A terrible excuse of a paper. Surely after one 'there is a bus on the moon' story the joke was over. It is a good sign that there are not enough people to buy it and keep it going. Most papers have lost readers because the internet brings up to date news as it happens. The Sport must have lost readers because the internet brings up to date porn, probably as it happens! The Star will probably benefit by getting the few hundred Sport readers left without their daily dose of shite.

I thought Sullivan sold up a few years ago?

Hopefully another of his former businesses will go bust pretty soon...

Funniest headline had to be the "Shoots you Sir" when gianni versace was killed.

While I'd normally be sad for 120 people put on the dole, if you work for that lot you get what you deserve.

The titles are owned by Sport Media Group which is 9.9% owned by Sullivan who lent it 1.68 million two years ago.

At the Sunday Sports height, it was selling 420,000 copies, The Daily version 240,000.

Hell of a lot of morons out there.

There's always the Sun, Star and Daily Mail left if they want to carry on reading at the same level.

Sums up my feelings on the matter. Whilst normally taking the view principles don't pay bills, even I have boundaries that I won't cross.
