Eric Duhatschek On The Athletic

from Eric Duhatschek of The Athletic,

As a sportswriter for almost 40 years now, I’ve always been intrigued by motivation.

What makes people do what they do? It’s a basic but essential question, asked by psychologists and poets and even people who try to produce NHL columns every week. Often I’ve found, if you can plumb down deep enough into the depths of an athlete’s motivation, you usually unearth a pretty good story.

But this week I had the tables turned on me. As I consulted people in my inner circle about joining The Athletic, suddenly they were asking me questions about my motivation. Collectively, they all understood I had a fabulous job already, writing a column for The Globe and Mail.

So why was I prepared to exchange that for life at a startup?

Wasn’t that a little risky?

And my answer was, yes – it was. And guess what? That’s what made it all the more attractive.

All of us who’ve made a similar leap of faith in the past weeks and months firmly believe The Athletic is the future. Just think of all the quality writers who’ve jumped on board in markets across Canada and the United States. It’s an all-star team.

Pierre LeBrun Joins The Athletic

from Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic,

In an era where the industry is so focused on click-baiting items, lists and videos, I wholeheartedly embrace that The Athletic is willing to gamble on the fact there are sports fans that still desire a deeper dive into the issues, players and teams they are so passionate about. The written word is not dead. It’s been given new life here.

Join us for the ride, folks — it’s going to be something else.

Who Said It?

“I had followed the Bruins all my life. I was a hockey fan. But hockey was the last sport I did as a broadcaster. So I did the same as I would with any other sport. It’s all about reading and research. There isn’t a magic formula."

“You create a familiarity with the teams. You talk to broadcasters, writers and coaches so when it comes time for the game, you have a better feel for the teams.”

The NHL Wins In The Disney/BAMTech Deal

from Ken Fang of Awful Announcing,

Let’s take a look at the winners and losers of the Disney/BAMTech deals.


NHL — ESPN and the NHL? We’ve covered the relationship or lack thereof between ESPN and NHL over the last ten years. But here they are together again at least on the streaming service. And thanks to MLB running the NHL’s streaming product, ESPN will offer NHL.TV subscriptions as an add-on.

MLB and NHL owners — Oh, how the rich get richer. Teams will get more money thanks to this deal and more exposure on a new platform. The money from the subscriptions will be distributed throughout both leagues and owners love money. We can’t forget the investment MLB owners made in BAMTech when it was originally developed. They are smiling today.

more winners plus the losers...
