It's a good question, Ed.  Thanks.  Given our League, I think all of us 
will be well served if we face forward and embrace the fundamental shift 
in the way we as a society consume written periodical content.  I don't 
hold it against the League (us) to attempt to sustain itself 
(ourselves).  I can only speak for myself, but once I got past being 
bound to a print magazine, and I started enjoying the way the (vastly 
enhanced) content is presented on the 'web, it gave me a new, different, 
and better outlook.  I reiterate I am only speaking for myself, but I 
wonder if what I am saying resonates?  Certainly contesters have been 
squirming about this exact thing ("reduced" coverage of contests) for so 
long, it sounds like a debate about incentive licensing :-)

I imagine we're all different about this and how much we like the 
physical magazine in our hands.  It is not an easy question.

What will really be telling is if all of a sudden FT8 contests get multiple page spreads.  Then the cycle will be complete.
