DescriptionAn increasingly large player in the world of sports fan blogs the Sports Gab Network has been one of several such news sites in the past couple of years to give many of the traditional online sports news sites a run for their money. The site was founded with just one contributor in 2006 when an NFL blog written from the perspective of a man on the street (and not a man in a press box) was still refreshingly novel. Since then the site has gone from five hundred visitors in its first month to 600000 unique visitors a month now according to the site’s own numbers and the site itself has expanded from a single blog known as NFL Gridiron Gab to seventy-one individual blogs including one for each NFL team in the league. Some of the sites contributors both paid and unpaid have made media appearances or had their work referenced in places as varied as Anderson Cooper 360 and Food & Wine magazine.
