Super Bowl coverage

    What was your (the paper you work for, get or the major metropolitan daily) like these past few days?

    How did the staffing compare to in years past?

    I think the staffing for the metropolitan daily here -- that I used to work for and still write one non-sports story per week -- was three reporters, two columnists and national NFL reporter/columnist.

    Did you get any requests for more Super Bowl coverage? That could be unlikely because anyone with internet access and a cable/satellite/streaming subscription could get 24-hour-a-day coverage.

    Does Super Bowl coverage help your paper? I know a benefit of staffing a Super Bowl (or any championship event) is making/improving contacts that will have future benefits.

    What did you think of your outlet's Super Bowl coverage? Too much/not enough/just right?

    A. I’ve written some questionable heds over the years so I empathize with the in-the-trenches folks.

    B. Management didn’t directly throw the designer/editor under the bus, but they damn near came close. Was Mike Hiserman in the office that night? If he was, was he just walking around eating pizza and looking at a TV screen? Did the A1 desk run the hed by anyone in sports?

    C. In terms of outrageous headlines, that registers at a 3.

    I have to believe the key editors were in the office, on the case, for a Rams appearance in the Super Bowl.

    I thought it was a bold headline. Nice job, LA Times.

    They'll never top "Champagne with a twist of Lemon" anyway.

    Definitely agree. They scored 3 points in the Super Bowl. Dunno what everyone expected.
