Relaunching! Sorta!
« on: March 11, 2009, 10:50:35 PM »

By now you probably noticed the new forum up near the top of the board. Fan_Since_64 and I have ended our long-running feud over which CSI is the best one, and we're happy to say he's back. To celebrate, he's updating all his old articles and I'm going to watch from right outside his window. Right now he's completed the first of what should be at least 8 updates. :yay

We're officially retiring all the old fake news articles, and would like to thank them for everything they've given us over the last 8 years. Now the front page will be just 64's hard work, unless we change our minds and start doing fake news again. Maybe a series of lolcat-styled images featuring players and coaches.

So that I don't have to deal with any more content management systems, 64's hard work will have its own section of the board. The newest ones will show up on the new front page, unless I've completely screwed up.

Zero hour, Michael. It's the end of the line. I'm the firstborn. I'm sick of playing second fiddle. I'm always third in line for everything. I'm tired of finishing fourth. Being the fifth wheel. There are six things I'm mad about, and I'm taking over.

Thanks for the intro, GF  :yay

For those of you who remember the Greatest Eagles by the Numbers series, it's on its way back. There are profiles that need to be updated and changes to be made to the list itself - it was originally compiled in 2000 and we've had some players come along since then who clearly deserve recognition (sorry Joe Muha, but Brian Westbrook has left you in the dust at #36). There are also some numbers where I've re-thought my original selections - so be prepared for some surprises.

For those of you who are new to the series, it started out one evening when I sat down and started listing the best players in Eagles history by uniform number (I know, I know, I need a life!  :P ). I posted the first 30 (or so) on the Eagles message board (where CF's founders all met) and was so overwhelmed by the positive response that I began to develop it into a series of player profiles. GF graciously offered to make CF the home of the profile series, and after years of neglect, I'm reintroducing them. I hope to update twice a week (more or less), so stay tuned.

Feel free to share feedback on each - stories (PG has led the way on Tony Franklin. Thanks!  ;) ), reactions (does this selection make you happy? Ill? Bring back memories, good or bad? Did I blow the selection? Hey, it's hardly an exact science, and the Eagles haven't exactly had All-Pros at every number!  ;) ), etc. There are still ties (two- and three-way) at several numbers, which I know is an annoyance to some, but if you can choose between, for example, Bucko Kilroy, Bob Brown, and Jerry Sisemore at #76, be my guest!

I guess that covers it for now - there is room for developing other Eagles history-related material, but that's for another day. Unless GF and I start fighting over CSI again!  :-D

New banner is up, too. If you were on during the five minutes I spent getting it up, keep refreshing until it stops looking blurry.

Just noticed it.  You're gonna have to change it again once the Eagles trade Sheldon for Boldin.

Along with this one, Mad-Lad got the all Joe Banner banner ready for when McNabb gets traded for Cutler and Sheldon gets traded for Boldin.

True (or Wilbert), but I just wanted to drop a Witherspoon reference.
