A Sports DAO for fans who want to play at managing their teams. The DAO will make proposals regarding everything that matters for the team, and prove to the world that fans make better decisions! Or not
Fans will be rewarded by DAO tokens, and gain reputation. If the DAO proves worthy, this could become a semi official channel for teams to make decisions.
Funding will come partially from subscription fees, and partially from the teams themselves - they get an engaged fan base, and potentially good advice. It’s definitely good PR for the teams, and leagues.
I see this iteration of the Sports DAO as a way to bridge the intense engagement of sports fans in blogs, twitter, etc., and an actual ownership of teams. No DAO is buying the New York Knicks from James Dolan right now, but DAOs can help fans become part of the way teams make decisions, and later start owning their own teams in smaller leagues.
