New Beat Writer in NY Jets Forum Posted November 8, 2014 Jets fans, Good afternoon, my name is Connor Hughes. Informally introducing myself, I am a recent hire by About.com and employed as the site's New York Jets beat writer. Before hopping on the Jets beat, I covered both high school sports and the New York Giants. Over the last few weeks, I've been looking to interact and meet Jets fans in order to get a better understanding of the information they want. At the end of the day, how good I am at my job is based off of writing and creating content that you, the fans, want to read. With New York, I'm fully credentialed and at each practice, game and any other team function. I've reached out to a few message boards to informally introduce myself, and let fans know that if there is every a story you want told, question you want answered or anything in between, please do not hesitate to reach out. I can be reached via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or on twitter @Connor_J_Hughes. If you like, you can check out the site, too. NYJets.about.com. My door is open, so if there is anything you'd like to know regarding the team, please do not hesitate to ask. Thanks, Connor Hughes Appreciate the reach out. I personally haven't posted on the blog for a while because the Jets have made me sick this year. But I feel like many Jet fans have become frustrated with the beat writers like Manish and Cimini is because their writing seems to have an agenda. A sarcastic tone that seems to say "I told you so." It's frustrating and hard to read. I think generally we all want stories that are unbiased accounts of practices and games and features on the players and the front office so we all know more about them. I don't mind you bashing the Jets either, because they definitely deserve it at times, but all I ask is make a well formatted argument that provides solid points/examples.
