    No media

    BBC are reporting that we have stopped player doing media work between now and the final. Great decision if true.

    Best decision if true.

    Let's do the talking on the park.

    Makes total sense.Closed shop without distractions.Let them focus on what is important.Also limits outside influence as the press have tried to stir up a lot of crap with Hibs when unjustified.

    Great decision as the press always ask leading questions and make up headlines around the players responses. Let them talk to Black, Webster and Zaliukas. They can prepare our prematch team-talk for us.

    How so?

    I'd rather Hearts players made a big speculation of it in the media while our own players just focus on what they need to do.

    Jim Spence said on twitter that they asked the club for a player to go on the radio tonight and comment but they said no as they want the players to focus on the relegation battle we have. He didn't mention the rest of the season but fair play to Hibs if that's the decision they have made

    Good decision I think if they do this for the final! Not sure about contractual issues with sponsers etc though.

    I was going on and on about this exact thing to my old man coming home from the semi on Saturday - its about time we do our talking on the pitch and not through the media when we play Hearts.

    I know it won't happen but I would also like less songs about Hearts before the game (hopefully we can sing during and after the game ) - lost count of the number of times the Roseburn has been in full voice BEFORE the game then we are sent home with our tails between our legs after another defeat. We need to concentrate on doing our talking on the pitch before we sign songs about Hearts.

    No chance it will be until the final.

    No. More likely to be until relegation's sorted out.

    I'd expect this comes from the manager - good thinking, IMO. I notice McPake has been quoted as saying that the Kilmarnock match at the weekend is now the most important match of his career.

    You can be sure that the Hertz Press & Media team will attempt to use the Hibs embargo decision to their advantage.

    It's only the players. PF will still be available to the media.

    I think it's a good decision in the short term. Everyone is high as a kite so it lets everyone calm down and gather their thoughts.

    No big deal.
