In our third and final installment of Enhancing Your Experience, we take a look at the many ways to get your information and the easiest ways to voice your opinion.
The main sources of information about the team usually come from either the Buffalo News or the Sabres website. National media sources do on occasion break large stories about the team, but mostly the beat writers, John Vogl and Mike Harrington, have the pulse of the team down and get out all of the major news on a timely basis.
From there, the Sabres blogosphere takes that news and usually runs with it. There are a bunch of great sites out there to check out if you haven't already, The Goose's Roost, Willful Caboose, Top Shelf, Black, Blue, and Gold, among many others. There will always be many opposing opinions on the internet, if you read the comments here you would know that already, but hashing out your feelings about a team is what makes sports great.
Facebook and Twitter are great sources of information too. All of the writers of any particular site at least have a twitter page, you can find ours here, and others use Facebook to reach out and share links and opinions, our Facebook page is here.
Most fans like to voice their opinion about the team they follow. Its usually a rite of passage to call into a sports radio show, but the internet has made it so much easier these days to make your opinions heard. The easiest way to get your voice out there is to start your own blog. There are many great sites to do it that are free like Blogger and Wordpress, but there is one major hitch that comes with it. While it is easy to start a blog, its really hard to keep a good blog running. It takes a lot of time and commitment to do so to make it your opinion sound coherent and to get people to continually come back and read it.
If you don't want to do the work yourself, you could comment on other sites or you could use our handy FanPost function to get your message out to the world. Our handy fanpost guide is here.
