A Great Addition

Keepin' It Real is excited to announce the addition of a new member to the staff. Darin Hoopes is going to be helping out with various aspects of the site, and has spent the last week or so getting up to speed. Darin's first contribution was the previous update "A Real World Review", and he will also assist with the daily updates to help us stay on top of things. Darin's addition will also help us to move forward with more original content which was the original purpose of this blog. Some of you may know Darin as the Big Soccer poster chronicrslnewb. Join us in welcoming Darin to the Keepin' it Real staff.
More Additions
Speaking of additions, there have been a couple of recent additions to the site that you will be seeing more of, specifically...
A View From the Other Side: The first edition of this appeared on Friday courtesy of BolivianFeugo. The concept is that we will try to get the perspective of an opposing team's supporter prior to every match. This is a perspective that we don't always get, as we mostly see the viewpoint of RSL supporters. If you have any ideas of potential writers who are supporters of an upcoming opponent, feel free to email me at and let me know.
A Real Word Review: The first edition of this appeared this morning courtesy of our new staff member, Darin Hoopes. The concept for this is that we will provide a weekly roundup of what's happening in "the Real World". We plan to ask different RSL supporters to contribute for this each week so that we can get varied perspectives on the State of our Team. Again if you know of a particular RSL supporter that you think would be a good fit for this, or if you'd like to contribute yourselves, please email me at

As you can see we are starting to put more effort into unique content. There are other plans in the works, but this is dependant upon our limited resources (especially time). If you have any ideas or suggestions, we'd be glad to consider them. Right now, we are excited about these new editions.
