This

a lot of players are annoyed when they have to talk to reporters in the dressing room. reporters can talk to them on the court after the game and at press briefings after they get done in the locker room.

It sounds crazy in light of his most recent outburst, but according to an open letter from Robin Herman, Don Cherry was the first coach in the NHL to let a female reporter in the locker room.

great article by ron maclean on this issue:

Quote:
Much of what I’m about to say is informed by a legendary sportswriter, the late Leonard Koppett and his memoir “The Rise and Fall of the Press Box.”

Koppett was primarily a baseball writer and he explains the history of reporters in the clubhouse for what it is: a publicity arrangement. It’s business.

The clubhouse, which in other sports is called the dressing or locker room, belongs to the club management. The rules of that room are dictated by the club, not the performers.

Coaches and players often view any outsider’s entry into their private place as an intrusion. They think of it as their home. But for a brief window each day, it’s not. It’s their office. And it is the reporter’s office as well. It’s where the players and media transact in the same business: selling the game. The reporters get stories, generate publicity and the team sells tickets. Players resent but must accept this relationship.
Quote:
You may ask, why let reporters in? Why not just bring the players to a press conference? It’s two-fold. If reporters don’t receive such access there’s a risk they’ll seek out the player not brought to the press area. They’ll seek him out in a restaurant, bar or even at the family house. The dressing room is convenient. It’s quick. And the room availability frees the reporter to choose his or her subject, and get the coveted one-on-one interview.

When this business arrangement began, the voice in the conversation was homogenous. You had newspapermen and publicity men driving the message.

As with all reporting, our world is better off now that females and reporters of all beliefs and backgrounds have joined the conversation. Broadened its scope.
Ron MacLean: Dressing room is place for all media
