Editorial Staff

Thomas Willis, editor

When 9-year-old Thomas went to his first Nashville Predators game, he thought this thing called a "power play" was quite effective at producing goals--he just wondered why the team kept announcing when they were about to run it and why they didn't try it more often. Since that confusing first game, his hockey knowledge has increased dramatically; to the point he wanted to write about the Preds on a regular basis. In his day job, Thomas serves as the Video Producer and Marketing Coordinator for a cool organization called the ERLC. His wife, Elizabeth, wasn't a Preds fan when they first met five years ago. Not so anymore. Want proof? They just named their new Jack Russell Terrier, Shea. You can decide where they came up with that one...

James Summerlin, Staff Writer

James is to-date the only Nashville Predators fan living in the state of Louisiana. He is a producer for NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune. He is a student at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. His beautiful wife, Rachel, is sick of hearing James talk about hockey so she talked him into writing for Predlines. James accepts positive feedback and you can tweet him @jdsummerlin.

Mark Harris, Staff Writer

About FanSided

FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn a network of over 290 fan-powered unique sports and entertainment sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
