‘“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 (blackbluegold.wordpress.com) 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.”’
