Being my first blog post, I think it’s fair to introduce what the blog will be about and the type of content you can expect.
I had the idea to create this site because like a lot of other people, I was tired with the usual content ESPN puts out and wanted not just new material or shows, but something more raw and entertaining. “Pardon The Interruption” and “First Take” are shows that have been airing for about a million years and it’s the usual “hot take” debate or boring interviews with athletes that are look bored themselves.
I wanted something more edgy and something timeless instead of the pre-game show, the post-game show, and the next game’s prediction.
The problem gets even worse because with the millions or dollars ESPN is losing and people around the world making new, modern content, ESPN is desperately playing “catch up” and trying to do what everyone else is. The only issue is they suck at it and is “cringe-worthy” or awkward. But you can’t blame the on-air talent, they did a job well for a while (million years) and just don’t know how to innovate and adapt to what you want today.
MY solution isn’t just writing content for you and you reading, watching, and listening to my ideas or opinions. My solution is YOU because YOU know exactly what you want to talk about and have listened to others for years. Why have me do all the talking when everyone has the power of the internet at their fingertips. I don’t want to force anything or write boring content. YOU know what you want, so go ahead…talk about it!
My solution comes from collaboration and a sharing of ideas that you, the fans, want to talk about. Football may be the most popular sport in America, however, I realize that others are die-hard hockey fans. Rather than catering to the majority (like ESPN), I chose to cater to…well…everyone. I allow you to have a platform and voice to talk about what you want. The hockey fans can skip through all the football talk and join a thread to talk about the Stanley Cup. Heck, even the cheese rollers in England can discuss their reaction to the latest cheese rolling event.
I will still be posting my ideas on the blog page, but the site comes to life with collaboration on your part.
I hope your onboard with my idea and I made this site because I am a sports fan like you that wants more than boring interviews and reductant shows with “I’m right, your’e wrong” opinions.
So comment or email me if you have any suggestions or what you want to include in the site.
What else do you want me to include?
Do you think my idea will revolutionize sports media or is complete trash?
