46-year run ends for Pro Football Weekly
Funny title. PFT is about as "sad" as a witch in a broom factory.
“Way We Hear It” was good stuff. Actual insider comments, not made up crap like others do.
But PFW's website maintainence was awful.
Now let's say goodbye to Florio & his news manufacturing site that posted this.
If you're looking for an alternative to PFT, NFL's Around The League does the same thing with much less click seeking b.s.:
Pro Football Weekly hasn't been the same since Joel Buchsbaum stopped contributing to it.
Buschbaum was the best. He actually took the time to know the ins and outs of all of the draftable prospects each yr, unlike the Kiper/McShays of the world.
McClain lost his NFL insider when Buschbaum paeesed away and McClain's work has suffered ever since.
Keep RIP Joel you were the best.
The world of "usable" football information has not been the same since JB was put to rest.
The internet has killed a lot of businesses but probably has made even more.
I remember looking forward to the preseason newstand publications and seeing who was picked to do what. I haven't bought a magazine in years.
Does anyone remember the "Oiler News" magazine? I used to have that shipped to my house when I lived up north. It never once arrived on time. I always got the upcoming game review issue on the Monday following the game. I still couldn't wait to get it each week.
He was my absolute fave. I used to ADORE reading PFW every week when I was younger, was my bible for everything NFL-related and also was my bible when I first started fantasy sports in the early 90s.
And "the way I hear it" was the true inside guts of the NFL. Was a must read for any diehard every week.
I personally hate relying on Peter King's MMQB (mostly because he insists on non-football talk when I clearly only read him for football) and ESPN (who slants their coverage ridiculously towards the same **** (re: tebow) over and over again.
