I agree to a point. You wanna have like a VIP area fine. Put some extra nuggets in there. What I hate is the time factor. In about 2 days, old news gets moved into archive status only for members? I hate sites like this. Its old news! You gonna charge for old stuff and the new stuff? Also, when that 4 letter word site started charging for breaking news "insight", I got worried that my local news team would start charging me for looking up the weather in my area. We'll give you the Florida forecast, but if you want to see what the weather is in Orlando, then you have to become a Newshound VIP member . This is why we give the press certain freedoms in access. Then they turn around and charge us for it?

Very true. And to me, the info isn't always that important or groundbreaking. Sometimes it's just a repeat of something already reported.

Agreed stillers. I think they sometimes make the news seem like there is more to it, but then you buy the VIP package (or whatever they want to call it) and it's not anything new that most of us fans don't already know about.

any major late breaking news makes all the headlines all over the net..then they'll write more indepth about it in the premium sections... the only reason I really consider it is becuz I like watching the video clips of players.
