Zone Sports Media Launches GamedayInactives.info

Fantasy Football Injury Website WhosHurt.com Restructured to Provide Simple Game Day Information

RICHMOND HILL, GA--(Marketwire - September 26, 2007) - WhosHurt.com, a popular fantasy football injury website since 2004, has been restructured and went live today as www.gamedayinactives.info, the website's owners reported.

"We made the decision to remodel the site because we want to make things easy for our customers and give them what they really want," said Andy Jennings, who, along with his brother Brandon, founded whoshurt.com prior to the 2004 season.

"It became apparent over the past three seasons," Jennings added, "that with the impact computers and the internet have made on how fantasy football is played, it's no longer necessary to track player injuries all week long. There was a time when you had to turn in your lineups on Friday. Now, players just log on to the internet and do it at 12:30 on Sunday. All they really need to know is the final word on who's playing and who's not."

Jennings also added that pro football's recent rule change allowing teams to wait until Friday to report the status of injured players (Out, Doubtful, Questionable, Probable) creates further ambiguity during the week and makes Sunday's final decisions more critical.

Users of GamedayInactives.info will be provided a menu of the week's games, and by clicking the link they can quickly see the list of all key players who are placed on the team's inactive list for that game, giving final answers to the questionable playing status of the several "Game Time Decisions" that inevitably surface every week. This list is provided to league officials by each team's coaching staff at least 90 minutes prior to kickoff. Within 30 minutes, the information generally makes its way to television and radio reports. But waiting for these broadcasts and flipping channels back and forth can be a frustrating process for a fantasy owner that needs some quick information.

GamedayInactives.info plans to make this process much easier for the fantasy owner by providing just what they need.

"On Sunday mornings when you are submitting your lineup," said Jennings, "I think it's safe to say that less is more. We'll have a straightforward menu of games, and as soon as we get the information, it's immediately posted. It starts filtering in about 11:45 am ET. All you do is click your mouse one time, and there it is. It is an incredibly simple and user-friendly interface."

A membership to the site will cost $3.95 for one game week, or $19.95 for access through the end of the 2007 regular season. Although other websites have started offering some of this information, packaged with other weekly data at various price points, Jennings feels that fantasy owners will flock to his site because of the convenience and no-frills approach. "Fantasy sites today are bursting at the seams with information, and it's gotten to the point of overload. Our approach is to keep it really simple, and we believe that users will appreciate that."
