Exclamation My disappointment over SI products

Hi, all. I just wanted to express my disappointement over SI Superbowl XL magazine issue and special edition book.

I spend $7 for the magazine from local book store. It covered quite bit on the Steelers and the SB-XL. Then there is the brown covered "Special Edition" book for the Steelers, and it supposedly included all the articles and photos that SI published during the season, or at least that's my understanding was because of all those advertising and commercials. But after paying about $30 on the special edition thingy, it was almost exactly the same, except of course the cover. I think that was a rip off. How can they do this to us? Now it's something that I can just put inside the shelf next to the replica helmet, because of the cover.

Hopefully some of you guys who works at the SI, or know someone who does, let them know that was really bad move. Maybe next time when we win, they can actually publish something decent, something that's worth its cover.

You are correct..the hard bound commemorative issue was just that..the magazine in a hard cover for a higher price.

SI (and others) do these things to take advantage of the buying frenzy that accompanies a team winning the championship. From a pure business standpoint, it's a sound and effective strategy.

Hey..I spent ALOT of money from 2/6/06 through 2/28/06...LOL....but..ya know?...you cant take for granted when the next one will come...so..buyer beware...and have fun with it

I bought the subscription to get the "incentives" (Football, book, and DVD) and really enjoyed it all.

I pretty much knew what the book would be though................

Yeah, I agree completely. I spent way too much money, and the hard covered edition is no different from anything else they came out with except for the hard cover of course. But the way I see it, I'll be bald and fat 30 years down the line, and I'll be able to page through that book/zine and remember this season, and the integrity of the pages won't be as compromised. I consider it an investment, and it's a small price to pay to have strong visual reminders of the first No. 6 seed to ever win a Super Bowl, and the first Super Bowl champion to win three games on the road to get there. It still gives me goosebumps...

I like the football.... it has a special place here. The DVD is/was an immediate classic/all-time favorite.
