saying it is a boston newspaper is an attempt to lend that article more credibility than it actually deserves. You would never ever see the herald or globe write an article praising a NY ranger for a non fight against O'Reilly. never. there were never any patriot ledger "sports writers" in the Bruins locker room after games. I can understand that when they write pieces like that about a NY ranger at the expense of one of the most revered Bruins in the organizations history.
This is why it isn't a Boston newspaper. it is a south shore newspaper. fotiu played for cape cod in the minors. married a girl from southern Mass. etc. it's obvious what region they cover. they also coverd hartford sports as well. were they a connecticut paper as well?
