I was a full-time on call writer for Bleacher report's NFL TNT Team before returning to college for my final year. I now write for the Guardian's NFL coverage team, Irishcentral as a blogger and Steelersdepot.
I hope to come back to Bleacher report as a full-time writer in the future.

I can see where your coming from. Totally. Loyalty from sports franchises outwards are a rarity, and it kind of seems unfair that fans, players ect don't get the same loyalty right back. But, we all have to take sports for what it is. Yes we have the choice to switch from one team to another and to give our money from one business to another— but the rest of our lives works like that. Try and get better for our money, switch this and that. I like the fact of following a team to death. Something solid that never changes.
I value that personally.
Hey there just responding to your post about the Soccer Debate and follow teams blindly. You took the complete opposite stand that I would. So, this calls for some refutation. (btw love that you are an NFL + soccer guy, not many guys share those passions)
For me, sports is all about loyalty. Its whats wrong with North American sports and our culture pushes this non-loyalty. Its why our leagues need salary caps— for competitive fairness to keep fans coming. In Europe they don't need caps because fans will come out no matter what. Its not about championships, as you want to come out and support the team you love whether its to avoid relegation or to finish in a Europa League spot.
Obviously blindly following like if your club were to start issuing you new names and meeting times to travel to outer space is when its time to which support, but bandwagoning is a sad art in the sports world.
The times players are not sold for under performing because of their history in the club, or players taking salary cuts to stay with a certain team still happens in today's sports world. All the time! And its always taken with extreme respect.
North American culture ignores all this while they should be promoting team loyalty. If you can't stay loyal to a sports franchise, then what can you stay loyal too?
Hey, would you be able to send your e mail to email@example.com? I want to get the B/R community leaders on a mailing list for a press release on behalf of Sports Media 101.

Hey Cian, check out my new list on fantasy's biggest winners of the preseason!
Just read your article about the Eagles offensive line. Oh wait, it was more about how you hate the Eagles and Michael Vick. I left a nice comment for you in the comments section of that article. Hope you enjoy it. Get back to me.

Hi, my name is Giorgio Di Franco. I am the senior editor of www.footballbook.ca which is a website where we talk about nothing but NFL football.
We are in our third year on the internet (we started as a local club 20 years ago) and by popular demand we have opened ourselves up to other contributors and now have a forum dedicated to people who would like to post articles/videos with their opinions on anything related to the NFL on our forum page in the “articles” section titled “footballbook.ca.”

Cian: Greetings from Brazil!
Enjoyed your LFC article.
Just wanted to tell you, I'm still pissed off since that game between Ireland and France, where Henry used handball. Disgraceful and shocking. And the Irish team was superior to the French.
But Karma worked misteryous ways, and we know what happened to the French during at 2010 WC
