What Happened to This Site?

Post by cfldave » Mon Aug 12, 2013 9:42 am

There used to be hundreds of posters to this site, routinely. It was clearly the best CFL site around.Where did they all go? How do we get them all back?

I am a relative new comer to this site (2011) but I know it was very popular at one point, I have wondered where everyone have went as well, would be cool if some of those former posters came back. The more the merrier!

I was thinking this too. It doesn't coincide with my 1st post, does it?

Not really, I could swap the software and go with something similar to facebook but that would loose all the content.

Back in the sites heyday ... facebook wasn't what it is, no twitter and not every team had it's own fan site

It's the story of television isn't it. Used to be a few channels with massive audiences now the medium is fractured with thousands of specialty channels and of course web streaming.
Maybe 13thman needs to find a niche it can specialize in.

Do you have contact with any of the old posters on other sites?

I've seen some of those team forums. They're brutal.

Just keep posting. I've seen so many posters disappear from the team based forums because of the nastiness and cliquishness of it. I hope no one ever takes anything I say seriously.

Here's a burst of intelligence from a Ticat fan from their forum...

BC Wins by 3 and CFL Refs Still Suck!!!

Postby BIGCAT » Sat Aug 31, 2013 12:15 am
Well the Tiger-Cats made a close one to a team like BC that was supposed to have a High Powered Offense so much for that in a 3 point victory and watching Mike Benevitis pump his hand in celebration I would love to shove it up his arse the next game!!

The CFL Refs, Andre Preloiux and his crew sucked, once again demonstrating lop sided calls in BC 's favor, missed interference calls on Ti-Cat Receivers too many to mention? I think CFL refs are so bad they will turn many fans away from attending games all together if they continue to demonstrate their lack of professional ability, the just SUCK each and every CFL ref!!!
This is the kind of crap that turns me off of these forums.

I dedicate this song to you...

Couldn't agree more, everyone knows the refs were all rooting for the TiCats :rotf:

Here's one of my favorite posts of all time. It came from the Argo forum...

I'm glad I clicked this thread because I got to read quite possibly the most unintentionally hilarious post in the history of internet forums.
This thread is hilarious.
