    Pay sites are the best. Rivals premium site is great. Lots more inside information shared there between posters. You always have that idiot on free sites always being that guy to shout others down, or berate inside info guys to where they just don't share any info any longer.

    I've seen some forums where you can pay for an ad-free experience. If you want no ads, you pay a (usually) small monthly fee; if you don't want to pay, you get ads. Everybody gets the same content, though. This would allow them to prevent users from using ad-blockers, as well. I think this would be a good model for CF.

    9/10 times that "Breaking News" or "Insider Information" has been shared somewhere on Twitter long before your $4 premimum membership will get it to ya.

    Is that from a Circus Performers Forum? Lots of talk abut clowns. I want to click on it just to see how many clowns the NFL has drafted (hard to run routes with those giant shoes), what are the clowns struggling at (I'll assume juggling, since pie throwing and flower squirting is pretty easy), or who they are getting help from (trapeze artists? Strongman? Elephants?).

    I'm not really talking about "breaking news" per say.

    For instance a poster was good friends of a dad of a Florida recruit. He gave all sort of recruiting tidbits and information on this kid, how he felt when he got an Iowa offer, what he thought and the process, etc. He didn't share it on the free board.

    Plus just a lot more intelligent conversation by people overall. At least at Rivals anyway.

    As their former sales director knows, their statistics and demographics are solid. Like any site it has its bad members.

    How can a guy 1000 miles away from Iowa City have much breaking news or inside info?

    FedEx, Pony Express, throwing rocks with notes taped to them... the list goes on.

    It's 2017, so road flares, smoke signals, or messenger pigeons would be my guess.

    I didn't read his write up closely but don't people over there know that if you want to get rid of trolls you can just ignore certain users?

    There you go hawks, no more running to the streets to collect cans to fund your HN subscription.

    Am I the only one that thinks this will increase CF traffic by quite a bit?
