Was this a good idea of what to do with the sports section?

I'm a volunteer sportswriter for my campus paper, and earlier this week, the section editor told us that the managing editor has decided to eliminate the sports section. School games will still be covered, and our health and fitness columnist will keep her job, but all sports-related articles will be integrated into a new "culture and lifestyle" section, or the comments section if they're editorials. A couple of us met with the managing editor today, and she said that she didn't believe anyone reads the paper solely for the sports section; giving us our own section at the back of the paper would be some form of exclusion. As it stands, we get two pages per issue, and the arts and culture section gets eight. The ratio of arts writers to sportswriters is about 2 to 1; we want proportional representation. If you read the paper according to her new idea, would you like seeing sports articles scattered throughout "culture and lifestyle?" Why or why not?

Perhaps a happy medium can be reached. Instead of scattering the sports articles, cluster them together within the "culture and lifestyles" section. Could there be unspoken financial trimmings going on? Everyone is trying to skim off what they can.

I think the sports people want their sports all in one spot! I think she is going to get lots of comments- and they won't be good.
