This whole circus surrounding ML is unfair and unbalanced. Some members of the media keep whining "we're just doing our jobs". No you're not. Doing your job would be identifying the difference between a story and a non-story, then focusing on the story. 2 things here:
1) Some of this crap is taking pressure off of Denver
2) This is also unfair to Denver. "86 hrs of media coverage"? Then 43 of those hrs should be focused on Denver and the great things they accomplished this year. This is also Denver's SB. Their day in the sun. Why are they being deprived of this deserved attention (or sheltered from it)?
Shoddy reporting is the only explanation.
