    Unreal!  We now have to beat reporters, NC and DS, who have bigger egos than a number of Red Sox fat heads.

    okay, the notebook is still free, was just delayed. Won't miss CHb but will miss Sunday baseball notes.

    People who complain about having to pay instead of reading it for free, think about this. Before the internet, people paid to read everything. You'd plunk down a quarter or 50 cents or pay for a subscription. So what's the difference now. Whatever profession you're in, I'm sure you'd like to get paid. Shouldn't reporters and columnists, etc. get paid for their work too.

    Here's the dilemna for newspaper companies. They're not really giving away now something that people used to pay for. Yes, readers would pay for subscriptions or buy the paper at the story or newstand, but that money didn't really support the paper. It basically paid for the carriers and for the distribution.

    On-line, you don't have that cost, which is the reasoning in the past for not having paysites. Plus there's the competition of being able to get news elsewhere for free, which is why newspapers that have paysites are just putting selected content on it, presumably local stuff that can't be found elsewhere. 

    While there has been an increase in online revenue, it hasn't made up for the loss on the print side, which is why newspaper companies are struggling today.

    people paid because the newspaper was the only game in town. the economics of distribution dictated that only one, maybe two papers could actually charge to subsidize that distribution. for consumers it was a choice between choosing to pay for something and not getting anything. the we made available alternative sources of good enough info for free.

    Pay to read CHB? it was only good for comic relief anyways, getting to laugh at him as he spewed his ego-addled pseudo-reporting..... The last worthy thing I read in connection w/ CHB was when Ted's daughter called him out after he yet again took a cheap shot at a deadman, who just happened to be the same guy that helped out CHB and his family as his own daughter battled cancer....and of course, he didn't write the story-

    When he gets some class it might be worth something, but we'll never have to worry about that now will we.....

    We get what for a 157 million bucks? 

    The writers we deserve.

    I'm joking of course, but wondering if I could root for the Yankees. 

    Never mind. 

    Wait till next year.
