    Poin's point, I'm guessing, is that many well-connected writers manage to report the stories without habitual gushing about who called them back on the cell.

    I could be wrong.

    Maybe, but I would think people might wonder where he got his quotes from when he's in New York, and he's getting quotes from players across the country.

    Stating that he spoke to them clears up whether these are pool quotes, or quotes he went out looking for himself. I doubt there were many people writing the column he did for SI today about Sunday's injuries making extra regular season games unrealistic.

    i have no problem identifying how a quote was snared for a story. matter of fact, my paper requies it if you weren't at the event.

    "so-and-so said from his home/cell phone/whatever."

    we're taking peter-bashing to an extreme, people, no?

    There are some things to get annoyed about with PK. I don't think this is one.

    Would it be less impressive if they were contacted with a land-line phone?
  12. They still have those?
