Chris Hansen – Editor
The poor economy and converging media left me without many opportunities to use my degree in Broadcast Journalism. Having taken a corporate job to support my family, I felt the best thing to do was blog about the local sports scene. After a couple of years it really started to take off and Raidersblog has become one of Raider Nation’s go-to destinations for news and analysis.
I bring years of expertise and education to the table and will manage the content of 32 branded team blogs that will launch with similar names.
Don’t worry, I’ll continue to provide the great Raiders content you expect and much more. I may occasionally suggest good beer.
Not only is Rick a talented writer and editor, he analyzes, reviews and grades games in a process that can take up to six hours. This process enables Rick to have a more complete view of the game. If you want to know what players are producing, Rick can tell you. He can also tell you how the players are being utilized to maximize or minimize their impacts on the game.
He can also suggest a wine pairing for your tailgate, just don’t go to him for beer recommendations.
He’s only an occasional contributor on Raidersblog, so keep a sharp eye out for when Rick wants to drop Raiders knowledge.
