Hi everyone. I'll do my best to keep this quick.
First off, I apologize to readers Sir Ingenious, jcolt77, LuckSCl1, and anyone else who commented in Evan's goodbye FanPost. In deleting his FanPost, the comments were deleted too. Many of the comments in there were constructive, thoughtful, and well-written. I'm sorry they were scrubbed.
Second, as you apparently now know, Evan doesn't write here anymore. He still writes within the SB Nation universe, and he does a great job. Contrary to what was written, nobody at Stampede Blue gets 'fired." We (which is myself, Matt, and the other writers here) like Evan and his writing. We just felt he was more focused on writing about other sports, and, since he hadn't written an article for Stampede Blue since just after the draft, that he should focus on his other writing. "Firing" implies that I told someone "YOU'RE FIRED," or that I didn't think their work was up to snuff. Not true. Evan's work was great.
In general, it's the type of thing that shouldn't be aired out in FanPosts or in comments. Trust me, I have lots of issues with other writers and editors within SB Nation. However, I always tell our writers here to PLEASE not air your laundry here or at another site. I used to do that many, many years ago, and it never accomplished anything.
I'm sorry it got posted (though I'm sure a few people got a kick out of what was said), and I'm sorry that the comments were deleted.
We thank Evan for the great stuff he wrote and we encourage all of you to follow his Twitter account and keep up with his writing.
Oh, and speaking of firing, Ryan Grigson. HE should be fired. He sucks. I hate him. I also hate ponies, rainbows, flowers, and craft beer.
As always, thank you for reading, commenting, and being Colts fans.
