FSB Daily 8/18: Tugwater and Writing Opportunities

Wednesday, August 18th, 2010

A roundup of items recently posted on the FSB News page.

- What has Gary Busey been up to on the rare occasion he steps away from Twitter? He got a new name, a new law degree and is helping professional athletes collect on fees they haven’t been receiving from us fantasy owners … all in the name of selling Vitamin Water. Meet Norman Tugwater.

- The most recent Fantasy Sports Writers Association newsletter announced the plan for “launching a new website that focuses on fantasy football in a unique and innovative way.” In the words of FSWA president Mike Beacom, “This is not your typical fantasy football site but one that has potential to change the fantasy football landscape.” Interested writers with daily availability to produce content throughout the season can contact [email protected] (Josh).

- Pro Football Focus is looking for “stat-oriented” writers to add to its recently built-out fantasy section, especially those with the ability to cover individual defensive players. Writers will get access to PFF’s player stats and ratings data, which requires a subscription otherwise.

- World Fantasy Games is on the lookout for fantasy hockey and fantasy basketball folks looking to make their way into the industry. Contact some dude named Matt Schauf if you’re interested.

- Just as it has for the past couple of seasons in football, the FSWA will ask its membership this year to vote on the top fantasy performers in baseball. The ballot will be put together between now and the end of the season, with the winners to be announced during the World Series.
