JF Media the company behind Golf Punk and Football Punk has folded, leaving behind unpaid contributors, unpaid staff and unhappy subscribers.

More details of the company’s shoddy behaviour can be read on the Sports Journalists Association site here. My favourite paragraph is the one that comes after the company’s bullish statements about expansion:

It appears to have made little difference to the fundamental problems facing the company, of failing to produce magazines and not generating enough advertising or other revenue to pay its contributors.

Producing magazines and generating revenue – they are right up there in the ‘required’ category aren’t they.
