    Ronalong is the best preps writer I know. (Of course I don't have time to read many others) 2underpar is one of the better columists around.

    He's not a dick... he works hard and more importantly, doesn't put his byline on AP copy. What else do you want from a Pistons' beat writer....

    McGinn is the best FB beat writer I've ever read.

    Brutally honest, tremendous insights, great quotes with guys going on the record, excellent research and analysis. Also writes a great weekly football column.

    If Dickie Dunn wrote it, it's got to be true.

    KYSportsWriter is the best beat writer. Ever.

    He gets beat by the competition all the time! :D
  8. I'll fifth ... or sixth ... or whatever it is McGinn. I never miss his gamers.
    With the resources afforded him, the Wisconsin State Journal's Jason Wilde does tremendous work on the Packers beat as well, but McGinn's stuff is superb.

    McGinn's game stories are exactly what all game stories should be... part analysis, part recap, part "what does it all mean."

    He also benefits by having another good beat guy in Tom Silverstein and a small army of notebook gatherers, soft feature writers and what not to take some of the busy work off his hands.
