Our Writers

Chris Burke is the founder and editor-in-chief of The Detroit Sports Site. He currently works as the author of SI.com’s “Audibles” blog, which covers the NFL. Prior to that, he was the NFL editor at AOL’s FanHouse.com from 2008-11. Chris is a University of Michigan graduate and a lifelong Detroit sports fan. He still badly misses Tiger Stadium.

Max DeMara is a Detroit Sports Site senior editor, as well as the lead editor for our Tigers and Michigan State University coverage. He is a sports junkie for all Detroit teams, even the now-departed Shock. Though he has many interests, sports writing is a first love. While attending Michigan State University, he was a guest writer for Spartannation.com. If he’s not at Spartan Stadium or behind his computer screen, he’s probably gone golfing.

Andrew Tomlinson is a Detroit Sports Site senior editor, as well as the lead editor for our Lions and University of Michigan coverage. He is a proud grad of the The American University in Washington, D.C., but will always be a true Detroiter at heart. He was a writer, reporter and videographer for OnFrozenBlog.com from 2008-2011, covering the Washington Capitals. Despite being spotted in Caps red, white and blue every once in a while, the Wings will always be his No. 1 team.

Michael D. MacVay walked by a dorm window in college one time and saw a sign that said “misplaced Texan” — he chuckled and thought it to be novel and humorous. A decade later, he is the bizarro world version of that nameless Texan. He is the “misplaced Wolverine” living in the Lone Star abyss. Through the wonders of interweb magic, Michael stays in touch with his home state and its sports teams on a regular basis. At the risk of revealing too much, he follows all Tigers games online. Yes ladies … he is single.

Rob Starrs: Born (OK, not literally) and raised at the Joe Louis Arena, he even called it his home ice from 1998-2000 as a member of Detroit Little Caesars. He resides in the area and can be spotted with a winged wheel on his head seven days a week. A Specs Howard grad, he follows the Lions and Tigers closely and still thinks one day he will hoist the Stanley Cup.
