The Failure of Wolves Sports Journalists

As a frequenter of various Wolves blogs I see some very salient points brought up again and again.  Often there are some very savvy questions raised by blog-goers that never quite seem to be addressed in the "real" world.  

I often see people wonder why very odd decisions are made by the coaches or staff of our NBA team.  The weird thing is that we never really get to hear any rationale for why these things happen.  Sometimes a random blog poster will go to a special lunch with the GM or something and then we will hear third-hand answers to some very pertinent questions.  But mostly we just see really odd things happen again and again, and we never get to ask anyone why.

Now normally there is a system of journalists who act as a midpoint between the customers of the team, (us the fans) and the decision-makers of the team (coach, fo).  The journalists pay attention to what is going on and are engaged with the community and they ask the obvious questions that everyone is wondering.  

Unfortunately here in Minnesota we seem to have journalists who are sort of off in their own world.  They work on their puff pieces that they think are great.  And they "interview" Rambis after games filled with extremely unorthodox decisions.  But we never seem to hear the questions asked that we are all thinking.  

In some ways it is like a dictatorship.  There is a Royal King, and he has one mouthpiece who he talks to.  And then there are the lowly subjects who see injustices and outrages happen daily.  And the lowly subjects would love to be able to ask the King why?  But that might upset the Royal King so the mouthpiece just asks him where he got his shirt tailored.
