Spurs Coverage at MySanAntonio.com

Begin Rant ---

OK, I run a couple of news websites and I understand the desire not to go broke running them and I even understand putting up a paywall for premium content.

BUT, IMHO to throw up a paywall that blocks a good portion of Spurs coverage DURING the playoffs is just a really, really, really bad idea. Put it up during the year, let people get used to it.

Oh I know, the thought process is 'if we put it up now when people are most interested in the Spurs they'll pay for out 'exclusive' coverage'..WRONG, I can go to projectspurs.com, mvptexas.com, sports.yahoo.com, cbssports.com, nba.si.com, espn.nba.com and get my stories. Now there's absolutely NO reason for me to visit mysanantonio.com and I'm sure not going to go to the new premium site.

End Rant ----
