    Love both papers, but I've thought for a long time that the RMN would eventually fold. Denver isn't big enough for two papers.

    Serious question: Has a JOA ever had a happy ending?

    If they were going to blend those two papers into one, who would win the positional battles for the new combined paper? That is, would the sports columnists be Lincicome and Kiszla? Or Paige and Krieger? Who would be left standing on the NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL beats? And would the answers be the same if the question were, who should be left standing on those beats?

    If they took the best from each paper, they could compile one of the best staffs in the country.

    Likewise, Mizzou, if a start-up newspaper (as if there could be such a thing, ha ha ha!) hired the best bought-out and laid-off journalists in the job market, it would be one helluva newspaper.

    No question...
  8. Lincicome was my favorite columnist in his Chicago days. ... Since he got to Denver, he's done nothing but mail it in.

    Paige is unreadable.

    Both do their share of mailing it in these days. I'd still take Woody over Bernie right now though...

    I'd take Kiszla over any of them.

    Me too. Still reports his columns and knows his own strike zone well.

    I have a hunch the one-paper model would be less than the sum of its parts.

    Probably about 50 percent less. Everyone duplicating someone at the other place could be out, out, out.
