Any one know what's going on with that site right now? I unfollowed them a while ago because they had an incredibly condescending attitude toward fans, but now I just saw on Reddit it looks like it's a Seahawks site now???

I think all their writers for the site lost their jobs. Not sure on specifics, seemed like it was out of TSTs hands. Agree on its attitude towards fans. Whoever runs the Twitter account is not a marketing guy.

Sounds about right, and they are instantly the longest tenured Seahawks fans out there

Followed them on twitter for a while but never really read much of their stuff. Just unfollowed them when I saw their header was changed to Goff getting sacked by the Hawks.

Yeah they fired all their writers and new hires are Seahawks fans. I unfollowed. They lost like 1k in a day or so and more will likely follow.

It's trolling that went too far and ruined a decent avenue for Rams info.

SB Nation in general is just a giant poo-flinging endeavor.  Whitman and the others running the Seahawks sub for them are just enormous trolls.  And SBN in general is fairly indiscriminate about fanhood in doling out who is in charge/editors of the various subs so long as they're churning out gobs of content.  Sometimes, when it's a quality writer/analyst in general (like Kyle Posey who took over the Niners sub a year ago despite being a Chargers fan), that lack of discrimination is a good thing - or at least yields good results, but that's rare.

I know the real content power behind the Chargers sub (Richard Wade is alright - he and I have butted heads in the past, but we've mostly patched things up - but he was more a figurehead when he took over for Gennaro), Garrett Sisti and Jamie Hoyle, have packed up their stuff and moved on.

Somehow I get the feeling that there's pressure coming from the higher-ups at SBN in general to be more like Barstool Sports, which is just an utterly terrible idea to begin with.
