Best sports sections (not based on APSE judging)

    On another thread, a couple of people said Orlando is overrated. I wouldn't disagree.

    But on a more positive note: Any thought on the sections that are under-appreciated, and why? Or thoughts on sections that get APSE recognition and deserve it.

    For what it is, I love the NY Post. Talk about connecting with your readers.

    The Columbia State has a great college football gameday section.

    Was very impressed with the News-gazette - champaign, I believe - at APSE judging.

    There just aren't a lot of good ones anymore. Some don't even appear to be trying, including Rochester and Syracuse. They're both disgraceful.

    I really do love The State. The design is top notch, the writing is excellent and they seem to be doing a good job of utilizing the Web site. It's a newspaper that thinks big and isn't afraid to allow a writer time to work on a big project. Now, Bob Spear (columnist) and Jim McLaurin (preps, former NASCAR guy) just retired, so it'll be interesting to see what they do in the coming months.

    I'm curious why you believe the Post connects with its readers any more than other newspapers do. It seems like every time they raise the price above a quarter, they "connect" with a lot fewer of them. I'd argue that it's not a relationship based on connection but on whim.
