It was fun while it lasted, but effective immediately we're shutting down TJRSports. The link will still work and the archives will be here for a while at least, but we're not going to post anything new.
The site was an experiment. I love sports and writing, so I wanted to try to make something happen. It just didn't work out. That's what happens with experiments sometimes.
There are a number of factors that contributed to it. I don't blame anybody. Part of it is on me. Part of it is lack of content. We tried bringing in writers all the time, but it's tough to grow. We could keep trying, but nothing was going to change. It made me realize it's not going to work and it's not worth the hassle considering how big the sporting landscape is on the internet. It's tough to ask people to write for free. There's no motivation in it sometimes. It's cool to be posting on the internet, but if there aren't enough people reading then writers lose motivation. I totally get that.
As for me, I'll just focus on my wrestling writing at TJRWrestling.com and WhatCulture.com. Follow me on Twitter @johnreport for those updates. It's full time for me. I am busy all the time. I'm not going to do NFL picks anymore. I did like doing them sometimes, but time is an issue for me and I've got too many responsibilities that it would be too tough for me to do them now. I'll just focus on gambling, the fantasy stuff and watching the games.
Thanks for the support and thanks for reading.
