ESPN.com Insider

Just a question. Does anyone actually subscribe to that nonsense? More and more I'm getting irritated with ESPN.com when I'm browsing articles to find a certain one is available to only people who subscribe to Insider. Do they honestly make decent money off that? Sure they give you access to their "Expert Analysis" but why do I need to pay for it when plenty of other sports sites give it up for free? Apparently they think Mel Kiper is the only NFL draft expert. And what's this crap about needing to have Insider to look at their NFL fantasy rankings this year? Lame. :-t

It's depressing that almost every site is going to this type of set-up. It was how I found myself at the Cafe actually. The fantasy site I used to frequent went to a subscription setup. I had donated money and articles to them over the years as a simple thanks, but when they started to charge people to read donated articles or get "expert" advice it was time to move on.

I don't subscribe to it and I doubt it's worth it.

I subscribe to it. Its actually OK. They have so many in-depth articles on the drafts and teams that I think its worh it. I wouldn't use the fantasy stuff, but most of the articles are really good/informative.
