We've been around for several years
now, providing Cardinal fans with news and information about their
football team that they'd find difficult locating any other place. The
challenge has become daunting - as alternative sources of information
have become available. Think about it - we get video streaming of press
conferences. NFL Network covers the Senior Bowl workouts and scouting
combine like a blanket.
Still, we try as hard as we
can to provide you with a different perspective on our favorite team;
Sense of Community:
I want us to be more than just a web site. We share a
fanatic love for the Cardinals, having endured the good,
the bad & (mostly) the ugly and have gotten to know
one another (in a web sense) pretty well. The Red Sheet
should be a place to share the highs and lows of a
typical NFL season - slapping cyber "hi-fives"
over a big win & consoling one another after a bitter
loss. Most of all I want it to be "fun."
Depending on available time & resources, we'll
continue to give you more bang for your buck than our
bare minimum commitment. We'd like to diagram plays &
formations on a Cardinal Playbook, page. and other
features. We hope to develop a play-by-play log of every
game (listing down/yardage, offensive formation, type of
play, its outcome & key factors in its execution). If
you have Netscape 3.0 or another popular browser,
wouldn't it be neat to hear the Cardinal Fight Song
everytime you logged on?
intention is to turn around each game analyses within 24
(preferably 8) hours, we may run into turnaround
difficulties regarding (a) the preseason games (which
aren't televised over satellite - requiring us to wait
for a tape) and the (b) Felon game (because your fearless
editor may be in the Valley with you all rather than
writing & posting the analysis.
Rules of the Road:
We want you to submit input, inside info and feedback
(it's our lifeblood). But (unlike Cards Corner - which
does its thing well) we will not post everything you
submit. I don't want you to have to scroll through 50
articles to find one interesting nugget.
stuff based on one sole criteria - Will it be interesting
to our subscribers. If I think it needs rewriting for
reasons of clarity, grammar or taste, I'll edit it. If
it's beyond redemption, I won't publish it.
Supposed to Be Fun:
The "Heaven's Gate" tragedy is still fresh inmy
mind as I write you. The www is taking a tremendous
amount of unfair media heat as a result. But despite the
fact that the Red Sheet and Heaven's Gate have nothing to
do with one another, I do feel the responsiblity to
suggest that we should never lose sight of the fact that
football (with all its moments of beauty, spirituality,
intensity and drama) is still "only a game."
said that, let's kick back and enjoy The Big Red Sheet. Go Big Red!
