The Return of Reads Listens Views?

If you’re new to the Rookie Scouting Portfolio blog, welcome.  Until last December, I used Fridays to post links to pieces that I’ve found personally compelling or to content I haven’t read yet. I moved last spring and I had a lot adjustments to make, including finding an adequate way to build and maintain a growing library of college game games. I had to drop something from my schedule and it mean Reads Listens Views was the first to go.

Now that the 2015 Rookie Scouting Portfolio is available for download and Eric Stoner is contributing content to the blog, I’ll take RLV out of mothballs. It may not be a weekly post like it was, but it will be back in some capacity.

You may not like everything listed here, but you’re bound to like something.

Friday’s are also my chance to thank you for reading my work, encourage you to follow the RSP blog, and download the Rookie Scouting Portfolio publication.

 If you’re in a dynasty league, the combination of the 2015 RSP and the RSP Post-Draft will have you prepared for this year and beyond.

Here’s just a sample of what my readers–new and old–are saying about the 2015 RSP.  (Get ready for “Squee!” “Dammnits” and Jaws Dropping)

Take a video tour of the 2015 pre-draft to see what I mean:

Seriously, this analysis is worth the price of the 2015 RSP package alone, but you also get the post-draft addendum with your purchase of the RSP. Remember 10 percent of each sale is donated to Darkness to Light to prevent sexual abuse in communities across the United States. While that alone should get you to download the RSP package, do it because you will be blown away with the detail and insight of the analysis and content. It’s why the RSP has grown so much in the past 10 years.

If you didn’t like Joan Jett from above, you’ll surely scratch your head about this treatment below, but if you imagine you never heard the original when listening to this version below, you might see how good lyrics and melody can transcend the arrangement.
