I haven't followed the details of every DK hire and fire and I really don't care, so maybe some were not justified, but the claims here are ridiculous.

A single example. Coolong was awful on the Steelers beat--snotty, pretentious, immature and worst of all, a bad boring writer who couldn't make the leap from small time blogger to a writer with team credentials. He also insulted readers, had twitter meltdowns, wanted to fist fight people and probably never really quit his (truly awful) USA Today Wire/whatever job. So he got fired. Boo hoo.
Dopirak, his replacement after a replacement, started slowly and carefully but he's hitting his stride and has all the instincts of a real/worthwhile journalist--he says "I don't know" when he doesn't know and then he goes and finds out. He knows how to interview and he knows how to conduct himself like a professional.
So please stop with the fantasy about DK firing all the great ones. At least in one case, it just doesn't wash.
I don't worship DK but he's made some decent to good choices and the writing on his site is a lot better than elsewhere.
