Because the press box has assigned seating for bloggers. The seating list, as well as each seat, shows the guest name, and what site/blog they are with.

So on this list they have his name as Garth? I was just curious what this guys name is and why he can't blog using it?

So you are saying if I, Ghost of Dwight Drane, had a Sabres blog.....that I would have full access to the press box and interview room after games? There is no way. I would be gone after asking 3 real questions.


Part of the requirement is proof of readers, other than that, yes, you could get yourself evicted from the interview room

Thanks guys for all the help. So does SabreSpace meet the requirements, and is anyone there representing in any way?

For some reason I thought Chz had media credentials.

I haven't asked this year. I had more fun sitting in the stands and being just a regular person than paying attention to every single detail and writing about it.

Besides, my job now wouldn't let me do it.

I like

Raymond - my problem with him however is he's too much like our other soft skill guys. Though his skill does seem very high.
Brunner - Would really like to get him on the Sabres
Morrow - Character guy, team first mentality, has lead a young rebuilding team in the past and has played with Ott. To me Vanek leaving or staying wouldn't matter in signing him.

What is the appeal of Brunner? A small. soft 27 year old with 58 games of NHL experience? He's fits the mold of what many fans are hoping the Sabres are trying to get away from.

Please tell me the press pass has a picture of Dana Carvey on it. If I was in charge, I would have a simple rule about giving out press passes, if you publish your work under a fake name, you don't get a pass. I'll settle for pen names, but none of these cheesey one word nicknames.

How about the ability to type out reports fluently in proper English? (*COUGH COUGH GARTH*)

I'm just saying, the times that I've used a press pass, I've never seen anyone from hockeybuzz up there.

Ghost, RCentered is correct. If you have an established blog, you can certainly request a press pass. I would see no reason why SabreSpace wouldn't meet requirements. The team can deny requests if all spots are already full, or if they need the slots for a nationally televised game.

Chz is also correct that it is usually more fun to just watch in the normal seats, which is what I normally do. You don't get free food and drinks, but you get to relax and enjoy the game and show emotions.

That's the real tragedy - What 10 years of watching the softest team in the league will do to you.

I think he's taking a pass this year...despite my better judgment.

Hopefully his players will be better at taking a pass this season.
