The BRR has devoted a slew of the blog's space towards exposing the arbitrary and largely hypocritical nature of Bleacher Report's standards for "evaluating" its writing staff. On a website staffed with 1100 writers, 75% of whom are unpaid while the majority of the remaining 25% are desperately trying to achieve… »
For background on how and when this interview came to be, go here. The agreement between the interviewer and myself has been that I can either release the interview in full (3 very long hours) or receive consent from him before using certain clips on the BRR. Here are most of the bits for which I received approval and… »

Due to the apparent vagueness of the confidentiality clause in the contracts of Bleacher Report's Lead Writers, I've attributed quotes from Lead Writers to "LW." The number subsequently following each "LW" (i.e. 1, 2, etc.) is not indicative of any actual chronology (i.e. order of signing, order of interview, etc.) or the… »
