    Technically, it sounds like they couldn't reach a contract agreement. But since it's Loopy, a layoff sounds fine to me.

    Pretty much everyone over 50 in the department who would theoretically have the highest salaries

    Bloody hell.
    The NYDN has long been one of the country's best sports section. I'd argue its game coverage, how it handled big events, columns, enterprise and, especially, its investigative reporting -- all made it THE best sports section, especially when you consider the amount of teams in the area and the crazy deadlines.
    This is just devastating, for those let go and for the reader.

    In with the cheap bloggers who troll gossip Web sites all day, combing for scraps.

    Doesn't this look like wonderful source for news?

    How much money in total do you think they saved? Lupica had to be making at least 200.

    200? Had to be a hell of a lot more than that, didn't it?
