    As this story (http://www.denverpost.com/breakingnews/ci_19450333) says, about a dozen positions, including the editor, were cut in Colorado Springs. One cut in Sports, which has been trimmed several times in the past half-dozen years, was the beat writer for Colorado College hockey, a D-1 program that, with Air Force football is one of the Gazette's top covers.

    Happened two weeks ago. Still doesn't mean it was a good thing.

    The circulation of the Colorado Springs paper is about 80,000 daily. I don't think they cover the Denver pro teams anymore. Dare I ask how many people are left in sports?

    Classic explanation: The Gazettes' website story said the moves were all made to better connect with readers and to better use social media. Other than Thomas, no staff departures were mentioned.

    As far as I know they're still covering the Broncos. Pretty damn good beat writer too...

    I checked their Broncos tab on the web and saw a couple items by David Ramsey, who is listed as a columnist. Everything else I saw is AP.

    Glad Schwab wasn't cut. Don't know what sports content would look like down there without AFA coverage. Heart goes out to all who did.
