Quote from: Zanzibar Buck-Buck McFate on July 10, 2023, 12:09:42 PMDisregarding the blather about "enterprise journalism" (WTF) this makes sense.  Nobody reads the NYT to find out how the Mets did last night.  They can still cover sports-related stuff whenever they deign to notice.

For the record, this is 100% not true. The Times has a long and distinguished history of covering New York sports and it 100% was read by New Yorkers for that reason. My father, a native New Yorker, always had it as his sports section of choice to the point that he subscribed despite not having lived in New York for years.
I wish to hell I'd never said "Winning isn't everything it's the only thing". What I believe is, if you go out on a football field, or any endeavour in life, and you leave every fibre of what you have on the field, then you've won.

I stand corrected.  Though if I had written "Today nobody reads" etc. I would have been close to the truth.

I mean, he's still alive but sure. That said a lot of local papers have lost daily sports readership over the last 20+ years. I used to read the Star everyday and probably haven't read an article there in years either. My point was more that the NYT, as much as any paper, has a long and distinguished history of sports beat coverage.

I agree with that for sure, and some of it is (ironically) noted in the NYT article today announcing the decision.

And I certainly didn't mean to insult your father!  I wish him many years of happiness ahead (even if he's a Ranger fan).

Boo all New York teams. Except the Jets. Double boo them. Actually, I can't wait for Hard Knocks!

I went to cancel a couple of months back and they suckered me in with a deal for a year's membership for not very much.

I imagine the Leafs coverage will continue to be decent, and also the Newcastle United content, but I enjoyed stumbling across random stuff about other clubs but I can see that kind of thing suffer if they've fewer dedicated writers.

I think it's telling that I didn't want to pay full price for it any more, though.

So still on TSN for broadcast, and still on SDPN/the CJ show for podcast, but writing is no longer through the NorthStar Bets/Tor Star network.

Ugh, brutal. I grew up watching him on TSN. So young.

Terrible news
Shocked to see this, this morning. By all accounts a wonderful person. Seems his C had spread everywhere. We can all take comfort he will suffer no more.
