It seems as if ESPN.com has moved just about everything other than headlines and Gammons to their pay for section or IN area. Sure I can still get my Jayson Starks fix if I want to read 'Useless Information', but the column that I really like by him 'Rumblings and Grumblings' is now PPV only as well. I'm not totally complaining yet as my main man Len Pasquarelli is still free of charge. I guess what I'm getting at is is there a good alternative to ESPN.com for "insider" type of news without paying for it or going to a 411 type of site?

I hate ESPN INsider, especially since the #1 reason I used to visit ESPN.com were the rumor mills, which they have moved into the premium category.
Seems like a bit much to me.

Both CNNSI and ESPN have been annoying me for some time with this, and it's getting far worse on both, particularly the latter.

I fully understand the need for such a service - Disney has to make money off the venture, not just support it - and the likely cost of producing and hosting that content boggles my wallet's mind. Still, most of the content restricted to IN in the past was premium enough that subscribers shouldn't feel they're wasting the money, and with all the adverts spread across the other slowly-loading pages, it's not like non-paying users weren't being inundated with opportunities for Bristol to make some cash. Now, I'll pop on and see four articles I want to read; none are free, but all would have been six months ago. I sometimes ask myself why I bother anymore.

I know the subscription is cheap, but add this to every other little thing we all have to have now and my wallet's mind flat-out asplodes.

Per the question, I've seen nothing else on the level of Disney, and it annoys me to no end.

www.theredzone.org is a great source for NFL news. They just scan the online papers and such and link the articles. Occasionally you'll get a popup when you open a page, but only one. Dunno about other sports.

I'm one of the suckers that pays for INsider access. The magazine has very pretty pictures.

At $5 a month, all the content you get is not too much to ask for, IMO.

I got Insider about a year ago and it's well worth the price IMO since you get the magazine as well as all the extra content. If you are really into sports and spend a lot of time online I say it's worth the price but I do understand the backlash against it. WWW.profootballtalk.com is a great site for all NFL rumors and stories and it's 100% free.

Plus, doesn't it include a subscription to the Magazine? There are some really good writers in there after the first forty or so pages or US Magazine-style crapola.

What I find irritating however is the fact that Canadians cannot subscribe to ESPN Insider because they won't ship the Magazine to Canada.

I couldn't give a shit about the Magazine, I just want the website content - but they won't deliver to me.

Give the magazine subscription away as a gift to someone you know in the States?

If I did write a book, I would make sure it was as accurate as possible. Why put your name on a hodgepodge of errors? Plus, I don't act like I'm the end-all, be-all of wrestling.
