Robert E. Hull: Where are the standings?


I have been reading your fine newspaper for more than 13 years and have never found any fault — until now.

Almost my entire reason for reading the Steamboat Today’s sports pages is to review the professional sports standings, such as the NBA and NHL. Your sports pages did not include these standings for seven straight days. Your Jan. 12 issue included local adult league basketball, soccer and volleyball standings. Who cares about those standings other than the few people involved in playing in those leagues?

I am sure that almost all adult male readers have an interest in professional sports leagues standings. I just don’t understand why these standings have apparently been eliminated from your paper. A proper sports section would include those standings every day.

It seems as though the newspaper industry is gradually losing readers, and I will become a lost reader if you don’t start including major league standings every day in your sports section. Please take action to return the missing standings back into your newspaper.

Robert, The pilot has not had followed sports of any sort outside of the local happenings for as long as I can remember. They will occasionally put in a fraction of national sporting news but it's soo clear that it's not in THIER interest to keep others informed. It's the first section I go to in any hard copy but teh pilot will never be into what's happening outside of the their valley. I am convinced that they will never have anyone qualified to offer their clients anything in terms of national sporting news. Too much pot coverage I guess. And it's really tough to hire a copy man, girl, boy.........
