Reports of layoffs at Time, Inc. finally came to fruition as multiple SPORTS ILLUSTRATED writers found themselves marginalized or dismissed Friday, including bloggers and famed football writers alike.

Since news misery loves company on a Friday afternoon, NEWSDAY and the MINNEAPOLIS STAR-TRIBUNE also announced impending layoffs that will affects sports coverage from two of the best sports sections in the business.
