Jason Mills, Contributor

Hi. I'm Jason Toronto born and bred, I am a huge sports fan particularly of the NBA and have spent the last year blogging and contributing articles concerning the NBA. As a Toronto native, I am super excited about all things Raptors and was over the moon about their first NBA Title. I have had the opportunity to see many Raptors games live including their first home playoff game against the New York Knicks way back in 2000. My personal biggest disappointment was having tickets to the Suns vs Raptors in 1998 (Kevin Johnson's last season)and not being able to go to the game because of a conflict with my work schedule. I know should have called in sick. Its been a blast the last 24 four years with the Raps from their starting play in the cavernous SkyDome (now Rogers Centre) til now. I am looking forward to the exploits of the Raptors in the next 24 years. It should be fun.

We aren't called FanSided for nothing. Our network of sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites are powered by fans that want to cover their passions! Whether you are just looking to get your start in online media or you want to contribute to your favorite site as a hobby, FanSided wants to hear from you.

Whatever your goal, FanSided can help your voice be heard. If you are interested in writing for any of our sites, please be sure to check out our openings page and submit a proposal.


The idea of FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn the creation of FanSided in 2009, a network of over 300+ fan-powered unique sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
