Anyone have a list of active sports shorts comms? I was just trying to find some, but even [email protected] was barren.

    During Reddit’s APIcalypse, people made a bunch of Sports related communities to try and mirror Reddit’s experience, but we simply don’t have the user base here to support team-focused communities, so most of them just sit there. People ran game-day bots for a while, but then realized the poor bot was only talking to itself, and turned them all off.

    Fanaticus.social is trying to be what you want, so I would look there.

    We have a few (Canadian) ones listed in the sidebar or [email protected]

    The list never got completed however. I’ll check back on this post later maybe

      Thanks. I’m trying to get my brother over to lemmy. First thing he asked was, how’s the sports comms?

        Great to hear!

        Some of the communities are quiet, but you’ll find that people engage with your posts when you make them. Especially if there are a good number of subscribers for them

        You can also post on [email protected] or [email protected] if you’re reviving one, so that others can see

        Finally, if you’re in contact with the mods on Reddit for a particular team, see if they’d be interested in having the Lemmy community be the official off-site space for the subreddit. People that want to talk about the team without ads/tracking/annoying UI can come here for it

    Lemmy hates sports. I don’t know why. Maybe they’re all scared that the CLEVELAND GUARDIANS ARE TAKING THE MLB BY STORM!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

    No. I haven’t been drinking. Why do you ask?

        You’re either a fan of the blue jays, or you just found the video of the time Randy Johnson made a bird explode with his pitching. And I’m not sure which. I don’t speak hieroglyphs.

          I was laughing at your comment, showing a love of baseball, and poorly trying to show I’m a birds fan
