"Editor Doub" is now a writer at Sports Illustrated

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • All,
    I wanted to send out my sincere congratulation to a good friend and .NET legend Doug Farrar who today announced he's been offered a position with Sports Illustrated. He's one of the best and I can't think of a more deserving sports writer than he.

    Congrats Doug! .NET owes you a lot for the blood, sweat, and tears you gave to this place, so it makes us extremely proud that the time and effort ultimately lead to a dream job for you. Mazel Tov!

  • Congrats, Doug! Does this mean he's leaving Yahoo, or that he'll be doing both?

    Yes, I believe he's leaving Yahoo and going SI full time.

    Yes, an inside joke from many, many years ago where someone responded to one of Doug's Scout articles with brimstone & fire by addressing it to "Doub". It just stuck from there.

  • Good for him. I know for awhile he still worked his day job but that must have been before Yahoo and him having full access to the Seahawks draft and covering the team? I know he did a few of the combines while still working his former job, which I am guessing has long been a distant memory.

    Best temper those expectations some, then. Doug's pretty bias-free, overall. ;)

    I do bet he drives the Shutdown corner fans crazy with all his Seahawks articles. Or maybe it just seems that he and others have produced quite a few Seahawks articles since he started having access to the organization.

  • We knew each other pretty well back in the early incarnations of .Net circa early 2000's, and I was always so impressed with his encyclopedic knowledge of not only his beloved Seahawks, but the NFL and MLB. He was, and I assume still is a big M's fan. I pm'd him several times telling him how great I thought his writing was and that I knew he was gonna make it as a professional sports writer. Turns out my crystal ball was accurate. Met him at a couple get-togethers and he's a hell of a nice guy. Congrats Doug! I look forward to more of your articles and your continued success! :229031_cheers:

  • Doug and I used to take road trips to Cheney when the Seahawks were still holding their training camp over there under Holmgren. 5 hours in a car each way. That was a lot of time to saturate myself with the incredible football and sport mind that is Doug Farrar. Any past, current and future success is well deserved.
