It's not free for those that pay for insider access. It would be nice if they had reduced ads for insiders.

Just wondering, do you ever watch PTI on Insider?

If I'm correct the cost for the insiders is pretty cheap and I'm sure the advertising helps offset the price. I agree they are a pain but without them most site would be pretty bear.

No can't say that I have. I only use the insider stuff for NFL news mostly related to the Skins, and around draft time is probably my peak use of insider.

Jamf, I agree that the whole ISP/ESPN360 issue is annoying. I had Verizon internet a year ago at this time, and I got to watch a lot of Gator bball on the computer with 360. Now with stupid Comcast I can't.
What the hell is with the mods on this site? Smootsmack goes to school with Rachel Nichols while Scud workouts at the same gym as Tim Kurkjian. On top of that Smootsmack has all these scources that seem to be a little to accurate for comfort. What do I have other then I post on the same board as the guy who went to school with Rachel Nichols and the guy who works out with Kurkjian? Can't wait to hear that Matty plays pickup games with Obama.

LOL! Funny post. I'm not a mod though, I just stayed at Holiday Inn Express last night.

Ask SmootSmack who he works for. He's our very own insider at the "mothership."

Yeah, it's only recently been added and I was just curious if people have really been watching Around the Horn and PTI on Insider.

Without getting into too much detail, the Insider business is still "evolving"

Me too. This is my 3rd year of having Insider, and I get BY FAR the most use out of it during draft time.

Hey SmootSmack- do you think you could convince Van Pelt to have a link to some streaming video of him doing his Mel Kiper impression? It's priceless. Maybe it could be for Insiders only, giving people a little more incentive to sign up...

I stayed at Scott Van Pelt's mom's beach house a couple of summers ago. His mom is really good friends with my aunt. So I've got that going for me... which is nice.
