With the highly anticipated NFL season just around the corner, we here at SideLion Report have decided that we would like to add a Detroit Lions writer to the team!

Do you consider yourself a passionate fan? Read us or other Detroit Lions sites with regularity and ever wonder if you should write about the team too?

Maybe you’re visiting the site for the first time, or never thought you’d be presented with an opportunity to cover the team that you love?

Well, now is your chance to suit up and join us at SLR!


SideLion Report is looking for creative and motivated individuals who would like to share their thoughts on the Detroit Lions with the rest of the world. From game previews, to recaps, player grades, team rumors and raw analysis, we cover it all.

Writers are asked to contribute 1-2 posts per week. We’ll always welcome more frequent contributions than that, but we won’t require it.

For most of us here at SLR, we write about sports as a hobby. And because we have a deep passion for the Detroit Lions franchise. Beyond football though, we all have families, full-time careers and/or school. We realize that everyone is busy with life, and has to prioritize as necessary.

On the other hand, our work is regularly featured on and Bleacher Report and many FanSided writers have gone on to work full-time in online media. FanSided hired over ten of its own writers recently and there are currently FanSided alums working at other major media outlets and with professional sports teams.
