How sports journalism has changed

I love this article on how sports journalism has changed over the course of a century.

Twitter is, of course, the modern carrier pigeon - direct, slightly risky but nonetheless gets the message across most of the time.

But it's the relationship between the journalist and the sportsman that seems to have come full circle - Twitter now allows direct access to what they really think, which is, of course, useful for generating news but also lets fans feel that bit closer to the players.

And that's much more like the days reported in this article, where Bill Evans used to hang out with the footballers or at least check his match reports with them before filing copy.

So, will we be bringing back Oxo as a medicinal drink, too?
