About to stop covering rugby?

As we fall into the poor benighted slough of despond that is the championship it is highly likely that no major media outlets will be covering us?

I think the Post needs to issue a statement saying what their intentions are regarding the coverage of sport , it seems crazy if they are cutting it out /down as its the main reason many of us buy the thing .
If they are pulling out I suppose that will leave us reliant on Radio Bristol for news and we know how awful they are .
Its such a shame to see how a once great paper that was read by the majority of Bristolians not so long ago has ended up in its current state .

The post have been steadily retreating from major sports coverage starting with cricket a few years ago and now rugby. No reason to read it now as the news section is just trivia. The march of the internet is changing our news habits, not always for the good.

Depending on what Steves next move is, it would be great if he or some other of his ilk created a sport blog/website covering Sport in Bristol and the region. Not sure it would be financially viable early on but start as a hobby and grow from there?
Really going to miss his reporting and was pretty much the only reason I visited BP online which led me to other news articles which generates their ad revenue.

Any budding journalists out there that happen to be huge Bristol Rugby fans and want to go to every home and away game next season as well as cover other sports in Bristol?.......... thought not! eye rolling smiley

I buy 2 papers each day The Post and The i . They both have a report on yesterdays England v Barbarians match , it is the same article word for word in both papers .
This does not bode well for how our local paper intends to cover our sport now that Steve Cotton has moved on .
