I just want to thank Ian and all his efforts to keep this site continuously going after what has been a very LONG offseason and the longest offseason since January of 2003,which was the last time the Patriots did not play a few weeks into the new year which equals about 28 weeks of pure speculation of what is going to happen the next season. Remember,back then in 2003,there was no Patsfans.com and I am sure you,like I had gone nuts wondering how to survive until the following September kickoff,having to resort to watching Cold Pizza and ESPN sportscenter for information . Its been great to talk football after all the team went through in 2008 by losing our franchise player and missing the playoffs by a tiebreaker. Without Patsfans I am sure I speak for everyone here that we would go absolutely stir crazy without talking about football and especially the Patriots during spring and summer when virtually little news happens,this site keeps us in a "there is no NFL offseason mode" and for that its great to be a part of. For those who have yet to donate to this site or have yet to renew their membership they paid for last year,please do so - You know you don't want to visit those other crappy Patriots forums,so help out a great cause...and a great site. NOW LETS GET ONTO TRAINING CAMP,PRESEASON AND THE WONDERFUL FREAKING REGULAR SEASON!!! - GO PATS!!!
