Thought the NFL Fan Club was dead? Didnt have any clue who was running the place with ravensfan gone?
No, the NFL Fan Club aint dead, it was just in hibernation during the offseason. It has been under the control of myself, Mac and Detroitfan -- not that we've done much. lqtm.
Anyway, as you see in the title of this blog, there's something in here about the outlook of the upcoming 2008-2009 NFL Season. This is something I came up with prior to the NFL Draft and Detroitfan agreed with vehemently.
The NFL pre-season begins on August 3rd, 2008 with the Indianapolis Colts facing off against the Washington Redskins at 8 PM ET on NBC. What we would like to do before the season begins is have a group-wide co-op looking ahead to the upcoming season. That meaning, we'd like a FanNation user who is a member of this group to represent a respective NFL team with a blog. The blogs would commence on the day of August 3rd, and conclude on September 3rd, one day before the NFL regular season kicks off with the Washington Redskins taking the field to fight the defending champs, New York Giants. There'd be one blog per-day, giving the NFL Fan Club some nice activity and fellow FanNation users something to look forward to daily whether at work or lounging around the house eating Cheetos.
The contents of that blog, you ask?
It would contain an overview of their 2007-2008 season, regular and if available, post season. And then outline their offseason moves and any major news that will effect their fresh start in 2008. And of course, a prediction of what they may do this year.
Format the blog any way you like, but at least have it in logical order, like:
- 2007-2008 Seasonal Overview
- Offseason Moves and News
- Outlook and Predictions for 2008-2009 season.
Note: Transition -- Allowing author to add their own creativity and writing skills to make the blog flow from section to section.
How Do I Sign Up?
Just comment. You know the 32-NFL teams, if you want to represent and write for a team comment in the comment section of this blog stating your name and the team you'd like to have.
Dont worry, these blogs dont need to be epic and send everyone into a state of awe. But it'd be nice that if anyone who wants to write puts effort and does their best to have a respectable piece of writing; I mean hell, it's your team you're writing about, show them some love by producing a solid post.
If you show up and the team you would have wanted to write about is already taken, and you dont feel like taking anyone else, go ahead and pick them in the comments anyway. Why? Because someone is bound to drop out, you'd be an insurance policy.
If you have any questsions, please feel free to fanmail me or Detroitfan. Predominately me because I'm making this blog without consulting him first. lqtm. If you've got any suggestions or ahem, criticisms, fanmail me or Detroitfan too. I'm sure there's a flaw to this system somewhere, so help a dude out.
And if you're wondering why the hell I posted this so early (it's June 16th, we wouldnt start until August 3rd): It never hurts to get things going early so we're perfectly set up when the time comes. I procrastinated many times during high school and found out the hard way with many F's on tests and projects. (still had over a 3.0 GPA. Boo-ya)
