Our annual pass includes:
The Magazine

NFL Preview
$15 certificate to Whatifsports.com
$10 certificate to sportsnutz.com
A year subscription to Sports Illustrated

Access to ALL premium articles across the Scout.com network. That means if you're a fan of the Kansas Jayhawks you also get all Jayhawk news. Or if you're a fan of Jayhawk basketball and Kansas State football you get all that information included. That includes exclusive recruiting information.

I very seriously doubt this one will reach 100 posts but thanks for the opportunity to tell you about Warpaint. Now you can turn around and say I'm spamming the board - and be wrong. Again.

I'm not a huge NBA fan by any means and I may have seen 3 regular season games all year, but the Mavs / Spurs and Mavs / Suns were two exciting series of basketball.

So, if the NBA isn't your bag, then what about a li'l fantasy football...

I don't think I would sign up for the premium membership just because of the so called "risks" that Nick Athan puts out there. I want to hear factual stuff not someones guess of what they think the Chiefs will do and reporting it as inside stuff.

It is a little expensive, Mr. JBucc. I agree.

But, I look at it this way. I don't get to go to any games because of my geographic limitations. So, I don't pay for parking, tickets, or pay Arrowhead bear and nacho prices.

It's a way for me to get closer to the team for a hundred bucks a year and that's okay.

Basically, two reasons, Mr. Skip Towne.

First, it's stuff that you guys probably already hear or know about because you get Chiefs radio and tv and stuff.

Second, when you sign up for a membership, you agree on your honor not to post or publish the premium content.

Actually, I get most of my Chiefs news and information from the Planet. The audio clips are, basically, just player interviews about the game.

I'd have to think about that one, Mr. Skip Towne. I can't recall anything off the top of my head. I'm certain that most Planeteers are better informed than I and, for that matter, many of the writers at WPI. Again, I get most of my "hard" Chiefs news from here. My view is that, a lot of guys on the Planet could work in the NFL, no problem. They have that level of knowledge and understanding of the game.

And, as I said, the locker room interviews are, essentially, just that. Audio of players after the game ... "What did that interception feel like?" "It felt good." That sort of thing.

But, in my world, any Chiefs information is good. It's a desert out here for that kind of thing. Unless it's streamed, I never see player interviews on tv, hear them on the radio, etc. So, for me, having access to those little tidbits is very welcome.

I have, indeed, Mr. Skip Towne. But there's a problem with that.

Due to the location and orientation of my home, the dish would have to be on the front of the house. Unfortunately, the beautiful and witty Mrs. FAX has declared that, under no circumstances nor at any time now or in the future, shall a satellite dish be placed on the front of our house as it would interfere with her sensitive aesthetics.

I have offered money, vacations, more frequent maid service and sexual favors in an attempt to dissuade her from this position. All to no avail.

It is unlikely that, a divorce notwithstanding, I shall ever persuade her. Unless you have a better idea, my next plan is to move.

That way, I can listen to the stream of the games and watch the java applet on nfl.com to see how things are going without either interruption or distraction.

FAXHeh. ROFL

I can relate. My "ration" of 2 games a week doesn't usually get me my fix.....so I try to schedule time at the office, during Sunday night or Monday night games. The Mrs. hasn't caught on yet, that I can sneak another game in that way. Heh.

You gotta find a way, and the time to make it to a game. They are great. River Falls is fun too. I almost gave up my season tickets this year, but my 10 year old wouldn't let me. He and I, and his cousin, will be headed to TC again the first week of August. It's a blast, for die-hards. You really need to find a way to make it happen.

Skip has a point about the dish at the office....:hmmm:

Mr. Kotter & Mr. Skip Towne ... the back yard idea has been explored and eliminated as possibilities. But, the idea of getting a dish here at the office is excellent! This may well work. I shall pursue this possibility immediately. Thanks for the idea.
