Peter King Discusses The MMQB Debut; Could A Similar Hockey Site Work In Canada?
Published July 24, 2013
INSIDE SCOOP: King appeared on ESPN Radio's "Mike & Mike" yesterday and said one of the first things posted on The MMQB was Cowboys coach Jason Garrett's full 35-minute pre-training camp speech. King said, "I wanted to kick it off with something that people have never seen before and I wanted to take people inside the inner sanctum of a team. We did that. Those the kinds of things we're going to try to do most of all" ("Mike & Mike," ESPN Radio, 7/23).
RULER OF YOUR DOMAIN: USA TODAY's Chris Strauss notes the URL MMQB.com, which "focuses on 'The Business of the Contract Furnishing Industry,'" on Monday featured a screen grab from King's site "with 'Really dude?' written over it." MMQB.com Editor Michael Wolf wrote in an e-mail regarding The MMQB, "Through a third party they wanted to pay $1,500 for the domain name about two months ago. I countered at $1 million. That was it" (USA TODAY, 7/23).
