Jeter Announces New Player-to-Fan Website, “The Players Tribune”

Jeter

Derek Jeter ended a 20 year Yankee career on Sunday.  At 40 years old, he’s been a Yankee Shortstop for half of his life, one of the most scrutinized jobs on Earth.  You’d think maybe a week’s vacation would be in order?

Na, Jeter tried the retired life on Monday.  It was boring.  So he started a media company yesterday.

“Introducing The Players’ Tribune, a new media platform that will present the unfiltered voices of professional athletes, bringing fans closer to the games they love than ever before. Founded by Derek Jeter, The Players’ Tribune aims to provide unique insight into the daily sports conversation and to publish first-person stories directly from athletes.”

From what it sounds like, Derek and his team are attempting to cut out “the middle man,” in this case the media, who so often fabricate controversy in the TMZ age of media.  Check out Jeter’s first post here.  Its worth reading.

The Players Tribune sounds awesome and I can’t help but see some parallels to WPW.  Our goal here, and I’ve said it before, is and will always be to cut out the marketing bullshit.  To eliminate the fluff.  So as a site with a similar philosophy, I really hope The Players Tribune succeeds.

P.S. Jeets, if you’re listening, I know of this great gear website that your readers would love (wink, wink).
