Has anyone heard about how the cyclones should do this season since most of the star players graduated? All I have heard about recently is Unaka and, as usual, they will be lucky to win 4 games so I don't know why their making the headlines in the Star. I think everyone is wanting to see a E-town vs. Unaka game, but that will prob never happen.

as long as TC is at the star they are aparently going to brake their back to cover everything unaka. can't understand why he gets free reign down there. You'd think theyd get it that the ONLY people who want to see the sports page covered with unaka unaka unaka, rusty, rusty, rusty, drew drew drew are the people from stoney creek and they probably dont even buy the paper.

yea exactly. unaka is one of the worst teams in the state, and the ELIZABETHTON star should cover ELIZABETHTON football..not some little school that can't even beat unicoi.

While I agree the coverage of Unaka is a little much considering they're never very good, the idea that the STAR doesn't cover the Cyclones adequately is ridiculous. Lord forbid they talk about one of the county schools. Every time the Cyclones win, the Sunday paper has a huge picture and story on the victory. The story is suspiciously smaller when they lose.

That paper has catered to EHS for years, and it will continue to do so. People in the county buy that paper, too, although I don't understand why. And I'm not even a Unaka fan.

I have to agree the Star does cover the Cyclones pretty well... i'm even a Cyclone fan.

Regarding Unaka, they are suppose to be competitive this year, they have a very strong quarterback.

With that said, Yes TC does overexagerate his sons and Unaka... you would think that someone at the Star would see that and say something or at least make him cover other teams.

Tim Chambers didn't write the story in question. Marvin Birchfield did.

I'm not saying the star never covers ehs...thats all u saw last season in the sports section. But i dont believe i have seen any coverage on the new ehs team yet in the star...ive only seen the county schools. I am just curious as to how the new team will do since their seniors left.

Go back and look at the write-ups for Unaka, none were by Chambers, he covered TAD and middle school games and other High Schools most of the time. I am sure whoever covered the game put his son in there because he knew him but Tim could not help that. He covers the game fair and nothing is stopping you from getting a job at the paper and write about your kid. I have sent write-ups in for baseball and softball and youth basketball, they were all printed. Even if Tim’s son was in the paper a few more times than most, I am sure the cook at Hardies eats a free biscuit now and then.

Stop whinning about EHS coverage. Complain to the one who covers the cyclones not TC. And who gives a shit how many times his son is in the paper. Maybe if your kid did something news worthy his name would be in there to. If you don't like it don't read it. And Drew's name wasn't in the paper because his dad works at the paper it could possibly be because he deserved it. But if that were actually true then you turds wouldn't have anything to gripe about now would you? I bet TC covers Happy Valley this year so you guys can bitch about them getting too much coverage..!!! And there's not a one of you people who wouldn't give just a little bit more coverage to your kid if you could. Drew graduated so you will have to find another good kid to pick on. I hear that TC is friends with the petersons at Unaka, be careful of their son might be in the paper more than once or twice. You guys need to get a freaking life.

Way to go Bonnie. Some people can't stand it if they don't have something to complain about. If it's not Tim then it's someone else. I like reading tims articles, and he recognized all the kids not just Drew. Little League coverage was great this year thanks to Tim. Keep up the good work!
