Jordan bans Croydon Advertiser!

Jordan bans Croydon Advertiser!

The Croydon Advertiser has been banned from speaking to staff and players at Crystal Palace FC after it ran a story in which fans criticised the club's choice for next seasons kit.

The story has upset Palace chairman Simon Jordan.

Editor Ian Carter said: 'The Advertiser has always been proud of its association with Crystal Palace. But it is high time the club hierarchy realised that the Advertiser's loyalty does not mean we will simply act as their mouthpiece.

'The ban on our staff speaking to the manager or players is a ridiculous over-reaction to last week's article.

'We have no beef with manager Neil Warnock, nor the playing staff, and would rather have used our pages to focus on Palace's excellent win at Plymouth.

'But if we have a direct choice between losing access to players or cravenly agreeing to publish only stories the club's bosses personally approve of, there is no real decision to be made.'

A statement issued by Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan said: 'Over the last eight years I have tried to maintain a positive relationship with the local press and in particular the Croydon Advertiser.

'Unfortunately, despite my hopes, the club has continually been reflected in a disproportionate and negative light by this paper over the ensuing years to the degree where very few positive stories are given their due and the expected positioning or prominence within the paper.

'Contact from the paper to the commercial side of the club is non-existent unless it is to obtain a last minute quote to a negative story which on the converse to the many positives that the club is doing and those stories are blazoned across a multiple spread to exaggerate the issue.'

Is Simon Jordan being petyy or is he protecting the best interest of Crystal Palace????..........
