Just got one
BTW, I moved our VM discussion to PM since it was getting way too long.
Yeah, I've been trying to build up my stats/R skills, hope to work on SQL a bit more over the summer. Hoping that helps my chances to land with a team. Although I've been lucky enough to get a chance to work with a proprietary dataset (Vantage, my stuff is up on their blog, should be easy to find) so I'm hoping that with some new unique research/stats and maybe a contribution to the RAPM stat using the Vantage metrics, might help me get a job. And pitching some of those ideas to 538 hoping they'll publish it (I met Nate Silver at the conference, he seemed intrigued but I don't know). Got to interview with the Jaguars too (long interview) but I think I just missed the cut. Anyways, I think I might have a better shot with the NBA right now since thats where all my contacts/readership is. Been using twitter as well to broaden my network.
Was it an unpaid internship with the Nets? Cause I think I found that on the Sloan Sports Conf job board. But I assume that you're aware of all the APBR stats if you interviewed with the Nets? Are you on the APBR board? Have a favorite stat? Also, noticed your Sports Post site is owned by yardbarker/fox?
Just curious. Writing has kind of just become a means to an end for me. I mean if I could write for 538 or ESPN Insider or something, I'd probably do it lol. But my stuff has been mainly research based writing with the focus of hopefully getting a job with a team one day. Think I'm close (have interviewed with a team and have met exec's with over 5+ teams). Hoping my next piece gets some traction with a former ESPN employee turned high level front office exec that I met.
Wanted to ask you where do you write?
Will do. I think they're trying to get the sign up thread going in the entertainment forum.
Would you be up for a superhero redraft soon? There's been some talk in the thread of starting another one up.
Man, you got good eyes for that religious stuff in movies, I don't ever notice anything as that. I dunno if I just choose not to or what. Thanks for sharing your thoughts tho I definitely enjoyed that. While I don't agree with being so harsh on the plots of the movies, I do see what you mean. Thanks again man!
