Waaaay longer than 10 years. ;D

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

Hope you're well Rick.

Yep. I remember that site fondly. It's been quite a bit longer than 10 years for me too.

Approaching 15 years this May.  Crazy.  Remember that site.  Remember the people.  Wish some would come back.

I think I remember getting daily emails before it evolved into a forum. I am long time reader, selective poster.

Been here roughly 14 years at this point. Rick, I don't say it enough but thanks so much for all you do to keep this place going.

Interesting, I thought I could identify the vets by their post totals. Apparently not.

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.

I've had a couple of different names, and I rarely post.  Just like to read everyone's opinion.

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 came at the tail end of 2006, so it's almost ten years for me. Kind of crazy!
