Because the press don’t give a flying one what you, I, or any other Palace fan wants to know; they’re interested in a bit of team/injury news to help with their Saturday publications/shows, and then just after some sound-bytes about topical issues. You’ll get a bit of embargoed stuff in local publications that comes out a day or two later, but the nationals don’t care.

This is a mandated press conference, where the lead questioner is always from Sky. It is not an internal PR stunt

Absolutely brilliant. Thanks for that. I've been supporting Palace for decades, have a season ticket, seen Palace at well over 100 different away teams and still have been to away games this season, including a long drive to Merseyside tomorrow. You learn something everyday.

What is it exactly you need to know, beyond the emails, and huge amount of news posted every day on the official site?

Because they don´t want to rock the boat. Same in every sport and lots of other areas. You won´t be there long if you ask the relevant and interesting questions. And who wants to be kicked off these gigs?

Well taking yesterday for example I wanted someone to ask if we were looking at bringing in someone out of contract, or if there is any news on RLC? The manager can refuse to answer but I just don't understand why the journalists don't ask?

I don't think anyone would have been marched out of the press conference by brown shirts and shot in the court yard for asking the questions you posed. More likely that no one even considered them and we can assume that there are no free agent signings imminent, and that there is no change to RLC's injury status until we receive an email linking us to an update on the official site.

Re RLC. This would normally be covered off with the first question but instead if asking for an update they specifically asked re Wilf because of the interest/concern. If RLC was back I suspect he would have been mentioned if only to balance the Wilf situation. But this is regularly asked so no ongoing issue here.

Re the transfers thing. Isn't it a pointless question? With such a small pool of targets and competition probably fiercer, the last thing the club could/would be expected to do do is hint who or even if we are looking. So it would probably just be a waste of mins in the broadcast section as they ask without hope of answer. I understand why you are intrigued. I am not sure there is anything wrong with organising the sessions so that they run smoothly. It is 'live TV' and needs to go well. The journalists get longer less formal time after that session. It's orchestrated by Joanne Budd isn't it?

EDIT - looks like CA asked a question re Nasri which must have been in the offline section.

We only see the broadcast section, when the TV companies are looking for shortish answers that they can drop into their bulletins, eg 30 second update on Wilf’s injury.

Wilf is of interest beyond just us, so he’s news.

They have limited time so will concentrate on the player or snippet of info that is most newsworthy.

To use your examples, the situation on RLC hasn’t changed since it was last covered and has already been reported in the press. So nothing new on him that’s worth broadcasting really.

They could have asked the non-contract question, but maybe anticipated Roy would just bat it back and not reveal anything on this anyway.

But once the cameras were off, then I agree that a journo could have used their additional time to ask that question. Maybe one did, but we’ve not read anything about it as Roy did indeed keep tight lipped on this.

It's not just that you don't understand, you don't know why not. So why then do you feel it necessary to insinuate (borderline accuse) that it's the club's (and chairman's) doing?
