I'm sorry but this whole article just strikes me as being vindictive on the part of the writers. They no longer can use the Isles play on the ice as the butt of their jokes and now that it looks the like the front office and the franchise is finally getting pointed in the right direction after the decades of circus escapades both on and off the ice the writers needed to find something new to bash the Islanders about.
Should it not be the Isles and only the Isles choice as to who they grant press credentials to? If they didn't like what Botta was writing about the team and what he was saying to the players in private that negatively affected the organization and it's relationship with it's players it should be their decision to revoke his credentials. Botta needs to grow up and stop being a baby.
