Everyone loves a top 10 list so I decided to take a poll and generate a list with the top sites to help you in your quest of being the best sports executive possible.
There are many great sports industry websites out there in a variety of niches. Some are fan related, team related, blogs, videos, job boards, career resources, social networking, and beyond. Although there are too many great sites that are not included, feel free to add the sites that were most helpful to your quest over this past year. Here is what I found most useful in 2008:

I did not rank these from 1-10, and that may make some of you a little upset, but I decided to just give you my top 10 overall. Maybe next year I’ll put out a larger poll, get previous winners to vote like it’s the Heisman, and have a real #1. For now, however, feel free to include any additional sites that you think should have made the list, or at least be included as an honorable mention.
