Oh, and John Sickels as discussed above.
I don't think you'll regret it, there's a lot of great stuff on there. A few baseball things I've enjoyed recently:You guys finally convinced me to subscribe.
It's a great article and it made me like the guy a lot, but as a general manager, Ben was a better professor.There is a stupendous article posted today in The Athletic about Ben Cherington and his semester teaching at Columbia in 2016. Makes me wonder if the Red Sox regret letting him leave. Probably not.
Why is it not flattering? If there was demand for Liga MX content, they would probably provide it. I would guess there isn't demand. Do you think it's some nefarious plot to ignore Mexican or Spanish soccer?The easy inference to make is not particularly flattering to an otherwise forward-thinking media platform.
I think it’s far more likely that racial prejudice within the Athletic is clouding their football coverage; over clear market demand for coverage for English lower division clubs with names likeWeird take, bro.
But are those viewers subscribing to the Atlantic? It being the most watched league in the United States is meaningless if those watchers are not reading The Atlantic. When you subscribe to The Atlantic, you can note what your favorite sports leagues and teams are. It's the first thing you do. The Atlantic has all that info, from 1000s of subscribers. It's fair to assume not many people put Liga as their favorite.I think it’s far more likely that racial prejudice within the Athletic is clouding their football coverage; over clear market demand for coverage for English lower division clubs with names like
King’s Lynn Club and Spennymoor Town FC.
It’s weird blind spot to have when Liga Mx is the most watched league in the United States - and it’s not close.
