Women vs. Men
Some criticism we receive from readers of our sports pages is that we regularly treat the men's NCAA basketball tourney with more prominence than the women's tourney. The point one reader made to me Tuesday morning was that we have not re-run the women's tourney bracket with the updated results but always re-run the men's tourney bracket with the updated results. He wants to know why that is. I agree with his criticism. Women sports still get inferior play in many sports pages. So do other so-called "minor" sports such as soccer. My followup procedure is to discuss the issue with our sports editors and hear from their point of view why we traditionally operate this way.
