Subject: Even more turnover at the DK blog

Jason Mackey is the latest to leave the sinking ship that is dkops....moments after a DK tweet that attacked the trib's growth plan. You can't make it up!

Mackey leaving for a struggling paper speaks volumes that he feels more secure at the PG. DK saying the Steelers beat is challenging and not for everyone. 6 days from training camp and the beat writer leaves town. Wow

Seemed like an odd fit with him covering hockey with the Trib and going to DK to cover the Steelers.

Trying to find someone to cover the Steelers the week before training camp means he's going to have to scrape the bottom of the barrel.

I was surprised Mackey left the hockey beat to cover the Steelers. Seems as though he either missed covering the Pens or looked at the PG as a better opportunity.

The Steelers should be the prime position on this website and this is the second change in since last season. The mid-season change was not a good look last year and having an opening immediately before training camp, again, is not a good look. I hope a talented writer takes advantage of this opportunity.

Seriously, PG bungled big here. I don't care if bringing on Mackey created no more room in their hockey dept but Seth has been their best hockey news asset. Empty Netters is about the ONLY thing hockey related I read at PG.

I do agree that the Empty Netters blog was a must read. I hope that Seth doesn't get hired by DK though. I don't want to ever give DK my money so Seth will be missed.

So Seth lost his hockey blog AND his job at the PG? If so, what happened? It's not easy to dump a member of The Guild without a very good and well-documented reason(s).

This is a backward move for the Post-Gazette. Seth gets it when it comes to getting content to his audience and is probably the most progressive in that area at the PG (probably the Trib too). Not a smart decision, but I do hope the guy lands on his feet somewhere.

Seth is probably enough of a commodity in Pittsburgh to go the DK route and charge a small amount for his blog and make enough money to support himself. I'm not saying overextend himself like DK covering all kinds of crap, just stick to what he does best.

Care to add some context?
