Your talking about expanding the entire sports section. And that costs money.

3 guys who don't care about hockey are upset because that an extra page of hockey coverage means there's only two pages of baseball coverage. But that other paper has three pages of baseball coverage. I'm a baseball fan who hates hockey and thinks Zherdev is a new male-enhancement drug. What paper am I buying?
