Why does it matter if the Beaver County Times sports' staff is entirely Beaver County natives or all from Timbuktu?

The only requirement should be whether they're competent at their jobs or not.

"Competent at their jobs?" That would be a first these days. No one in the news side fits that description. The one who did fit, JD Prose, was muzzled for stirring up the County political machine, which spans both parties.

Oh, they also have Entertainment Dude Scott Tady, who self-promotes himself so he seems like the hippest, coolest guy in Beaver County. Would you believe the hippest and coolest guy in one area of Beaver, PA?

I'm not sure anyone who references Don Adams in 2016 should be commenting on what is hip and cool.

What is dated about Don Adams? "Get Smart" still runs on various digital TV channels.

When 90$ of your staff-generated coverage is sports within the county, it's probably an advantage to have some knowledge of it. Not saying it's a requirement, but that can help. Those people from Timbuktu might not understand if a coach says this is his best player since Sean Gilbert.

I think most sports writers, even the younger ones, would know who a long-time NFL player is. And if they didn't, they can Google it before they write the story.

Institutional knowledge has some value, but any sports writer worth his/her salt is going to do a little bit of background research before & after they've accepted a new job.

Of course, John is now repeatedly on FB that people think he lost all his work and he's clarifying. Maybe had not posted as an FU against the Times to begin with...as we've seen through the years, there has to be drama with him. Always.
