Agree with almost all of this. I subscribed, essentially, to read DK on the Steelers. I really liked Coolong as well, indeed I still read most of his stuff, but I worry that by the end of this season, the site will be so little of DK-Steelers that it wont be worth renewing.

I absolutely have no desire to read the Olympic columns. I'm sure it's a great little trip for him, getting to see Rio, but I'd be much happier if it were him at Latrobe giving me reports on what is going on with preseason.

Maybe this should be on a separate thread, but directed at y'all, especially you who goes by "REALLY?" above, If there was an alternative for good / critical Pgh sports coverage, I would like to know. Anyone? I am open! Let's hear it...(Ron Cook?!) Am I missing someone, because I would like to enjoy some good sports opinion scribble.

I think most of us agree that he is a good writer.

And, I don't really care that he is disliked, thin-skinned, prickly, whatever. (It does distract when he is so UBER defensive in comments!) But, I also don't care for Mick Jagger or Ben Roethlisberger either, but I can admire their work (and cheer them on, as long as I don't need to hug them). Is that what psychology calls "compartmentalization" ? I can't remember, but it sounds good.

I think the DK Kool-Aid drinkers, like their hero, are very sensitive to any criticism here and the implication is someone is "encouraging" defenders to come over here and plead his case since DK and friends appear to be so utterly insecure.

Some people are just uncritical. They're happy with anything and don't care how something is run. It's like those who say a mediocre newspaper is better than none. We're supposed to be lucky to have two mediocre papers. Some would say that. Same applies to DK and of course, to his ego.
