    Good stuff Bob. The roster moves around the league is one of the reasons that I subscribed again this year.

    Maybe, but I would rather waste 25$ than my time. I pay other people more than that per hour to work for me, what’s 25$ to gather information for me in an organized manner for a whole year. Obviously you don’t value your time as much as I do.

    Well stated, Lyle. I’m drinkin the kewl aide, too. Besides, who buys a newspaper anymore when everything is free on the internet?

    I can get that stuff here, along with other good stuff all condensed into one site and one click. It’s convenient, and like your’s, my time IS valuable, too.

    Chiefs should cut Palko and sign QB Todd Bouman as Cassel’s backup this season and obviously let Stanzi sit and learn for a year.
