If there's one noticeable thing about the reaction to ESPN ending Grantland, it's the way writers and media personnel across the Internet reacted as strongly as the site's fans.
What's clear is Grantland earned respect from the vast majority of people who work in media, presumably because of the largely non-cynical way the site approached its writing.
So it wasn't a shock when writers began to vent their frustrations after ESPN announced the sports and pop culture site would be no more.
And while some were sad, others decided to specifically direct their anger toward ESPN.
But few people feel worse than the Grantland staffers themselves.
