If someone exponentially more qualified to do your job suddenly became a free agent, would you,
a) starting working on your resume
b) bear down and try to think of a single interesting idea
c) figure it’s pretty fucking bush league to kick the guy when he’s down, or
d) call attention to your competitor’s termination and further, suggest that he’s nuts.
If you’re the resident schmuck at Deadspin, you of course, picked “d”.
(if this guy is out of work, that just means he has plenty of time to track down people who are talking shit about him)
