Where will you be heading when you say goodbye?

It seems as if most of the posters I have stuck around for are fed up with the changes made here at CBS.  I think my time here is coming to an end as well.  It is getting too hard and slow to navigate and now I won't recognize most posters becasue they will be forced to change avatars they have had for years.  This place is not the same community I once knew and looked forward to coming to every day.  Now I dread it.

So, where are you heading to?  Where is the safe haven where we can go back to being ourselves?

Red.

I have not known you that long but this community is what you make it to be.  We all get fed up with idiot posters and people who bug the hell out of you but just ignore them.

Personally like a bad penny I am staying put, granted I have gravitated more and more to my team board but I still check in on my favorites from time to time.

To those who go,

and those I know,

I say goodbye to you.

Thanks for the joy

you gave this boy

I bid you a fond farewell.

But don't forget

it was here we met

our words will always be here.

Should you return

or come back to learn

I for one will cheer!

Sucks that I had to get rid of my "Grumpy" avatar. Grumpy is me, in real life....

 

Ah well...so Lou Gehrig is OK, apparently

Hey you. Why don't you and your purple hair come over to offtopicsports.yuku.com. Most of the Rooters have migrated over there, in The Crew thread.

We miss ya.

red, I used to frequently have blast here at CBS, but now they're making it way too stodgy and sterile for my tastes.

I do most of my Bills football stuff on: www.realfootball365.com , and my messing around on: offtopicsports.yuku.com

Deion's at yuku, and so are momluvs and Supercharger509. Amirrr is at RF365.

The only reason I ever come back here is to find you and some of my other buddies, although DawnieBrat and many others have left permanently.

I will probably stick around if I can find an acceptable avatar I can live with.  I found out tonight that M1ghty Mouse added a basketball to his cartoon avatar and it got accepted.  I already belong to the dull boards at ESPN for fantasy sports information and a Yahoo Colorado fantasy baseball chat board.  Neither compares to the diversity of information found on this board which the admins are trying to discourage.  I also looked at yuku about three weeks ago but it looked mostly like the people from the "fived and faved" and dookie threads formerly found on this board.  I probably will spend more time on financial threads so I can learn to make money with my savings instead of losing it all.

Red,

I guess the new avatar guidelines don't bother me that much.  I've had my share of pretty girl av's, and plenty of sports related ones too.  I figure it's a case of the pendulum swinging too far to the right at CBS, and it will come back at some point.  I've only tried one other board, and it stunk compared to CBS.  There were very few members, and almost nobody over early 20's. 

I can see both sides of not showing ratings.  Our reputations dropping, eh..... who cares.  I think we are all overreacting to these changes.

I'll stick it out here.  I think it is more likely more of my friends will stay here than all go to some other site at more or less the same time. 

If you do go somewhere else, pm me and let me know where.  I'll come on and say hi.  Who knows, I may even hang out there for a while.
