I know sports and I know movies. That's really about it. I write and teach film, and I write and talk sports. If anyone remembers Ken Levine, who wrote award-winning sitcoms while doing play-by-play for major league baseball teams -- well, he's kind of my idol. I'm a lifelong suburban Washngton, DC resident, so I also fancy myself a political expert. But let's not talk about that.

Tim Payne,Contributor

Lifelong Redskins Fan. Learning to say Commanders. My wife and I are proudly raising three Burgundy and Gold fans while in exile in Dallas. Having lived all over, my fandom in other sports is pretty eclectic (GS Warriors, Texas Rangers, Colorado Buffaloes, Dallas Mavericks, PGA, FC Dallas) but my loyalty to the B&G has not and will not waver. Players, owners, execs and coaches come and go, but true fans never waver. #HailToTheDubs

Josh Taylor,Contributor

I'm a lifelong Washington Commanders fan that grew up being a fan of the team in Central Virginia. I discovered my passion for sports media and content creating when I started my own Washington Podcast in the Summer of 2018. I've studied scouting and evaluating college players, as well as covered the NFL Draft and Senior Bowl since 2020. I host a NFL Draft and College Football podcast on the Takeover Sports Network called "The Draft Takeover".

Sammy is studying Data Analytics at American University, in Washington DC. Sammy loves all DC Sports, but football holds a special place in his heart.

About FanSided

The idea of 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 the creation of FanSided in 2009, a network of over 300+ fan-powered unique sports, entertainment and lifestyle 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.
