Ben Bishop suffered a lower body injury in Sunday's 4-3 win at Milwaukee, and the Rivermen have called up goaltender Beau Erickson from the ECHL's Ontario (California) Reign... but you won't be able to read that on the Peoria Journal-Star website unless you pay.
Apparently, the PJStar has decided that they aren't making enough money and thus will no longer provide the news for free on their website. You now have to subscribe for $6.99 a month if you wish to read any of their articles on the website. Oh, they will "generously" allow you 15 free page views per month, but needless to say, your GTPD exceeded that limit fairly quickly.
The best part? Even if you subscribe to the print edition, you still have to pay $1.49 a month to read the website. Anyone care to guess to what Stygian depths their page hits will now plummet, and how quickly?
This is going to put a bit of a cramp in the Prospect Sunday reporting for the time being, and is the reason why there was no "River Readings" feature yesterday.
