    Here is your chance gang NYT Sports Editor Tom Jolly is taking reader questions:


    I fired off 2 for him:

    1- Tom - is your friend Newman really as self absorbed as he comes across?

    2 Why did you run Murray Chass out of your paper?

    This could be even better than Ask Hal, The Referee.

    At what point did you realize that Karen Crouse was a disaster on the Jet Beat?

    Y'know . . . somehow, I don't like your chances to crack into that little section of cyberspace, in this spot.

    Dear Mr Jolly--Where exactly IS your sports section??

    PS, I really liked your answer to the badminton question, I bet a lot of people were wondering about that.

    Dear Mr Jolly-- When did you decide to make the NY Times a green room for ESPN and Sports Illustrated, who swoop in for your 24-year-old discoveries after a year or two, rather than a destination paper for seasoned pros?

    Hasn't the market essentially dictated that, especially vis a vis the WWL?

    Not sure I understand your question.

    Isn't the WWL leader ideally-equipped ($$$$$) to outbid NYT for talent which suits their immediate needs?

    What does Mr. Scott Newman think of all this?

    Why didn't you cover my daughter's JV volleyball game?
