    That applies more to the S-T. With some exceptions, the desk props up many of the writers much of the time. Very few APSE writing winners, but the S-T manages to win the APSE triple crown.

    Touche. FWIW Danny Robbins is technically on the investigation team and hasn't been attached to the sports department for years.

    The Fort Worth paper is sending someone to the WC because there is serious interest in the US this year.
    The TV #'s back it up.

    Ding, ding, ding!!!

    Danny Robbins is great at what he does, but he writes maybe once a month for sports. Maybe. Day-to-day, the desk carries FW's sports section and has for years.

    They may be good, but I don't think you're giving credit to some of their writers. I've read their paper for awhile, and they've got some damn good talent, and some that's flying under the radar, too.

    No one has to be great, but if a paper is consistently winning APSE Top 10 awards, then there are really, really good people in high percentages spread throughout the department, from the regular freelancers to the top dog.

    I agree. I'm just referring to the last part of this last sentence up above. Seemed a little off base, IMO.

    I can't believe people are criticizing the DMN sports section. The section is the Yankees of sports section.

    The DMN has swept APSE for years. Papers have strived to be as thorough and progressive as them. The DMN, National and USA Today are responsible for improving agate presentation.

    Yes, the writers' wing. One writer each year is inducted. Goose was the guy in 2004.
