You don't have to care about sports-blog "inside baseball" to find this reporting and analysis by Henry Abbott about the Mavs banning bloggers to be fascinating.
It's a perfect case-study of an owner, team and policy who just don't get it. (That it's coming from Cuban is, frankly, remarkable -- be sure to slap a Mavs logo on the ladder as you're pulling it up behind you.)
It is anti-media, anti-"open," anti-technology, anti-progress and -- worst of all -- anti-fan.
I was all set to blog about this myself, but Henry -- as he often does -- captured it in much the same way I can only hope I would. Maybe I'll chime in with more, but HA got it.
