— A Timely Look at Transactions as They Happen
Tuesday, May 18, 2010
There have been very few TO updates since I started contributing to ESPN this past winter. I’ve been pondering what approach to take as there are going to be some transactions that will be written for ESPN and not here (like the Howard signing) as a result of the exclusivity clause in my contract. Rather than update things without a clear plan of what to do in those instances, I just left everything in limbo.
At this point, I’m still unsure what approach to take is best, so I thought I’d open the conversation up to the readership to see what you guys would like to see. I’m referring to blog entries that I can’t write here, not all of them.
- Don’t write entries for those certain signings at all - link to ESPN article and aggregate links to analysis of the signing in question.
I’m leaning towards a hybrid of 1 and 3, linking the ESPN article on the subject and bringing in independent writers based on the teams involved in the transaction. And if the community is in favor of this idea, would people prefer to see entries written by better-known writers that you’re already comfortable with or use those entries as opportunities to showcase writers of less prominent blogs that would benefit from exposure.
Any and all feedback is welcome, assuming it’s not simply telling me that I’m a sell-out. I’ve already gotten enough e-mails in that vein, so I personally feel that argument has been fully presented and exhausted.
