Editorial Staff

Josh Clark, editor

Just a 17 year old with a love for Dallas sports, especially Stars, and a dream to work in sports media. Love me some Texas hockey and that'll never change. If you like my opinion, sweet. If not, try to prove me wrong.

Marcus Gatto, Staff Writer

Proud Dallas Stars fan living in the Great White North for the past 15+ years. Seen this team reach the peaks of the 1999 Stanley Cup and fall to the valley of losing game 82 against the Minnesota Wild to miss the playoffs. Offer an opinion, backed with fact. Only the good stuff really.

About FanSided

FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn a network of over 290 fan-powered unique sports and entertainment sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.

Executive Team

Patrick Allen, VP, Content & Strategy
