Since I read while at the office, video is not a workable format for me.

Prefer the written version so that I can skim and just focus on players that interest me.

Agree with baserip4 - video isn't good in the office.

I agree, text is a lot more office friendly. But nice work!

I prefer the written report also. If you were going to video of injuries (think CSI style simulations or Chinese news recreations) I might get on board. But watching you talk isn't very fun. No offense.

To get the rights to that video, we'd have to increase the subscription price to about ... $40,000 per year. Don't see that on the horizon. Believe me, there's a LOT of things I'd like to do if I had video rights.

I enjoyed the video format, I do not read BP at work and I'm generally interested in hearing about many different players. That being the case, video is more engaging when relaxing at home and I have no issue listening or watching the entire thing.

Given the objections above, an all-video version is probably not going to be approved, but I would be very happy with a video UTK once a week or even an audio version.

I like the video UTK especially as opposed to not getting a UTK at all. The more content from Will the better in my eyes.
