I really can't answer your questions about superficiality of the two disciplines. I have to think writing in whatever nitch you work in, has to have a bunch more competition than the MMA world.

In my world of outdoor writing, competition is high and the pay is low. For example I'm receiving, for my columns and articles, what I received in the mid-80s. Editors can pick and choose with lots of want-a-bees trying to break into the industry.

My advice to new outdoor writers is to not quit your day job and keep writing and submitting to newspapers and magazines...and now the Internet.

Time to go back under my rock,

Spence, who is watching the Big-12 continue toward the Sweet 16.
