It's the PFT Season Preview mag

PFT2010_new13_stroke-1.jpgOn Saturday, we unveiled the first-ever (and possibly only) PFT Season Preview magazine for our visitors who opt to devote a portion of the time when they’re not getting paid to inspect our always-free online content.

And so now we’ve put the sheet back on and pulled it off again for those of you who only check us out when nestled into the cubicle.

Pre-orders currently can be placed at $7.99, less than the cover price of $9.99.  (And, yes, we realize that the difference likely will be made up by shipping costs, but this way it comes to your house and you don’t have to actually go out and look for the thing.)

Also, we’re told by the publisher that the price point will result in higher-quality paper and photos.  (The actual written content is a different matter.)

Actually, we think the content is fairly solid.  We’ve put a lot of effort into this thing during what otherwise would be the relatively manageable sssslow period of the NFL calendar.  We’ve interviewed Commissioner Roger Goodell and Browns coach Eric Mangini, we’ve hammered out a bunch of other PFT-style features, we’ve kicked up a debate regarding whether off-field conduct should be considered when voting on Hall of Famers, and we’ve sought the input of some of our friends at NBC and beat writers and radio hosts throughout the country regarding the prospects of each and every NFL franchise for the coming season.

In all, it’s 128 pages of stuff specifically engineered to have relevance throughout training camp, the preseason, the regular season, and the postseason.

And if you’re inclined not to buy it so that you can stick it to me, the best way to stick it to me would be to buy the thing in droves, since that would force me to go through this entire six-week ordeal again in 2011.

Assuming there’s a season to preview in 2011.

  1. There needs to be a comic style text bubble coming from Drew Brees that says “Pull it harder, my purple majesty”.

  2. I hope you have time to fix the photo editing on that cover… unless Brees’ arm is actually missing in real life.

  3. Why would I want to pay $7.99 for PFT content when I can’t even stand the stuff I get for free?

  4. HAHA! you actually listened to me Florio! i said Drew Brees and look whos on the cover!

    His arm is pinned to his left hip. If you click on the photo, it brings you to a much larger image.

  6. Was the crotch grab intentional?…not that there’s anything wrong with that.
    And it does look like Bree’s upper arm is missing, unless he’s reaching behind with a finger…oh, never mind.
    Innuendo aside, congratulations on the magazine!

  7. You should have put Brady Quinn and his buddies feelin’ each other up on the cover…

    I thought the same thing when i first saw it, but it’s actually there. It’s just in an awkward position. You can see part of it close to his left hip.

  9. Keep the website going instead of a magazine!!! the info needs to be right now not last week!!!

  10. Fan of Football, you already made your ignorant comments about the Saints cheating and their fans being stupid when he made the magazine post this weekend, so do the world a favor and don’t bother.

  11. Ooohhh, an exclusive one-on-one with Mangini. Did he make you take an 8 hour bus ride to do the interview?

  12. Will I be able to get this shipped overseas? I’m currently stationed out of the country in France.
    Go Saints!

  13. 10 Pages of over-hyping the Jets? I think 4 weeks of Hard Knocks will be enough. I wouldn’t spend .99 cents to read anything about those over-rated, over-the-hill, overweight group of criminals, has-beens, and nothings.

  14. Since Cowboys related posts generate alot of traffic here(mostly hate of course), the cover should’ve been of Romo, or of the big screen, with a statistic of how many times its cost an opposing team a game.

    Does it come wrapped in brown paper (f0r obvious reasons) ?
    ———–
    Yup. It is even billed discretely on credit cards as “NOT PORN” so that anybody who sees the bill won’t know what you are buying.

  16. Selling the PFT magazine on this site makes me feel like this is the beginning of PFT’s version of the ESPN Insider section.

  17. “And if you’re inclined not to buy it so that you can stick it to me, the best way to stick it to me would be to buy the thing in droves, since that would force me to go through this entire six-week ordeal again in 2011.” Reverse psychology only works when you are a clever person, Florio. Try a different tactic next time, maybe you’ll sell more…

  18. Does the magazine have another prediction of the Redskins going to the Super Bowl like you geniouses predicted last year? If that is the case, I’m not buying it.

  19. Actually tried to buy an issue. Beckett.com must be using PFT’s old Albert Haynesworth style hamsters b/c the site is clogged.

  20. Mike, here’s a case where you have a conflict of interest between your employers. NBC wants you to branch into the print media, something they’ve never done that well, while going head-t0-head against another employer, SportingNews.
    Of course if the magazine turns out not to be so good, SportingNews might actually be happy you drove business their way.

  21. Billy Mays gives a shout out that they’re moving like hotcakes off the griddle down in Hell.

  22. Florio,
    If you wanted to stir up interest in this piece of shit you should have put the Jets on the cover.
    NYMets

  23. Yeah, I’m going to pay money to read stuff written by somebody that has proven time and again that he is perfectly fine writing when stuff happens but doesn’t know dick when it comes to analyzing the actual game.

  24. I would think that for pre-ordering you would at least give an autographed copy. I’m just sayin…

    no, but he did charge Florio $1,128.00 for a bottle of water……………………SNAP
