If only; they lost it more due to them basically lying out of their ass to Farmers about how many views they could get their ads.


Yeah, the ad mess was only hastened by this stuff...not caused by.

It's going to be honestly pretty funny to watch this car wreck.

Apparently he's been writing in support of the CTU during the strike this week in Chicago...and now he's essentially a scab at Deadspin.

How do you see what happened the last couple of days and not understand this was a really bad idea?

Wait, what exactly happened? Some freelancer was hired by deadspin to write pieces and then shamed for doing so?

Yes, he shared an article about the warriors as his first piece on Twitter and immediately got ratio'd into oblivion with replies calling him a scab.

1) G/O media is now tagging the articles someone is publishing as “Deadspin Staff” presumably to avoid people harassing the author
2) This article was written like someone who was told to write like a Deadspin writer would but doesn’t quite understand the essence of the former site
3) if you are going to criticize Derrick Rose, there are much better things to rip on him for than “owns a condo in trump tower” and “says he’s enjoying living in Detroit”

Nice try though

I forced a bot to read 10,000 deadspin articles and this was the result

Also: continuing to run a Deadspin-style blog without comments makes it seem especially absurd. Like, at least 75% of the content was clearly with commenter response in mind.

Why are there so many horsefeathering dorks who act like they want yet another sports-only commentary source they can complain about? There's horsefeathering zillions of them.

jamfan is some sort of AI experiment gone terribly wrong. There's no way that's a real person
