    Want a job writing about Football?

    WELL SOON BE SAYING FAREWELL TO MDS
    Posted by Mike Florio on December 19, 2008, 11:45 a.m.
    Well, we knew it would happen eventually. And the day finally has come.Our colleague and very good friend Michael David Smith has been blogger-snatched by AOL on a full-time, exclusive basis, and hell be ending his relationship with PFT and CFT as of January 1.Were not upset about it at all. We want to see people whom we respect and like do well, and its a step up for him. Though we acknowledge from our perspective that it sucks royally, its the right thing for him and we wish him only continued success and prosperity.

    The immediate problem it creates for yours truly is that Im now forced to put out another call for new writers. Because of the sheer number of submissions were guaranteed to get, we need to restrict the call to persons who have experience writing about sports under circumstances in which money eventually changed hands.

    The departure of MDS creates two holes we need a staff writer at PFT and someone wholl take the CFT baton and sprint with it.

    If youre interested, and if you have been paid for writing about sports, send an e-mail indicating in the subject line the position you are interested in.

    In the body of the e-mail, give us your name, your current employer(s), your relevant experience, at least one professional reference, and your days and hours of availability to work on either site.

    Well then contact folks whom we want to submit a sample.

    Do not send a sample in your initial submission, please. If you do, well be forced to send one of our representatives to your home, and he will take a dump in your clothes hamper while you are sleeping.
    Pro Football Talk.com might just be the dream job you've been waiting for?

    Being paid to talk about sports (or any subject, for that matter) doesn't mean that you are good at it.

    As evidence, I offer Emmitt Smith.

    Thanks but it would be too much pressure.
    I prefer to take it easy and slow!
    Happy NFL Training Camp!

    I really never had a desire to be a fiction writer.

    You are just being me to me now!

    You've read the crap I put on here. Like you REALLY think I can put my thoughts succinctly and concisely (wait, is that redundant?) into something others would actually WANT to read? >8)
