The Sportswriter Is a Person You Love to Hate

August 16, 1986

Here's a suggestion for you, if we may. Circumstances, as well as your keen and wide-ranging reporting of events during the last 18 months, have created for us an entirely new hobby or spectator sport. We suggest that your section be renamed "The Sports & Dope Sheet" to bring it better into line with its contents.

We lately just realized that beyond the Page 1 headline the first things we look for and read in your section are what athletes have been doing off the field to themselves, their families or their teams via dope, alcohol or nervous breakdown.
