Freakin ESPN
 
God I can't stand there site anymore. I go to see what the updated mock drafts are from Kiper and Mcshay. I look and see that you have to have insider to view it. Eveything on there is "insider." I can't even read an article written on there about my team because well you have insider. It's stupid it really is.

Holy shiiitt. I know everthing in insider it is so bogus. I was actually thinking about getting it but i said hell no becaue that is exactly what espn wants us to do. It lets u read like the beggining of the article so u are like wow this acticle is sweet then it just cuts u off

It's their right. However, I was just on their sight & thinking wow, not much if your not a subscriber. With all the good info/articles others have without having to subscribe, I really wonder if that is paying off for them?

From what I can tell most 'insider' pay-per-read sites are over-rated.

When it comes to draft talk and speculation nobody really has the important inside information because there are way too many variables at play.

You might know for sure (theoretically) who the Steelers want to pick at 15, but there is no way of knowing who the teams above will select and what draft day trades will be offered.

Like most 'draft experts' Kiper is over rated - certainly not worth paying money for his opinion anyway.

Here is a link to someone who copied the McShay draft onto a sports forum a week or two back (not much has changed since).

Best thing is to search 'Mel Kiper Mock' or whatever on google and after a little hunting you will find some kind soul has posted it on a sports forum.

If ypu subscribe to the mag, you have insider. Give ESPN a call, see if they can hook you up. I have Insider, so I can post the drafts if anyone wants them.
