Mean Green a DR-C no show

Recommended Posts

After a historic 20 Point win last night over Rice, the DR-C sports page mentions the Mavericks, Derek Jester, Venus and the Braswell Girls BB.  I didn’t see Bret last night but I didn’t look for him either.  We had a good crowd and played well enough to be in a tie for first in CUSA yet nothing in today’s paper.

He was live tweeting the game, so he was following it in some capacity.

Second time in a couple of weeks. I mentioned it on Twitter and Facebook early this morning and sent an email directly to the paper. Brett was there...not his fault. This was obviously a conscious decision on the part of the paper...perhaps to "encourage" more folks to go on-line, but this is crap-ola! Even the Dallas Morning News put a small piece in the sports section about the win. So, don't want to here the "too late for publication" BS either. The game ended at the same approximate time our games have been ending for years...no OT either.

The publisher needs to hear...the editor needs to hear. Make it so people.

The La Tech win was no where to be seen on the DMN and any Tv. Very disappointing

I was disappointed the final shot didn't make the ESPN Top Ten.

Would this happen to Duke or Gonzaga or Kansas?  I doubt it.  Smells of Oklahoma State and SMU.

I watched highlights of the LaTech game on two local news channels. Channel 11 and I believe Channel 5.

Here's the situation:

 

We are not happy about it, but we don't have a choice.

Subscriptions to our website and e-edtion are actually cheaper than the printed paper.

 

If you are already a subscriber, you have access to our website and e-edition. 

We have subscription options that start at 99 cents a week.

Here's a link:

https://dentonrc.com/allaccess/

We're still here and don't plan on going anywhere. We were just forced to change the way our readers access our late sports content.

 

It used to be free until a couple months ago. Now I go to meangreensports.com and read their FREE content.

Same. I feel bad for Brett, but he can’t control what the DRC does. Sadly I fear he is just alone for the ride. The quick downward spiral of a ride it seems.

I went ahead and subscribed to the online DRC. It was like $2 for 17 years.

I prefer print over digital, although I don’t mind digital magazines. Maybe I’m nostalgic or getting old.. haha

They can just sell ad space around the content. gomeangreen.com does it and it doesn’t bother me. 
 

The better Brett or a replacement writer can write, the more hits DRC gets and more ad money they make.
