Matthew Fairburn leaving Syracuse.com for the Athletic

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Looks like he’s moving on from Syracuse.com.

 

I was always a fan of his work. He was a breath of fresh air compared to the jaded individuals at Buffalo News. He will be missed!

They posted for his position a week ago.  It’s very clear he left on good terms...likely for a better position.  Hopefully he’s still covering the Bills

He’s one of a couple Bills columnists that I respected and looked forward to reading his articles.  Really hoping to continue reading his Bills articles wherever he lands.

I like him but I could without the headlines like "seven takeaways" , "five things you need to know", "ten players on the bubble", etc...

Headlines are normally done by the editor, not the reporter.

Maybe we should 'reach out' to the editors about that?...(Christ, this journalism newspeak grates on my 5Ws nerves.)

....with the mass exodus, they better have a plan in place......maybe Roch-Cha-Cha's WHAM sends 'em Bobby "The American" Matthews.........for a 2037 7th round conditional...

Be a hella coincidence if he isn't going to TBN.

Makes too much sense.  I get the sense TG mentored these young guys, and would like him to get the gig.

as long as he does not have to compromise his methods.

Is it because they drafted Josh Allen??

So when the reporters hands his editor articles that are actual, lists such as "seven takeaways" and "5 things you need to know", etc. , what headline is his editor supposed to write?

Vogl: Seeking the best stories in the most unexpected places...

The goal of The Athletic is to go beyond the box score. It’s done with the reader in mind. It seemed like the perfect place to land.
 
I’m not alone. Kris Baker, who knows the Sabres’ prospects better than anyone, is onboard to keep you informed about the future players. Analytics are a huge part of hockey, and Ryan Stimson, who co-hosts and speaks at analytic conferences, will give context to the Sabres’ numbers.
 
A Buffalo site wouldn’t be complete without the Bills. Matthew Fairburn has quickly risen to prominence at One Bills Drive, and he’s determined to deliver the best information in the most interesting fashion. And Tim Graham will provide his award-winning, thought-provoking coverage for both teams.

Erik Turner from Cover1 for the Bills, and Kris Baker from SabresProspect on there as well. Wonder if their sites go away?
