Now wait a minute. Their Pirates coverage was always insultingly bad, their Steelers coverage was a cluster F of mediocrity until Kaboly brought a tiny bit of substance to it.

The whole reason to pay for that site was the Pens coverage*. If anyone actually paid for the Pirates vendetta they were just an idiot, and the Steelers coverage was some of the worst in town. If they're slacking on Penguins now what is the use of that site? The top 2 guys there (DK and Yohe) are both Pens guys. If they can't do that right, shut it down.


*Or the 400 people who care about Gatjka and the Riverhounds.

Former DK Subscriber might just be in the locker room with the media, he's that spot on with his remarks.

Keep it up. We appreciate someone here who has a genuine understanding.

Here's an "out of town" opinion on the site. I pay less then $4 a month for fairly good coverage and to be honest, 80% of the "Morning Java" segments more than satisfy the cost.

The "out of town" comment was mentioned to show that here in Burbank...Pittsburgh content is hard to come by. I still go to the PG as well (my father worked there for over 30yrs) but for me, the price is a bargain.

I like the Pens and Steelers coverage. Kaboly is great. I didn't think his video segments would work, but he's my favorite...or at least a close second to Josh. Intersting to watch.

I find most of the crew pretty likeable and it keeps my Pittsburgh pride high. I even purchase some Sarris dark chocolate pretzels this year after watching one of their pieces. Delicious.

They could drop the Pirates coverage (and the rest) and I'd still pay.

The end game here for DK is selling the site to some kind of online sports media entity.

That's where he can make some money. Shutting it down without some kind of return would be disastrous financially.

So he's not in it for basic quality, he's trying to make it look appealing enough on the surface to attract a final payout.

You sure that's the end game? I mean, what company would buy that? It would have to be completely rebranded and something tells me a certain egotistical so-so columnist wouldn't like that.
