Curious about soccer posts

    I'm just curious if any of these soccer gig posts turn into actual assignments. My soccer coverage experience is extensive but it also seemed to be a difficult and usually losing battle in getting anybody to pay attention.

    Rarely. I have been doing this since last fall and gotten two one-game gigs out of it, one for the Fire and one for the Red Stars.

    It's infinitely better to e-mail editors directly. They're not going to go scouring a message board for someone who has posted their availability in that city when a need arises.

    Agreed. If there is a tourney/playoff game in the area or that I'm already covering, I look for any out of town teams and find any paper remotely close. I throw enough emails out into cyberspace and usually I pick up a few gigs.
