SBI Reader Roll Call (2009 edition)


(Attention SBI Readers, this is a re-posting of a Reader Roll Call we started back in March. We are looking to fill out the group sample size for our demographic breakdown of the SBI Mafia. If you already included your information back in March, you don't have to do so again. If you missed the Roll Call in March, please continue reading.)

It is that time again. Time for all you SBI readers to take part in our SBI Reader Roll Call, a reader survey we use to help identify our demographics for advertisers and to see what areas of the sport we should be trying to cover more.

Thanks to you the first year of SBI was a rousing success, with more than 10 million page views for the year and readership from every corner of the globe and throughout the United States. 2009 is already shaping up to be even better, with SBI registering more than 1.1 million pageviews each of the first two months of the new year.

Now is your chance to let us know who you are, where you are from, and who you support. Here is a sample of what we would like you to submit your roll call information in the comments section:

Name (full name not necessary)–male/female–age–city/state/country(if not USA) you currently live in–clubs/national teams you watch (limit to five total)–when you started reading SBI

Also, please include your email address under the email section of the comment. Rest assured that email addresses placed there cannot be seen by the public and WILL NOT be given out to third parties for marketing purposes (As all the readers who submitted their emails in last year's roll call can attest). We are collecting an email list in order to eventually send out correspondences relating to SBI. If you still don't feel comfortable submitting your email on the website, you can send your roll call submission to
