Sacramento Bee Layoffs Hit the Sports Page: McNeal, Howard-Cooper Gone

Those layoffs at the Sacramento Bee we've been hearing about hit the sports page. Cosmo Garvin of the Sacramento News & Review reports that Marty McNeal and Scott Howard-Cooper have been handed pink slips.

No matter what you think of McNeal (I can guess, and I probably feel similarly) or Scoop, it's a crushing blow to Sacramento sports fans. These guys provided access and analysis. Few know the local hoops scene like Marty. Few know the league like Scoop. We had them here in Sacramento, covering our Kings. Now, the Kings-o-sphere is smaller and worse of.

Bad, bad news.
