St. Louis Post Despicable - Nothing about Vandy Game


Recommended Posts

I know TT had an article online before I went to bed. Which I think was around midnight. What does all this complaining about the Post do? Is it just blowing off steam? If this team had had decades of success instead of just a few years here and there, we'd have more fans and get more coverage. Simple as that.

There was a link to the game article on the main page near the top with the main articles this morning. It had a "new" tag that made it stand out. However, doesn't look like it's there anymore, and it's not listed under sports on the main page. So I guess they quickly make you dig for it.

Look, there was an article - for those of you who only read the on line version it sounds like the posting can be delayed - before getting all upset at least wait until the morning to make sure there was nothing hinky going on. I complain about the Post as much as anyone but I try to at least be objective by giving them the benefit of the doubt when appropriate.

We had a saying among the deckhands: Never attribute to malice anything that can be explained by simple stupidity.

If the lack of basic beat-writing assignments was ten pounds of merde in a five-pound bag, maintenance of the online site is the floor of the elephant pen being stuffed into a five-pound bag.

PS There are, in fact, currently two TT game stories up on the site right now. Plus, a little inside trick for those who don't know it: You can always get to the SLU page via stltoday.com/slu

(Edit: Oddly enough, the hotlink above doesn't work, but it does work if you type it directly into your browser. Another example of malice v. stupidity.)

There was a fine, big article about the game - is there more than one print edition? Mine's delivered around 6am or so.

That link doesn't work because you have a space after 'slu'; stltoday.com/slu

We usually get the **** addition in the city. I know there is an edition of the paper that actually has the words "Final Edition".

The bulk of the article was page 7 right hand side with box score. I believe the lead in couple of paragraphs were

on the front page right and bottom-but from memory only. At my age attributions to a photographic memory are hardly worth the effort.

don't read the paper cover to cover; it seems those who read it online have trouble going back to point out something-I usually just hand the paper over to my wife and point to the places on the sportspage worth noting. She devours the rest of the paper-neither of us looks at the adverts anymore.

Downtown residents would get "Final Edition" since it probably gets put to bed and printed somewhere in the 1:30-2:30 am hour. First ed probably at 11:30 or midnight and then printed, hauled into trucks and sent to the furthest reaches of the circulation area. Some first ed papers might not have all the scores, especially if a game goes late or the team is on the west coast.
