    If it's posted on Craigslist, it must be quality.

    Lantaur:

    On the face of it, you are right.

    But as the current editor of the site looking to make the hire, and as someone who has worked as a staff reporter in the N.Y. Metro market, I can tell you this position is potentially much more lucrative than most reporter and copy editor jobs posted here.

    Not to mention fun.

    Would you rather cover 5-10 high schools and a D-II college for a 50,000 circulation paper in Anytown, USA? And get beaten down by the banality of the job to boot...

    Or would you rather take a chance on a startup that offers you a chance to gain management experience, Internet and graphic skills, along with the fact that you set the agenda on fantasy sports each day.

    FYI: Employees on the ground floor of startups that succeed get paid well in the end. That will be no different here.

    Appreciate you all for looking.

    A part-time job that pays $10 an hour on Long Island? No thanks. I prefer not having to live in a homeless shelter.

    What a Web site! I really like the "WTF!" portion — real quality sports journalism here. The has-been flippin the bird is a real nice touch.

    I'll take the beatdown and banality, thanks.

    Don't forget, it's banality with benefits, which this great opportunity lacks.

    Buy guys, come on, it's not just Fantasy Sports Update, it's Fantasy Sports Update! That mere exuberance lends it some credibility, right? ::)
