wow...lot of people still alive, good to see.

GreekLightning and Kneelb4Zod left during the John Miller dictatorship and started another website I remember. It had a great message board for a while, but I think that site is dead now (I can't remember what it was called).

What's the new chat room?

I'm still around a littlew...but the advantages that I used to get here are not as big anymore...not because of DS, but because FF has gone Hollywood, and all the TV guys spout advice based on wacked scoring formats and head to head formats..just throw out a name from the week before, and viola!....don't need experts to count the most TDs...I mostly look around here when I need confirmations...or to be talked out of something... and drafting with the MVP board is just what I do....

I guess I'd call myself an old shark. Think I got started w/ DraftSharks back in '06.

I've been around quite a long time. I would love to know when, it had to be not long after the site started. I first played fantasy in 1996 and don't recall too many years without the help of DS. I was never a huge contributor in the forums, but absolutely loved reading all the great sharks people are naming in this thread. The lack of forum activity has been a loss of what I always considered a big resource.

The "joined" date in my profile was when I first posted to the boards. I think I went on a rant about how much better Cedric Benson was than people were giving him credit for. :oops:

These days I post when I think I have something to add (whether I really do or not :D ).

Maybe I can hit the 5,000 mark this year.


I'm still around, too, think I've been here since '99...just don't have much time for posting.

Horns fan, I'd swear that I was the one arguing with you about Benson...I always despised that guy!

It was called Dynasty Rogues, and was great for a while. Roland Wood, Tainter and Speed Kills were all involved, as well, I think. Pretty sure Speed works on a site called Dynasty Football Warehouse now...all were great posters.

Right...Dynasty Rogues that's it. Thanks Simakos! It was driving me nuts for a while...and I was a member even.

Agreed... not many old schoolers left out there. I remember when a question was asked it would get double digit replies and these days, we're lucky to get one.
I'll still be around to give my .02 (Probably not worth the .02)

Been with DS since 1999. Where is the best thread to ask questions. Tough start to year for DS preseason rankings and breakout players.

Still here getting punched in the face since what, 2006? South Dakota is still strong, but we already had our first snowflakes in Yankton, last Wednesday evening, so buckle up kids, the winter is going to be a bitch. Plan FF lineups accordingly for harder than normal conditions IMHO.

I remember those guys. rwood use to give me some great advice until I joined a league of his. I was also a member over at Dynasty Rogues and I'm still in a league with speed.
