Subject: DK's lies on Nova


DK reports that the Pirates haven't even made an offer. Nova's agent responds that DK's reporting simply isn't true. Now Nova signs. This is how he recaps:

"When I spoke with the man in late September, before a game in Milwaukee, he looked and sounded crestfallen. He knew his contract was expiring, and he knew he wanted to stay. But, as he told me that afternoon, he had yet to hear from the Pirates’ brass, and that bothered him.

"During the next 24 hours, both the brass and Nova’s agent, Greg Genske, rushed into damage-control mode by running to other outlets to insist they were engaged. After which, of course, nary a peep emerged from either side for months and months."

Must be nice to not have anyone to hold you accountable, DK.

The names and circumstances change, but the bottom line is always the same in the world of DK:

DK is always right.

When he was still with the P-G, he reported the Penguins had a secret 45-minute meeting to vote on a new captain to replace Crosby. It was widely denied by all involved. For a while, he argued the point with readers and insisted he was correct. Then he gave up and just declared the subject off limits. He never admitted he was wrong. That's DK. Infallible.

The "DK is always right" mantra is why I ended my subscription in the summer..I wouldnt read his drivel if I was given a free subscription.

DK has such a boner for the Pirates' administration. They messed him up by making the postseason three years in a row. Last season they had a backslide and he was ready to pounce again.

I read the article in question and was just laughing when I read the backtracking part. The only reason those sentences are in there is to try and justify how DK was actually right but things just changed.

DK just can't help but take shots at the competition to try and make his outfit look better. Between that and the constant, constant, CONSTANT name dropping of his staff writer's names in every article and promo, I'll be dropping his coverage as soon as my subscription is up.

Seriously DK we don't need to see you post "Audrey Snyder will be killing it on her coverage like she always does" on every tweet you send.

Go design another cash grab. Maybe get Starbucks to design you a $50 coffee mug/tumbler or something.

I got a good laugh out of the notion that they signed Nova because of the pressure that fans put on management during a Q &A at Piratesfest.

Whatever it takes to sell subscriptions and appease the Nutting is cheap crowd.

DK's fragile ego: a story in three stages.

Even though I don't follow the website's twitter handle and never interacted it with it, I got blocked for simply being critical of DK's lack of knowledge about baseball. It appears to have happened after he spent weeks at the Olympics ignoring the Pirates and then came back to Rivero's one bad appearance and began bashing Rivero and the Front Office. Myself and some local Pirates bloggers were having great fun at this expense. I can only presume that he actively searches for mentions of his name and blocks results that he doesn't like (other Twitter users have noticed this as well. The level of egomania necessary for that...)

I tweeted Dejan about why his website is blocking its paying customers. He immediately blocked me.

I called him out on this in the comments section of his website. I was placed in moderation Hell; my comments don't appear ever anymore.

(Note that the website handle appears to have unblocked me at some point. Maybe someone with sanity recognized that business shouldn't be in the business of limiting access to customers and potential customers.)

I would say if he's blocking your access to a service you paid for that'd be pretty darn illegal.

Explain to me the searching ones own name on twitter thing?

What you are saying is that you wish to disrespect a public figure on a public social media outlet without given that person a chance to respond?
In short,you would like to remain a completely anonymous nobody in perpetuity ?

DK (and Mark Madden) most certainly do search twitter for mentions of themselves even if it isn't @ them. Insecure much?

The DK ban hammer is fun though, I'm proud of it personally. I said something about him on twitter (Not @ him) he DMed me about it,I ignored his DM and got the block within 10 minutes. Sorry DK, I was driving a car, ya hack.
