    Just posted on Journalism Jobs:

    The Boston Herald, the authority of hard-hitting sports coverage and analysis in Boston, is seeking an experienced NFL reporter to cover the New England Patriots. Candidates should have at least five years of experience covering professional sports in a competitive market and should have enough NFL contacts to be able to impactfully deliver local and national stories, produce a weekly NFL notebook and blog on the newspaper's Web site. Please send resumes, clips and references to Sports Editor Hank Hryniewicz at hankh@bostonherald.com and Deputy Sports Editor Mark Murphy at mjmurphy@bostonherald.com. The Herald is an EOE.

    Let's see who takes this beat.

    Also for any aspiring sports guys (with a decent amount of experience), this is a pretty good beat.

    Herald hasn't had a non AP Patriots story in days (just looked now because of this thread). So maybe this isn't a false hope :rocker:

    Oh, if only I had least five years of experience covering professional sports in a competitive market and should have enough NFL contacts to be able to impactfully deliver local and national stories, produce a weekly NFL notebook and blog on the newspaper's Web site, then this job would be mine! :D

    "Re: Thomase Era Over!"


    Why are YOU so excited?

    You were the one promoting and defending him here for months.

    Re: Thomase Era Over!

    ... to get some actual dialogue going about the issue.

    All those "Thomase is a poo-poo head who eats donuts all day instead of checking his facts ..." type of comments made us all look like a bunch of whiney little girls. And a bunch of poo-poo heads. :D

    Re: Thomase Era Over!

    I want to know the circumstances. Something is up. Hopefully, BSMW will have something about this. My guess is that Tomase realized that things were stacked against him being able to do business as usual following the walk-through story fiasco. Tough time for a newcomer to come in and get acclimated. But good riddance to Tomase, who should've been fired (or had the balls to quit) months ago.

    If the Herald is a step up from the PoJo, Shalise Young would be perfect.

    Re: Thomase Era Over!

    That's what I was thinking - how do we know this isn't an advertisement to replace Felger?

    Re: Thomase Era Over!

    No, but they may be looking for someone to replace Felger & share the blog w/ Loserboy (since he has no team access).

    Re: Thomase Era Over!

    Hmmm...based on the new hire, I might have to reconsider my decision not to visit this rag's website.

    Let's see. Too early to speculate. :snob:

    I'm sure he'll land somewhere, if he indeed is gone. He'll be a star at the Martha's Vineyards Times.

    It's not.

    SMY is worthy of better jobs.
