Since joining SB Nation and MHR I have visited almost every SB team site concerning football. You all should do it (if you're from the south, Y'allshdoit.)
I really think that (even being a medium market) we have five times the participation of fans around the country than any of the other team's sites.
I went to the Texan's site after our first game and made a comment on a post by some kid called (I think) texasmaniac (Ithink) I was kind, gave my point of view, and this kid was very excited that someone had 'made a comment' on his post. Two days later I go back....only one other comment...and it was to me--not this kid that had made the post. This kid's post was a very fine break-down of what happened during the game.
How many at this site have made a post and not got a response?
Everyone at this site needs to give GURU a hand! He has put together a site that everyone feels comfortable and anyone can contribute--as long as you are kind.
I went to Steelers got no response. I went to Miami, 'the Phins' (I think) and got a good response. We are right next to the 50th of the old AFL (something I think we should start gathering ideas about) and I got good answers--but it was only from one person.
As I bounced from team to team the main thing I noticed is that most SB sites are dominated by just one--two--maybe--three writers....and not many more of people that just comment.
This site is something special, I don't have cable but still laugh at ESPN (hmmm espn that looks better).
My hat (which I don't wear) still goes of for the staff of this site.
Guru, HT, Styg, Zappa (the 13-3 prophet), and mdierk.
You have created a site that other teams don't have.
Who needs espn?!
