The Community Trap: Joga.com vs. SoccerBlog.com

At first glance I have no chance.

How can my puny soccerblog.com site take on the likes of Joga.com from Nike + Google?

Answer: It doesn't have to.

Joga.com from Nike + Google is too commercial, period. So it's no contest.

Communities have to be open - in spirit and intent. They cannot exclude players, teams, or participants. I'm sure Nike + Google will learn. Until then, I'm having fun!
