Apparently the Cincinnati Bengals aren't happy with the local media. So they've restricted the local media to two corners on the practice field, which was brilliantly detailed by the Cincinnati Enquirer's visual journalist, Jeff Swinger.
Cincinnati claims that they're trying to cut down on sideline traffic during practices.
The local media is making the Bengals aware about how upset that they are by boycotting the first hour of practice.

I'm not sure if boycotting is the answer, but it has to be somewhat alarming that Cincinnati would apply something so suddenly on the media, who are usually the primary conduit between the team and its fans.
Things have just gotten interesting.
For those of you interested, the Hard Knocks crew still has free reign.
