Deadspin Undergoes A Drastic Redesign

No, you weren’t hung over when you went to Deadspin this morning.

The website rolled out a drastic redesign on Monday. So drastic that editor A.J. Daulerio wrote a how-to guide for the new look and feel.

For the folks who are left scratching their head at the redesign, Daulerio is asking that you remain patient:

“This is a huge undertaking and will eventually make the site better and more readable. Trust me. I know some of you will hate it and never come back to the home page, but give it some time. You may get used to it after a while. The thing is, this will be a better way to showcase our big stories (Insert your “dong” joke wherever, a-holes).

If you want to resist change, you can always view the dusty old “blog format” here – which gives you something that’s a lot like the way the old site looked. And of course you can also read Deadspin via your favorite RSS reader.”

I’ll stick with “the dusty old blog format” for now.
