“We started Razzball because no other site talked about fantasy sports from the fan perspective,” said Albright. ”Now that we have joined forces with Bleacher Report, we can fully realize this dream by outsourcing all the writing to the fans themselves.”


Let's see Razzball starts 2008 the Cafe starts 2002/2003 - I believe the 'Cafe' has been doing it much longer than you Rudy. :-°

My thoughts exactly, and I really like Razzball. I hope it doesn't go downhill.

Other than Grey I'm getting tired of the schmuckiness of the other guys that have been writing there lately and find myself screaming "get your own style schmuck" I think BR deserves these guys. ;-)

Bleacher Report is probably my least favorite website on the Internet. I don't think I've ever read a decent article on there and it's astonishing how much press they get.

SIGS!

People like lists and slideshows. They marketed extremely well to the mass public who are largely casual players.

Fair enough, but for fantasy, or any sort of depth they're worthless.

And yeah, on Razzball, I read Grey, and sometimes Rudy. No offense to the other authors, but I pretend like they aren't even there... sadly, it's the same with a number of BPro authors these days as well...

Edit: Just to be clear, I'm not comparing styles, but just saying that I dislike much of what is published at both sites these days, but stick to a few favorites...
