With that being said, we are looking for writers to blog on the website. The requirements are as follows:

If you have any questions, I will answer them in the comments area below.  Please do not be rude.  If this doesn’t interest you then why’d you click the post in the first place?  A lot of people read this website and are sports fans as well as wrestling fans so I feel this is a relevant post.  Yes, it is non-wrestling related and I apologize if that offends you.

  • Avalanchian

    Just doesn’t sound right when you say “American Football” because we know that as the NFL. It’s forever soccer in North America.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Richard Gray

      Yeah, I like to call it football.

      • Ant_C

        I’m American and I always call it football over soccer too. The people at bars I go to watch premier league and my friends will either laugh at me or yell at me if I call it soccer. Just curious Richard which team(s) do you support if any. Arsenal supporter here.

        • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Richard Gray

          Yeah I don’t want to fire people about it, as it can get quite controversial BUT… As I understand it, the term “soccer” began as British slang and was later adopted in the US in the early 1900s and into Canada by the 1950s. Today, I don’t like it for a couple of reasons.

          One, it has ethnocentric connotations. I love my country, I root for Team USA (I watched Landon Donovan and crew just last night). But sometimes I think we, as Americans, can show a certain level of arrogance in that “my football is better than your football.” Two, “soccer” in the US is kind of like the WNBA. It’s not really a big deal and pales in comparison to the “big four” sports.

          However, football [association football] on the other hand, is the most recognizable and entertaining sport on the planet. It’s stars are bigger than entire sports franchises. A sobering example for any American is when the Dallas Cowboys (the most popular American football team and my personal favorite) against Leo Messi (the best footballer in the world and my personal 2nd favorite) are compared on Facebook. The Cowboys boast over 5 million likes, while Messi has over 47 million. Point proven, case closed.

          Back to your question, my favorite teams are Manchester United and FC Barcelona. It’s funny considering they seem to be in a heated battle at the moment for Cesc Fàbregas but they’re the two clubs I follow. In fact, I just ordered my Neymar kit this week and already have my 2013/14 United shorts;). BTW the Premier League is coming to US television and I expect the popularity to explode.

          • Ant_C

            I kind of agree with your point about American’s showing arrogance with the names for the sport but for a different reason. Its kind of like the rest of the world calls it football but we’re like oh well we don’t have to call it that we’ll call it something else.

            The transfer market is really exciting to see who goes where. I know arsenal needs to make a few moves. I’m going to wait and see who they get before I order my kit. Plus I want to get a champions league one (already have a Jack WIlshere prem one) and those are not even out yet.

            I was nervous that I would not get to see some of the games so I looked up what kidn of coverage NBC is going to have and on paper it sounds really good. I think it will get more people into it. A lot of companies charged extra for fox soccer channel as part of a sports package. But now NBC is going to have it on their sports net, USA, CNBC and NBC free broadcast channel so it will be in a lot more homes now. They paid something like $250 million for five years so spending that kind of money they’re going to go all out with it.

    Do you have to have prior experience? I would love to apply for a World Football spot but I don’t haven’t done anything like this before.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Richard Gray

      No prior experience needed. If you can write, you can get a shot at this. This is a great opportunity to get experience to take the next step to covering the sport for a living.

    • Chopper

      U don’t require prior experience but you do require the ability to write.. I don’t haven’t??? U teach me to football… Hahaha

  • Dustyn

    While I am not a football (soccer) fan, it’s great that you are doing this site for the world’s most popular sport. Once the NFL site is launched, I will for sure be reading!!

    P.S. If you ever launch a CFL section, I would for sure be interested in writing!!

  • Patrick

    while I don’t watch either.. soccer to me is with that checked black and white ball you kick with your feet. football that uses the oddly shaped ball that you throw with your hands and has laces up the center. and brown in color. two different sports at least here in America.

  • Tim

    Hmm it was as I thought

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Richard Gray

      Hah no, I just didn’t want people thinking WNW is going to start covering FOOTBALL on a WRESTLING WEBSITE?!?!?!?!?

      • Tim

        It’ll be nice to see someone cover. Both sports and wrestling ,Unlike Espn

  • Robbie

    Hey Richard, when will the decision be made? I would be very interested in delivering news on the Premier League

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Richard Gray

      I haven’t started going through applications yet. I will begin this weekend. Hopefully today.

      • Robbie

        Just sent mine in :)
