    My New Site

    Howdy! I wanted to post this and get some insight on a new site I am working on. The premise basically is hyping (or hating) on major sports themes. It is centered around sports and fantasy. The premise is hating and hyping on any and everything (but we try to keep it sport-based).
    I know we have a ton of sports people on here, so this is my definite target audience. Please let me know if you have any suggestions, ideas, etc.
    Thank you in advance, and enjoy!

    Hard to hate on Brady for next season.

    If you haven't got any better vocabulary than "hypin" or "hatin" (let alone the fact that the site is obviously based upon it), then I'm not even going to bother looking.

    Valid. You may not be the demographic I am going to reach. Everyone has to find their niche, right?

    Logo needs work, hard to read, or get the gist of the site

    I don't know. I like the separation of columns between the hating and the hyping. I would agree on the logo and the colors being kind of not in sync with the spirit of the website. I would expect more contrast, but I do like the idea. I will ask this, how are you separating yourself from others who do the same thing?

    We realize the logo needs some work:) None of us actually have any formal background in graphics (or comp-sci for that matter).
    We look to branch out as we continue to fill more on standards. Everyone claims to be pretty top-shelf in fantasy sports. No matter who you meet. However, I have placed consistently in the top 5% of all ESPN standard scoring (major sport) fantasy leagues. The guys on the site will also be first to admit that I have placed/finished in the money in the Big 3 sports for the past 3 years. So my passion for sports is all-encompassing/obsessive.
    The initial spark came from our passion for fantasy sports. We are going to encourage our base to e-mail us for trade advice, rostering and waiver claims. We'll answer the questions in a timely fashion (and use said exchanges for features).
    I use to dabble as a featured sports columnist for The Daily. I also was an anchor for a live, call-in show while at school.
    So we'll be expanding to podcasts very "soon". It is clearly an infant at this point. However, I liked the idea of putting our spin on topical items. And I like that we're not being boxed in to one specific thing. I have the freedom to offer opinion and insight on any subject that trips my trigger.
    I really appreciate the input!
