They’re looking for folks for pretty much any team. For an addict it would be quite fun. But $5 an hour?

  1. “Qualified candidates must be able to communicate utilizing proper grammar.”
    Such as:
    “This a remote position…” Isn’t there an “is” missing?
    and
    “We are seeking media members that are also passionate…” Shouldn’t that be “…who are also passionate…”?

    Maybe it was wrote by somebody on $5 an hour. 😉

  2. I am Alan Shearer and I hereby apply. My team is Newcastle Saudnited.

    “He wanted it more, Gary, he ran in behind, and he hit the back of the net.”

    I claim my five bucks.

  3. I’m assuming they’re looking for third world applicants with decent English. Clever really, if you can do it with call centres, why not sports reporting?

  4. “We require passionate fans of a particular team to communicate with your audience,”

    I’m just surprised they offering to pay $5/hour rather than charging. The supply of “passionate fans” must be virtually unlimited. They’re quite happy to pay through the nose for merchandising. So why not for access to a platform. In both directions.

  5. I’m guessing the supply of passionate fans who are willing to “follow instructions when provided” is rather lower.

  6. 90 mins play plus injury time. Write the first half report in the interval, 2nd half at the end. 2 hours work, $10. Someone might bite, but if your English is up to it, are there not better jobs, even in Shitholistan? And it’s more than likely they want you to watch on your own time, so actually $2.50.
