As the coronavirus pandemic has swept over this country, like everyone else I have been wondering what I might do to help out.
I started by created a list of verified and highly credentialed follows on Twitter to assist in spreading the word. I have been talking to Facebook friends to try to do the same on a personal level. I have been helping a family member find his way to shelter in place for the duration and have been trying to find ways to help keep my wife and sons time occupied while we have been sheltering in place (we started a week and a half ago, as my youngest son is immunocompromised).
After taking care of all of those elements, I then thought about what to do with this website. At one level, football seems like a trivial subject to talk about when the world seems to be crashing down around us, but at another level it seems that talking about future endeavors is a way to remind ourselves that we will get through this one way or another.
It is best if we have as many positive reminders as possible, so I have decided that the Paydirt paywall will be taken down during the coronavirus lockdown. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, there will be 1-2 articles posted per week during this span. They may range from fantasy football to schematic reviews to interviews or even occasional audio elements, all posted with the idea of looking forward to the day when we have beaten this damn virus.
