The Roar is Australia’s leading sports opinion website, combining expert columnists with edited fan-written sports articles.

We focus on sports opinion, conversation, and engagement. Each month The Roar publishes around 1,000 fan articles, and more than 80,000 comments from around a million visitors.


Brothers Zac and Zolton Zavos founded The Roar in late 2007. Today the site is majority owned by their company Conversant Media Pty Ltd. Network Ten became a minority investor in The Roar Sports Media in December 2010.

Patrick Effeney is the editor of the site, coming onboard in January 2014 to replace Tristan Rayner, who has started our new site, Techly.com.au.
