Stripe Hype seeks new writers, Bengals fans


Stripe Hype has held a steady place as FanSided’s home for Cincinnati Bengals coverage dating back to when the site was first launched in December 2007. This team’s roster has seen plenty of changes in that time frame and so too has the roster of writers here on site. There’s a lot of history on both sides, both with this franchise and our efforts to write about it.

Despite the changes, there has always been one constant with regards to our goals here: to give you folks, our readers, the very best Bengals discussion that we possibly can.

Consider yourself a passionate fan? Read us or other Bengals sites with regularity and ever wonder if you should write about the team too? Maybe you’re just stumbling across us for the first time and you like what you see. We are looking to add to our staff here on site and this could be your chance to step off the bench and join the team.


We like to let our staff write about the aspects of the team that they are most passionate about. Like dissecting a defensive scheme? Want to weigh in on a new signing or the roster construction? Have an opinion on a free agent the franchise should go after? Maybe you just want to chip in on game reactions, look back at the team’s draft successes, or any number of other potential story ideas that could relate to this team.

Writers are asked to contribute a minimum of 1-2 posts per week. We’ll always welcome more frequent contributions, but we won’t require it.

We know that for the most part this is primarily a hobby and something you do for the love of it. That’s why we do it too. Most of us have families, full-time careers, and/or school to balance into our lives as well. This is an opportunity to join a staff of writers here who are simply passionate about the Bengals and want to continue to reach the rest of this great fan base.

Want to join us?

Applying is very easy. Head on over and complete an application. It’ll give you a chance to share some insight into your background (prior online writing experience is not necessary but always encouraged) and let us know why you’d be a fit on site, so give your best. We’ll be in touch from there.
