    The font for the Pack/Eagles review I cannot read. It's too harsh for my eyes.
    The font for Pack/Bills is much easier.

    Other than that I like your style.

    Please indent your paragraphs. It's hard to read that wall of text.

    I know you pressed enter, but don't forget to indent...

    the articles read were pretty good, but you need to change the font on the second paragraph. A general tip is use only two legible fonts, and think of what your product is and whether people with trouble seeing can read it.

    I noticed the poor font after I wrote it the first one, but it wouldn't let me go change the font. The others though will use the font I had for my latest article. Thank you though.

    Nice article. I definitely see a future of writing for a respectable website or 2. :)

    Very good content! I enjoyed reading that very much and look forward to reading more of your material. So many writers are going into the internet anymore so this is the media for you! Try double spacing between your paragraphs if it will let you, some sites are terrible with the limitations they place on formatting texts. I personally didn't have any trouble reading it. I serif font is always best, you got that! You got the content and writing skills, I say it's first and goal for you!

    You should make an account on bleacher report, and start copying your articles there and get followers. It would be a nice thing to put on your resume if you get some awards over there.

    Post a link to one of your articles on there and i'll become a follower.

    Don't take this the wrong way. I'm just trying to give some constructive criticism. The article was kind of dry, kind of repeating facts. It would be nice to have some human interest in the story to make it a little less like your reciting facts. I realize that's hard to do without interviewing players, but that's my take.

    Good work

    It might just be my eyes buggin, but I think You lose readability of the text by placing such a light coloured font on a light background colour. I'd darken the background as the text looks faded there and kind of blends into the background, so to distinguish the test from the background to make it pop. Or possibly "bold" the text?
