Normally I am fairly cheap and will not pay for something I can get for free but I have found that many of the article on Athletic is pretty good and worth what I paid for a year. I believe we have a rule here about posting items behind a PW or am I dreaming again?

It's a rule everywhere, you can't copy-n-paste large chunks of an article behind a paywall.

(which happened here in the past but was followed by deletion by your trusty mods)

However you can link to an article with a brief description.

The site would no doubt appreciate dat dere as it might land them new subscribers.

Doc, is Doyle’s drinking problem the root of his Benning Hate?

I suspect Doyle secretly loves Lord Benning with every fibre of his being.

I suspect he drinks to forget how much he loves Lord Benning.

I suspect Doyle is a riddle wrapped up in an enigma.

I agree with this.

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Maybe the warm Tampa weather will help his voice return to the old days. Got a wee bit crackly of late. Good hockey dude.

I would say Louie Debrusk is the most insightful and non-homer-ish color guy there is. Reason he can do all of the western teams regional and national broadcasts.

Plus, it looks like he could still kick the living snot out of anyone if he got pissed off.

Kevin Bieksa has me watching the pannel between periods. Usually I watch recorded games and blast commercial and intermission, but Bieksa has changed that.

X's and O's telestrator Howie Meeker without hyperbole. Smart, concise and willing to take the piss out of his co-workers who look all the more stupid for trying to keep up to him. Frieldlands attempt to out telestrator Bieksa with his Chatfield comparison was a laughable farce.

Feed them Special K.

Friedman is the worst. Why the hell is he sitting on a panel full of ex-players and managers?
