A lot of you remember the old Prodigy boards, a good many of us were on them talking sports. I also was a member of GatorCountry ran by Ray “Solari” Hines who had started a couple of forums on the internet before GatorCountry really caught on. One of them was The Skybox which he had discontinued. Anyway, as Prodigy was shutting down a lot of us wanted to hang together. I was on Spring Break with my wife at her sister’s house in Atlanta on a whim wrote to Ray to see if he would be willing to let us use Skybox. The same evening, he had it set up and made me the moderator/administrator. I sent out invites to quite a few of the fans. At that time Gators, Vols, Irish were the main ones I had positive relations with and I did not make a general announcement as quite frankly there were some fans, I was very wary of bringing on board. I also did not want to be the final authority as an administrator so approached Terry and Tom McCord to be equal partners with me. A Gator, a Vol and an Irish. I never had a reason to regret that decision. What I do regret is that over time I sort of phased out. Tom also did less as time went by leaving Terry to be the main guy and he has done an admirable job. Anyway, I have done some soul searching and don’t really understand my fading back, age, internet as well as other factors. Also, in the past I had some pretty heated discussions with many of the members here, quite a few that I have since gotten to know at a different level and have great respect for and hope to be more positives in my relationships down the road. I also want to make clear that I consider Terry as the head moderator here as he has stuck with it from the start to now and I have great respect for him. It has been my pleasure to meet him and the McCords several times. I do not have any intention of disrupting how most of things go here but also do not see any reason we have to have political discussions on the main Sports board and see no reason to tolerate those who cannot comply.
