Deadspin, the once-popular and frequently viral sports-based website is essentially dead in the water. The staff is gone, some upper management has fled, and while it is still accessible there has been no new content on the site for a week.
After the bulk of the staff had quit in a matter of days following an edict handed down by some of the new bosses there was all manner of contemplation over whether the site can ever return. Well, the hopes of the editors and writers being lured back fade with each passing day — and with each new job that is landed by those former workers.
Samer Kalaf is one of those prodigals and he has just begun work with his new outlet, The Outline. Here he displays a couple of the traits that were a Deadspin trademark: Gutteral snark (as seen in the headline) and trashing its competitor, Barstool Sports.
