Good news from Patch-land?

    For sports in my area, the local Patch's don't cover much. I'm stringing for another hyperlocal site that is going head-to-head with Patch.

    I've had one weekend editor from Patch covering a game in the several I've done thus far this year. The MSG Network and Verizon FIOS are broadcasting games I'm covering, but can't find Patch or the local papers reporters at most of those games.

    Patch isn't putting up a traditional gamer. It's more like an extended info box. Don't know if it works since traffic numbers are being kept under the vest.

    Sports really seems to be a low priority, though that also tends to vary depending on the local editor.
