    It's a decent paper, just across the river from Philadelphia. I'm pretty sure they cover the Philly pro teams.
    Their coverage of South Jersey high school sports is solid.
    In terms of colleges, there's no major colleges in NJ near it, just a JUCO and a D-3.
    There's an independent league team in Camden.
    Parts of Cherry Hill are nice, others not so nice. Can't comment on the county as a whole though. You're about an hour from Atlantic City, 2+ hour drive from NYC, 30-40 minutes from Mercer County (Trenton) where you can catch a 70-80 minute train ride into the city.

    Not much of a D_B here since there's nothing on that post and it fell of the page in a hurry. I think we can continue on here.

    I would be curious just how much they do across the river. Not knowing the lay of the land all that well, what would this place do with Rutgers if it became a perennial FB power?

    They staff the Philly pro teams in the four majors, but don't staff the Philly college teams (as far as I know, but I could be wrong).

    With Rutgers -- can't say for certain, but I'm guessing they'd consider themselves too far south to staff and would use copy from another Gannett paper that staff Rutgers or just use wire copy.

    When being a short drive from Trenton is a major selling point, you know to stay away.

    It's a lot closer to Murder City, USA - Camden - than it is Trenton.
    Plus, for the train station I should have used Hamilton instead of Trenton.

    Why the knock on Trenton?
    It's Chambersburg section is widely known for good Italian food.
    DeLorenzo's Tomato Pies are the best around
    It's home of the Yankees AA farm team - get to see great talent on the way up and you never know when you'll catch a Yankee on a rehab assignment.

    I lived in Mercer County for 26 years. I'll be quite content if I never even pass through again.
