Starting Aug. 1st Gretz will be charging for "premium" news. Are any of you going to pay to read what he has to say? He is one of the better Chiefs reporters out there right now. It's $25 before Aug. 1st, $35 after.

$25 for the entire season is a complete steal.

And I hate to say it, but a much better deal than WPI.

Am I personally? No.

Do I think Gretz has 100x better sources than Athan and is charging 1/4th the price? Yep.

Since Carl was fired, Gretz has been released from all of his Chiefs related jobs.

How's he been making a living since?

I'd think he'd get more $ from keeping it free & ad supported vs killing a lot of traffic? Or, is he doing both free & premium content? He does a better job than anyone else for the most part, I guess, but that just shows how pisspoor the coverage has fallen. Unless he's expanding the # of features, I don't think I'll be ponying up for it, but I respect the man's decision to need some income for his time & effort.

JW had some rumor in his column i think, months ago, that carl was paying for gretz's travel last year to cover the chiefs. something about that was the scuttlebutt going around according to JW.

i don't blame gretz for doing what he is to make it work for him. just making a joke out of a rumor that IMO didn't make sense to begin with.

What about when training camp rolls around?

Gretz has the best camp reports.

The Star's camp coverage is a joke. I don't know what WPI is going to look like this year.

formerdb will be at camp this year, from what Ive heard.

He has EASILY the best reports from ANYONE free or those that charge.

Not meaning to ring to ChiefsCoalition bell, but that is where his reports post first, not sure if they have gotten to the Planet in the past cause I wasn't here.

Yeah, we have disussed his reports here in the past.

The problem with him is that he only spends a week in camp.

I do start checking the Coalition when camp rolls around to check when he's going to be there and to read them.

Good luck to him. Most people over the internet will post what he says. That's what happens with ESPN IN. I imagine if he reports anything important, it'll leak out.

But for how long, 3 days? He's never there for very long.

With WPI falling on hard times and River Falls out of the picture, Gretz's site is probably going to be the best place for camp reports this year.

Falling on hard times is putting it mildly, take it from a paying WPI customer.....My subscription expires in September and it can't get here soon enough.

I think Josh Looney has the most access now, but I don't care so much about the camp reports now anyway.....just lost interest from lack of interest.

I wouldn't give GoChiefs too much credit, but his departure didn't help things much. Their downfall was when Herm was fired and CP left. After that Athan's lips were forcibly pried from their asses and all his "insider" info dried up (and I use the "insider" term loosely).

After talking to some people involved at 810 and Petro actually a Chief's employee with the "RedZone" show (or whatever he calls it) I think their Chiefs coverage will be about as good as it gets with them being the official radio partner now. You would think their coverage would go up and be better. Would be pretty stupid to enter into some type of agreement and not get the goods. It's in both of their best interest to pump the news out of there first..........or you would think. They at least have the ability to beat any print journalist to the punch. Guess we'll see.

Gretz is good, but I'm not paying for any "premium" shit whether it be Gretz, ESPN Insider, and especially not WPI.

Of course anyone with a keyboard and the intranetz think they can be a journalist over night these days.
