    Default Is Intermat next?

    Interesting story from MediaWeek about SI and ESPN buying up niche-sport Web sites. It made me wonder if we'll ever see Intermat on ESPN?

    Intermat is already a "partner" with ESPN.
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    They are gay lovers I guess. Civil unions aren't legal yet!

    ESPN.com uses the Intermat rankings and some of the stories I believe.

    "Affiliate"

    Which means ESPN.com runs the InterMat rankings each week, and that's about it.

    Does Intermat get any money from that? I'm trying to figure out if you're going to be a rich man, Dart. According to Big, that's all women care about anyway.

    I'm a sportswriter, thus, I'll never be rich.

    The affiliate thing is a way to ensure that ESPN.com covers wrestling and runs its rankings, just like they do with other sports that don't have AP polls and such.

    I may not be rich, but I definitely do something I love. WOO HOO!

    And, as a person who works for a Catholic school, I understand that completely. That is the most important thing.

    First of all....Dart would need to OWN Intermat to make the cash. However, he is a member of the small NWCA....so maybe he gets a cut of that?

    So I guess ESPN.com runs the rankings, but if they wanted to exercise more of their "affiliate" relationship on Intermat...what could they technically do? Go extreme on the hypothetical.
    I wish I could kick Matt Dragon in the balls. In his Dragonballz.
