"You don't get information firsthand, because you are not allowed to get it. It would be a good idea to probably implement the same system that you have in the United States in Europe in terms of access."
-- Barcelona's Cameroonian striker Samuel Eto'o, during a visit to the USA, says if media in Europe were given more access to players there'd be less inaccurate reporting. Unlike in Europe, American sports leagues allow journalists into the locker room. Major League Baseball locker rooms, for example, are open to media for at least two hours before games and one hour after games. (AP)
