Seahawks Insider dead?

by: Chris Sullivan

Frank Hughes, head writer at the Seahawks Insider blog over at the Tacoma News Tribune, announced this morning on the blog that he has accepted a buyout offer from the TNT and will no longer be working for them or covering the Seahawks. We don't know precisely what this will mean for the Seahawks Insider blog (Eric Williams! Eric Williams!), but we'll do our best to pick up their slack if there is any.

Good luck, Newspaper Man, and thanks for covering the Insider blog for two years. Hughes stepped into unfillable shoes, and never got much respect or slack from the fans, sometimes myself included, but he never quit trying to cover the Hawks and gave his all with some very good stories over the years. His direct quotation pieces following every game were some of the most helpful blog posts I've read over the last year or so, and will especially be missed.
