    Don’t be fooled that newspapers are covering sides purely for the good of the clubs. Newspapers cover football because football sells their papers. It’s a two way thing. Both need each other but the newspapers can never see any wrong in their coverage and the damaging effect it can have on businesses. Equally, it could be argued that most papers don’t pay anything to cover their local sides but are provided with content and access to fill their papers so maybe the clubs should charge for that also?
