    Par for the course, as just about everything at the NYDN is weird these days.

    The dude's a joke. He put e-sports on the back page and acted like the NYDN had taken some great leap forward. No one who's reading a print edition gives a flying fuck about e-sports. Heck, no one who's reading the NYDN in any format gives a fuck about e-sports.

    Toucher seemed to have no issues making excuses for Manish the entire interview.

    I don't think anyone in that interview came across very well.

    I'm surprised that a beat writer for the Jets getting his credentials revoked and the paper hiding the fact for months isn't a bigger story.

    Mehta always struck me as someone whose opinions outran his actual knowledge. His writing was always so personal and I can't remember anything he wrote about stuff on the field.

    There are two sports media writers in New York (neither of whom works for the Daily News), but they haven't gone near this story.

    They're obsessed with sports talk radio ratings, but this ... not so much.

    Is the NYDN newsroom still located in the classic building on 42nd? It's not clear from what I've seen.
