Jay Mariotti is probably the most polarizing man in the history of Chicago sports media and quite possibly the most hated in all of the national sports media. He’s like the Eminem of sports media- he’s had a feud with everyone. Mariotti has had a tiff with former Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen, his former employer the Chicago Sun-Times, King of all sports blogs Deadspin, and many others.
The Sun-Times move of partnering with new upstart website ChicagoSide has rekindled the war of words between Mariotti and the second city’s second newspaper.
The Sun-Times on Mondays will run two pages of ChicagoSide content. The website is run by two extremely connected individuals, one of which is former Wall Street Journal reporter Jonathan Eig. Mariotti contributes to ChicagoSide.
From Jim Romenesko’s website:
“The funny thing would be if the Sun-Times picks up a Mariotti column or two!” writes the person who tipped me off to the Sun-Times/ChicagoSide partnership.
Mariotti, who resign...
