Digital vs. Print: How Do You Prefer Your Football News?

Jeremy Pike@JeremyNPikeCorrespondent IJanuary 28, 2010

While at Borders in Victor today, I came across the 2010 edition of Writer’s Market.

I thumbed through it to see if it listed any football magazines so I could submit some articles I’ve written (and possible future ones) to actual print publications.

It listed none.

So I went over to the sports magazine section to see what was over there. ESPN The Magazine, Sports Illustrated, a bunch of fantasy baseball magazines, and Pro Football Weekly. Only one football magazine.

Why is that? Football is one of the most popular sports in the US, yet no specialized publications? Is there even a demand for a magazine about football?

So I submit a series of questions to all of you.

First question is the title of this post. Do you prefer getting your news, specifically football news, via the Internet or newspapers and magazines?

Secondly, would you read a magazine covering nothing but football? This isn’t limited to the National Football League. That means college football, the UFL, even high school.

Thirdly, would any of you want to contribute to such a venture, be it by helping write, edit, or publish it?

If I can get enough people together, I would love to launch a football magazine. Even if it has to be local to Western New York, it’s got to start somewhere.
