Sun keeps on snubbing Saints over snapper ban

The Sun is keeping to its vow to ban Southampton Football Club from its pages as long as the club continues to ban the media from sending their own photographers to the Saints St. Mary's ground. Instead, the club wants to sell pictures taken by its own photographers.
Today, the Sun again refers to Southampton as "South Coast Club" in its match report of the game against Bolton last night, both online and in the paper.

As much as I dislike the Sun, I certainly support their stance on this, Lord along knows how the sponsors are putting up with the lack of their teamshirts not appearing in the mainstream press.

Although I do seem to remember that Middlesbrough did something similar in the mid 90s but if I remember right it was more to do with stopping certain agencies rather than staffers.
