    A LOT of media outlets are feeling THIS same crunch.

    People read articles online for free and don't want to pay. People can't feed their family on free. :D

    I could swear I got information off the site a month or so again but looking at it everything is a year old. Guess I got some old Info.

    I'd actually like to say that I miss ol' Hub..................but I don't. He's an idiot and not all that popular among fans which may have had some impact on the failure of PFW to capture a following.

    Yea, they had Hub on the score about a year ago talking about its demise. I just think some internet publications are not savvy enough to keep things running. Even Hub said that he did not really see the demise coming until it was too late and he was left behind. I have to say that I used to enjoy it, but honestly, I don't really miss it.

    :haha::rofl2: I'd like to say it's a sign of just how badly Hub was missed that you didn't notice it for a year. :13_4_9[1]:

    Bob every time I see that running dick in your sig line it reminds me of this pic that 4 and 26 posted many moons ago. The title of the thread was "This dick in a pickup truck just pulled out in front of me". :bah:

    Hub closed down PFW and started up a new site on his own called HubArkush.com, which is now chicagofootball.com.

    Some stuff is just lighthearted fluff, some is actually good in depth breakdown of what is going on, some of it is not Bears related or NFCN related, still a source of information, good bad or indifferent. Hub's been around that team forever and has some good sources and good insight, unless you expect your reporters to be on their knees doing nothing but praise of the Bears.
