Regarding the Brouhaha About Mechelle Voepel's Content Moving to ESPN Insider

It would be a lot easier for me to take a side if

a) I could get a free trial to look around and see if the entirety of the women's basketball content was worth subscribing to, rather than just taking ESPN's word for it, and
b) if there were an easy way to bow out if I enrolled and decided some time later that I didn't wish to pay for it anymore - reading comments from former ESPN Insider subscribers on the web, it seems that ESPN makes the process as difficult as they can.

Although, if you choose ESPN Insider, they will send you some brightly colored toilet paper called ESPN: The Magazine. (It's not good if you're allergic to certain dyes, though.)

Only if you give them your credit card number. I've subscribed to the magazine for years, but only pay by check and they refused to give me the "Insider" crap.
