It's Beta, meaning if the response is huge, it should stay. Spread the word, traffic on this feature will determine it's fate.


Thoughts? Who's all in on taking on the newswires? FFX use to have this, i want to bring it back (if the traffic is on the page, SPREAD THE WORD!)!

    I like it, but personally would prefer if it was a twitter feed with links back to the SleeperU sight if you wanted to read the details.

    I personally check twitter for news and then head to SleeperU to see what discussions or articles are taking place about said topic.

    Hey @SMFFCN thanks for the feedback, I’ll be likely posting the headline and link on twitter so add Sleeper__u ! Also, keep in mind the news is only half the battle here. It's the fantasy take. Even if let's say you get news 10 different ways and likely see this stuff on other sites/feeds before or at the same time, do you get a 'fantasy take' that you love with those? That's the bigger part of it, each news bit has a SleeperU write-up.

    It be great if you could implement a rolling scroll on the page of new news. Don’t know if that is possible but would love to see it!

    I’ll give it some thought.

    Overall, the fantasy tales attached to each will up the content at SleeperU 10x.

    Spread the word if you all want it to stay, please help make the addition a doable addition! I need your help!

    The more takes the better for me. Fantasy analysis is always appreciated. I remember when it was a feature of FFX. Personally I refresh the Rotoworld feed several times a day, Twitter, MFL, all seem to have instant breaking news. Imho it won’t be a source for me to find breaking news because i’ll have likely already heard it, but I’m interested in multiple takes and always insteresred in instant fantasy analysis. So I would read it to see your takes.

    Yep, The fantasy takes are what it’s all about. We had RSS feeds already. This newswire will call out the relevant weekly news that deserves talking about.

    Yep, love that concept. I’ll be a regular reader if they’re added onto your twitter feed once they post. I may not come to the page directly to scroll through but would absolutely click on over via twitter if it was a write up on something that I wanted more takes on.

    Heck yeah! I’m the same as Vaughn with Rotoworld... would love a one stop shop!
  • Meh - I don’t think I would go there too often. I would read all of them if they were under the “news” tab of the forum like this thread. I have a link direct to the forum.

    Thanks Smitty. This is a keeper. I love it. I don't do social media, so NFL.com and SleeperU are my first stops for news.
  • SmittySmitty Posts: 6,766
    Glad to hear it, I think everyone will grow to love and need the fantasy takes. Think of it like you hear anywhere that Hyde is expected to start Week 1, news that is out right now on lots of newswires... of course you want to know what someone specifically thinks on that, that's going to be the driving force behind the newswire, not so much to break anything always first. It's to address it for you all and give the prediction.

    SMFFCN can you check to see if you're seeing the Twitter posts via Sleeper__U (two underscores) ?

    @smitty yep they're coming through and the link worked perfectly as well. Haven't tried this on mobile yet but I'll give you a heads up if there's any issue.
