Introducing: The RCS Blog Network

Dear Readers:

We're pleased to announce the launching of the RCS Blog Network, a collection of over 50 blogs covering topics ranging from the New York Yankees, Los Angeles Lakers to golf, tennis, even cricket.

While RealClearSports has always been the leading aggregator of sports news and commentary from around the world, we now will also serve as a place that generates high quality original content. Our network will only grow over time, with more topics, sports, leagues and teams to be covered in the near future.

With print media continuing to be beset by a financial - even existential - crisis, the marketplace is now flooded with top sports journalists seeking to expand their reach and perhaps transition into a new web-based career. And this is where we come in: We have scooped up a number of these journalists, with more to come onboard in short order.

David Steele, formerly of the Baltimore Sun, writes The Steele Drum, on all that's going on in the realm of sports, particularly the NBA. Justice Hill, now teaching journalism at Ohio University, keeps his eye on LeBron, the dysfunctional Browns and his beloved Buckeyes at Justice Is Served. Doug Clawson, so disgusted with the newspaper business that he moved to Germany to escape it, finds that he can't lay off his addiction to the NFL and golf in The Grill Room.

There are many more, covering the pros and colleges, offering their insight on teams and regions from across the United States. Want to know about Alabama, Auburn and even UAB? Rubin Grant is your man. The Beltway? Check with Marvin Greene. In fact, we encourage you to peruse the biographies of our bloggers, as well as our ever-expanding lineup of blogs in the RCS Blog Network.

We have also revamped what used to be the RCS Blog. In RCS Sidelines, our staff members will continue to keep you abreast of all the latest sports news and issues. We will post much more frequently than in the past, and very soon, our newly revamped comments function will be set up to allow for greater interaction with our readers.

Meanwhile, our own columnists will continue to provide commentary with links fom our front page. Art Spander, a Hall of Fame journalist who last year received the PGA's Lifetime Achievement Award, will be covering the big events, such as the Super Bowl, BCS National Championship Game and the Masters. Tim Joyce, a veteran tennis commentator, writes on Sundays and Tuesdays. Jeff Neuman, a longtime editor and author, appears on Mondays and Thursdays. And of course, our popular Top 10 List is still published every Tuesday.

Finally, if you haven't noticed, we've added contents from The Sports Network, which provides the most up-to-date sports scores, statistics, betting lines, analysis and news. You can access all that TSN has to offer from our scoreboard on the front page, or the ‘Stats' tab on the navigation bar.

Thank you for your continued support. Your suggestions and comments are always appreciated. You may contact us at
