RSS for Individual Players

Postby jmohlengraft » Sun Feb 21, 2010 10:20 pm

Anyone know to obtain or make this? I would like all updates for my players sent to an RSS ticker on my desktop.

Wow, that is a great idea. I would be most interested in that was well.

Use http://blogsearch.google.com

Type in player's name

On the left hand side there will be an RSS link you can use.

example - http://blogsearch.google.com/blogsearch ... arch+Blogs

Now I don't know how wonderful this would work for you, but this is my best guess to what you're looking for.

That's close, and maybe the best that I'm going to get. But what I'm looking for is something more like the FBBL/Rotowire short updates RSS. many sites carry them so I assume they are RSSing them rather than manually updating.

The more I look into RSS, The more I see it's potential.

A lot of players tweet and there's an RSS feed for every Twitter feed...

E.g.,
http://twitter.com/Evan3Longoria
http://twitter.com/mattholliday7

Go to their Twitter feed and in the lower-right corner, you'll see the RSS feed.

How many spots do you bump down Holliday for loving the new Creed album while he's biking?

:-b I'm not condoning the quality of their posts, just giving examples. Most of these guys' tweets don't have a lot of useful content.

Could be worse. At least it's not Lady Gaga while doing Pilates.

This is the actual RSS feed from the page:
http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/rss/blog ... g_training

I use Google's RSS reader ( ;D ), and it looks like the last few entries are hosed. Is that the problem you're seeing?
