Here's the back page of today's Daily News, the morning after the Yankees took part in a six-inning, totally informal, intrasquad "game," without actual human pitchers:
Up there is the front page of today's New York Daily News: a guy in an Eagles polo seemingly gloating over a crumpled, injured Victor Cruz on the ground. "PHILTHY," indeed. Of course, the photo captures only one frame. What do moving pictures show?
This is kind of a big deal. In an editorial published yesterday, The New York Daily News announced that the paper will no longer refer to the Washington football team as the "Redskins," and will no longer print the team's logo. This isn't just a decision from the editorial board, as was the case when the Washington…
According to the readers of the New York Daily News, these are the 15 (actually 17) most powerful people in New York sports:
Frank Isola started on the Knicks beat for the New York Daily News in the fall of 1996, when he was 29 years old. Now, at 46, he has been covering the team longer than anyone else.
Robinson Cano's stalled contract negotiations lead the back page of today's New York Daily News, but there's a reefer, up top: "FLIGHTMARE: Revis to Pats? It could happen." This means trouble.

Bloggers across the land (ahem) lay in wait, knives sharpened, for the next symbolically awful report out of Knicks camp. Sadly, New York's newspapers are beating us to it.
Perhaps we ought to wonder about the merits of a bombshell story when it begins "rumors are flying." But that's the less-than-solid underpinning of the big Daily News report, which owns both front and back covers this morning, that claims the Steinbrenner family could be looking to sell the Yankees.
Yesterday morning, after the Jets' interest in Tebow was made public but before any deals were made, these were some of the things written in the New York tabloid papers:
New York Daily News scribe Andy Martino has written a game story that speaks for every fan of the 2011 Mets. What it lacks in rhetorical fluency it makes up for in, uh, truth. This isn't an editing error, although it may look that way at first blush. The Mets have reached the summit of suck.
Happy Birthday, Brett Favre. Blow out your candles and settle in for the 10 a.m. Favre Update.
