Wouldn't be averse to a half a dozen paragraph summary after each AFL Game  on this site either. Full bias permitted and would be quite beneficial to the sick, eccentrically needy and absentees. I would read it...

I've been involved in digital publishing for 13 years now, and have been involved in countless website rebuilds and reboots. The feedback is generally harsh and overwhelmingly negative, because people hate change. It can be very demanding mentally because you put so much time and effort into building something, and people hate you for it.

Good read but Ash Browne is a Hawks fan isn’t he? 

What’s with the pictures of the St Kilda players?

The first game they covered was the Wizard Cup match between the Dees and St Kilda - the photo is post-match.

Yeah. It's a photo of a young Nick Reiwolt and Stewart Loewe.

When did you start using the Aimoo forum software? That site is still around believe it or not.

We would have been using it then. Not sure when we started the actual Forum. 

The site was created in Round 7 of 2000. The forum didn't start until later. I don't believe we used the Demonland.com domain until 2001. We were using a free hosting service until then.

The Match Centre back in those days was pretty cool, albeit clunky. I remember being a young 12 year-old and I was amazed by the graphic which showed a 'dot' for a player which would link up with a second 'dot/player' and showed the movement of the ball on the ground. 

Good times.

The days of clunkyness 

I still think it's clunky. But that might just be me. I'm not generally interested in the video clips (particularly coaches' media conferences, whether post-game or at any other time) and the site seems to be hell-bent on being video-clip driven.
