    The longer this goes, the more they seem like everyone else, including the Maven bros.

    The emphasis on subscriptions is not new and has been a core part of The Athletic since Day 1. Some reporters chase clicks; Athletic reporters chase subscriptions. I'm not sure that's a bad thing.

    The story quota has gone up a bit, which has caused some discontent among reporters and has resulted in some "cheaper" posts, but I don't think the majority of readers have noticed. (And some may even prefer some shorter, more digestible stories). Of course the more "home runs" you hit, the less they'll be worried about your story count or anything else.

    Did not see that one coming. And she’s been getting I would presumed paid for multiple hits on the big Denver sports radio station. Has been in more than hip deep in the Broncos ownership disaster. I suspect the front office is happy she won’t be around anymore.

    Good move for her. Likely saw writing on the wall.
