I’m running out of steam on writing these, so if the intros get shorter, I apologize. But this one is worth it. The people we have love/hate relationships with. Vote away.
EPL Talk—Where do I begin? How about with a confession? I used to write for EPL Talk. A couple years ago, I wrote for The Gaffer before I changed jobs and had to stop. When I decided I could write for a blog again, I chose to go in a different direction, and the rest is history. The facts are these: We give The Gaffer and his crew a really hard time, but they have a huge following, and he knows how to market the hell out of those sites. He’s done something right, and we need to admit it.
Avoiding the Drop—Part of the fun of knowing most of these guys is that we can rip them a new one for giving Georger a soapbox—we kid, buddy, we kid—but they are good people who write well, so we’ll be nice for today.
The Run of Play—This is a controversial one, since James T (huge fan) guested there once, and thus not everybody on the UF crew rags on/dislikes this blog. With 14-15 people on our “staff”, you can imagine that opinions run the gamut, right? One thing is certain: it’s the most visually appealing blog in the whole group. And what Brian Phillips does, he does well. Very well.
The Offside—I admit it… I’m not a fan. But does any other site get as many subjects covered in such a space? I think not. They know what they’re doing and do it to the fullest.
There you go. Four solid contenders. Vote away or go back to the main post for the rest of the categories. Vote safely!
