What is up with the SJ Mercury's Coverage of the SF Giants?

Original post made by Palo Parent, Greenmeadow, on Oct 3, 2013

I realize that this year's Giants are not in contention but the cover page of the sports section has zero coverage of the Giants?! I mean come on, they won the World Series two times in the last three years! You have to go to page 3-4-5 to find anything on them let alone a picture. This has been going on for some time not just in the last few months. The front page is A's this, 49ers & Raiders that. If it was an Oakland vs. SF thing it sure doesn't show up in the coverage between the 49ers and the Raiders?

Any thoughts?
