So I go to check out some football stuffs today at Syracuse.com and find out I've been blocked. Apparently I had maxed out my level of free articles. They are requiring a $17.29/month subscription. I filled out a survey and told them they were ridiculous, I pay 1/2 that for my digital streaming TV/Movie services. I'm certainly not paying that much for a hack site filled with nothing but editorials and twitter style reporting. I'm not sure if guest access still works but this is ridiculous and going to kill that site. I predict they will lose about 75% of their current traffic. Ad revenues will crash. What a stupid decision. Even the NYTimes charges less for the basic sub.
