    Keeler laid off from DMR

    Per Murph and Andy. At least I think I heard that.

    "Fired" seems a bit innacurate. Sounds like a layoff but I guess in the end it is the same for him.

    Never wish this on anyone...

    I personally never like to hear of anyone losing their job.

    Re: Keeler Fired from DMR

    I'm not sure how to feel about this. Losing Keeler is a good thing, in that I don't have to read his poop anymore.

    However, it may be a sign that the Register's sports page is turning completely into AP and USA Today copy/paste snippets.

    Re: Keeler Fired from DMR

    I side with Murph and Andy on this - it's a mistake. Why would you let go of your most controversial (sports) columnist? He was always worth a few clicks from me, whether I agreed with him or not. That's a few less clicks from me now... Not doing much for their exposure... But maybe the "clicks" were the problem...

    This is how I see it.

    Re: Keeler Fired from DMR

    Was told yesterday that DMReg also has closed its Ames bureau location, and that was something learned entirely by accident. Sounds like it's becoming just "a paper in central Iowa."

    Actually fired is accurate. Layoff is the term that has become misused in society as it implies a possible future opportunity to return.

    Fired has become associated with disciplinary or performance terminations, which is technically not always the case.

    Re: Keeler Fired from DMR

    700 people getting laid off is a bad thing, also the demise of newspapers in this country is also a bad thing.

    Also, if they replace the entire sports page, will there be any local coverage anymore?

    Somewhat agree...now if the "Juice" and "Metromix" writers survive and this guy gets canned something is wrong.

    I think some are getting a little ahead of themselves. So far CPR has done a pretty good job for his first year. If we win 3 games this year will everyone feel the same way? I hope we go undefeated and CPR has a ton of job offers but I'd like to give him a few years at the helm before I decide how great of coach he is.
