I used to be a regular reader of his, however with the recent advent of the pay wall I'm visiting alot less often.

It should also be noted that punctuality isn't one of his strong points. Used to be that race analysis would be up within 24 to 48 hours but more recently he has been very slow to upload the reports, even going so far as to apologise for their lateness, and now even provides a subscriber report in brief to make up for it which isnt really up to standard in my opinion. I'd say that he has probably taken on too much in terms of work load and its definitely having a negative impact on the site.

I admire his work but there's too many reasons not to visit regularly anymore.

I don't know if its the same in the rest of the world but here in the UK its ridiculous the amount of personal attacks on journalists who just report what they see and hear. Its not helped by our government who try to do everything to muzzle the press, especially when it comes to the excesses we see in claims for expenses that would get a normal citizen locked up.
