John Terry runs into Chelsea official – is it the media’s responsibility?

So, driving out of stamford bridge at a crawl due to the media scrum surrounding his car, John Terry accidentally ran over someone’s foot. This was an unfortunate incident but this story should be more about the media’s role in the incident than John Terry’s. The unfortunate official injured was only there to protect the player from the mass of journalists trying to photograph the player. Perhaps they should have been focusing on the game that had just been played rather than trying to get a photo of a player, one which would reveal nothing but the face of a person driving through an unnecessary crowd.
