Writing about roller derby is a lot of fun, but most derby media has a short life span as it is hard to scale up beyond just free time. We want to increase the quality of writing on our site and open the platform up to more writers in our second year and the only way we can do that is if we start throwing money back at the derbyverse to writers, editors, photogs and coders. We've got a lot of ideas to bring cool new derby tools to you and to help building the derby stat rataissance, but we need you to help us get there. 

Funds will always be split 50% for the site / 30% for writers / 20% for photogs and we intend to post quarterly reports on the site lest anyone get the idea someone is getting rich off of derby.

We plan to offer some unique deals for patrons, but supporting the site also means ensuring that content remains open to everyone. Let's build this thing!

Unfamiliar with what we do? Here is a greatest hits collection:

Two words: Fantasy Derby. We want to build and host a bracket based online system where each week you can lock in picks and follow along (a la March Madness) and compete against each other. Be careful if we get to this amount because if you come at the King you best not miss.
