    Even if something happens in the next 2 months the damage is already done. They built a following of posters between 2005-2021 and after 9 months only 5% are left here. So whatever happens in the next two months, if it happens, is not going to bring back all the posters they lost. No one recovers from losing 95% of their customers due to poor planning.

    I do get your point, and I'm as frustrated as anyone, but those numbers seem wildly exaggerated to me

    I don't think they care so much about losing any percentage of traffic. Having a lot of people stroll through a shopping mall doesn't mean much if they're just window shopping and stealing grapes and cherries for free, along with their coupons they can cash in for free stuff.

    It's the quality of the traffic, not the quantity. The more trolls that scatter off elsewhere is actually blissful for us. This isn't going to be a basic budget site as most others. Remember we had Loshak as our video pro for how long so let's not pretend SBR was a market leader of anything in its old format.

    Stay or go or bounce around all that's out there. Since all forums are so interconnected I'm not sure any forum is going to care either way

    Agree 100% with pavy….the damage may be done.

    Prime example is my time on here…used to spend probably an hour of each day checking sports content/reading funny threads. Now with the current content, it’s probably about 5-10 minutes each day.

    Hopefully football rejuvenates the site…but it may be too late.

    With all due respect Shari.... I don't know if that was taking a shot at Loshak or not? But, take a look around during SBR's prime. Everyone played a role as to "traffic". Even "true" posters that were here... and still are here... played a huge role for SBR. I can think of 30 screen names that made me laugh my ass off. Loshak did his job... he had his own personality.... everything to me jived together. Made things lively and entertaining. I enjoyed "The Prick" as well. I liked the format. Everyone had their own personality... made this place go. To me... NOT 1 person made it go. EVERYONE MADE IT GO.

    I get it... we all get old. And we lose our mojo... our health... etc. The dude that came in to fill "The Prick"??? You kidding me??? You could of made a better selection by spinning the bottle. Didn't have the "personality" for it. It was like making a purchase on WISH. Generic garbage.

    I don't know the details to everything why John sold etc. That's on him. Apparently sold at the right time. Smart move. Not knocking the new owner at all... but there was still "rhythm" here. Now the rhythm is all gone. The only people that log on now.... have made friends here over the years.... enjoy reading each other's posts.

    Yes... even you Shari played a huge part at SBR over the years.... Optional too.

    But back to the suggestion of losing traffic.... all that's left are the the die hards. You lose them.... the last person... do the honors and flip the switch.... it's lights out.

    If you think this is bad check out what the SBR brass put together at the other place where they are using your stiffed betpoints to pay posters to post to try to scam you into posting over there. At least if there is a football contest here, it might actually work this year. The place was in freefall and you can see where it was headed.

    The new ownership is not too concerned about what is going on now. They are playing for the future. May not be one by the time that comes around but at least there are a few things going on.

    Less is more.

    No Thomorino, no Big Daddy, and all the other assholes I didn't name.

    Rather have 20 ten year plus regular veterans here than forty assholes.

    Less=More

    Simple math.

    Only reason some are hanging around is they think there may be value in betpoints, its definitely not for the reviews or forum content. The store is make or break and I’m leaning break, if it ever even opens.

    I just did this.

    You receive a renewal notice. Choose 3,000 bet points. They do not take them. Two days later you are renewed.

    It's free. Nothing to it.

    I think I glanced across the street a few months back.... I read some threads... there's a lot of dudes that I miss reading their jokes... and comments. But for the ones who have stayed here.... this is all I need. If those posters want to stay over there... it's fine. I don't know how some people can scan 3-4 "other sports forums" and post every day. 1 site is good for me. And if this site fails.... maybe that's destiny... that's life.
