"Puck Labor Day"

That's the title of a new opinion piece of mine at The Daily Caller, in which I argue that fans should harness the power of the Internet to make our voices heard in the current CBA negotiations. Media outlets too often focus solely on the struggle between labor and management in these disputes, and we fans get overlooked. So it's up to us to make sure people know what we think.

Nic Wise and (Allegedly) Joakim Noah Clash on Text

H/T to @mwong22 for passing this along: apparently Joakim Noah does not like other pro hoopers messaging with this girlfriend, a woman named Amanda. Nic Wise tweeted the interaction with someone claiming to be Noah. Later, he sent out: Woke up feelin bad smh. Apologies to @joakimnoah— Nic Wise (@TheNicWise) May 22, 2012 You can understand Noah's hostility. Wise did average 1.5 steals per game in his time at Arizona, after all.

How Gonzaga is using social media to engage women's basketball fans

I was just talking with petrel earlier today about how he was spot on about his observation that Georgia Tech's use of video is a good thing for building a buzz about women's basketball. Partnership Activation provides a detailed breakdown of six strategic objectives of Gonzaga's ZagsLocker.com and how they benefit women's basketball there. Great, succinct piece and worth a read for those interested in what programs are doing to help engage women's basketball fans.

What is the actual return on investment on social media for sports teams? And how do we calculate it?

Freelantz wrote last week about how Indiana Fever rookie Jene Morris is using social media to help "build a brand" for herself. However, as people extol the benefits of social media, it may be time for sports teams -- and perhaps sports media outlets as well -- to ask what exactly are we getting out of this?
