    After taking everyone's suggestions from a while back, I have just finished our new front page, which now also incorporates the recent forum posts along with local news headlines. It will be updated each day from now on during the offseason, along with our 'Rumor Mill' which will be tracking potential free agents.

    Let me know your thoughts.

    (NOTE: It's optimized for IE, while we're still working on making it look perfect in FireFox.)

    VERY VERY NICE! Thanks Ian ... you're the best! :cool3:

    I especially like the the three major news paper topics. That will save
    time and make your home page a first stop read. :rocker:

    Looks good in FF (1.5.0.1). I would, however, fill in the bottom-right area so it goes out to the right edge of the main content.

    Thanks for letting us know it was a new front page. (It looks great.) At first I thought someone realized I can no longer see and made the front page big just for me.

    Thanks for all your hard work Ian. This is a great site.

    What I like is that a lot more information is close at hand. Good work. One more suggestion: try to change something as often as possible, daily if you can. If the same news item appears in the main space for a week, the site looks stale. But this is a very significant improvement. Kudos.

    I'll be updating it daily, and more frequently throughout the day should the need arise. I took a break after the season ended, but you'll see more frequent updates going forward.

    It does look sharper and good info where you can notice it.

    And, the Parking Lot continues to be a feature.:rocker:

    Thanks & welcome to the board. A friend of mine did the art work so I can take no credit for that.

    Now that's exactly what I mean--the Mar.3 front page. Nothing stale about that. Lots to read and think about. First rate work, Ian.
