    Anybody got a ballpark on what they'd pay? 75-80k out of the question?

    From what I've been told, you'd be lucky if you got 60K.

    Don't know about lucky on $60K, but no way you'd get $75K-$80K.

    I heard the guy who's leaving was already getting close to 70k? Who are they hoping to get? There are a bunch of sports jobs out there and I'm sure the pay is better in Chicago and Miami.

    It has to be better pay because of the cost of living.

    Close to $70K, in San Diego, CA, at a place with a reputation of sending its designers to the biggest gigs in the country and the guy is going back to Fort Worth after staying only six months? What's wrong with this picture?

    Fort Worth, while unfortunately located in Texas, has a better newspaper with a larger sports staff in a place with more sports to cover, and you get to compete against The Dallas Morning News.

    And you can live in a mansion for the cost of a cardboard box in San Diego.

    While incredibly obvious, this made me laugh loudly. Good job, Crapper.
