    Default Bison Media Zone

    Kolpack and Izzo’s blog is moving behind a paywall on InForum’s main site.

    http://bisonmedia.areavoices.com/to-...s-and-viewers/

    As many know, the Forum has launched a new paywall. It is now common in media practices for news sites to charge for content and the Forum is doing that. With that said, the Bison Media Zone will move to the main Forum site and be part of the paywall.”

    If I'm going to pay for content, it's going to be Bison Report. Also, I'm not paying for content.
    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Not really worth it, IMO, to pay for info that comes out a couple days after it is brought up here. I can do without the human interest pieces.

    The forum also stopped sending out the Sunday paper. I'll just watch the Sunday bison football show.

    I used to watch every one of their Monday post-press conference and Saturday postgame videos but I soured on it after they (Kolpack mostly) threw the holy shit fit about lack of access when the radio contract was awarded to Radio FM Media and haven't watched much of their stuff since then. I haven't missed it all that much. Those guys are still great follows on Twitter but not nearly as essential to following the Bison as they used to be with all the coverage from Bison Report and Bison 1660 now.

    They cried over not having free access to NDSU sports, now they are charging you to hear about their free access.

    Hard pass

    They're in a bad spot because this is Marcil's decision, not theirs. Of course he could have saved some money on his wife's vanity project and probably not needed the paywall for now.

    I also was soured by it and did what you did. I read maybe 10% of their content and used to read 100%.

    Ha ha! What goes around, comes around.

    Amen to the hard pass. I also quit their coverage after their hissy fit on the access, and haven't missed it one bit.
