The DBB Pledge Drive! May 2-6, 2022!

| May 6th, 2022

DBB has never had content behind a paywall. It’s just not something I believe in, even as the digital sports marketplace changes dramatically. But this site has remained my signature literary passion for the last 17 years and there ARE costs associated with keeping it going.

So, this week, we’re asking for support from our readers and followers. You can click the link below and donate $5, $10 or $25 to DBB. (You can donate any amount you want but those are the easy, clickable buttons.) That money helps keep the site operating and keeps the content free to everyone for YEARS to come. There will not be another pledge drive like this for a long time.

Why now? Because at 40 years old, I’m going back to NYU for my Masters in Cinema Studies this fall – hopefully on the way to a PhD soon enough. It will not limit my ability to create content for the site, but it will limit the time I have for site-related money-making activities.

As a benefit, anyone who donates $10 or more will be entered into our drawing to win the Bears jersey of their choice. DBB will customize it for you and have it to your home by the start of the 2022 regular season. We’ll also be doing a special DBB sticker this season and anyone who donates at that level will receive that sticker as well.

(Hey, it’s $10. It’s two beers. You’re saving calories.)

Thank you so much for supporting this site/Twitter feed. I hope you think of it as an important part of your Chicago Bears experience. We will keep doing what we’ve been doing, providing content free of charge, and providing a platform for anyone with an opinion on this franchise. If you can throw a few bucks in, it’s much appreciated. If not, no worries.

This drive will take place today through Friday. We will return with brand new content on Monday, May 9th!
