Author: What does that even mean?
Subject: DK Hires a Steelers Analyst?

Very confused. Does DK even produce original content anymore?

Does that mean he fired the guy from Tennessee already?

Nope, Dustin is beat reporter for Steelers. New analyst, Chris, is going to get into X's and O's and break down what is going on tactically.

Christopher Carter is from SBNation Behind the Steel Curtain, I think, just like Coolong was.

And now an editor? Where is the money coming from since hes losing sponsors? Perhaps he should try to pay current employees better and try and keep them happy and try to decrease his ridiculous turnover rate
Shouldnt a steelers beat writer be able to analyze? I sense another change coming..seems to be very little confidence in new guy already

Certain other long established Steelers sites are very good at this analysis too.

Would this be the same Steelers Depot that blocks anyone on Twitter that remotely disagrees with them or people who point out when you have wrong facts?

No, it's the Steelers Depot that steals the work from those with access and re-writes it. And since it illegally uses the word Steelers in its title, it has better search optimizers and thus better standing at the top of Google.
Not to be bitter.

Steelers Depot? I don't know anything about those unfounded accusations but SD is the best website for Steelers news, notes, nuggets and analysis anywhere. I applaud DK for what he is doing but he'll never, nor should he try to, compete with Steelers Depot. DK should focus on what he know best, baseball and hockey, and leave the football analysis to the experts at Steelers Depot.

DK's blog is WAY worse at baseball than they are football. The head writer is a soccer guy!

Experts at Steelers Depot? Experts at what? Stealing other's work?
C'mon. Rewriting other people's work does not make one an expert.

Steelers Depot will get a tweet -- often from a desperate reporter (looking for attention from SD's masses) who overhears another reporter's interview -- and have a story written before the guy who did the interview can get out of the locker room.
If you want to support that kind of thievery -- beyond the normal steal and not-credit type -- then it's only a matter of time until the last media that can afford to cover the team is the team itself.

Honest question: What do subscribers get from DK's site that they can't get elsewhere on the net? There are so many sports sites, so many Pittsburgh sports sites and discussion boards. There are sites specific to news and discussions each of the teams. They're mostly free, so why would anybody pay for DK content? It doesn't seem like the DK site is breaking stories. Besides, if he is, he'll put it on Twitter or talk about it on Madden's radio show. Why do I need to give him money?

I'm not a subscriber but frankly I don't see alot of really good Pittburgh sports websites.

DK's guys are credentialed beat vetetans so have good access to management, coaches and players the bloggers don't.
Messageboards all devolved to enclaves of group think echo chambers full of internet tough guys.

You get DK's ego. Isn't that worth paying a premium? And you get the connection to Mr. Obnoxious (Madden). To have the privilege of associating with such stellar people, doesn't that justify paying a few bucks?

Honest question: What do subscribers get from [The PG | The Trib] that they can't get elsewhere on the net?

They're mostly free, so why would anybody pay...

Just keep giving away the product; just keep laying off by the hundreds.

Noted the humor by Czar Chasm: thank you for the chuckle.
