3rd Degree

is creating independent coverage of soccer in North Texas.



About 3rd Degree

3rd Degree is the independent soccer news source for North Texas.  Founded in 1997 by Buzz Carrick. After eight years partnered with the Dallas Morning News (2012-2019) and two with ESPN/Dallas (2010-2011), we are again on a standalone platform.

I've covered soccer in the Metroplex for 22 years now with a focus on FC Dallas through the 3rdDegree.net blog, podcast, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Youtube channel.  Coverage includes MLS, USL, US Developmental Academy, NPSL, MASL, and other North Texas soccer products.

I work in a freelance career and 3rd Degree has become a significant undertaking.  What started as a hobby has - through hard work and a quality group of people helping - turned into a team producing quality FC Dallas focused soccer content. 

Can 3rd Degree and soccer coverage in North Texas someday be a career? I don't know. Your support through Patreon could move us down the road in that direction.

I hope you find our content worth supporting.  I believe the quality of our work is top-notch and professional. I'm quite proud of what we do.

Hopefully, you agree enough to join us as a patron.

The first goal, hopefully of many. 100 patrons. The first step... ok 2nd step - the first was making this patreon page - on the road to independent, full-time FC Dallas and North Texas soccer coverage.  Let's do this.
