S. I/No more free Wertheim

I usually read fondly like most of everyone else here his take on tennis especially the Mailbag.
Well this week SI has decided you have to be a SUBSCRIBER to the magazine to get access to the online article.
I can see if they wanted you to register, but BUY a subscription?
HELL NO
That is the end of interest in his tennis blog if you ask me.
I dont like SI there tennis coverage is limited to the grand slams and marginal at best.
SO PISS OFF SI!!!

He is not the only one. Check out what Matt Cronin had to say.

Bette Davis hated doing regular TV movies out of pride that people didn't have to pay to see her. She had no problem with doing cable movies because cable charges a fee.

Joan Crawford simply said on the issue that she'd dress up like an ape if they paid her the right sum, after all Maurice Evans did.

Guinness entry for "Shortest list in the world":
"People who paid for SI subscription to read Jon Wertheim columns".

"Literally four types of comments: your awesome, I hate you, I jerked off to this, why would anybody jerk off to this. Youtube should just get rid of comments. Blah."

So they are saying that a FREE site's articles can't be posted to another FREE site, so they have to make you subscribe?

And cnnsi.com doesn't even a "Tennis" section. It lumps tennis in with "Other Sports"...

Both Wertheim and Cronin are idiots with lame agenda's anyway .Why pay to read propaganda from two jerks that aren't professional enough to seperate their personal biases from authored opinions?
