why does aaron curry keep getting passed over/overlooked in these sorts of articles?
Why does anyone bother to subscribe for ESPN INSIDER?
Don't you automatically get Insider if you subscribe to their Magazine?
Couldn't you guys just give us a list of the ten guys (without analysis) and then let us have the compulsorary argument?
(the espn insider contract guy)
Seriously. Whoever signed up for any insider service to get news must be out of their skull.
No kidding. What's the point of posting links to articles that most of us can't read?
Amazingly, we have the same people complaining about ESPN Insider articles on seemingly every ESPN Insider post. I'll just cut and paste this from the last time we had this discussion.
We've never had Premium articles on the site -- that is to say, we've never said "Hey, sign up for Premium and we'll write exclusive articles for you!" Premium members have had access to the Premium database, the gambling odds, and the 24-hour fantasy service. Never any articles that the rest of our readers couldn't read.
In addition, the majority of these articles are articles that would not have been written otherwise -- not because they weren't worth writing or because they weren't interesting, but because they weren't subsidized. As they're now being subsidized, we welcome the opportunity to write more frequently and produce more content.
We link these articles so that people who are ESPN Insiders can read them and know that they're on ESPN. We make it clear that they're Insider articles so that those people who aren't Insiders can know to steer clear.
Can we count Baltimore out of of the playoff race? And how freaky weird has Gary Barnidge's season been?
