I like to consider myself a journalist. I cover the Colorado Avalanche because it is the team I enjoy and because they play in the city that I live in. I’m in the midst of my third full season covering the Avs and have yet to receive any financial compensation for the blood, sweat and tears that I put into my work. Still, I do it for the love of the game. I do it for the benefit of the people who read what I have to say. And I do it with my own strict set of journalistic ethics and morals, abiding by what I was taught as right and wrong during journalism classes at the University of Denver – in between Pioneers hockey games – and by what I have learned about morality during my life.
While this may appear as a flip flop to my previous defense of Colorado Avalanche head coach Joe Sacco, I will admit that I struck that position merely to counter the spreading opinion that he may be the real problem in Denver. That said, it is starting to appear like a lot of the trouble that this team is having could be the result of the guy in charge night after night.
While it may be hard to accept when your favorite player, someone you have grown fond of, is shipped away from your local team, fans of the Colorado Avalanche need to remind themselves that they enjoy winning.
