    It's not the biggest, nor the busiest, but IMO it is by far the best.

    Full of the most knowledgeable, fun, witty, and honest members of any site going....bar none.
    Before you insult a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you insult him, you'll be a mile away, and have his shoes.

    Does this mean we should erase everything except the member database and restart as a brand-new site?

    Then we'll win the cup this November and in 2015 too...right?

    Look. We can go round and round about this all the live long day. Let's keep it simple. I embody amazement. Can you dig on that? Good. Then meet me on the corner of rock and roll, and bring a flask of something that burns.

    I don't know about feeling old reading this thread, but maybe watching this clip...

    Thank you, for all you have done for this site.

    This site has helped many, myself included, become a more intelligent and stronger Eskimo fan.

    Yes, it was a long suspension for you but hey, you had it coming.

    Congratulations to all the people who have kept the site going. Like so many things in life, there will come an "end" and when it does you will look back on it and realize that you took something good for granted.

    Hopefully fans/members can spare a few pennies here and there to help contribute to the site, and help Ang out with all he does to keep this going. And you get a cool red note under your name!

    If I recall posts from awhile back that I've read, it's been done before.

    If you want to know what the site looked like back in early September 2003, let's take a look back through time:

    How about the 34 registered users...haha.

    The site was only a week old then.

    I remember when the biggest discussions we had were the coaching abilities of Tom Higgins...

    I miss those days!

    That really is awesome!

    I remember first coming here and lurking for the first couple months before finally joining.

    Later of course the adjustment of the brighter and cleaner look that evolved into what we have now.

    This site really did reignite my passion for the ball club...as well as open my eyes to views of other fans towards us and our club (especially after the cup win in 2005).
