“I've Always Been This Stupid”

Since: May 12

The new editor has brought some new ideas to the paper. I see nothing wrong with that. A sports section should be about more than just covering games. It is refreshing to see an article about tusculum's coaches or about local players on the Walters state volleyball team. Why do you think the paper is so bad during the summer when there is nothing but baseball? It's because they never wrote about anything but the games. I commend the new editor. I also commend Wayne and Phillip Gentry for staying active in the paper. A mix of establish members and new blood is always a good thing.

I always find it funny when people complain just to be complaining. I personally don't care about sports, therefore I don't read the sports section daily. However, I can tell you that there are coaches, parents and children, in this county that are happy about the changes. When you have change some are going to like it, some wont.. thats what we have here. i know for a fact there are a lot of people who like it, so don't say "we all" know its not better because you have no right to speak for everyone. Obviously there are people that thought the newspaper needed refreshing, both the news and sports. Nothing wrong with that. It's not a slight on Mr. Phillips, times change. Look at the papers around here, the News Sentinel runs big pictures every day, none of you come on here and complain about that. If there are games that aren't getting covered in place of these pictures then maybe the wise thing to do would be to get of topix and go talk to the new gentleman about it. But if you are complaining about there being more pictures just to show your butt, then that's sad. The paper should be about the local kids, not you people that have bitterness in your souls.

1960 had a better sports page than today.and are you talking about wayne,well who is still writing stories for this paper.are you talking about tiny day in your comments?oh, i forgot you just started reading the sports because your kid just started playing sports.do not tell us how its better now,we all know its not.
Seems to me that it's the same handful of kids pictures in the paper over and over, because there mom's tweet the sports editor the pictures. Some of the "girls" getting all this exposure do nothing during the game and not relevant to the sports story. And all those stupid snow pictures in the winter they dedicated pages of the paper to really. You think those kids subscribe to the paper?
My opinion the Wayne and Joe days were less who ya know to get in sports section and more on how you played. Joe was screwed by the paper just like a lot of other people for cheaper labor. Its everywhere , no loyalty anymore!
