Please help me name a long form sports journalism aggregation site
October 15, 2012 7:08 PM   Subscribe

I am thinking of creating a blog that focuses on longform journalism about sports and I need a name. Any ideas?

I know Sportsfeat was out there for a few months, and I actually contributed a few sports stories to longform.org before they created that site.

So, I want to create a site where I post links to long form sports journalism.

I am stumped as to a name. Some ideas I had were:

thedeepgame.com
asportingmatter.com

I prefer a .com domain, but if the name is striking enough, a .net or .org is definitely on the table.

Thanks!

I risked my employment by typing thelongball.com into my work computer, but it would be MY first choice.

You know about Quickish, right? In any case, avoid names with quick or ish.

Well, I guess I'll never get to use it, so here's the name I've always had in mind for just such a publication: The Journeyman.

It's been done.

acidic, I know and love Quickish. Dan Shanoff does post longform stuff on occasion, but the site's focus is mostly Twitter and blog reactions from experts to the latest events.

Something with 'long game' might be another option, but I'm at least partially posting here so that I'll see your 'Hey, I started the site!' comment in my Recent Activity.
