Sports Writers

‘In other sports, the persecution of some players, coaches or officials by the press not rarely offers a sad spectacle. With chess, the main problem is that the game is too esoteric by nature to satisfy the interest of the public at large . . .’


‘Sports writers in general have a very awkward relationship with the mental sports, which they feel have something creepy about them, which is why they tend to show a distinct preference for the less factual aspects of the matter.’

J.H. Donner
