They shouldn't then have been doing contemporary stuff. Do proper analysis or whatever to make it a premium purchase. The Athletic is making the model work online.

Although saturation coverage might be hurting as well, after all how much more is there to say about one of 168 baseball games each team plays in a season after it's been on a 24/7 news channel in a loop for ages?

On top of which, I was in the States during the 2016 Olympics, and its coverage was basically Simone Biles, Simone Biles, Simone Biles, Usain Bolt, and Simone Biles. Ludicrously jingoistic and exclusionary. Even sports in which the US were doing well were ignored. No wonder Michael Johnson became a BBC pundit.
