    Hi,
    Its interesting to note that many of the popular sports don’t have dedicated websites which appear in the list of “most popular sports websites”. (like volleyball, golf, etc.).

    cheers,
    JP

    Hey – great website, just looking around some blogs, seems a really nice platform you are using. I’m currently using WordPress for a few of my sites but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it?

      I have been always using wordpress as the blogging platform, which can be very powerful with thousands of plugins available. WordPress is still the one I recommend.

    Hi

    I would add priceform.com to the list of good sports sites. It has a crack team of writers and an excellent free on line monthly sports magazine Priceform Monthly (www.priceformmonthly.com)

    please add this website sportsmi.webs.com to your list it has sports news, scores of NBA,NFL,MLB,NHL, College Football and Basketball and lots more.

    Good solid sites in the list from massive companies but I prefer independent sports sites with a community and social feel. Would recommend http://www.football.co.uk for football/soccer news, live scores and some very good bloggers and writers.

    Great list. Would have been great if you had added if each site has the ability to add comments and if they’re do follow (Though that would be lazy) Any plans to expand the list soon?

    Great site btw- full of extremely usuful info, I’ve bookmarked you for future reference.

    Here is a cool website with loads of potential: http://www.sportspotter.com/ You can become a fan of up to 500 000 sports teams/competitions/players etc – similar to twitter where you follow stuff. You can upload photos, embed youtube videos, as well as comment within the feeds. There is also a mobile and iphone app. Looks like there is more to come as well. Check it out.

    HKJC.com is one of the largest web sites in Hong Kong. The Horse Racing section of this Hong Kong Jockey Club features very rich and intense dynamic content, including various horse/jockey/trainer/event related statistics, vet reports, track work videos and race replays, live audio on race meetings, a professional CEO blog with perspectives on each race, simulcast information and so on. You don’t need to click through into betting at all to enjoy racing as a sport – and that sets the site apart from some of its peers.

    This is a very useful site. But if this list can be extended to top 100 that would be great, since it would give good exposure to the lesser known websites.

    Another suggestion was categorizing sports websites and sports video websites in to separate lists.

    When you get a chance please visit http://www.vpsportscast.com and let me know what you think.
