    Hello Everybody

    The name of the Website is ReportSide.com and we are launching this Fall. We are in the process of getting Media Passes to Los Angeles Sports Teams and need to Hire Credible Reporters who already have a following and/or media credentials. This was advised by the teams. Our website will have reporters all over the country but this is the first step.

    Send me Message or Reply Here please.

    Apply Now.

    Thank You

    Will credible reporters do, or must they be Credible? Or how about incredible?

    that site took as long to build as the Amazingly capitalized Post.

    Is this paid? Or is it like Bleacher Report and several other fan sites where making money is only a pipe dream?

    This is a very good question. But Bleacher Report actually does pay its national writers pretty well. I'm sure Turner money helped with that. As far as the everyday schmoes who write just to write, then, yeah, pretty sure they don't get anything.

    100% Paid ! This website is a game changer and eventually be a top 5 place to get your sports fix. Everybody should apply .

    It's a game changer? Based on what evidence? And top 5? So this site is going to displace ESPN, Deadspin, CBS Sports, Outkick the Coverage, SB Nation, even Bleacher Report, etc., solely because you say so?

    How many hits do you expect this to get at first and why? How much will you pay your employees and how much will these positions pay? Is there a contract to guarantee payment or is this a freelance basis?

    Also, what are your credentials? Do you have any type of a writing background or are you yet another fan starting a blog hoping to strike gold?

    It will be a game changer based on these reasons.
    A) 75k Hits on the site so far and it hasnt even launched yet.
    B) Almost 1500 Twitter followers without Site launch yet and word of mouth when we break news
    C) We get info first a lot of the time before Main Stream Media. Just yesterday we broke Jason Kidd 3yr Head Coach deal 8 hours before Yahoo got the word even though they got the credit because we are so new nobody really knows us yet
    D) We will have media passes and have connections with teams to grant us exclusive interviews with players.
    E) Our site will employ Athletes right off the bat to do columns and video interviews ( Cant disclose info/names yet)

    Anything else I missed?

    I see where you tweeted that out. That doesn't prove to me it wasn't a lucky guess. There's no track record for this succeeding and you still haven't shown how you're going to continue to get hits.
