C'mon, that's 100% an on-brand Deadspin headline. I should know, I read it constantly right until it shut down.

It is and I am very excited to read it.

Someone mentioned Dom and I just noticed Laura Wagner isn't on there either. She's at Vice now.

I think anyone who got a permanent gig after deadspin rather than just freelancing is probably staying put, at least until this thing gets more establishe

Subscribed the hell out of Defector. This is the sole piece of good news 2020 has brought me.

And I am taken to a place
Where your crystal minds and magenta feelings
Take up shelter in the base of my spine
Sweet like a chica cherry cola

Iíve never plugged my credit card info into a website so fast

Who cares if there are no American sports? Deadspin had phenomenal articles about tennis, cricket, distance running, kite surfing, lovely New Jersey Boardwalk t-shirts. Iím just excited to read articles from my favorite writers again.

Deadspin is definitely the sports website that needs sports the least but people seem dead set on attempting to have them anyway so there should be plenty to write about both in terms of game and in how badly leagues are loving this up.

I don't think that group of people will have any issues coming up with things to write about regardless of what happens with sports in the near term. I'm about as casual of a sports fan as there is and I visited Deadspin (and then UTSB) several times per day.

Royalty is a continuous shitposting motion.

That's probably somewhere around $800k between the 69 and 99 dollar options. I'm hoping that the site can pay decent salaries to the employee owners and survive.

I wonder if the Reader tier will allow you to star comments. I won't necessarily comment much but I do enjoy bestowing good comments with a star.

Discourse Blog is good but selfishly wish they would do more blogs, even if itís just about the goofy stuff since you only get one a day usually. really hope Defector will be able to fill the gigantic blog-shaped hole in my life
