Something in the water?
Heh, it's pretty obvious Madden only read the headline, and not the article itself. The article itself never claimed that things would be better if they hadn't (and pretty much said that the Cups won made it worth it, anyway). I mean, it's a meaningless puff-piece, but what else is there to write about with regards to hockey in late July? It was just for fun, and clearly intended as such.
Nah that article was actually trash.
Oh it was. This is what happens when there's nothing to write and someone is expected to write something anyway.
It was just a fun thought exercise. I don't get the criticism.
seriously, its like no one ever read anything in a sports offseason before about that said sport
I thought it was a great, original idea presented with the same silly writing style that it deserved. Sean's A+.
And DK's a doof. One of the smarter things I did was turning him down for a job.
What job did you turn him down for?
Because "moron" is what advances you in a social media marketing environment. Guys like Molinari or JBomb who are, you know, competent get lost in all the idiotic shouting, unfortunately.
One of the “B” variety...
Wait, when does DK not look really paranoid and unstable?
Know thy audience is the cardinal rule of media.
When you go 15 years into the past, to a happier halcyon time when we were debating the merits of Rico Fata versus Konstantin Koltsov.
Any MIKE VUKOVCAN fans out there? (Funny thing about this is Alan Saunders works for his site)
The sheer number of Slavic surnames in anything Pittsburgh never ceases to amaze me. I love it.
He offered me a position that was kind of a jack of all trades. Would be working with video editing, pod casts, writing, across the board stuff (as he says in the DMs, "EVERYTHING!") and it was really enticing. And then I started asking questions:
What's the salary? "40 range"
Is this salary of 1099? "We're 1099 right now but long story short we have a plan in place to be salaried for everyone by years end."
Will there be moving expenses? "No."
What about benefits? "Nothing as of yet but it's coming."
I'd just started a job that was full time here in town that I enjoyed and something felt uncomfortable about his replies so I said no but that I appreciated the offer. Never heard back. Two weeks later Yohe leaves and the stories of him being horrible to work for start coming out. And yes, I still have all of the receipts to prove this happened.
AKA a threesome with him and his wife. Allegedly.
Yiiiiiiiiiiiiikes. Glad you didn't take that dude. You'd be doing the job of at least 3 people for barely an average salary of one.
I wonder if “40 range” is what he offers his regular staff writers or whatever.
I’m sure more for the more experienced/bigger name people, but still, while it’s something, the amount of work, dealing with DK, no benefits... yeah probably a good call turning that one down.
I'd just started a full time job in the same field where I live with benefits and access to a lot of extra work. This had too many red flags of uncertainty and the thought of "If it doesn't work out I've moved my wife from her family for three months of a job I ended up drowning in." I had no doubt I could do aspects of the job but there was nothing defined in terms of role and pay? Pass. Especially when the vaguely defined pay scale was probably a pay cut on what my new job was paying (minus the ability to make the $12k extra I made in freelance).
Either way, with what came out afterward and based on those conversations it was really, very good I said no.
Definitely made great decision then.
WOAH, look out paying you like 17 dollars an hour and having to pay a shitload of out of pocket taxes on that. LOL What a POS.
This isn’t unique to Pittsburgh, but Pittsburgh is definitely one of the most ridiculous sports media towns in the country.
Because literally 0 of them have any importance but all of them act like babies anytime they get called out?
Separate names with a comma.
