    Well, first off I'd like to thank you for visiting one of the Oldest and Most known Chicago Bears Fan Sites on the internet.

    We have always had that something special that Chicago Bears fans return for. Maybe its the Chicago Bears Fans? Maybe its the fun we have? Maybe its because we keep this place troll free? After all this is the BEST place for Chicago Bears Fans.

    Ok, so I'm done selling you about DaBears.com, after all you are here already!

    So what is this all about?
    We are looking to add original content again on DaBears.com. We are looking for members who wish to have their articles posted on our front page! You can have your articles posted for members to read and comment on.
    It's more than just articles. It's true interaction with real fans. Not the homers you may be used to.
    We're looking for post game reviews, Top ten lists, Pre-Game analysis, weekly game picks, you name it.
    We want to offer our members the ability to share their knowledge and accounts of the game, from the center stage.

    What's in it for you?
    Well, right now I can't specifically promise you a Pulitzer, I can offer you invites we get from players, Charity events, and interviews. Yes, you will become known. It's no secret that we get a lot of people who visit here. We have a lot of players who have contacted us through the years for various fan fun events. I have always passed these onto the fans.
    Once you write for a season, I will be sending out a token of DaBears.com's appreciation to you! It won't be a Dodge Viper, or '85 Superbowl Ring. I do promise to you that what I send to you will be worth roughly $100. That's on top of anything else you earn here.

    - You will get your own Forum to post in, and control.
    - We will also provide you with places to get media/press content. This includes getty images (which we are licensed to use).
    - You will be given Superfan status, which in itself gives you some perks on the site.

    I wish I could tell you more, but with our upcoming season looking to be very special, I don't want to promise you something I can't. Over a half dozen members have given interviews based on our articles in the past. Some have met players.

    If you are interested, post in this thread, or start a conversation with me.

    We can talk more if you have any questions.

    Bear-Down, and Let's Do This!!

    ~ Rick

    Hi Rick,
    I would be willing to give this a try, but I realize there are some people here who could do a better job. Guys like Ric or Soul and a number of others here who seem to have a better knowledge of football in general, and the Bears in particular - better than me anyway. I'm going to go to some training camp this year, and maybe I could write some about that - and post some pics too.

    We're hoping to go to the Tampa Bay game this year too. We thought that would be pretty cool due to Lovie being the TB coach, and coming back to Chicago.

    Anyway, just let me know. And you sure won't hurt my feelings if you have others in mind for this, but I thought I'd offer.

    ~ Dave

    I think @soulman would be a great writer. He always has well thought out posts... whether or not we agree with him does not matter. He puts more time and thought into his posts than just about anyone else I think

    I was hoping we could send Burris somewhere. Somewhere out THERE.

    My thoughts are having a DBS NFL ranking each week, game preview/review, top plays of the game, game ball awards, history articles etc.

    Nothing crazy, nothing long, nothing too involved..

    I used to love the Shower Rankings.

    I miss onemanswarm. He was great with his rankings.

    People may not agree with my choices, but I will do the game ball pieces. I've done the polls the last year or so, I can write something up instead of doing a poll

    History articles? That's something I think I would really enjoy helping with. I am a bit of a history buff, and one of my interests has always been Bears history. I'm not sure if that's something that would be weekly, or perhaps monthly through the whole year or what. I've always been hesitant to volunteer for such things as life and work sometimes gets crazy, but as my kids are getting older and leaving the nest, perhaps it is time to give something like this a try. I've got to say, this board and the participants here have given me a helluva lot of joy/fun, so I would be willing to give back by doing something like this.

    I love the idea of different writer's taking on different types of articles. History is always big and appreciated (plus no need to feel the pressure of a deadline). Something on the division (preview, rankings during season, etc) or league as a whole (shower rankings ROCKED). Player/scheme stuff. Former Bears (where are they now or whatever).
