We have a VERY good relationship with the attorney most closely aligned with Jmart.  So, it will probably be a while before we get sternly worded emails from Rivals, if ever!

Sounds like a challenge

Have you seen the ending to Fight Club?  It's almost like that.

247 shut down Scout board. You can't even post right now. Every comment requires "moderator approval."

Since there were probably a lot of gE'rs that were powercat illustrated magazine subscribers, I think this info from a member of KStateOnline.com could be helpful in trying to get all your various memberships accounted for:

Quote
Banned at 247 or PI money stolen? 247 issued me a credit!

I got refunded to my CC, my subscription after a short discussion with 247 customer service.

Fitz, posted on the 247 non premium board that he didn't have the money in the bank to refund Powercat Illistrated subscription money. Yep, he took your renewal by check in most cases even though he knew he was shutting the magazine down. Tells me all I need to know about a person's integrity.

It's my opinion that Fitz was more likely pushed out by Rivals than not, though I don't really care at this point.

Providing that information to 247/scout customer service will get you a refund.

Just the facts, no additional comment needed. My last discussion on this subject regarding this issue from me. Though I am going to pass along this information to the many folks I know who only PI subscribers.

Fill in what I'm missing, please.

Fitz continued to take money for PI subs even though he knew he was done making it? People flip out when he announces it's done, he tells some people he will refund them, then realizes he's broke AF and doesn't. Switches to 247 and now 247 is doing the refunding? Is that right?

Can anyone confirm this?

Included in that team is my associate editor, D. Scott Fritchen, who I consider to be the finest long-form sports feature writer currently working anywhere in sports writing. Rising star Riley Gates is still with us, as is his father, Brian, who helps oversee the daily content on the site, and so is Ryan Wallace, the nation's expert in K-State football recruiting.

Seems improbable. Also, I hate the term "long-form."
