I get SN, but I probly wont be renewing it. Aside from a few good college bball writers, its a load of crap, IMO.
The number of eyes/readers using print media is nowhere near what it once was. Therefore, revenue from advertising isn't what it once was. Therefore overhead cannot support the talent to meet your expectations of what was once a well-respected brand in sports, in The Sporting News. This goes for any newspaper. And, it's because places like the cafe we all frequent. And, to be honest, I love being able to get the information I care about from a niche place like the cafe vs having to pour through some rag like SI or SN - sifting through crap I don't care about like tennis, Olympics, etc all to get a one-page write up about fantasy football that's already yesterday's news.
