I am a 1-man shop so it is impossible for me to manage all aspects of the application myself and keep up with player status changes and such. So my idea is to recruit one website for each NFL team (maybe a popular forum or blog) and make them an offer: They maintain player information about their team through my application, including things like:
- Depth Charts
- Player Status (suspensions, being cut, etc)
So a few questions:
- Are there any similar arrangements in existence today which I would possibly model this on?
- Would this be a fair trade of services? Should I also require a link back to my site?
- Ultimately I want to charge for some features, but would it be ill-advised to charge for features which are provided by these 'partner' sites?
