    I don't mean to come off as supporting Bayless, but that sounds like a three-man douche-off.

    Wasn't John Koblin the one who froze up on CNN?

    Do they just get to talk about what's happened to First Take, or do they also get to discuss what has become of SI (Bleacher Report) and Deadspin (Dong Shot Central)?

    If you think Deadspin still is Dong Shot Central, you obviously haven't read it since Daulerio left.

    If anything, Deadspin could use more dong shots. I find a lot of the content to be inch-deep snark now. The biggest issue is Tommy Craggs so rarely writes.

    When A.J. Daulerio was in charge, Deadspin was producing unique content and avoiding the shit I could find elsewhere.

    A debate about the merits of First Take, a show that's basically watched by college kids and the unemployed. If you have the luxury of watching TV in the mornings, you don't HAVE to watch ESPN, unless you're Richard Dietsch and you're paid to do so.

    Is he hoping to show that the emperor has no clothes? Well, no shit; anyone who watches First Take deserves the spike in blood pressure.

    And yeah, Koblin is the one who painfully stumbled on CNN. Honestly felt bad for the guy, that was difficult to watch.
