Why You Should Subscribe to RotoWire.com
Whether you are a long-time RotoWire user or a new visitor to our site, your first thought is probably "Why should I pay for this?"
We'll be perfectly honest with you.
Our model has gone from a free delivery system based on advertising, to a system based on subscription fees. The number of free fantasy sports sites on the web is dwindling and their quality is eroding.
For those of you who used to visit us for free, we'd like to remind you why you found the site so valuable in the past and for the new people, here is why paying $4.99 per month saves you time and money in the end.

4. Track Record and Longevity
"the grandfather of fantasy sports sites" - Fantasy Sports Online For Dummies
Back in 1997, the founders and staff of RotoWire basically created the market for fantasy player news when they developed RotoNews.com. RotoWire carries on that tradition with the most timely and vast set of player notes.
The founders sold Rotonews.com to another company which folded in a typical IPO bankruptcy. The founders decided to keep their company alive and the staff formed RotoWire.com in April 2001.
Our editors and writers have been working in the industry long before the web made it became mainstream, and are prominent members of the fantasy sports community, participating in such high profile events as the USA Today LABR Draft, the Arizona Fall League Symposium and the Fantasy Sports Players Association.
