We get titanic as industry giant Evan Silva, the senior football editor of Rotoworld, joins us for the 18th episode of the podcast. Evan takes a look back at his own beginning and explains why the industry looks much different now than it did in those days. Through the layers of our discussion Evan reveals why he takes some of the approaches he does and what he looks for in other writers. Highlights from this episode include: - How a good amount of pestering led Evan to get his foot into the door at Rotoworld. Why Evan is always willing to boost other writers up and never hesitates to share good work. - The importance of podcasts and constantly consuming information in a convenient way. - A discussion on whether there should even be a war between film and metrics analysts, or if the two sides are better off together. - Evan's thoughts on DFS and whether the money or the puzzle it creates is the true appeal behind the game.
