Harris Sportsthoughts

Thoughts about Sport

I’m back after an involuntary hiatus. And after protracted machinations it’s been decided that from today I will start charging to access Harris Sportsthoughts. You can pay 1p for a daily subscription. The price of the weekly subscription has still to be negotiated but it could be anything up to 2p. That would constitute a saving of around 1p based on average output of three posts a week. It’s a crucial step in making the business of talking shit about sport an economically exciting proposition.

The blog is available for a free trial period. The length of this period is one day, during which one post will be published. This period starts today. You are reading the free post now.

I expect around a 99.5% fallout in readership following this announcement but I would add that the price of a daily subscription would be roughly equal in value to one fizzy cola bottle or a tenth of a Chomp.

  1. We’re thinking of trying a different model at The Nurdler. We’re asking readers to post us a used cricket ball in return for a month’s access (although they can send a new one if they want, and they can use carrier pigeons instead of the postal service.)

    When we receive it, we will activate their accounts, after having a nice cup of tea and a little think about it all.

    Cunning, huh? We reckon some big media corporations have a thing or two to learn from us!

    • What are you going to do with all those used cricket balls? Is this like the Blue Peter Appeal when they magically converted teaspoons into dialysis machines?

  2. Take them to the local park and leave concealed in the grass on the route on the BMX track…
