Just a few years ago Rivals was one of the leading fan communities on the internet, built on a firm independence for editors and contributors that centred around the message boards of the sites.

So successful was it that Rupert Murdoch’s BSkyB bought it in 2007. Shortly afterwards a long overdue revamp of the site did not have the intended outcome. Rather than encouraging editors and contributors it lead to deep resentment over changes made without consultation that weren’t even working when the site went live.

If you are or were a contributor to the Rivals site and want to bring yourself, and your opinions to Vital then please contact me at the following link.

Keep your eyes peeled for the Vital revamp (head over to the Premier League sites to see what’s in store).
