Work With Us

 

At TFG our goal is simple: give every female NFL fan a place to enjoy fun, sophisticated and topical content from sharp analysis to unique interviews to hard-hitting opinion columns and beyond. We don’t do pink and recipes. We normalize the female fan experience.

Freelance Writers/Contributors

We are always open to quality pitches that fit within our mission and tone. This is a wide space that could include anything from first-person commentary on some corner of football to fascinating profiles to features that marry football with society, culture or politics.  Any subject that particularly sings to female fans without being patronizing is a bonus.

Examples of what we’re looking for:

Former NFL Players Taking Political World By Storm

In this piece, the writer combed through the 2018 midterms to find every former NFL player that was running, including at the primary level. She delved into their platforms and interviewed a couple of nominees who deftly drew the connection between playing in the NFL and running for office. This piece resonated because it was well reported and provided a unique angle on the multi-layered story dominating the news cycle.

My Emotional Farewell to the Oakland Raiders

In this first-person essay, a longtime Raiders superfan and staple of “The Black Hole” gives us an emotional tick-tock of the what many thought was the Raiders last game in Oakland. His perspective could not be replicated by a reporter.

A Father and Daughter Hold Special Bond Over the Buffalo Bills

Another first person piece, this one illuminating how football can unite. The writer beautifully threads this article with anecdotes that showcase the special place a sport can hold in connecting two humans. This piece transcends the NFL because what the Bills represent for the writer and her father could be supplanted by another losing team in another sport, a television series or a random hobby that bonds another child and parent. The relatability is off the charts.
