The Fighting Cock

As the title obviously suggests, The Fighting Cock is a community for all things Tottenham Hotspur Football Club. Run by fans, for the fans, The Fighting Cock provides an alternative to mainstream football media, catering for what supporters want.

There are plenty of different sections to the site, one of which provides articles written from a fans perspective about various aspects of what’s going on at the club. The site can provide a platform for young or unpublished writers to have their voice heard and work seen by like-minded individuals.

The site is mainly known for its podcast, which started out as a group of fans that just want to talk about Spurs. Often the sound of beer cans being opened can be heard, and you can tell that they are just passionate fans that want to promote the voice of the supporter being heard-in an age where it often isn’t.

Another prevalent feature of The Fighting Cock is the forum it hosts. A mostly positive thing, allowing discussion, but unlike the forum of a smaller club that I mentioned last week, with a much higher volume of users, it can be difficult to moderate. Overall, however, it adds to the promotion of the supporter’s voice mattering, and that’s good enough for me.

  1. I like how this online community lets young writers publish for the site because it gives younger, less experienced writers an opportunity. Also I think this is a good example of an online community because people’s opinions do matter on the site, like you meantioned thats good because online most opinions get disregarded.
