I know there are a lot of folks that hate paying for content...but both The Athletic and the Buffalo News Bills Blitz are worth it to me.  Its far less than my combined subscriptions were to Sports Illustrated, the Sporting News and The Bills Digest were back in the cave man days.  Tim Graham's interview with Josh Allen and Vic Carruci's story on John Brown (both today) are really worth the price of admission.

 

Sorry if this offends the Internet content should be free crowd...

Well, I signed up. Created a user account with my email and password. Downloaded the app and it wants my to create an account too but says that my email is already used, duh. I click on content on the main page and it keeps prompting me to create an account. Cant seem to make it recognize the account I already created and paid for.

 

FFS! I checked my account. It shows my subscription and payment, along with my team preferences, so I know the account is setup but every article I click gives me the same message.."almost complete, create an account to continue"

 

Any help? 

 

Okay, uninstalled the app. That worked.

Lots...

 

- Better QB room now than last year.  Didn't realize that basically every body but he and offensive assistant Shea Tierney had changed out from the core of the room at the beginning of last season.

- Anderson and Barkley came in just to help and support him.  Alluded that it was different than the Peterman and McCarron dynamic where all three were competing for the same job

- Lots of off the field questions.  Says he really focuses on helping causes - Super Cade; Leukemia and Lymphoma society (Sister works for Central CA chapter)

- The temptations of the role

- Relationship with Barstool Sports -- for which Tim kind of chastised him

- Building relationships with new teammates -- Morse and Beasley were singled out

 

Its a good read.

How about that advertisers should pay crowd?  How much has SDS gotten from them?  Not even an ad I have seen.  Hopefully those pushing it will not force him to automatically rewrite URLs has he has done in past.

The only thing I got out of that was...he thinks Tyree has more talent than Peterman and McCarron.Any Bulls fan already knew that.Watch Johnson light it up in Fla this season.

Peace.

I'm only getting the sub because of Vic Carruci,he's legit and get's hot as a insider.Graham is Ok IMO...sometimes he drifts into Sullivan-like negative talk...he did it when the two of them teamed up with Javad on (Wgrz-NBC 2).

Anyway..the full year is the price of a delivered pizza.

Well it is if you are in market which over prices the pizza. Never paid $24 for a pizza including driver tip.

I've had it for over a year and it's probably not worth it's $120 annual sub fee.

 

But $24? Yeah, sure. You can judge for yourself at a cheap price.

There are many, many independent pizza restaurants and chains in Northern Virginia.  Have not ate at a chain pizza place since travelling.

 

Mama Mia Pizza and Vocelli Pizza less than a mile from home. There is a Chicago pizza place less than 2 and a Greek place which sells pizza if that is your thing. There are so many Paisano's boxes at work they should negotiate a group discount.

Same. I’ve been a subscriber for about a year also. Not enough new content.  I am cancelling soon.  

 

Most of the the writers are just regurgitated from free local outlets. 

 

Personally not worth the $24 a year...

Signed up and read three articles: Josh Allen, The Athletics 1 yrs anniversary, and Frank Reich's journey.

 

All excellently written, and if I don't read another piece, I will still not be unsatisfied. 

 

Glad this opportunity came. Worth the price of admission, to me. WTF else am I gonna read? Mike F'n Florio?
