    Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

    just kidding...wish it was Solomon leaving though. He's pretty much a troll who gets paid to write articles in a major newspaper.

    Although his articles were crap and very vague, he seemed like the only writer at Chron that had the inside scoop about the Rockets. (Feigan is a better writer but doesn't seem to have the ear of Morey like Dick did).

    He gets a pay raise so more power to him.

    Richard Justice is Finally Leaving

    That blight upon Houston journalism is leaving the Chronicle for a job with MLB.com. I won't miss him.

    At least he gets a hefty pay raise.

    Good for him.

    He was the only Chron writer I read most of the time. I liked his articles on the Rockets... Everything else was meh.

    This is true. Justice has more inside sources and access than any other writer at the Chronicle, and it isn't even close. His articles didn't always reflect it, but his inside information is as good as it gets. It's a major loss for the Chron.

    Richard's first love is baseball, so I'm sure he's excited by getting to focus even more on MLB. But as a Texans/Rockets fan first, it's definitely a loss in terms of scoops.

    So who replaces him? Or will the paper claim "money issues" mean they cannot add new staff?

    Wait...They should hire Clutch or BimaThug....

    While I hated his articles, his inside scoop on the Texans and Rockets will be a major loss to the Chron.

    He's alot better than McClain though, which isn't saying much.

    Like I said in the other thread.

    Good Riddance. Justice has been sucking up to Selig for so long, he might as well make it official and get paid for it.
