Editorial Staff

Bryan Rose, editor

Editor of A Royal Pain, former editor of Around The Foghorn, all of which where I'm paid in gum. Yes, I was the one who shot 50 Cent nine times, and yes, it ain't no fun if the homies can't have none, especially when you don't include a unicorn in the festivities. Am I right, or am I right? Work featured on New York Times, Sports Illustrated, Deadspin and more. Contact: aroyalpain(at)hotmail.com or at @NotoriousEZE.

About FanSided

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 a network of over 290 fan-powered unique sports and entertainment 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.

Executive Team
