FASTPHILLYSPORTS.COM Now Offering Alternative Take on Philly Sports


Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/19/2014 -- The Philadelphia area sports market has long been considered the best in the United States, and now it has a digital sports site worthy of its fans. FASTPHILLYSPORTS.COM is comprised of the best original and aggregated sports journalism with a perspective and edge not previously seen in the Philadelphia media market. The Philadelphia sports blog reflects the best ideas that founder Theodore N. Beitchman has developed over his years as a newspaper sports editor in Washington, D. C. and San Francisco, and as a magazine senior editor at Rolling Stone, Inside Sports and Sports Illustrated.

The site’s fundamental guiding belief is to afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted, the latter of which is represented by Philly’s long-suffering fans. FASTPHILLYSPORTS.COM went live in May, and in just three months it has separated itself from other publications and sites by:

- Taking a critical look at the Phillies’ new $2.5 billion, 25-year TV rights contract they signed with Comcast, which would have been doubled if they had invited in other bidders;

- Investigating how Ed Snider’s disloyalty to Jerry Wolman 50 years ago led to the beginning of Snider’s career and the end of Wolman’s

- Criticizing members of the print, broadcast and digital media for accepting and endorsing the conventional wisdom, which never does;

- A withering criticism of city government for creating a new Blood Sport by imposing bike lanes in more than 200 miles of the city’s narrow streets, which drew cheers from the Daily News’ Stu Bykofsky —

- Offering a series of service lists including, Best Sports Bars, Best Soccer Bars, Best Restaurants That Cater to Sports Fans and a Complete List of Sports on TV.

Unlike other publications and sites, is not owned by a corporation that is partners with all Philly teams, so its viewpoints are not colored by corporate considerations; and we concentrate on sports and only sports. Every fact that appears on is checked by our fact-checkers so readers know that its opinions are backed up by a strong foundation.

Those looking for an alternative to the traditional Philadelphia sports or sixers blog are encouraged to check out today.
