Who does DK work for? The Pirates? Any sports team? Or does he work for his subscribers? The Fans?

His job is not to protect the teams, especially a known duplicitous one like the Pirates.
His job is to be the eyes, ears and voice of the fan. That's what the fans pays him for. If that means exposing and shaming people that run the team so be it.

Call it axe grinding, no.
His paid subscribers call it doing his job.

I am not a subscriber to his site so he definitely doesn't work for me. Of course his job is not to protect any team, but his job should be to report ethically and honestly. In a lot of cases, his work seems to be a reach that requires a leap of faith. I don't sense a lot of substance in his work, just his own opinion. I agree with others here that in this case he had no real facts but was trying to post a lead. It didn't work. I would think his paid subscribers would prefer more for their money.

The next time DK exposes or shames any front office member of the Steelers or Penguins for poor decisions will be the first time.

Agree with The Cheap Seats.

DK's Pirates vendetta has gone on for years, yet from what I saw not one DKer questioned Tomlin's field goal call in the 4th that local and even national media scoffed at. His agenda is obvious.

Really? There plenty of times he's dragged the Penguins over the coals.

Let's all salute the DK shills
Who think their hero is king of the hills
His staffer turnover is not a big deal
To dare disrespect him is wrong and unreal!

But if DK's Blog's something no one can dare slay
Why is he so touchy about what folks say?
If it's strong and impregnable, it should be pure
Yet the thin skinned responses seem way insecure!

If he works for the fans, then why did he remove his reporting?

Should have left it in, and added the denial. In his "takes" column today he said he removed it out of respect to Sofield.

So then does he work for Sofield? Please explain this rationale.

He protects anyone not associated with the Pirates.

A few weeks before Jamie Dixon left Pitt, he write a column praising everything from him being a great bench coach to top notch recruiting and got really defensive when a few posters called him out for saying Dixon was a great recruiter.

Fast forward 2 weeks later and his column about Dixon's departure said it was time and criticized his recruiting. Just awful.
