    Do I have a Roar account?

    It’s very easy to mistake signing up for the newsletter with signing up for a Roar account. If you get the newsletter, that doesn’t mean you have an account with The Roar.

    So if you’re trying desperately to remember your password, try creating a new account instead.

    If you have one, the system will tell you your email is in use, and you won’t be allowed. Then get in touch and we can reset your password for you.

    Am I logged in?

    A simple question, which can have multiple answers.

    The first way to check is by looking for your profile picture in the navigation bar on the site. It’ll be there on both mobile and desktop versions of the site. Look for it here:

    How can I get the newsletter?

    That’s easy!

    When you sign up for an account, simply tick the box for whichever sports you’re interested in and you’ll automatically be put on the mailing list for each of those sports.

    Can I report troublesome commenters?

    We have a set of rules on The Roar, and moreover a spirit of healthy and good-natured discussion that guides everything we do.

    If you think someone is transgressing those rules, then please feel free to report their comment using this button:
