Toward a New Idea of Soccer Journalism

North of the Rio Grande, we all pine for more soccer journalism — but do we really want our own Buster Olneys or Peter Kings? More Steves, Iveses or Grants? The names standing a decade hence aren’t going to be imitators of dead-tree sportswriting — they’ll be “writers willing to step outside the stadium with eyes wide open, observant to what’s happening outside the field of play.” And the model that supports them will have to follow that ethos. (Richard Whittall/Pitch Invasion) (Full disclosure: The post has nice words for Must Read Soccer.)
