    First I really think the site is coming along and turning into a top quality fan site. It has taken some time but it is getting there.

    Just a couple things that I think could make it better. I think that people should have a way to EDIT things they may have posted whether it be to the messageboards or comments on peoples fan pages or photos. Most any other messageboard has this feature, so that when you are logged in you can go back to your posts and you will have an edit option. I myself always find spelling errors or silly things I wish I could go fix but can't. Guess that is what happens when you do "drunk" posting though!!! LOL (just kidding...kinda)

    Also, I have high speed internet and this has to be one of the slowest sites that I browse daily. Maybe it because it is "flash content" heavy but it still shouldn't be as slow as it is??? Maybe a look into the server...I don't know, but it gets frustrating. I always get errors when doing simple things like uploading pictures or changing my scrapbook around.

    Lastly...the game page that streams the play by play and the live chat. Why does that page have to keep refreshing??? It should like in the old days since the flash content can recieve and display information in real time so I don't understand that. It gets very frustrating for those of us who like to use the game day chat and right in the middle of a good conversation or in the middle of typing something the page goes blank to refresh. Then we have to re-enter the chat and re-enter our username. There must be a way to stop this. If the play-by-play part is the reason for the page refreshing then why not make that page in a seamless frame so the chat part displays seperatly and would not refresh with the play-by-play content? Just a thought...

    Ok...I am done for today :-)

    peace out,

    These are great suggestions! Thanks Daddy.

    I think being able to edit your stuff would be cool. We'll have the developers look into that. At least for the messageboards you would think it would be easy.

    We've been trying to figure out page load as well. We do have a lot of stuff going on behind the scenes. I'm not sure how much is the flash content rendering and how much is the backend database calls. But apologize for the slowness and this is something that is really important for us.

    Makes sense about the games page. One reason this was put into place was an issue with the NBA feed. It was getting stuck (on all the team websites). This was one way we could get it to work, however it is at a cost... we'll look at ways so it wouldn't effect the game chat.

    Once again, thanks for the input!

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
