Robert Sobus Jr.,Contributor

I graduated from Towson University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mass Communication in 2021. During my time at Towson I gained experience by covering Towson Tigers football games and men’s basketball games. I also covered politics and the police beat for The Baltimore Watchdog. I grew up in Baltimore, Md. I obtained a GED in 2013 before transitioning to community college. I graduated from the Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC) with an Associate of Arts degree in 2017 before attending Towson University to finish my college career.

Chris Cox,Contributor

Ever since the Ravens came to town, Chris can't get enough of them...or football in general. And though he trusts Eric DeCosta and John Harbaugh, he doesn't always agree with them. When Chris isn't writing about sports, he focuses on suspense and thrillers (writing as C. Thomas Cox). He lives with the love of his life and his two wonderful sons. When he's not playing baseball or basketball with his boys, he can often be found at the local lake attempting -- and often failing -- to catch a trophy fish.

William Pitts,Contributor

William Pitts has a Master's Degree in Journalism from Philip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland in 2019, and also received a Bachelor's Degree in Communications from Goucher College in 2018. Pitts is still going through a hangover from the St. Louis Blues' Stanley Cup win in June. Things that drive him crazy: Revenge beanballs, pace-of-play rules, delays due to instant replay, the idea of "players policing each other".

Steve Rudden,Contributor

Steve is the President and CEO of Rudd Productions, a new Production Company in the DC Area. A huge fan of the Ravens, Orioles, Nats, Caps, and Wizards.

Mervin Walls,Contributor

For as long as I’ve been a sports fan it has always felt as if my favorite teams were heavily underrated and overlooked by the national media. As a result, I create quality content on teams that may not dominate our national headlines. "...there's power in being out of the loop.."- Unknown Be sure to check out the Black and Gold Hour Podcast on Youtube.

About FanSided

The idea of FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn the creation of FanSided in 2009, a network of over 300+ fan-powered unique sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
