Their real problems began when they lost a lawsuit and were assessed $140 MM in damages to Hulk Hogan, but they lost me years ago when they accused Pujols’ trainer of dealing steroids and later had to recant the accusations when it was learned they fingered the wrong guy. It was Albert’s photo splashed across all the news stories at the time. Oh, gee, Deadspin was really sorry for their mistake. Too bad Albert didn’t sue them then and put them out of business sooner.
How some people feel sorry for a place that built its reputation on irresponsible smear is beyond me.
