    I don’t think the Mohegans really care all that much about attendance. The Sun give them 15 dates in their arena. I reckon half the tickets are comped or throw-ins. That’s based on no inside knowledge, mind you.

    Adding boxing. Going overseas. The Athletic is sure making the newspaper industry look silly. The Athletic is expanding all the time. The Athletic is hiring all the time. The Athletic is paying well and actually treating its writers humanely. None of this working 70 and getting paid for 40. They pick and choose stories and don't sweat the little s--t. What is going on here? Ultimately if things continue as they are, The Athletic will be the only sports outlet still standing along with ESPN. Newspapers, owned by these blood sucking hedge funds, continue to cut and turn into tiny rags with no ads. Gatehouse, Gannett, McClatchey, Digital First, all embarrassments and all allegedly losing money and constantly laying off people. The Athletic? A huge success. Please explain .... It's been a while now and The Athletic shows NO SIGNS of letting up. Newspapers show NO SIGNS of life (cept for a couple of the huge ones like NY Times).
