Hey, Blogger Kid: If you legitimately had the story, stand up for yourself. Don't worry about extending an olive branch and getting along with everybody. It's not going to happen anyway.

If you leaned on Biertempfel's info, then own up to that and resolve to do better.

This has always been a competitive business. I want to get a story before you do. If you steal my story and try to pass it off as your own, then I'm going to be angry and I'm going to tell you about it. Nothing wrong with that.

We are NOT all in this together when it comes to competing for stories. One of the problems with inexperienced people is they don't know how to cover a beat and don't know how to navigate the competitive nature of chasing stories.

If you had it first, stand up and say so. If you borrowed someone else's info, you deserve to have your butt handed to you.

So this kid has the story, but can't post it anywhere, yet he manages to do so conveniently just a couple of minutes after Biertempfel does?
He really expects us to believe that? If he's as "dedicated" as he claims, he'd be taking a bathroom break so that he can go post something short online.
Plus, he even admits to "accidentally" stealing Biertempfel's stuff earlier.
Seriously, this is the kind of people that Dejan has working for him. The inmates are running the asylum. Well, actually, from the top down, it's just a morass of craziness.

The reason the Trib Sports guys and DK are always at odds is because they are exactly the same - self-important, paranoid and so thin-skinned it is an embarrassment to the profession.

They deserve each other and Dejan is no different than any of the people, like Rossi, he is constantly crusading against.

A great example is Dejan the other night had another "DK SPORTS EXCLUSIVE" (a word he uses far too often and apparently does not understand what it means) he was advertising on Twitter -- which is funny because his "DK PITTSBURGH EXCLUSIVE" was from a post-game press conference that 20 other reporters were present for....

Then he got called out by some Canadian hockey writer and of course, had to lash out and bring up some nonsense from years ago as a means to discredit the person who had the audacity to call him on his BS.

And he is out there always ripping Biertempfel for stealing other people's stuff and making up sources -- which is exactly the same thing Biertempfel is accusing this kid of doing......

Again, when you exist in a world where you really believe you are both important and relevant, reality is a tough thing to deal with.

Dejan was a perfect Trib Guy and frankly he runs blog as if he is still taking marching orders from Ole Schmitty....

This was a great reply.
DK's lashing out was pretty sad and embarrassing. But these days DK has a ton of minions who will just defend him to the hilt. All hoping they'll get their pictures posted on twitter and DK 3 stars... pretty pathetic.

And I agree with one the other posts here... Zac's whiny reasoning was tough to take. Grow up guy. The world is a tough place....
