What you can expect from Fear the Sword moving forward

A quick update post All-Star break.

NBA: Washington Wizards at Cleveland Cavaliers David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

Hey there, Fear the Sword readers. I hope you’re enjoying this season, at least as much as you can. The reason you are the best is because you love the Cavs even though it can be really hard to watch on some nights, and the whole staff appreciates you sticking with us.

Today, I’m reaching out to give you an idea of what you can expect from us going forward. Due to some behind the scene changes I won’t get into, we are going to be publishing things a little bit differently moving forward. Most notably, starting with last night’s Cavs-Suns game, we are doing away with the traditional recap. Instead, our game coverage will come via two-for-ones only with some other analysis on a game-to-game basis. This is not a permanent policy, but considering you can get a recap of the game via a push notification, we want to give you something more unique in your game content.

Additionally, you’ve likely noticed that Fear the Sword publishes a lot — and I mean A LOT of podcasts — now. There’s Locked on Cavs, hosted by me. There’s The Chase Down, from Justin Rowan and Carter Rodriguez. And most recently, we launched The Bottom!, from myself and David Zavac and Thick, Jacked Frames from Trevor Magnotti, as part of a Fear the Sword-operated podcast feed. Again, that is a whole lot of podcasts.

It is not lost on me that this is a blog first and foremost. I don’t ever want to lose sight of that. I take that seriously as someone who believes in the craft of writing more than anything and someone who wants to do that more than anything. So, while these many podcasts will keep being published and are great opportunities for our staff, we are going to place them in the podcast section that will be pinned to the front page and use the top slots of the site for written things. And with the changes to game coverage, my hope is that there will actually be more writing — and more fun, creative and weird writing — than there has been so far this season. Cup of Cavs will also become an actual thing with myself (and others, when I am out for a day job thing/on my honeymoon this summer, etc.) posting that every morning as opposed to the sporadic trial thing it’s been so far.

Lastly, I just want to say thank again to everyone here, whether you are a regular commenter or someone who just pops in every once in a while, who helps makes this a positive place to talk about the Cavs. It’s a privilege for me to run this site after David and Conrad did excellent jobs in making it what it is and doing all of the hard work.

As always, you can reach out to me directly at christopherwmanning@gmail.com any time with questions/comments/concerns. And below, I’d love to hear what you all want to see from us and perhaps share some of the things you’ve actually enjoyed so far this season.

Thanks for reading, as always.
