  1. You all have a lot of great info on this site. Do the premium sites help you with it? That is, do they feed you information?

  2. Thanks RupV!

    Well, we sure wish all the sites shared information. And you might think we would, after all, we are all UCLA fans, right?

    Not really.

    The difference is that we run this site as a FREE service to UCLA fans. No money, no glory. Our loyalty is to UCLA, period. We are not trying to make a profit off a single fan. We don’t sell Tee shirts, or our own UCLA fan gear. We like to think of it as a pure UCLA fan site.

    The pay sites have a different loyalty. It is called making money from subscriptions. Whatever generates more subscriptions is the motivation for everything they do. It is their job. It pays the bills. We don’t blame them for that, but it really is a buyer beware situation.

    If they create controversy where there should be none, it is because it generates more subscriptions. If they hammer a coach or a player (or more importantly encourage fans on the message boards to do so), it is because it generates more subscriptions. If they report “scoops” that turn out to be wrong, they never admit it, but do it because it generates more subscriptions. No one remembers anyway so they can do it over and over.

    We no longer subscribe to any pay site. Not a one. Some of the BruinAuthority.com guys used to, but frankly found that we often felt like we were being manipulated. If we thought we were being manipulated to be better UCLA fans, we would have felt different. Instead we felt it was all about getting another $10 out of us every month. Drum up some imaginary controversy and recruiting speculation, report it as fact from their super secret insider sources, and more people subscribe.

    Not to mention, we often had the information BEFORE they had it.

    That is why we created this site. To offer Bruin fans an alternative to having to pay for speculation or hearsay.

    We are not saying you shouldn’t pay them money. They seem to make a lot of money with the revenue model they have so it obviously works. Everyone has a different reason for visiting these sites, and a different reason why they give their money to them.
