We propose to create a blog based on the “external factors” of sports. By external, we are referring to the outside factors of the sports world that make the on field action “go.” This involves the financial, social, scientific, political, and other issues that orbit the sports world, but don’t get the “mainstream” coverage you generally find big outlets like ESPN talking about as much.
We believe that has plenty of merit in its positioning amongst other sports blogs on the web today. Generally speaking, you see blogs that give recaps, share opinions, and stay focused on one particular sport. We intend on going the complete opposite direction with our blog. We want to promote sports from all across the board, but take a look at unique aspects about the events, and the impact they have on society.
Our writers looks at this project as an opportunity to become better acclimated with the issues and stories you don’t see on the bottom line of ESPN. We want to keep our options open to all sorts of topics, and limit ourselves to nothing variating from the normal, everyday tabloid sport coverage you see in the everyday media.
