    Sucks to lose his job, but didn't he make a killing selling it himself?

    Ok, I had Deadspin’s back when it was shitting on Barstool by why dump all over The Big Lead? It’s always seemed like mostly decent people posting mostly decent stuff.

    Deadspin doesn’t seem to have elimited “unnecessariy assholes” when it turned over it’s new leaf.

    I could have told you who wrote it based on these quotes. She's one of those people who's making a name for herself by being an asshole. With any luck she'll be another proud member of Deadspin's "One Job and Done" Club.

    He sold it to an outlet called Fantasy Sports Ventures, which unloaded it a few years later to Gannett.

    Exactly. McIntire is a good dude. Something of a poser, but he's definitely not an asshole. Hopefully him and that crew land in good places. I like The Big Lead and read it daily. To say it's not relevant is inane.

    McIntyre used to get crucified on this board like no other.

    I've run into Jason a few times. Real nice guy.

    To be fair the story shits on Minute Media way more than the Big Lead. I think the writer's biggest issue with the former Big Lead was that it was boring.

    I'll still have their back when it comes to shitting on Barstool.

    Nice guy or not, he's another great example of someone who monetized other people's work.

    Cut and paste a link, then write a paragraph around it.
