Austin Lloyd,Contributor

I’m 22 years old, and the biggest sports fan I know. Whenever I have a moment to think freely, sports (predominantly football) is where my mind goes. I can be pretty opinionated, but I do so with facts, not feelings. If I feel strongly enough about a hot take, I’ll have you believing it too.

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.
