    yea man im not feeling this either...i've seen bbw grow from hoops city to the ipb that it was and now to move to a new completely different site that is nothing like our previous? tony must have been out of his mind yesterday accepting the money or he was just being selfish and let us get bought out...</p>

    </p>

    this is just like barbershop where calvin took the money from the pimp and sold his shop, except he got the shop back..were never getting our old IPB back again.</p>

    </p>

    i think im gone and im probably going to migrate over to RBS..</p>

    What was your original user name?</p>

    You guys need to fix up the template of the site and the speed issues. After that there's no problem.

    the site isnt usually this slow....its a complication with the transfer and its being addressed now...its a very fast site when working correctly...btw, when I 1st came here I was using MSNs browser and it slowed my down a ton....for the best performance, makre sure you are using Internet Explorer or Firefox

    Welcome guys. And stick around. You simply don't know yet how hard these guys work (denny, petey, mike, and the rest). </p>

    Stay and witness something that won't be like when you guys moved from hoops city to ipb and the rest. This site in the end will be the biggest sports forum in the whole wide web.</p>

    </p>

    Stick around is all I can say. </p>

    I'm telling you man. I'm not kidding.</p>

    Be a part of this. What's the point in going to another site where there'll be no activity. </p>

    I keep hearing people say "Goodbye to BBW", which is ridiculous because you guys are BBW....a forum is its posters, and thats you guys....a month ago I was NFL-Forums, now Im Sportstwo, and all the other guys from NFL-Forums are Sportstwo also...I encourage you guys to stick around for 10 days of solid posting and see what these guys are about....this is our forums, yours and mine, now we all are Sportstwo....if we embrace it together, it could be somethign special

    </div>I hate it when people think that their site is the only active site on the internet...</p>

    You guys don't seem to get it. We had something special at BBW with the set-up, the members, and the forum itself. It is completely gone now. You can say that everything that was there is here, but that will never be true.</p>

    </p>

    I'd like to hear from Tony/Combs, why were you guys so clandestine in telling us about this move? THe board went offline for 'Maintenance' then it turns out that we've combined with another site. How much money did we just make Tony/COmbs richer?</p>

    Apparently - it's all Combs idea to sell the site. Balla has nothing to do with it, but thats what I just heard.

    Not our site. This is your site as well. Your community, basically you just transfered your forums to this site. Nothing has changed, it has only gotten better. You haven't even given it a chance yet. You guys just keep saying you don't like it. At least give it a week. </p>

    </div></p>

    I considered going onto your site and posting about the move. The issue is we couldn't have hundreds of you guys coming over here and creating accounts or it would have greatly complicated the move. For this I am sorry, in retrospect, but that's the unvarnished truth. There's nothing sinister going on here.</p>

    We agree with you that BBW was and continues to be something special. All we can ask is that you give us a chance for a few days before you really break up BBW.</p>

    As for Tony, I never met the guy and never heard of him until you guys started posting about him today. FWIW</p>

    </p>

    Regards</p>
