DK is not head and shoulders above Collier, Starkey, Zeise, Cook.

Maybe you like him better but those four are competent enough to keep my money in my pocket. I will argue that no one in this town holds a candle to Collier.

As a former subscriber, I do not miss the site at all. Between news updates in the car from The Fan, which would alert me to breaking news, and then the Trib and PG online versions, my sports appetite is satisfied and to be honest, my life is better without reading and participating in the DK comments section of every article.

The new guy Dustin is off to a bland start so far. Really bad timing for a change of beat writer because what I see from him so far is standard newspaper writeup type stuff. No real insight yet. it's not really his fault as it takes time to build relationships. But so far, the timing sucks because this has been one eventful offseason for the Steelers and DK 'z site has not been able to give it that extra attention.

Why do you think he ran off to the Olympics? The less he writes about the Steelers, the less chance of being exposed.

Big difference between covering college sports ( Univ Tenn) as compared to the NFL and the Steelers. If you listened to DK when he announced his hiring, it was like he was adding Peter King to the staff. But that is his schtick - he acted like Jason Mackey was head and shoulders better than Coolong and keep going back thru all the hires, that is what he does and his fandom just sucks it up.
