    Again with another "oh it looks good on your resume but no pay" site? Don't we have enough of these already. Title should at least be honest and say one year intern wanted in Philly region. You're basically wanting someone to give you a free year of articles....idk anyone who would want that.

    The Rugby and Ultimate Disc beat may compensate for the lack of compensation.

    :D

    If they're not paying their writers, then teams shouldn't credential them. Otherwise, credentials are open to any and every person with a laptop.
     
  6. Unpaid means delete the thread, right?
