    Hello, my name is Jerry, and I'm a member from BBallWorld.us which has recently been merged with sportstwo.com</p>

    First of all, I would like to thank all the members that have had to put up with us BBW members for over the past day, I know we have not been really understanding of the situation and you people have been very patient and kind with us, so I thank you for that.</p>

    Now, I don't know exactly what Combs told you guys, but please know that we spent time on BBW making it the great website that it was, it was like a real community, and we had no idea that this was even planned. You guys have a unique website, and you guys are really kind, but please understand that this change was so sudden that we did not know what to do. And I'm not gonna lie, your site isn't exactly on the level that BBW was, and alot of the members preferred it the way it was, because like I said, we spent alot of time making it what it was. So we appreciate your kindness and patience, and we do think that your site is quite unique, but it's just not for us. It's like moving to a new house, same furniture but a different home. And even if the topics and what not have been transferred over, it still isn't BBW. Some things just weren't meant to be. And please note, we aren't a wild bunch of people, we just aren't used to this much change. Combs never should have sold the site, not to mention to just do it without giving us any heads up notice.</p>

    We have found a new place to visit, because this website is just not for us. We appreciate your efforts, I'm sure you guys will be great, so I wish you all the best of luck in the future.</p>

    <font size="1">And I don't think this was a total loss, we learned that you cant trust a guy named Combs</font></p>

    </p>

    - Jerry, (aka junot111) </p>

    Who would honestly spend 20 grand on a freaking site anyway? Unless you're rich, it's pretty pointless. I wouldn't sell my site for the world if I was the owner of BBW, I know Tony didn't do it, but still I also love how we got like 3-4 threads on the same topic, Haha. </p>

    It's not your money guys, why are you worrying so much on what kind of money was spent for the site. I truly don't understand you guys. Are you some kind of a financial advisors?

    I think it is pretty obvious a lot of the members from bbw came here and saw they couldnt hang with some of the posters here like cpfan, and kid chocolate, and now they are leaving so they dont embarass themselves. I dont blame them for leaving. they would be shamed. Obviously the manly thing to do would be to stay and try and reach the level of knowledge here, but thats not going to happen for all of them. You can tell the ones who were good posters on the board, just by them giving this forum a real chance, and i think they will be a great addition. I am glad the ones who just sit around whining and making demands are leaving. They would just be crushed in any debate that came up anyway. I would rather just keep the insightful fans. This is going to work out great.

    reverse psychology?</p>

    forgot to look up understanding and empathy in the dictionary.</p>

    image that you (a member since 2003 is says) hop on your computer on day, go into favorites and rather than arriving at sportstwo, you're at a new site and there's a big message in the middle of the screen saying SPORTSTWO.COM MEMBERS CLICK HERE.</p>

    no prior knowledge of the change, no idea why, and the new site is so different it's a pain in the butt to figure out.</p>

    you'd shrug your shoulders and not give a damn?</p>

    if so you'd be in the minority...</p>

    honestly, that happened 20 days ago....half of us are from another site....and no one freaked out like some of the BBW guys have....there was some mild unhappiness, the admins said give it a week, we did and know we all love it here.....</p>

    wait... so S2 bought another site out too?</p>

    this place just started 8 weeks ago I read...</p>

    did you get movedover without being told or did you choose to move over?</p>

    </p>

    inquiry minds want to know.</p>

    I think the biggest thing besides some ppl's sense of betrayal is how Fugly this site is compaired to bbworld. It had a nice and easy to navigate site.</p>

    you gotta do some looking around on here.</p>

    </div> He dosen't have to imagne it, it happened to him and none of the members of the football forum were acting the way some of the members of BBW are acting, they all gave it a shot for a week and found out that they like it. Sportstwo is a new forum (couple mounths old). </p>

    we were not told....I logged on and it redirected here....then i did it again because i was shocked, and we had all been togeher since 2003....it was a shock, I admit....the site looked huge to me at 1st, and i was using MSN, so it ran slower than today even.....I nearly left before I gae it a chance....but Denny Crane talked to me and told me to give it a chance...he explained that all the mods from NFL Forums would continue to be mods....that nothing would change, except the look and a few new posters would be around....so i gave him and the site a chance....and he was right....nothing did change....after 2 weeks, Im so comfortable with this site compared to any ive been on and ive been on a lot of them....the cumbersome feel,changes to the oppisite very quickly....you can literally customize these forums to be whatever you want them to be....I was a mod at the old site, im now one here, and Im glad they "merged" us into this world....

    <div class='quotetop'>QUOTE (CelticFan)</div><div class='quotemain'>wait... so S2 bought another site out too?</div>The monetary issue is of little importance to me, you, or anyone else not involved with the deal. I can't speculate if money was involved in SportsTwo's acquitision of bballworld.us or its former acquisition of nfl-forums.com, but as a regular site user, the most important aspect to me is site speed and I would imagine that that is the greatest luxury that the sites gained when they decided to join the SportsTwo community. Currently, the site appears to be rather slow, but I think it's just a complication due to the move that will be resolved shortly. </p>

    <div class='quotetop'>QUOTE </div><div class='quotemain'>this place just started 8 weeks ago I read...</div>That is correct. It's been about a month since the "launch." </p>

    <div class='quotetop'>QUOTE </div><div class='quotemain'>did you get moved over without being told or did you choose to move over?</div>I can't fully comment on the situation because I was not involved with the move at all, but, more or less, the two acquisitions went through the same process, I think. </p>
