Sports Blogger Round Table Discussion

Here's video of me during a round table discussion on sports bloggers and whether they should be given credentials.

The other bloggers on the panel included Brad Wells of Stampede Blue and Jordan Lauterbach of Pro Sports Blogging.com. The host is Deniz Kofteci.

That was awesome kev i hope that the rangers some day will give you some access to the team, that would be pretty cool for you to get to know the guys

Kevin DeLury said...

bklyn rich, I'm Italian what do you expect.

Puck Central said...

Good job Kevin.

I thought you were going to have to pull a Boogaard there on the Colts guy to get a few words in. But, you answered the questions well and articulated your opinion so that anyone watching knew what you thought. I agree that it's ultimately the team's decision.

Kevin DeLury said...

Thanks Declan.

Gary said...

Man you guys need to keep your hormones in check.

Dave said...

Good job Kev, you should be proud of what the blog has achieved & appearing in something like this!

Kevin DeLury said...

Thanks Dave.

All I saw was 3 geeks that never had sex in high school...

Kevin DeLury said...

Yupy, and you're sitting in your parent's basement watching it. What does that say about you?

rusty said...

Nice shot, Kev. Yup, if yoou don't like it around here, as Alvin Dark once told Jim Bouton "take a hike son."

James Wrabel said...

Great stuff, Kevin.

As a blogger myself, I agree its ultimately up to the teams and no one else.

Let's go Rangers!

Good job Kevin. You owned it. Just to clarify, you believe it is up to the team to allow or not allow a blogger access but you think they should at the very least acknowledge you guys as FANS who are devoting lots of time and energy to them, and giving them free publicity? Something from the organization that says, we choose to not let you in, but we appreciate you and thank you for being a fan and putting in all this work. And she is very cute. She did a good job too. And she is cute. We are just complementing here, we didn't go NY Jets on her.

Kevin DeLury said...

iva, you've pretty much got a handle on what I'm saying. Yes I feel it is up to the organization, but the reason I think they need to reach out to the bloggers is not because I feel I need to be recognized, I think it's just smart PR for the team to reach out to fan blogs that are becoming increasingly popular by the day.

I mean when I started this blog almost three years ago I had about 10 hits a day, I'm now averaging over 3,000. To me that's significant amount of people.

You would think the Rangers organization would want to get on my and other popular blogs' good side with that large an audience.

BTW the Rangers are on my good side as they have given prizes for my fantasy hockey league and sent me a tweet wishing my daughter a speedy recovery.

hello nice stuff

Rick said...

Well done Kevin, I thought you expressed yourself very well and it is tough on TV to come across as such. Besides I guess that 5lbs on the camera is true-just kidding.

Agree that the NYR's as an organization need to accept the fact that blogging is going to be here for quite some time. And as they come to grips with the idea-it will be a special personality that needs to come to the forefront to make them feel confortable in their approach to this subject. Good luck.
