Counting today we are 78 days away from kickoff. Why have I not seen a kickoff clock? If I were tech savy enough I would start one here. As it is this will have to do as the start. 78 days. Can't wait.

Kickoff clock? They can't even change the picture because they forgot the password.

I think it's more apathy than incompetence, myself

Pretty sure I was told it was a password issue.

It's apathy by the guy who knows the password.

You do know the difference between ignorance and apathy, don't you? *

I remember a few years back that one member gathered a pic and bio on every player, and on the remaining day (beginning with 99 days prior to opening) that matched the player(s)' number, posted it here, so that we had a profile of the entire team, one day at a time. It's too late this year, but if somebody has the anti-apathy to tackle that for next year, that would be a great thread for the summer doldrums.

* If you don't know the difference, the answer is: I don't know and I don't care

But all the guys from #77 to #99 (15 players) would be left out.

We probably don't have 99 numbers used, right? Double up a few and we can get on track!

Well damn, you failed to notice that the conversation has moved on. :angel: :wink: 8) :angel: :razz:

You probably have as much sway as I in that regard.

Go for it! Like I said, my quick look at the roster shows 15 players have numbers between 77 and 99, so I guess 15 double-ups would be required.

It all depends on how willing you are to apply pressure

You need to address it with Jim (JtS). . I think there was a plan for his son to take it over, but never got off the ground. I still maintain the yogwf.com domain name, but the servers are hosted by someone that help JtS, when I went on sabbatical. I don’t have anyway of changing anything on the servers, it would be up to the guy that Jim had hired.

That was the last I knew of it. A password can always be recovered, or another user with administrative authority can make some changes..

I guess JMac wants someone to pick up the odd numbered days. :-)

(We currently do not have a #75 on the roster)
