I used to be an avid post reader since i've been to school in new york, but since hockey has been back, i've realized why the daily news is really "the #1 sports in town."
Take for example, TODAY. You would think all local newspapers would be all over Messier night, and they all were, the daily news, newsday, bergen record, but did anybody open the post today?? They had it on the back cover, but then two pages inside. TWO! On an off day for sports, especially in the area with only the rangers and ignored long island playing calgary, the whole friggen sports section was an advertisement!
The daily news on the other hand was fantastic. They had a cover over the entire paper of messier holding the cup, and probably 8 pages of extensive coverage inside.
The NY Post is a joke and although i still read it from time to time over the news, it will never happen again. The daily news is equal to all sports and the NY Post might as well be an ESPN publication.
That's nothing they didn't have Richter's retirement night on the back page of the post nor did they have Leetch's trade on the back page. I believe one of those events had Torrie saying he'll stay or something and also how they hired a new bench coach. The Post is a disgrace.
