Rather than alternatives, I say support the source and get it from Crunchy.
I hope that did not come of offensive, not intentional.
So i don't get this, is crunchyroll the guys who do the subs or do they now do the whole episode (animation and all)? If so what does this mean? Can't say that it matters much to me since i know the manga so the text won't mean much if there's a difference. I am just curious if this means that the animation or the dates being released will change or what is the big deal?
No fresh, Crunchy just does the subs and then post's it after an hour of the original Japanese tv episode. They're not affiliated with the animation team, other than receiving the current weeks episode to sub and host.
It is available for premium members, after an hour. The rest, will have to wait for about a week.

I knew this day was coming, because that's what happens with "major" anime subbing projects.
Maybe you could explain to me what the big deal about crunchyroll doing the subs is if it's different than what I've just mentioned.
I like that crunchy offers the subs, but I think some people don't like the idea for the same reasons you mentioned.

So people are complaining about some mixed up words that really could be translated in a various amount of ways? (manga scans aren't always accurate)
Or are these people complaining that they can't download the episode for free? (which is a laugh since you'll always be able to download things for free off the net)
DB dropped Naruto when it was picked up by ceunchyroll, other fansubbers picked it up shortly. For those wondering: Crunchyroll kind of sucks. They reduce the resolution of any show they air to fit into their crappy little player. I don't watch any anime there nor will I watch "subs" based on crunchyroll rips. Not sure how much it will effect Bleach, should any one choose to use their services, since last I looked (which was a long time ago .____.) Bleach wasn't broadcast in HD. No worries, Bleach is to popular not to get fansubbed based on TV raws. Any group that's wants attention (and big download totals) will pick it up within the next few weeks. With DB out of the way, probably many groups.
Webonomic 101: Whatever can be turned into data will be free. The old morality no longer applies. Multi-billion dollar publishers/record companies/TV studios should never be pitied. Napster introduced the mainstream to filesharing almost 15 years ago, since in that time not a single traditional entertainment company has figured out how to integrate the internet into their business plan they deserve to lose money. Through out history new technology not only changes the way people do business, sometimes even the entire economic model. The internet is one such innovation. If a company can not put enough money into R&D to find a new model they can no longer claim to be a competitive entity.
