Evan Grant going back to do what he should still be doing (almost)

    That's fantastic. Not only for Evan but for the DMN and the business in general. It's a good sign that he's being hired back. Seems like ESPNDallas is going to spur some actual competition.

    I'd feel better about his job security if he was going to ESPN Dallas.

    I think this is a good move. I think the DMN is realizing how far it went in the wrong direction and it's going back the other way, meaning better competition between DMN/FWST and especially the two papers against ESPNDallas.

    This link includes an interview with the DMN's publisher. In it, he says the paper is adding pages and generally trying to better itself.

    Yeah, and the DMN's pension is underfunded by $575 million. So there's that.

    And the DMN had to pay Grant more $ to leave his on-line gig at local D Magazine. So that's typical DMN: make a bad decision and then throw money at it to fix it.

    Online, ESPNDallas.com will kick DMN and FWST because both their web sites suck.

    Good for Evan, though.

    How does the FWST now respond to this move?

    I thought the war was over between the DMN and FWST. They were sharing Rangers, Stars and Mavs coverage.

    I guess, reading his blog, Evan will be mainly a columnist for the print edition while blogging Rangers next spring. So I suppose the FWST will just have to do more blogging.

    Giving up a seat in a lifeboat to get back on a crippled steam ship. Hope it works out for the writer, but he's choosing to again work for people who make really bad decisions.
