I think Nick's a hack as much as anyone, but I always find it entertaining how much some people around here get worked up about it. To me, if people want to throw their money away for supposed "insider" information, more power to them. But I know it's fun to make fun of the whole organization at times as well.

So here's a poll to see how obsessed we really are with WPI around here. This should be interesting.

A year or so ago I used to go to the site for any Chiefs updates. But then I realized I can get all of that info on Chiefs Planet, so why bother? And I have no idea what in the hell a person gets for $110. That's ridiculous.

It is a good site. They have good articles, good training camp and draft stuff. NO ONE is right all the time. We ask for ALL the rumors that Nick hears, even if he cant confirm them. If you have been a premium member for very long you understand that. Sometimes that stuff leaks out and people act like Nick is swearing to it. HE ISNT, he is just relaying information, we all understand that it may just be a rumor.
I never have understood the hate for WPI that resides on this board. I LOVE both boards and it is amazing how they each have their own personality.

Of course he doesn't swear to it. People pay him over $100 for him to flip flop on issues....

If it turns out to be true....then he claims that you heard it hear first.

If it turns out to be false....then he claims that he never said it was a 100% guaranteed.

total bullshit.

but this site gives him plenty of pub even if its 99% bad atleast it gets his name out.

It seems that paying the 100 bucks is the sticking point for most. It isnt required, like anything else... You no like, you no buy!

I stopped being a mod because of fucking douchebags over there. It went from I can post however I feel to......I can't post how I feel because I represent Scout.

Look, the guy has had personal interviews with Clark Hunt, Carl Peterson, Herm Edwards and many of the players. That isnt Joe Blow off the street. I wouldnt doubt that he has phone #s of the front office people.
NO ONE has been able to get reliable info from the Chiefs since Hunt and Pioli stopped all the leaks.

I'd never even heard of Athan or his site until I came here, and have never visited it.

Paying for "inside" info for a pro team seems comical to me, considering you can find the worthwhile info for free. In the end, you're just paying for articles written by the likes of Claythan.

However, I have been a paid subscriber to sports sites before (Baseball America), and I have considered subscribing to Mizzou's Rivals site to get info on recruits.

I remember you getting frustrated about that, I wasnt sure if that was the whole reason. I dont seem to be having that problem but this latest censorship issue may change that as I have disagreed with it.

I'm kind of liking how they do business now. But it does make the rumors more annoying because nobody really knows anything.

Yeah it mainly came from 2 posters over there. Once of which found his way over here....and proceeded to get his ass handed to him. Although that could be because he's been a douchebag everywhere he goes.

I know for FACT that he said a certain coach was coming to KC for a interview and that shit was BULLLLLLLSHHHHIIIIITTTTTT.

cause i got it straight from the Hoses mouth!

and big WOOP about interviews ive talked to and hung out with NFL players & coaches, hall of famers, even an owner. just cause athan has holds ZERO water when he states something as fact and it isnt.

Zero.

I never visit or read the site.

But for some reason this site has allowed - for years - paid employees of a for-profit site to spam Chiefsplanet. It never ends. And I'll never understand it.

And it is the only company we allow to spam. Just fucking baffling.
