    Everybody wants to be a coach. They need to get a degree and apply for a job. Then when they get one they can stay up all night and away there families working to built a competive team. Then they can choose who will be the starting QB. :fight: :fight: :fight:

    Good job and good luck to Coach Jackson

    Some media is just like parents, some good ones and some....
    No link...the paper pulled this from their website yesterday after many complaint calls.

    In Louisville, there are multiple media outlets. But in a town the size of Pikeville, the only ones who lose out are the kids on the team if the coach decides to go that route.

    There are plenty of other outlets in Pike county for Pikeville to get their due.

    Thanks MTNfan.

    I believe in free speech and I would defend anyone's right to speak...but sometimes media must remember, "they should report the news, sports and not look to create it".

    Newspapers aren't the only source of news/sports.
    In the case of a multi-weekly paper, more times than not, it's not news ...it's history.

    Generally, these small-town newspapers will hire anyone who can throw a few sentences together, and who will work for minimum wage. Their publishers aren't much smarter, but they're the ones who make all the money. I don't know these kids, but would bet neither have families who spend advertising dollars at the News-Express. Although it would put a few more dollars in the publisher's pocket short term, the community should buy an ad urging readers to read the Williamson Daily or Big Sandy News. And what was the point? Obviously the quarterback situation was decided in the second half of the Paintsville game.

    That's all fine and dandy, but parents can't cut out copies of a TV or radio broadcast to put in a scrapbook.

    Nope, I believe it will be the newspaper that will lose revenue!
