    Love how they advertise a job and to apply on line and then when you get online there isn't an application slot for the job opening that was posted.

    Good paper. Sports editor is an awesome guy. Was all set to go there last winter when I suffered a devastating injury that took months to recover from and I couldn't in good conscious ask them to wait. Would apply now if it weren't for a certain family situation.

    Would encourage it for anyone with a couple of years or more experience in the business.

    Uhh, yeah, this job posting just vanished.

    It was up on JJobs this morning, now it's gone. Same with the corporate site that lists openings.

    In the words of Jay-Z, that sh** cray.
