Hi all,

Just wanted to let you know about the latest things going on at v2.

1. The v2Journal had its best month ever. Its full of great interviews and articles on all of your favourite sports. its also home to the v2 podcasts...

2. The v2 podcasts - we now have 4 regular shows (including a new weekly football show) which feature regular guest appearances from top sports stars. If you havent checked them out, you can find them at www.v2journal.com

3. Finally, we have teamed up with William Hill ahead of the new football season. They are offering v2 members a special introductory offer where they will match your first bet (see full T&Cs on the link below). If you are going to have a flutter, please do it through our link and help the forum secure exclusive future deals with William Hill.

I'm already a member at William Hill - am I eligible for the bet and is there any benefit to the forum for me clicking the link?

If you are already a member, unfortunately, it doesnt make much difference but thanks for the question.

They are interested in seeing if we can generate new members for them and return would offer us exclusives if we get enough numbers.

Yep. All sorted. Did a test record on audacity and played around with the editing at the weekend making an intro. We're doing another test before we record for real tomorrow. I think we're both recording it and I'll cut it together when I get his recording emailed to me.

That's fine mate. Just grateful you've given it an extra home.

Next weeks should be better. Glad the first one is done. We should have a 3rd host from next week.

Got this ready to listen to on the way home tonight - Adam sent me the link a couple of days ago but been too busy to get round to it! Don't have a very in depth NHL knowledge so hoping this will address that.

If you ever cover any British hockey and need an extra pair of hands I'd be happy to help out too!

It's not brilliant but it's our first effort. We don't go too in depth but I've only been watching for just over 3 years anyway and my knowledge isn't that great. It's mainly the minor league and CHL players I don't know too much about other than the top guys.

Would love to cover British hockey. I need to do a lot of research on it though. I can watch highlights on Sky and possibly go to Coventry games when I visit my Dad.

I'm talking to someone on another forum about joining as an extra host and you might think that's a good idea after hearing this later! Lol

It'll be a lot better when we have some actual hockey to talk about. 2 weeks until training camp!

I would recommend giving a bit of a write up to it each week, which I can post on the site.

Also - would you like a v2journal email address and make it a bit more official - you could then use that to approach guests?

I could do something like the football and A.football guys do. I think a v2 email address will be good. I appreciate all you've done so far.

Once the season is going I'd be up for writing some NHL stuff for the journal too. Obviously depending on number of listeners/posters on the hockey board here.

I've added a bit of a synopsis to the current show.

It's not as good as I hoped for, Azzy. This weeks should be much better.

Oh my Laugh

I might be able to join you in future weeks, I have a hectic fortnight starting now ending with a cricket match on 14 September - after that life becomes somewhat normal. I'd certainly be able to chip in with some journal writing (I've mentioned it to Adam before). By the way, who's the Oiler fan you have on the podcast?

He's called Junaid Hussain. We know each other from twitter. He writes NFL and some NHL for 1am Sports.

This week we're doing the Atlantic, then Central next week and if you're free around the 17th/18th/19th we'll be doing the Pacific that week which you probably know more about than me and my East coast bias.

Probably do a training camp/preseason/any injuries review on the 25th and then we'll probably record our first show of the regular season the day after opening night.

Starting to write my review of the NHL offseason over the weekend coinciding with training camp starting on Wednesday and preseason starting next weekend.

When it's done who should I send it to for a decision to publish it or not?
