Your Chance to Chat with an NFL Great

More than eighty Sporting luminaries including former NBA stars Tim Hardaway, Rick Barry, Charlie Ward, Horace Grant, Michael Cooper, AC Green, Tree Rollins, Terry Porter, Xavier McDaniel, Michael Cage, Mike Gminski as well as UFC Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock and many more feature on a new website which lets fans call them on their cell phones direct.
www.callachamp.com is part of growing micro-access phenomenon, whereby well-known public figures can connect anonymously by phone with their followers on a pay-per-minute basis.
“Players are looking for new ways to monetize their time, fans want more access. CallaChamp gives both parties what they are looking for – a win/win”, commented Jon Levine, who has developed the portal using the global VoIP platform MyPhoneSite.com.
The new venture has been developed in collaboration with The National Basketball Retired Players Association (NBRPA), the only Association comprised of NBA, ABA and Harlem Globetrotters alumni.
Players and fans are connected using a ‘double blind’ connection, whereby callers will never be able to see the players’ ‘real’ number, or vice versa. Unlike traditional 900 services, callers pay nothing until they are connected.
