They are still pissed off that the Pirates took their partnership to the Trib.

PG is putting up a pay wall soon. I'll probably subscribe to the print version which will give me the online free.

Their Pirates coverage is mediocre but I do look at their web site nearly every day.

Do you know they are putting one up or are you speculating? It's web suicide for them if they do.

They are putting one up- announced earlier this week. I read online regularly because their layout has always been better than the Trib. Getting used to reading the trib already.

PG would do well to realize that you can't charge for content people can get for free elsewhere. So far as I know, there isn't one unique thing about the PG that is worth paying for.

That's exactly the point. Even in a one newspaper town, it is tough to do because of TV and radio stations. But with another paper, the Trib must be salivating.
