminte despre un anume ziarist de la The Times:
I’ll say this about him: he had tremendous prestige that he never used. He never led the way morally. He could have been a beacon for the sport but didn’t do it. He liked to be liked.
