like you waste your precious time with a kids league? Why aren't you still in big bad NY dealing with ARod and Jeter. Heck you could even be in Florida for the spring plying your sanctimonious trade. Maybe there's a reason you are in the NW covering high school kids, look in the mirror, this says alot more about you than the TBirds.
I live in one of the most scrutinized media markets for NHL in North America, we also have a WHL team and the difference in coverage is night and day, the Canucks are in first place in the NHL, on a season high 7 game winning streak and still getting ripped for not winning the right way. Yet the Giants are treated with kid gloves (pun intended) they don't face hard hitting questions and aren't exposed to media controversy surrounding their personal lives or even on ice struggles. These are kids and the media here gets that.
Even in other parts of the Dub, things are handled carefully, including the recent Bunz and Bell "situations".
Point is, you need to realize these are kids and not seasoned pros, and your job is to report the news, not create the news.
