What use to be open and easy to cover, practice now has strict rules. The players are not allowed to tweet at all during practice and as of recently reporters cant either.  Reporters are not allowed to report or tweet anything they see at practice only what they are told.

Reporters use to be able to interview players as they were walking off the field after a game, not anymore. There is now a 14 minutes cooling off period after all football games.

Reporters are allowed into the locker room but players can decline any interview.

What use to be easy and fun to cover now has a ton of rules and regulations. As the wall for journalism keeps moving more rules are added to reporting.
