nba- Code of Ethics

The San Antonia Spurs clearly are the favored team of the international press corps, considering the team has representatives from four different countries and one U.S. territory. ... Several of the foreign press corps have been slapping hands and patting the backs of Spurs players after victories or big performances. One Asian newspaper representative appeared in the team's locker room after the game with the Spurs logo painted on her face. Even worse, she was wearing an "I Love Manu" tattoo on her arm as she conducted interviews.

I have been to many a sporting event wearing a media pass, and the unwritten code is no cheering allowed by any of the media. Looks like the foreign media has another standard.
