"Fearlessly Unapologetic Sports Fandom"
Our commitment is to provide a platform for fans, enthusiasts, and diehards to express their voices through written, audio, and video content. In doing this, we develop writers, podcasters, and broadcasters; providing them all with opportunities to advance either internally or externally.
Stadium Rant defines the ideal platform where sports, music, entertainment, and more collide, and our team members are provided the freedom to cover it their way.
Be the expert: Own your work. You know exactly who you are and what your fandom means to you. Be yourself and always place yourself as the expert on the topic you are covering.
Do whatever it takes: Understanding your role and ensuring that you uphold your duties are absolutes here. However, exceeding expectations and holding yourself to a higher standard than what’s expected will always reap benefits.
Be fearless: Our network prioritizes the ability to toe the line and find the most aggressive takes and rumors around the web. Being a part of Stadium Rant is not for the faint of heart or the average fan. Be aggressive and fearless in everything you do here and you'll be successful.
Be bold: Part of being the “expert” is believing in yourself and putting your genuine opinions, no matter how rash they may be, out there for debate. Take chances and always strive to provoke conversation.
Be creative: We work in the world of content. Two keys to success are speed and creativity. You may not be the first to a breaking news story, but you can absolutely win the creativity game. Selling your article and, especially, its title will make all the difference.
Be the best: At Stadium Rant, we are out to set a new standard for media coverage. What that means is that we are driven to do what others haven’t thought of or have tried and failed. As each of you push to be the experts in your work, so do we.
CODE OF CONDUCT
Now, to the most important part of this handbook - our code of conduct. We are incredibly proud and protective of the standards that our network lives by, so where we can live and correct content errors from time to time, repairing reputations are much more difficult.

Two large factors stand above most with regard to our content production - working as a team and our branding. We are an ever-growing network and any excessive negativity can stunt where we are and where we want to go. Behavior internally or externally that aims to disrupt the direction of Stadium Rant is grounds for immediate removal.
