Chad Dotson founded Redleg Nation in 2005. He did it to create an independent site for obsessive and civil discussion of the Cincinnati Reds. Thirteen years later, we’re proud to say RN is going strong: still independent, civil and definitely obsessive.
Once a year, we make a case for you to support the site, based on the value you receive from it. This is that time.
In calculating that value, think of the daily content the site offers: feature posts; previews and recaps for every game; minor league updates; spring training coverage; analysis of the club, manager and front office; Reds history; podcasts; and the occasional bit of humor.
Redleg Nation helps keep you up-to-date with the ever-changing world of professional baseball and the Cincinnati Reds.
For that, we ask your support, once a year.
Here, you’ll find no advertising. No pop-ups. No auto-video loads. No profanity. No personal attacks. Just the peaceful, unadulterated sound of people discussing the Reds. We don’t make a penny off the number of clicks, views or visitors. That’s a highly unusual internet practice these days. We limit the fundraising campaign to about one week. Those are our choices.
We make it easy to donate. You don’t have to fill out a membership form or join anything. You don’t have to go to a separate fundraising site. We use a simple PayPal account, but you don’t need one to donate, a credit card will do.
Click the yellow DONATE button in the sidebar. It takes a minute or less.
As in the past, we’ll recognize your contribution for a year. The supporter list has tiers based on contribution level, but any amount is welcome:
- Home Run ($25)
- Grand Slam ($50)
- All-Star ($100)
- Hall of Fame ($150+)
The start of the baseball season is a time to renew our love of baseball and familiar bonds to the Reds. We hope Redleg Nation has become one of those connections for you. Thanks again, for reading and commenting.
