Posts Tagged ‘Sport Online’

Sport’s blogs, a tough tough arena in which to make your name on the internet.  And hey I’m doing it right now, well sort of anyway. 

I don’t class myself as a sport’s blogger or do I think I will ever be a successful one (as you will find in my grammar!).  But what I do want to blog about is how tough it is to rise through the pack of sport’s bloggers, all blogging about the same topics, games, teams and players.  There are thousands of posts about the same things, on very similar sites by very similar writers.

So how do you get noticed by the big guys?  We have started a discussion on our site in our Bloggers and Writers group, so feel free to have your say:

As a sport’s fan, where do you go for your sport’s news and opinion?  Do you stick to the big sites like ESPN or Bleachers Report?  Or do you follow some amateur bloggers that have great things to say?

Wouldn’t it be great to have one place on the internet where you could get all of that in one….

The Code Master reporting in on The Sportcodex Blog.

I just want to talk about the Wizards, yes the Washington Wizards, the team I picked as a Dark Horse to sneak into the playoffs at the start of the season. But that was before I knew John Wall was going to miss 8 weeks while recovering from a stress injury to his left kneecap.

The Wizards went 5-28 without Wall from the start of the season until early January. Since then the Wizards have gone 21-16! Thats a turnaround, this is just about MVP level criteria for carrying a team. His March statline reads, 21.8 Points per game, 8 Assists per game, 4.5 Rebounds per game (that’s with Nene & Okafor on the team) and 1.9 steals per game.

If only the season went for another month! In saying that though the Wizards are going to get another high pick and should be another piece to a hopeful future.

Check out Wall’s 47 Point Perfomance against the Memphis Grizzlies from yesterday.

Here is a piece from one of our Founder’s, The Code Ninja, he is a big fan of American Sport and a Sporting Wiki, so keep an eye out for his opinions!



A lot has happened in the NFL this offseason. We have seen multiple eras ended, including Ray Lewis and Ed Reed in Baltimore and Brian Urlacher in Chicago. Today, I will report on who I think has been a winner this offseason.



The Texans haven’t done a whole lot this offseason. What they did do is sign two of the greatest players to ever play their respective positions. First was Safety, Ed Reed, who comes over after 11 seasons in Baltimore to replace Glover Quin, who signed a five year deal with Detroit. Reed signed for three years and $15mil. The other signing was punter Shane Lechler. We all know punters in football have about as much use as a salad bar at Warren Sapps house, but Lechler is an exception to the rule. Lechler is second all-time in average yards per punt and will help the Texans a great deal by pinning opposing teams down in their own 20.



The Seahawks needed to get more weapons for Russell Wilson and they got arguably one of the most explosive players in the NFL in Percy Harvin. Seattle sent a 1st round pick to the Vikings for Harvin and personally, I don’t think there’s anyone in the draft who can help Seattle more than Harvin. The Seahawks also made their pass rush more deadly by signing Michael Bennett from Tampa Bay and Cliff Avril from Detroit.



The Titans haven’t made any moves that will wow anyone but they have made very, very solid signings (with the exception of cutting Hasselbeck and signing Ryan Fitzpatrick). But Andy Levitre was one of the best guards available in FA, Shonn Greene leaves the craziness of the Jets to be a perfect compliment to Chris Johnson’s crazy speed, Delanie Walker will be a cheaper version of Jared Cook and opposing Wide Receivers will fear going deep with George Wilson and Bernard Pollard lining them up.



The Eagles have followed the same plan as the Titans this offseason. No awe-inspiring signings but all decent moves that make sense. The Eagles improved their pass rush by signing Connor Barwin from the Texans. They lost defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins and then promptly replaced him with former 49er Isaac Sopoaga. The Eagles also cut Nnamdi Asomugha, an excellent CB in the right defensive set but not a good fit for the Eagles. The guys they signed to replace Asomugha and Dominique Rogers-Cromartie, while not as good, are still solid replacements; Cary Williams from Baltimore and Bradley Fletcher from St. Louis. Philly also added safeties Kenny Phillips and Patrick Chung and offensive utility player James Casey.



The clear cut winners of the offseason so far, the Broncos made the best signing in Wes Welker. Not only is Welker the perfect compliment to Peyton Manning due to Manning’s love of slot receivers, but the signing also hurts Denver’s AFC rival, New England, and Peyton Manning’s biggest rival, Tom Brady. Everybody wins except the Patriots, which is an extra win in my book. The Broncos also made two very nice under-the-radar signings; getting CB Dominique Rogers-Cromartie and DT Terrance Knighton. Both should help Denver on their quest for being Super Bowl bound.


Check in tomorrow for part two…the losers! And no, I’m not writing a column about Mike Vick…ooh burn!
