I’ve been back and forth in my head about whether or not to write this. On the one hand, the Giants draft infuriated me so badly that I feel like I have to talk about it, or else I’ll scream. But then again, everybody and their brother has already written something about the draft. It’s not clear that the universe needs my particular thoughts.
Part of the reason that I’m actually doing this, and that I’m doing it here, is that we’ve been over this at some length as an As For Football (AFF) staff, and not to put too fine a point on it, but nothing that’s not directly tied to Army Football is really on the menu over there. We’ve got two sponsors now, and we’re growing, and things are generally pretty great. However, our audience is a distinctly Army Football audience. My dream of doing a weekly CFB Roundtable podcast are on indefinite hold, and any coverage of other teams and/or other aspects of the sports are also out at least for the foreseeable future. My long-term goal for the site is to cover not only Army Football but also the football that Army fans are watching. But there’s no consensus as to exactly what that means, nor has any of that stuff drawn enough interest to make it worthwhile. Meanwhile, we need to actively resist taking focus away from stuff that’s actually working.
I’m not sure how to handle it. Part of me feels like I should just do CFB Roundtable here, and if there’s an audience for it, maybe that will create some kind of opportunity. We’ll see how it goes as the season progresses.
