‘“This all sort of started at the Sabres summit, which the team held back in spring,” reports Phil Kneitinger, who launched Black, Blue and Gold ( in October 2009. Kneitinger said that the forum began as a simple social gathering, where the Sabres sprung for pizza, wings, and beverages, but rapidly turned into a mock press conference. “There we were, the entire blogging community, firing questions and concerns to [team president] Ted Black, and he was firing the answers right back. Basically, we wanted recognition, credibility, and a chance to get better access to the inner workings of the team, and Black and the organization responded in a big way.”’
