Sara Civian is now TOTALLY ripping DK through veiled Twitter replies and how DK treats people. Long overdue...

The best is DK using a picture of himself from 20 years ago on the site.

Ha! Yeah, nothing subtle about that. I missed it or maybe she deleted it.

Matt G. is now the full-time Pens beat writer.

Will be interesting to see how this affects the new writer, Katie - would suspect she came into this job thinking she was the lead beat writer. She hasn't tweeted much since the announcement that Gatjka was taking over.

According to her post, Katie is covering tonight's game solo. FWIW.

And....Katie Brown is now gone and DK is bragging about firing her.

In typical DK fashion, he is stating how the temporary new hire is gold.

It's about time to start a DK "Deadpool." Who will be the next person to leave, be replaced, or fired???

Honestly, I didn't really care for Katie, or Sara Civian, who, had seemed to have been let go, brought back, and now let go recently yet again.

Jason Mackey, Josh Yohe, Seth Rorabaugh, Katie Brown, Sara Civian, Alan Saunders, Dustin Dopriak, Mark Kaboly, Dave DiCello, Jared Wickerman, Rob/Ron (guy he hired to be editor).......I'm sure I'm missing quite a few, but, DAMN, that is a crap load of turnover.

My subscription is up in August. There is no chance I am renewing. I find myself going there less and less, because the weekly features I like continue to get bumped off the schedule, and I don't really care for any of the writers.

DK has run his own venture into the ground, and it amazes me the blind sheep that follow him on his site and praise his every move as the right choice, kick the departed people as the walk out the door. Used to be a big DK fan.....but his true colors have come out.

Need to decide between paying for PG coverage, because I like Mackey's work, he's quite accessible via Twitter and his weekly chats......or trying out the Athletic.

Same here. Didn't ever feel like Katie Brown ever sunk her teeth into the coverage. I'm sure assigning the beat to Gajtka sounds good in theory, but he's been in delivering news. Yohe's stuff became dull and tired, but at least it was useful to the reader. Count me out of renewing as well.

More than anything, it just feels like DK and Matt don't have a good feel for this team, like they've really grasped just how much work Yohe did.

Katie is gone? This is bordering on comical.

I still check the site but not as frequently as before, and I find myself skimming the headlines rather than reading the articles. Exceptions here and there, but it's just not the same these days.

So I got some not-so-great health news yesterday: I have Type 2 Diabetes, which is the lesser version but still serious. It’ll involve a significant change in lifestyle, diet and all that. Noticed early enough that I don’t have to tI'm sharing this mostly so that anyone who suspects or has symptoms goes to get checked. I was checked about a year ago, showed signs, then stupidly decided I was too busy to get anything done. Don't do that. Visit: @AmDiabetesAssn 2/3ake insulin. Just need to be a lot smarter.
Obviously, this doesn't affect the site in any way. I need to slow down enough to have a semi-normal life, eat better, exercise, relax with kids, but the workload and the focus won't change at all.


Healing vibes to Dejan!

As long as he decides to not be as big as a house he will be fine.
