Apparently CNET shoulders a lot of the blame for what might turn out to be the fall of a great gaming site.
From the article: "The general feel from the forums and "what the GS staff allude to but don't say," was that Cnet dropped the hammer on them. GS itself had nothing to do with it, as Jeff had been a well liked and valuable member of their team for years. I gotta agree with that, as he has been one of the most familiar faces on the site since I started going to GS years ago.
The impression I got was that Cnet dug them a nice deep hole and then told the GS staff to dig up!"
