Rob Schwarz Jr,Site Expert

I am a loving husband and proud father of three children. I have two boys and a baby girl on the way. I have been a Chicago Bears fan since I was in middle school and became a die-hard Bears fan while in high school. My father is a season-ticket holder and therefore I am lucky enough to attend multiple home games a year. I have been writing about fantasy football for about five years and shifted to a local focus on the Chicago Bears and other Chicago teams in January of 2019. In the Spring, I took on the role of a paid site contributor for Da Windy City; a local FanSided sports page. As of October, I am now working as a Site Expert for Bear Goggles On; an NFL FanSided page dedicated to the Chicago Bears.

I started watching the Bears when Mike Ditka was still a player. Many years later I wrote a letter to the Bears organization listing many reasons why they should hire Mike Ditka as their head coach because their head coach at that time, Neil Armstrong, was incompetent as a head coach. I chose Ditka after using the profile Andrew McKenna used to hire Dallas Green as the Cubs manager. It was based on hiring someone who had as much experience as possible on championship teams. Years, later I used this same profile to identify Phil Jackson as the best choice to be the Bulls head coach. For over 10 years I have written and published blogs about the Bears and White Sox.

About FanSided

The idea of FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn the creation of FanSided in 2009, a network of over 300+ fan-powered unique sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
