How is it not a smart business move?
Most (if not all) papers have a lackluster coverage of hockey. let's say 90% of buyers don't care about hockey -> no paper covers hockey -> your paper decides to cover hockey without cutting down other sports -> you get the 10% alienated customers -> you possibly get ad space at the three arenas in the area -> sales go up as a result

smarter business move
