My own personal Deputy Dawg

I've been running Niners Nation for the past 3+ years, with an assortment of assistance provided by a variety of individuals.  We get our links from Ninjames, we get historical articles and the prediction contest from howtheyscored, we're now getting draft coverage from Drew K, and the list goes on and on and on (apologies to all that I've left out).

In May I finish up law school, at which point I'll begin studying for the bar exam, which I'll be taking at the end of July.  I'm not going anywhere, but there will be stretches of time where I could use some front page assistance.  For example, in March I'm heading to Mexico for a week at spring break.  I have no idea what kind of Internet access I might have, so it'd be helpful to have someone covering for me in case the Internet is going to be an issue.  Once we get to the summer, I'll have time to post, but not as much free time as I might prefer given that I'd kind of like to pass the bar.

So, given all these potential time obstacles, I wanted to begin a search for someone who could provide front page assistance on a regular basis beginning as soon as February.  In the past I've spoken with certain individuals about this and they didn't think they could make the potential time commitment.  I'm not looking for somebody to put in quite the kind of time I do, but there might be some stretches of time (a few days here and there) where I could another set of eyeballs covering things.

I pride myself on getting information out in a timely manner, and I want to make sure that keeps up over the next 6 or so months.  And depending on my job prospects at that point, I might need this kind of assistance for the foreseeable future.  I'm sure you're all rooting for me to be jobless so I can devote all my time to NN!

At this point I would actually prefer somebody who has shown a dedicated commitment to the site.  Maybe you don't post many FanPosts, but you're consistently part of the discussion.  I'll certainly consider newbies, but a tie would go to the site veteran.  I had thought about emailing people individually, but I figure this will get a better idea of interest in a much quicker fashion.  So, if you're interested, either email me directly at, or leave a comment here and I'll get in touch with you.  And if anybody has any questions or needs further clarification, feel free to comment or email.
