I was surprised to hear on Friday that a "new" website named Defector was now live. Normally that would not cause me or anyone too much concern but it became clear right away that this site had some of the old Deadspin writers. I investigated a little further and discovered that it was all of the writers that resigned from Deadspin late October last year including Drew Magary.
My first thought was that there was no way that didn't happen 5 years ago at least (2020 sucks) but then I was delighted to have these guys back in my life. They have adopted a subscription model that is 80/year or 8/month but for me at least I was missing Deadspin so much that I signed up instantly.
