Soccer Blogs Beat Mainstream Media To News Stories

chelsea.jpgIn the world of technology, the top sites aren’t magazines or newspapers. They’re blogs. Web sites such as TechCrunch, Engadget and Boing Boing lead the way with the latest breaking news and analysis, as well as receiving more visitors than some of the giants in tech publishing.

While soccer blogs aren’t in the same echelon as tech blogs, it’s only a matter of time. Two examples this week of how soccer blogs are pushing the envelope by covering topics that mainstream media have yet to catch on to are featured on two of my favorite blogs, Pitch Invasion and 101 Great Goals.

I’ll let the two articles speak for themselves. The first one is by guest writer Terry Daley who writes about the politics of working behind the scenes with Chelsea Football Club. The second article is about Rio Ferdinand being questioned by police in Israel. They’re both must-read articles.

    Great piece, Gaffer, and good to see this happening. Us bloggers can keep the “real” journalists on their toes!
