Oilers Shunning Blog Coverage of Team

Another blogger roundup prior to gametime at the gates of Rexall Place in Edmonton. "Lowe lied, blogs died!" was heard echoing through the downtown area.

In a fascinating and rather disturbing turn, the Oilers, in classic holier-than-thou fashion, have apparently banned a local blogger from the Rexall Place pressbox, citing "abuse of the press pass", or something to that effect.
This obviously is meaningless in South Florida, where independent bloggers have yet to be invited to the games (however, the Ice Dancers can be rented), but in locales which have welcomed and embraced the idea of "taking it to the streets" in a sense, this is setting a horrible precedent. Read on above.
Thanks to Going Five Hole.
