Club Insider -'s Premium Content

May 20 – Pewter Report and would like to encourage all Tampa Bay Buccaneers fans to become Club Insiders if you aren't one already. This is a premium service that provides you with EXTRA inside information and analysis not found anywhere else. A Club Insider Membership is our way of providing that additional inside information for those who want it.

After hours of watching Bucs practices and games, reviewing game film, interviewing coaches and players and working the phones, it's just not feasible to put all of the information we collect into the printed version of PewterReport. With photos and advertisements in Pewter Report, space is limited for each story. There are other angles to stories and other quotes from coaches and players that unfortunately have to get edited out of Pewter Report due to space considerations.

Although Pewter Report is usually 36 pages in length, it could easily be 80 pages with the stories we write, quotes we compile and pictures we take, but with the costs of added printing and added postage, it wouldn't be a very profitable venture. That's where the Club Insider comes in.

The Club Insider allows Bucs fans to get some of the late-breaking inside information and analysis not found on, and some of the timely features from Pewter Report, the printed version, such as game coverage. Some of our most popular stories such as the Game Grades, Flynn's Focus, SR's Fab Five, Leo's Late Hits column, and other analytical features, commentary and salary cap information are offered as premium content - available only as a Club Insider. We also do plenty of features that will be totally exclusive to the Club Insider, and not found in Pewter Report. Don't look at this premium service as a replacement for Pewter Report. Think of it as an instant news supplement, which it is.

We have recently increased our editorial and photographic budget to expand the size of Pewter Report and add more content to Seeking revenue to offset expenses is a basic of business, and as all of us are finding out, pay-per-use will be the norm for many, many Web sites in the very near future. Our Web partners,, have provided us with a great vehicle for getting you inside information in a timely manner.

We will continue to post free content on, such as game stories, breaking news and transactions. Those with the Club Insider Membership get additional information and analysis and stories found nowhere else. We view the Club Insider as a way for us to provide more information through longer hours, harder work and more staff for those who are wanting more information and are willing to pay for it.
