A look at what the media, web, blogosphere and, most importantly, the community are saying about BallHyped.com:

Some of BallHyped.com’s best takes, as reported by the biggest names in sports media …

ESPN Radio:

BallHyped News’ post on LeBron James was featured on “All Night With Jason Smith” on June 10, 2011, following the Miami Heat’s Game 5 loss to the Dallas Mavericks. BallHyped News’ illustration of “The King” was “The LeBron James picture of the night,” according to Smith. Listen to the segment.

SI.com:

“Ballhyped took out their calculators and figured out which sports franchises have the lowest winning percentage over the past 30 years. Amazingly enough, the Clippers couldn’t even win this battle of the losers. That honor goes to the Memphis Grizzlies.”

NYTimes.com:

BallHyped.com points out that the Eagles could have been penalized for having players leave the sideline and enter the field before [DeSean] Jackson scored on his game-winning punt return against the Giants.”

Deadspin.com:

“It’s still an understatement to say I’m ashamed of the city in which I live because of this.”

Yahoo.com:

“The new wrinkle on Jackson’s return was first noticed at BallHyped.com. Because he took a turn at the 6-yard line instead of running into the end zone, a number of his teammates and some coaches spilled out onto the field in anticipation of his touchdown, which didn’t come until a few seconds later. A flag could have been thrown, bringing back the touchdown and sending the game to overtime.”

Philly.com:

Credit Ball Hyped for first noticing, this has been a hot issue after Jets strength coach Sal Alosi tripped the Dolphins’ Nolan Carroll in Week 14. All 32 teams were sent a memo detailing sideline guidelines.”
