Searching for Sports Info, 5 Tips for Finding a Reliable News OutletThe internet has definitely given people access to information more than ever before, which is quite exciting, but it does come with challenges. Finding a reliable source for sports news and info can be hard online because there are so many sites to choose from, making the whole thing a little overwhelming. The following are few tips to help you find reliable sources.

Established Sites

One of the easiest ways to find a reliable sports site is to find one that has been working for ages. Sites startup all the time, but the most reliable sites are the ones that have been up of years. Go to a site’s about page to find out how long the site has been up and compare the sites you are considering afterward.

Expert Websites

Specialized websites are another way you can find a great source for your sports. Try to narrow down your sources from the biggest to the most specialized.

      Because the role of the wide receiver has changed so much and today’s star receivers get the ball thrown to them so many more times than in the pre-1978 era, Warfield is often overlooked when discussing all-time greats.

      But, think about this. Warfield averaged 20.1 yards per catch for his career (427 receptions, 8,565 yards) and 19.9% of his receptions went for touchdowns (85). By comparison, Julio Jones has averaged 15.5 yards per catch for his career and a touchdown in 6.9% of his receptions (46 TDs in 669 catches). Antonio Brown averages 13.4 ypc and a TD in 8.7% (70 of 804) of his receptions. Terrell Owens averaged 14.8 ypc and a TD in 14.2% of his receptions. Even Jerry Rice, considered the greatest receiver of all-time, averaged only 14.8 ypc and a TD in 12.7% of his catches.
