Trecker, on the cost: "The idea of charging the media for a basic need such as admission to an event or a space to put your car is antithetical to the very kernel of sports journalism from a public relations point of view." More Trecker: "The idea of limiting that in any way is beyond absurd, especially for an event that, once again, needs publicity" (ESPN.com, 4/23).
