Can’t Help But Wonder….

… if the Globe was sick of the various Celtics blogs banging on them for their crappy Celtics coverage.  We certainly haven’t been shy about it.  Except for the major stories… the Globe has been a non-factor when it comes to the C’s.

But now Shira Springer has been demoted… and today the Globe put up a very un-Globe like tidbit… which just happens to be very blog-friendly.  KG is in LA schooling current and former NBA players… and still working out with and recruiting Reggie Miller.

It was posted by the assistant sports editor, Greg Lee.  I don’t know why, but I feel like this little tidbit might not have been posted in the past.

  1. Gawd this good news. I’m sick of Shira’s danny spoon fed none news.

    I wonder if I’ll be called sexist again.


    …althought it would be funny for Cedric to tell her to go make him some eggs.

  2. It is an interesting concept that the Globe has been very cautious.

    Now that Reggies has biowed out, what does that say about the Globe’s policy?

    Who says Shira has been demoted?
    Is “beat writer” really such a sought after position?

    Too much travelling, too little latitude for opinion and speculation.

  3. The report was that she’d become a sports features writer…. which doesn’t exactly sound like a promotion to me. After beat writer, you’re supposed to become a columnist.

  4. I have been very frustrated with the lack of coverage from the Boston papers. There are several players working out in Boston. Tony Allen is rehabbing. KG is working out in LA. Pierce is in China. Lots of stuff to write about and yet day after day there is nothing in the paper. Today, we had to read the Indy Star to find out that Reggie Miller isn’t coming to Boston. Nothing in the Globe, Herald or any other papers. I just checked again and they do have a little blurb in the Globe blog section about it. And when we do get coverage, it is a fluff piece by Shira or a piece by Peter May that loosely resembles fact. I hope with the new guy we will get some quality coverage.

  5. I don’t want to sound all high-and-mighty here… but I’ve come to find out that blogs play a big role in trying to make sure those papers do what they’re supposed to do.

    There are more than a few blogs out there… and many of us have a good number of readers. Those guys have to be aware of what’s going on in the blogosphere. If we’re always on them… they’ll know they’re letting down a large number of readers.
