Henry is actively seeking a new Portland blog for his TrueHoop Network.
I remember checking in here when the issue was raised the last time, and the excuse was it couldn't be done because BE was already part of SBNation.
Could someone explain why exactly that is? BE is easily the best independent Blazers coverage on the net. My understanding is the TrueHoop thing is nothing more than a nod and a link. It's not like ESPN would gain any kind of ownership or functionality over the workings of Blazersedge. So what's the big deal? It's not like SBNation is going to run ESPN out of business by giving them the cold shoulder. Is ESPN the party against it? Are they really that sensitive?
It's not a huge deal. Henry still ends up linking to BE more than he has ever linked to 'Beyond Bowie', or whatever they had to settle for. It just seems like an opportunity that might generate a few more clicks, and be another feather in the cap for easily the best Blazers blog out there.
