Waaaay longer than 10 years. ;D

Thanks for sharing, that's a cool little blast from the past.

Hope you're well Rick.

It's crazy that the 'Rivals.com' network was 16 years ago.  That was weird times.

I remember back when Canada79 would post here when he lived in Hamilton.  I honestly don't know how long ago that was.  I just lurk here now.

About the same for me, exactly.

And Rick , I'm guilty too, not saying thanks enough. I have kicked in the odd donation though.

Anybody remember, and miss, Shayne?

Stebro and I were friends on a completely unrelated forum, he introduced me to this place around 2000/2001 I believe.

I lived in Canada for a year in 2003 and I'd been on this site for several years at that point, so it might even have been a little before that.

I remember Shayne, I sent him over a copy of Football/Championship manager back in the day, he was a good egg.

16 years for me, same username since I started.

Post totals mean very little in identifying long-term members since the site has been around in various forms and names, along with completely crashing a time or two and having to start from scratch.

I remember meeting up with a few folks from here years ago at Morty's and had a blast. Rick, Rob, Darryl, Warrior, BMan, and Colonel Korn were a few of the fellow attendees.

Anyone remember Sandra and her love of Jonus Hoglund?

How about Flyer trolls Salzy and Juicer?
There was another aggravating member from Revelstoke B.C. named B.I.D. (Ballard Is Dead).

MGro and the devastating news of her tragic death?

Thank you for all you've done over the years to keep this place going Rick, it's been an interesting ride. I hope all is well!

I do like this place a great deal.

I have been around here for almost that long. I hardly ever post if at all and although I am a Flyers fan I am still in Toronto and care about the Leafs too. Rooting interests aside, I love reading the insightful and intelligent analysis here by most of the posters. That is why I still come back day after day.

Whatever happened to O'Malley? And also for a troll GhostofJFJ wasn't half bad.

Ah ... Salzy Juicer GhostofJFJ KeepersDome Keon14 all those guys trolled with style. What fun that was.

For people who complain that the site isn't what it used to be -- well, you're right. But consider that for the past 10 years there has been very little good news to talk about. When the Leafs get better I predict you'll see a surge in posters and I for one will be happy to see it.

When I first discovered tmlfans, it was around 2005.  I was perusing the web in search of a forum for discussing the Leafs and then some, and when I came across this one, I enjoyed reading the banter between posters.  The humour made me laugh out loud at times.  It put me in a good mood (as my father had passed away the year before).

When I finally joined tmlfans the same year, I was using my Palm Treo, much to the chagrin of some posters who weren't too familiar with the looks of the posts.  I understood that but at the time, I did not own a computer.

It has been approximately 10 years that I've been a member of this site.

Anyways, I'd like to give an appreciative nod to Rob & Rick, and to the administrative staff, for keeping this site running at top notch, and, to give us Leafs fans a place to vent, rant, cry, and cheer!  :) :)

As I posted in the other thread, this year will be my 19th.  In the past few years, family commitments have prevented me from following hockey as much as I used to thus I don't post here like I did in the past, but I still check in all the time. 

Where's Rocky?  Where's Mike Fish?  There was also a rather caustic truck driver that posted here during that era who ruffled a few feathers.  He used ellipses between each thought.  My favorite troll of all time had to be Salzy.  I admit I took the bait a couple times, as he insisted that not a single Leaf d-man could crack the Flyers' lineup.  This was when McCabe and Kaberle were putting up 60+ points!  What a peach.  But the poster I miss the most is Ballard Is Dead.  I remember when his screen name was "32 and counting".  Good god, today he'd be "49 and counting".   

My screen name was derived from the pothead phrase "Killer Green Buds".  That connected with the Leafs nickname of "The Buds", and of course it was the Mike Smith era with all the attendant focus on Russian players, so KGB also made sense in that way.

And it was from the then-PenaltyBox.com that I learned of 9/11.  I was living in Taiwan at the time and had just finished teaching my 7-9PM class.  Before heading home from my school, I stopped in to the computer room to check the news.  I came here and saw a thread titled something like "Big News from New York".  For a second I assumed it had something to do with Eric Lindros, who had just signed for the Rangers, but quickly found out it was something far more serious.  I raced home and spent the night watching CNN International. 

Thanks for all the time and money you've sunk into this site, Rick (and all others involved in keeping it afloat).

I was here during the Rivals and Penaltybox.com -days as well and although I stopped paticipating in the exchange here a decade or so ago, I have continued to check this site almost daily since. It's amazing to see a fan resource like this keep up the good quality for such a long time. Back in the late 90's - early 00's this was a (relativly) safe refuge from the Rob Blake trade suggestions and the like.
      Truly a feat worthy of recogniton, Rick and crew.

I don't remember the exact year but it's probably been 10-12 years at least.  Funny thing I was looking for a place to talk Leafs and another hockey board site declined my registration request (like what?), then I found this place and never looked back.

Last year was the first in a while that I didn't watch most of the games, too awful to sit through even though I was all for the tank, but I'm cautiously optimistic that the team will be much more fun to watch starting this year.

Just stopped by for a visit after a long absence & noticed this thread.  I started here as a Flyers fan during the 2003 playoffs, & had the pleasure of interacting with everyone here during the Flyers/Leafs series in both 2003 & 2004.  After that, I got to know many of the posters here & stayed around.  The rules were different back then.....plenty of big personalities on the board.  Verbal jousting was both art & entertainment in those days.  Good times without a doubt.  We even had political threads, the famous gay marriage argument thread, & yearly poster awards.  Once the previous board crashed was about the time that I was here less frequently.

I don't get here very often anymore, given that my job & basically life in general have gotten more demanding.   The Austin Matthews game last night made me think of this place again.  Both the Leafs & Flyers are on the upswing now with infusions of good young talent.  Hopefully, they meet in the playoffs again & make new memories that rival the days of Sundin, Domi, Darcy Tucker, Roenick, Sami K, etc.

I started visiting during the Rivals days and remember when it switched over to tmlfans. I haven't been around much in the last couple of years, though, and just happened in today for a visit. Really appreciate all the hard work you put into the site over the years Rick (and Darryl, and Jay...).

Mike Augello, he used to be a frequent caller to Leafs Talk with Andy Frost back in the day as well. He is the Leafs blogger for Eklund these days.

Speaking of guys named Mike, remember Mike in NYC? Interesting fellow, had a thing for streetcars and trains along with being a Leafs fan.

When I started mgro was a regular (maybe around 2000?). I started as Silverleaf, changed to Leaflifer, and now I'm Mostar (named after a road near me).

We had some good flyer trolls back then. Anyone remember Salzy?

I backed off the forum quite a bit because I loathed Burke (as a GM). and had nothing good to say, but I've certainly kept a close eye on this team and couldn't be happier now.

14 yrs & counting for me too. Remember, J-Ho and her Hoglund fascination. Salzy and Juicer, oh my what a pair they were.

Oh yeah - Juicer.
