    Hiring scam artists can't bode well for Hoppes.

    That is a great read.

    Even if it's not completely correct, they've effectively torpedoed her at ESPN.com. Her future mailbags could be a lot of fun.

    They won't be at ESPN.com. They just Hall and Oates'ed her. She's gone.

    And before Hoppes could even have a bobblehead of her made for his office. Such a shame.

    Since there's an opening, maybe Hoppes could lurk here and find a new columnist.

    I think freqposter could be a hell of a Grantland contributor.

    As for the other, that's a hell of a story by Deadspin. [/phoneexplodes]

    Couple of things:

    --"Matt" is a farking idiot.
    --This shows the paradox of the Internet: it reveals all and hides all.

    I only wish Deadspin would spend that kind of exhaustive research and reporting on something consequential.
