Weekly NFL stuff from AP

    We do a weekly (Friday) NFL section during the season and this year, since the new Webfeeds provide much more varied sources of content (read: filler) on a day-to-day basis, I suggested to my publisher that we ditch the pre-packaged agate capsules (that move at a dreadfully inconvenient time) and go to all copy. I remember AP nationally moves like a 'pro picks' thing during the week, but can anyone else remember the staples of weekly NFL coverage both in your area and from national AP?

    My boss told me yesterday that we'll no longer be getting pre-packaged NFL agate from CanWest because it's been discontinued.

    Oh. Considering that's where we also got ours, that makes the decision-making that much easier, don't it?
