Citizen Sports

With technology literally by their side, sports fans are spearheading the movement toward on-the-go news outlets. For those enamored with trash talk, rumors and gossip, Citizen Sports drives the conversation by combining sporting events with social networking. In conjunction with Yahoo! Sports, the site's main fix is its Citizen Sports hub, which grants subscribers a customized homepage bar with news on their favorite teams. The company's free iPhone application, Sportacular, allows fans to share their opinions via predictions and comments for upcoming games. Users can also dive in to social waves like March Madness or fantasy soccer, and keep in touch with friends and foes in the online community.

The classics: ESPN, CBS Sports, Fanhouse,,
