After being a phog net premium subscriber since the first day when Tom was still Deep Nylon, I have been forced to move on--since, with a couple of exceptions, the guys that I most enjoyed reading have moved here. Life goes on. Sigh...
I would only add that I barely made the cut (in the new subscribers registration form) for the year of birth. I saw Wilt play! Big Sigh...
Welcome. It is a small but hopefully growing community here. A bunch of us pitch in as much as we can and I think everyone one of us qualify for refugee status. Many of us go way back as well.
Good to see more posters making the move. The only reason I still post on Phog is that my premium runs until April.
A bit of an echo, but glad you're here. I'd like to see all the old Sports Bar patrons make their way over (well, most anyway -- we all have a few we didn't like so much) and plenty of the free crowd too. After a great run at TFS, the site has changed. A site like this needs active, present ownership. Whether due to personal situations or just growing bored after all these years, TFS just doesn't have that anymore. Aaron started this place and brought along a few of us as staff. None of us make money from it (including Aaron). If revenue grows, we'll find ways to put it into the community. If one of us grows bored or too busy, we'll just be replaced. You'll find the national guys really want this place to succeed so we get great insight from guys like Jerry Meyer, Gerry Hamilton, and Brian Peronni. If you post a question, it will get answered. On the local front, we have Matt Cumro, a guy with Big 12 coaching experience, doing pre- and post- game analysis for hoops and we hope for much more.

Little by little this site is picking up steam. The Phog.net premium has basically given up on the long time subscribers, which is sad. I saw a thread there where one of the contributers wasn't even getting her articles published when she submits them.... so who knows what's going on over there.
Right now this place has a small but knowlegable group and what they say seems to be pretty right on... the only thing it needs now is a bit more participation.
Live to love, love to live
Yep, just did the same thing. Have been a loyal Phog premium member since the beginning but I just can't take it anymore. From Tom's apathy to the lack of content from the new guy to the crap posters, decided now is the time to move. Been following this site since its inception and like what I see, especially the familiar names. Rock Chalk!
Now we just need to hang up some girly pictures and it can start feeling like home.
So glad you're posting a little more over here and are complimentary. We found it difficult to move on from TFS, but we feel strongly that by bringing the right people onboard from the start, we're building a community to last. We've set up rules for our mods and "founders" whereby any of us can be replaced if we're not participating. Hopefully you will find the discourse here engaging, insightful, and fun, while clearly being KU and sports centric. If you have any questions at any time, please don't hesitate to ask here or via email (I think all current members have my personal email address). Welcome aboard!
This site seems to be a little more organized and has more intelligent discussions and comments than Phog.net. To old to accept change so it's taking some time, the freeboard over there gets so totally illogical and over the edge, yet there are still some good posters who try to bring up good discussions and comments, but as I watch this site grow it appears they are slowly showing up over here.

I believe I had about 30,000 post when I left so it has been to some extent like quitting smoking cold turkey. I get how you feel. Frankly most of us wish it had never come to things like this. Seeing that community fracture pissed me off to no end. Sadly it has been going on for years when it was totally unnecessary.
Thanks for bringing up the "totally unnecessary" comment, it puts my frustration in perspective.
The Phog enjoys eating their young.
Jeez Big I've been at the Phog since the beginning and it took me 12 years to get to 5k posts.
I just have to get used to fewer posts, but that's not a bad thing. The content here is worth 1500 posts on the free board at the phog and the premium content there is completely non-existant now. This just feels more like what the premium there should have been... and maybe used to be.
It reminds me a little of a slightly less crowded version of the original sports bar Tom created. I you recall, it was by invitation prior to becoming the new premium. Smart conversation, but didn't last. This will last.
