I am a bit alarmed at oppo becoming the refuge of commentators regarding Deadspin changes and other editorial moves. Remember, this site exists in the Kinja universe because the overlords feels it has a purpose. And it won’t exist very long if it’s purpose becomes the anti Kinja editorial blog in exile.
I actually agree with making sports writers write about sports because I generally found the non sports stuff in deadspin to be a waste of my time. Just remember that if you want this blog to exist, don’t hijack it just to promote your non motor enthusiast agenda.
