In all honesty I know where you're spinning from Scott and respect it from a business stand point, but print and digital are not the same.  In terms of where you can read it, print v. online differ quite a bit.  Those that are subscribers with not consistent access to a computer (yes, there are still some) what happens to them?  And again, those of us that payed the extra $25 for 1st class, what happens to that money per issue?

We actually have very few magazine-only subscribers now, MarleyMon81. It's a sign of the times in the digital world we live in.

As I stated, for the first class subscribers we are extending their subscription so that it will convert the amount paid into additional years on their subscription.

My wife doesnt have acces to the internet at work, so when she gets home and after the kids are settled she likes to lay down and read the magazine. Even though there have been numerous changes since the september issue she still enjoys reading up on the upcoming game and matchups. Also she cut out some of the pictures and made borders for the kids photo ablbums and even uses the magazines for scrap booking. Now what? I am so mad!!!!!!!   Should have known, did Raheem put you guys up to this?

Looks like you're going to incorporate the page-flipping design I suggested some time back for the online version. Great, I think that makes it easier for those more accustomed to the print version.

Great idea for the most part, but I would prefer a quarterly or bi-annual issue mostly dedicated to photos.

THAT is a good idea...  

Magazine was 1/2 advertisements...   Nice 'collectible'...  other than that I can live with the digital...  

(Sounds like Chaos might be havin' a meltdown though...)  How many exclaimation points does one really need?   Really?  I (apparently) prefer ellipses...  lol

What the heck am I going to read on the can now?  Freakin' Tolstoy?  

Just kidding ;-)  It's a good business decision.  Print is dead.

A long overdue change.  I've wanted an online only version forever, since by the time the print copy arrives I've read all the content.  PR gets to slash its operating costs, and also gets to bash the archaic 'fishwraps' without seeming hypocritical.  booyah!

Not a fan at all.... I liked the print magazine simply because it wasn't on the computer and could be read anytime anywhere.... Sure, I read the articles and everything, but this should have been announced before you got a lot of people to re up for 3 years... Oh well...

Cheaper for yall, good business move, but is bad for a lot of people who have been loyal to yall for a long time.

So people with little to no access to the internet are sorta screwed. I for one was looking forward to subscribing for the magazine alone. They would go along  nice with my SI sub.

On the upside, they likely won't be able to post here and complain.

It's 2009, who honestly has little to no internet access anymore?

I dont think there are enough exclamation points to explain how furious I am. lol  When I called up in early August to get more info about this site I was sold on the fact that I would be getting a printed magazine, and online access. I feel like I was lied to because I'm pretty sure this plan was in motion before I signed up, and I was not told.  I bought me a subscription for 3 years and a friends for 2 years. I guess i'm just one of those peole who still enjoy getting mail.  I guess thats what you get for $10.

lmao... that cracked me up...

It's ok though, PR is going to extend their subscription for them, oh wait.
