    I freelanced a few games for them a few years back, and it was pretty clear that they operate on a shoestring, which to be fair isn't really any different from the vast majority of small papers. That's not really a criticism so much as an acknowledgement of reality. Now, I'm not claiming to have intimate knowledge of the pay structure in that shop. That said, be realistic. It's highly likely that this is an entry-level editor position, which means the salary isn't going to turn heads. If you're young and want to be a sports editor someday, this is a stepping stone. They know it. You should too.
