Globe to charge for sports content?

The Boston Phoenix reports that the Globe is considering a new service called "Sportsplus," and if they go ahead with it, it will be of unfortunate interest to loyal followers of teams in New England. Among the things they'd charge a subscription fee to get to?

a) Daily columns by Bob Ryan, Dan Shaughnessy, Jackie MacMullan or other Boston Globe sports columnists

b) Sports feature stories, pre-game and post-game analysis

c) Sports articles from opposing teams' newspaper web sites

d) Daily Blogs such as Reiss's Pieces, Extra Bases and Net Minderse) Game-time Blog by Boston Globe reporter

There's a lot more if you click on the link. I can't say I don't expect more of this in the future.
