About

Sports journalism in Detroit leaves so many fans and enthusiasts wanting more. The local dailies lack edginess. Their writers often come off as cheerleaders and shills. 

A number of websites have tried to pick up the slack but many of them don't have writers who are terribly knowledgeable or possess sharp writing skills that draw readers in. 

Motor City Sports Online aims to provide fans of the Detroit sports teams around the world with knowledgeable, opinionated, compelling content that isn't "bought and paid for" by the teams in town. 

Motor City Sports Online isn't going to be just a website. It's going to be an experience.

Motor City Sports Online will change the way Detroit sports is presented. Forever.

Risks and challenges

The risks for this project can be boiled down to one: nobody visits or is engaged by the site. Nobody is going to die.

I've been following and/or covering the teams in Detroit since 1970. I possess a combination of knowledge and writing skill that few have.

Where I lack some experience is in marketing and in developing business models. But I plan on seeking counsel from those who do possess those skills and experiences.
