Football season is here! It’s time to get to work!
The Fanteractive fan “toolkit” gives you all of the tools you need to share your expert analysis on your favorite teams. As the season kicks off, here is a brief summary of how to use Fanteractive.com’s various tools to help you show what you know!
The various Fanteractive modules provide fans with standard forms to benchmark their teams and allow fans to easily compare their thoughts and expectations with others. Who are the most knowledgeable fans? You will easily be able to figure that out too! Everything you do on Fanteractive contributes to your own personal rankings too! Are you ready to start your own Hall of Fame career?
All Fanteractive tools let you go as in-depth as you want to, so you can answer what you know and leave whatever you don’t. Each piece you do also ties to your own personal profile page where others can see everyone of our analyses. It’s Sports … According to You!
On your favorite team’s homepage (under Teams on the main navigation bar), you can click on Season Outlook to lock in your expectations for the team’s upcoming season. Season Outlook allows you to break down the various position groups, strengths and weaknesses, the coaching staff and more! You also get to set the expectation on the team’s record for the season – this gives you something to look back to at the end of the year and see how well the team actually met your expectations! The Season Outlook module opens up about 30 before the start of the season and closes after the first couple of weeks to lock in the results.
The PVA Fanalyzer
Whether you are a betting man or not, the PVA Fanalyzer provides a structured way for you to record your expectations for each game by predicting not only the score, but also analyzing various stat categories and providing your commentary before the game to publish a full game preview.
After the game, the PVA Fanalyzer will match your predictions against the actual results of the game. This will allow you to see how well you did at predicting the action and also how well the team met your expectations! You can also see how well your predictions match up against other fans in our weekly and season-long leaderboards!
You can also organize a “Fanalyzer Huddle” with friends to create a new way to enjoy the season. Unlike fantasy football, where you have to follow players from all over the league, Fanalyzer and the Fanalyzer Huddles allow you to concentrate on the teams and players you know best!
We all know that the real watercooler conversation happens after the game! So, Fanteractive’s Post-Game Review gives you a standard form to break down the game and grade the team’s performance in offensive, defensive and other categories so that you can compare your impressions of the game with others. You can also grade individual player performances – who was the hero of the game or the real “goat” – as well as selecting your game MVP!
In October, you will be able to utilize Fanteractive’s Trending Analysis tools to be able to see the patterns that emerge for each team and also individual player performance. These Post-Game Reviews will also help to determine the finalists for the Fanteractive Player of the Year award – as determined by the fans (more to come on this in a few weeks as we formally announce the program).
How good is that player really? Fanteractive’s Player Scouting tools allow you to grade players like professional scouts do! Use the Fanteractive rating scale to grade players on the skills and attributes relevant to their position. How strong is a quarterback’s arm? Is he accurate? What about the running back’s change of direction ability?
Fanteractive was built on the premise that there are plenty of knowledgeable fans out there – including many that even have a better eye for talent than the pros! Here is the way to show the world what you think!
How many stadiums have you been to? Want a medal for it? Use Fanteractive’s Stadium Ratings tool to track all of your stadium visits, grade the stadiums, arenas, and ballparks, share your pictures, and rate them all! Compare various stadiums and see who others rate as the top stadiums too. Best of all, earn badges and other awards for your travels! You can earn a Bronze medal for just five visits to any NCAA or NFL stadiums, a Silver medal after 15 visits, and a Gold medal for visiting 25 college or pro stadiums.
Just like Bleacher Report or SB Nation, you can write articles on just about anything you want! Fanteractive’s articles section includes Fanager-submitted articles on a variety of topics to keep people informed and share your unique perspectives!
