The Future of Sports: Social Media Style

If you're over the top sports fan and dialed into the sports blogosphere and sports talk radio you probably understand that there is a not so quiet movement against ESPN, affectionately referred to as the "Four Letter Network." The disdain is for their creation of news, self-serving tendencies in promoting sports news that happens to be liked to what they have contracts to air (Arena Football for example) and the frequent transgressions of their on air talent (too many to list). If you want to keep up on this and sports from a different lens I highly recommend Deadspin.

I saw a new sports oriented site that seeks to create a user driven sports site. The power social media moving into the sports realm. It will be interesting to track over time. To get things started they have Sean Salisbury, formerly of the "four letter" to bring his take to you 7 days a week.
