    I don't know if it is just me.but I've noticed some changes to the site lately.Mainly here once I log into and bring up the boards here.What with the ebay links for merchandise lately and more recently links to Miguels salary cap page and a few others.Much to my liking this page has replaced my need to go elsewhere for my patriots news.Being so far from Massachusetts I really rely pretty heavily on this site and I am thankful for it.So.Just a thread of appreciation to Ian,the moderators,and last but not least all my fellow posters.You are all badass folks.Take Care.Thanks Again!!!

    Ian rocks. This site kicks butt. And lately, despite too many Branch threads (mine included), there's been a lot of good, smart, in-depth writing - back to what we used to expect more often here at patsfans.com.

    And don't forget to vote on the SI site.

    Ditto - this is the first and last place I go for Patriots news - 'nuff said.

    - I get it here first and get instant fan reaction all at the same time. What's not to like? What more does one need?

    Great job, and Thanks to Ian for hosting and creating a great site - but the quality members deserve a ton of credit as well - and I'm sure Ian would be the first to sayso

    I appreciate that. I made some changes to the header to include some of the content from the site, along with some navigational links. Nothing major, just trying to integrate some things better.

    As for the forum, the moderators and all of you deserve the credit. As I've said, if not for all of you this would be an empty forum that wouldn't be too useful to anyone. I've gotten to know a lot of great people over the years, and it's made every late night worth every minute of it.

    The header change was a good Idea.Definately.May I ask Ian,How this site is still free for us?I understand if you dont care to get into details.Its just too good to be true.For a site that can and DOES compare to the likes of the ESPN's and NFL.Com's as far as quality.Its great,if it were to ever come down to some sort of subscription fee.I'd pay it gladly and never ask a single question.

    I couldn't believe the site stayed up on Friday. I'd be interested how many page views/second Ian was doing around 4:00 pm . Keep up the great work, man.

    :rofl:

    Suffice to say, I'm hoping your forum name is referring to Troy Brown, #80 and not something else entirely.

    Does that help you with advertisters and, therefore, keeping it free here? And will the SI poll help in that regard, as well?

    I lurked here for a couple months before joining, and then a couple more before I posted. I must say the posters here have been incredibly nice to me and very welcoming.

    It is a great site!

    I'd have a hard time ever going to a subscription based fee for the site, as I hate the thought of charging for something I believe should be free. For now I can continue to handle it, although we're starting to reach pretty intense bandwidth transfer so I'm probably going to have to do something sooner rather than later to move the site. But I feel pretty confident that we can keep things the way they are.

    I appreciate the kind words, and thank you for being a member here.

    Ian

    I'm sure it would. We haven't really pursued advertisers as aggressively this year, and the SI poll has also brought in some new users. I picked up the new issue yesterday, it was pretty cool to see the site listed there.

    You've been a cool poster so far also its good to have some ladys on the board. To many men can be a bad thing.

    That's a quite an endorsement Brownfan80. That would make an even better bumper sticker:

    "PatsFans.com. It's Even Better than Porn"
