Sun-Times Chicago Sky Coverage

Recommended Posts

For some weird reason, the Chicago Sun-Times has started regular coverage fo the Chicago Sky WNBA team despite the fact that the Sky has only been in the playoffs four times in its 13-year existence and went deep into those playoffs only once.

Meanwhile, the same newspaper has failed to cover the Windy City Bulls despite that team's making the playoffs this year and it has failed to cover the Chicago Wolves despite that team's outstanding season thus far.  The paper has also failed to cover the Chicago Fire MLS team or the Chicago Mustangs indoor soccer team.  It has also failed to adequately cover the minor league baseball teams in the Chicago area or the indoor football teams around her, not to mention the Chicago Steel junior hockey team.

Why is the historically lackluster Sky team getting regular coverage while all these other teams don't get anything?

Probably because the Sky are a (to use baseball terms) a major league team and all the others with the exception of the Fire are minor league teams.

I don't know about the print version of the paper, but they have a bunch of stories on the Fire on their website.

But I don't know that there's a whole lot of interest in MLS in the city compared to the 4 major sports.

Wait, you are upset because the WNBA team is getting coverage?  The outrage machine has officially jumped the shark.  Find a new hobby man.

Honestly, the amount of coverage any team gets by a newspaper is almost irrelevant as the newspaper industry is slowing dying off. If you want coverage on a specific team, you can find it online.

I think the last time I actually looked at a physical copy of our local Rockford newspaper, it was maybe 4 or 6 pages total. Front page, local news, world news, weather, sports, comics. Maybe a page devoted to each.

20 years ago it was easily double that.

Ya, there's no way you aren't a troll.

Speaking as someone that has interest in the G-League and sees it as a viable tool moving forward for the NBA (shout out to Arci), you put way too much stock in the Windy City Bulls making the playoffs.
