    This must mean readers are rejecting Deadspin wholesale and the site has no future. That's what it means when people leave the New York Times, right?

    Good to see this two-way movement between digital sites and newspapers. Sites like Gawker, Deadspin and yes, even Bleacher Report, are really pretty good at what they do.

    Good for him. He helped me out for a class project once and a few questions turned into a 45-minute conversation. One of the nicest guys I've spoken to.

    Sports and fashion... Two of my favorite topics... I read him now and can't wait to see what he does covering fashion. God knows that world could use some shaking up. It kind of makes me want to subscribe or something...
     
  6. A Deadspin writer left for the Star-Ledger, which isn't exactly stable.

    NY Observer, WWD, Deadspin and New York Times. Pretty cool career. The Times should poach Craggs next and make him the next Lipsyte.

    But did the NY Times hire Koblin's girlfriend? [/ESPN joke]
