The Yardbarker Mission
Yardbarker breaks down traditional barriers, allowing fans and athletes to debate sports, read and write articles, and watch videos. In the Yard, even the famous athletes are treated like fans.
We feature thousands of sports websites and blogs, so you'll get news, rumors, photos and videos that you won't find elsewhere. We make it easier to follow your favorite teams, talk sports, and submit links to interesting articles found elsewhere on the web.
You don't need your own sports blog to join the discussion on Yardbarker. All you need is an opinion. But if you do have your own blog, join the Yardbarker Network. We will promote your site, increase your traffic, and put money in your pocket.
Yardbarker (www.yardbarker.com) is a hot Bay Area startup that is revolutionizing sports media. Yardbarker.com is becoming the place where fans and athletes hang out and talk sports, and our site is the blogging home for many prominent athletes, including Greg Oden, Donovan McNabb, Baron Davis, Carmelo Anthony, and Dontrelle Willis. We also operate the Yardbarker Network, an affiliation of over 300 high-quality sports blogs that assign us their traffic and the right to represent their inventory to premium brand advertisers.
We are very well funded and serious about building a high quality team. Our current team brings experience from ESPN.com, Disney Online, Napster, CNET and Ofoto, and our investors include well known VCs and superstar athletes.
