    awesome article about the EPL needing more player access (sarcasm). you should stop looking at the EPL through an american lens and think that it should be treated the same way we do things here in 'murica. as usual, your article is incredibly poorly thought out, makes little to no sense, and has been thoroughly ripped apart by commenters who actually have brains in their head and are capable of intelligent thought (a foreign concept, i know). great job. fail.

    Hi Ryan, I am currently in my first year of High School, I was wondering how do you become a writer for Bleacher Report articles. I want to become a Sports Journalist in the future and I want to give it a try. I am a Big Fan of Soccer. Out of all the Writers, your articles are very interesting.

    My question is how do you become a writer for Bleacher Report because I am thinking about my career paths and maybe you could help me out.

    I am looking forward towards your reply.
